Saudi Arabia Wants to Execute Homosexuals. Where Are The Threats From Apple and Coca-Cola?

Tim Cook of Apple denounced Georgia for its stand against judicial tyranny that is forcing people of conscience around the country to do business with a particular behavior and lifestyle they disagree with. Non-compliance is resulting in harassment, loss of business, and hefty fines.

Cook is a homosexual, and Apple is a very pro-homosexual company. When the majority of Georgians voted for men and women to put into place laws to protect them from judicial activism and lawsuits from homosexuals, he and other big-name companies threatened to boycott the state.

Cook called such liberty laws as “very dangerous.” (It’s OK for Cook to work to deny states their liberty, but it’s not OK for states to protect the liberty of their citizens.)

Unfortunately, Georgia’s governor Nathan Deal caved into the blackmail by the moneychangers and left the people of Georgia legally vulnerable to lawsuits.

The same companies that threatened Georgia continue to do business with countries that oppose same-sex sexuality: Saudi Arabia. Georgia-based Coca-Cola opposed the Georgia liberty legislation and does a great deal of business in the Wahabi nation that puts homosexuals to death. Consider this latest news story:

“The government in the Sunni Kingdom is reportedly demanding tougher punishments on those found guilty and claimed social media has caused a boom in homosexuality.

“According to Okaz newspaper, the last six months has seen 35 cases of homosexuality and 50 cases of cross-dressers as well as cases of ‘sexual perversion’ in Saudi Arabia.

“The judiciary reportedly also claimed there has been a large rise in ‘perverts’ displaying ‘sins and obscenities’ on social media in the Sunni Kingdom.

“It comes after a Saudi man was arrested this week when he raised the rainbow flag outside his home in Jeddah.”

*****

“Currently, the Saudi government hands out fines, prison sentences and whipping for being openly gay.

A second conviction automatically merits automatic executions although vigilante executions are also common.”

Apple has a pro-Saudi Arabia promotional site: “Apple (Saudi Arabia).”

It’s not like the news about Saudi Arabia’s anti-homosexual laws are new to Cook and other companies. The vast majority of Muslim nations are anti-homosexual. Apple and Coke made their business deals knowing this.

Here’s a chart of some other countries that do business with Saudi Arabia and many of which called for boycotts of states that wanted to protect citizens from unjust prosecution but have said nothing about the anti-homosexual views and practices in Saudi Arabia:
