    Apple's actions are deplorable. If Apple products are reserved only to those who support the homosexual lifestyle, than they should make that clear in their advertisements. Then those who don't support that lifestyle will not support their products. More and more, we see a compartively small group pressing for the supression of the same right to "free speech" (that they themselves take advantage of) a far greater majority We have to speak up on this and other anti-Christan endeavors being imposed on us--that are turning our country upside-down-and that will bring about our dissolution as a nation if we don't get back to our founding basics, as expressed in "those" documents--and the Ten Commandments engraved in stone, etc., all over our nation's capital buildings and courthouses across our country. Yes, there is a big "push" by a comparatively "few" to remove these engravings, as well as silence free speech regarding the same, but the vast majority of us are waking up to this sabotage of the immortal values we hold dear as a nation "under God!".
