Super delicious computer company Apple today came out against Proposition 8, which would (say it with us!) overturn gay marriage in California.
From a message left in the “hot news” section of Apple’s website:
Apple is publicly opposing Proposition 8 and making a donation of $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign. Apple was among the first California companies to offer equal rights and benefits to our employees’ same-sex partners, and we strongly believe that a person’s fundamental rights – including the right to marry – should not be affected by their sexual orientation.
Apple views this as a civil rights issue, rather than just a political issue, and is therefore speaking out publicly against Proposition 8.
You go on with your bad self, Apple! Work!
