CNBCs' segment "Squawk on the Street" got a little too squawky today when things took a turn for the awkward and mortifying when one of the show's co-hosts accidentally let it slip that Apple CEO Tim Cook, who is not entirely comfortable being open about his sexuality at the moment and preferred to keep it his own business, is gay.

Shouldn't a deal at all, big or otherwise. Out Magazine named Tim Cook the #2 most "powerful" lesbian, gay, bi, or trans person of the year, after Ellen DeGeneres. Don't know why this person's statement should present a problem at all.

"Mortifying"? Just what's "mortifying" about someone being Gay? Past time for a society attitude adjustment.

It's not like it's something everyone didn't know already.

Funny thing is the way the presenter kept at it. So if they did in fact out him it would have been a good idea to say ok i got him mixed up with someone else and quickly move on.

I agree. In an article I read about him becoming CEO of APPLE immediately following the death of Steve Jobs, that article mentioned he was gay. Big deal. As long as he keeps APPLE profitable and the stock price keeps going up. They had a 7 to 1 split just recently.

Isn't "...around the world." one of those gay sex acts that gays misinterpret as love?

Thank you for sharing what you learned in your "pray away the gay" class today. Maybe you can learn something here, which is that sexual orientation can not be changed. No matter how many times you harass gay people you are NEVER going to become heterosexual.

If biblicists are going to quote Old Law with respect to executing homosexuals, then why don't they quote verses which prescribe the death penalty for a wide variety of acts other than homosexuality?

All of the following warrant execution:

striking your father or mother Ex.21:15
kidnapping Ex. 21:6 RSV
cursing your father or mother Ex. 21:17 RSV, Lev. 20:9
touching a mountain Ex. 19:12 RSV
allowing your ox to gore someone Ex. 21:29
lying with a beast Ex. 22:19 RSV, Lev. 20:15-16
sacrificing to other gods Ex. 22:20 RSV
failing to observe the Sabbath Ex. 31:14-15
drinking strong drinks while in the tabernacle Lev. 10:9
committing adultery Lev. 20:10 RSV, Deut. 22:22
lying with your father's wife Lev. 20:11 RSV
lying with your daughter-in-law Lev. 20:12 RSV
being a medium or a wizard Lev. 20:27 RSV
being a witch Ex. 22:18
being a priest's daughter and becoming a whore Lev. 21:9 RSV
Blaspheming the name of the Lord Lev. 24:16
cursing Lev. 24:14 RSV
coming near the priesthood Num. 3:10
being a stranger who comes near the congregation's tabernacle Num. 3:38
gathering sticks on the Sabbath Num. 15:32-35
serving or worshipping other gods Deut. 17:2-5 RSV
showing contempt for the Lord's priest or judge Deut. 17:12 NIV
failing to obey one's parents Deut. 21:18-21
not being a virgin on your wedding day Deut. 22:20-21 NIV
being a betrothed virgin who did not cry out when seduced Deut. 22:23-24
having relations with your wife and her mother Lev. 20:14
telling people to seek other gods Deut. 13:2,5
being a false prophet Deut. 18:20

Biblicists teach, preach, and attempt to reach others with many OT moralisms, but are not adverse to selectivety using that which suits their interests. If they like an OT verse, they expound it; if they don't, they say that's from the Old Law and we aren't under the Old Law anymore. But aren't the Ten Commandments part of the Old Law? Yes, they say, but we are obligated to follow them because they are reported in the NT (Matt. 19:16-18, Mark 10:17-19, and Luke 18:18-22). People who assert as much should note that Jesus omitted half of the Ten Commanments. But even if they had been present, we would still be under all the Old Law, including the Decalogue, according to Christ ("And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of law to fail"--Luke 16:17, see also Matt. 5:18-19). If "sin is transgression of the law", as 1 John 3:4 says, then Christians should be following all of the Old Law.

I don't dare mention what gay water sports is in reference to.
Maybe we should talk about some of the things that KKKristians enjoy?

"And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat" (Lev. 26:29) and
"I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend...." (Jer. 19:9) and
"I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh, and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with wine" (Isa. 49:26 RSV) and
"Therefore fathers shall eat their sons in the midst of you, and sons shall eat their fathers...." (Ezek. 5:10).

Personally I would rather pee on a gay man than be eaten by KKristians.

2 Kings 18:27 KJV, "...that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?"

I know (about the split). I bought a whole lot of stock in 1987 and 88 when the price was $4 and $7. And I've just held it, buying more every now and again when the price has dipped. Pardon my gloating. But after trying the MacPlus for the first time I saw where this was going. It wasn't really that big a risk.

Now, having a really smart gay guy at the head of the company is just icing on this cake. I have no evidence, but I've always wondered if Sir Jonathan also plays for the home team.

Around the world is actually something female prostitutes created to thrill their straight clients. Our sex is wildly divergent and wholly satisfying thus we have no need to create tricks like this to make sex exciting. That's just for you straights that can't seem to find satisfaction with women.
