Apple CEO: Being gay ‘Is God’s greatest gift to me’

Apple CEO, Tim Cook, said in a CNN interview this week that being gay “is God’s greatest gift to me.”

While mainstream and gay media are greeting Cook’s statement as breaking news, the Apple CEO made precisely the same declaration exactly four years ago when he penned a  ‘coming out’ article for Bloomberg Technology on October 30, 2014, saying:

So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.

Steering away from controversy, Cook avoided answering interviewer Christiane Amanpour’s question about the level of tolerance for gay people in his Silicon Valley-based industry. Amanpour said that Cook was “quite brave,” to come out as a CEO “especially in Silicon Valley,” indicating that the environment in the tech capital dominated by progressivism is perhaps toxic for gays.
