Even Apple is jumping onboard with their support of voting NO on California’s Proposition 8 (which outlaw’s gay marriage). The company issued the following statement on their website:
October 24, 2008
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.
A person cannot help who they fall in love with – gay or straight, everyone deserves a chance to be married to the one they love. Did anyone “vote” to see if YOU could get married?? If you are a California resident please consider voting no this November on Proposition 8.
Here are a couple videos to watch that are in support of voting no to Proposition 8:
