Hypocrisy of Corporate America: PayPal, Apple, Coca-Cola Reject N.C. ‘Bathroom’ Law But Do Business Where Gay Sex and Cross-Dressing Are Illegal

American corporations are quick to condemn North Carolina for looking out for the safety of children and women who would be at risk by sexual predators taking advantage of a transgender bathroom law.
  It’s suffice to say corporations seek to be pro LBGT to keep the activists with pitchforks away from their headquarters. 

CNS News reports although many large businesses, including PayPal, Apple, Microsoft, and Coca-Cola, have criticized North Carolina’s new locker room and bathroom law as “discriminatory” to LGBT people, those same four corporations do business in Middle Eastern countries where homosexual conduct and cross-dressing are illegal.

In Saudi Arabia, for instance, homosexual conduct is “punishable by death or flogging,” according to the U.S. State Department.  In Kuwait, practicing homosexuals can face prison terms up to 10 years; cross-dressers can go to prison for up to three years.

Despite the anti-gay laws in those two countries, neither PayPal, Apple, Microsoft, nor Coca-Cola would tell if they opposed those laws; whether they would publicly ask that those laws be repealed; whether it is hypocritical for them to oppose the North Carolina law while doing business in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait; and why, since they are committed to LGBT rights, they conduct business in countries where homosexual acts and cross-dressing are illegal.
