RUSH: As we get ready to celebrate the start of the Christmas season, we have just been treated to a highly spiritual sermon.
On Monday night, the sermon-giver spoke of getting rid of hate, division, and violence. In other words, bringing peace on earth.
He focused on “the right thing to do.” He preached about the importance of being clear on moral questions. He advocated basing decisions on “values.”
He closed with these inspiring words: “I believe the most sacred thing that each of us is given is our judgment, our morality, our own innate desire to separate right from wrong. Choosing to set that responsibility aside at a moment of trial is a sin.”
The preacher? Tim Cook, Apple CEO. He was receiving the Anti-Defamation League’s “Courage Against Hate” award, the very first one they’ve ever awarded.
He was not talking about the Golden Rule, or the spirit of the season. He was talking about the sacred duty to kick certain people off tech platforms. Divisive people. Not kicking them off is a “sin.”
This new religion of Mr. Cook’s is a real ho-ho-ho. It’s merry shut up, if we don’t approve.
