The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), among other news outlets have been talking about Mr. Cook’s decision to reveal his sexuality.

In the world as we know it, it has become increasingly popular for people to disclose their sexual orientation and while that is totally up to them I just do not see the necessity.

It annoys me that the media has been giving this revelation so much publicity.  Why? My views are very traditional by today’s standards.  I believe that God ordained it that a man should be with a woman.

Mr. Cook says that those within his personal circles and workplace are aware of his sexual preference, so why was it necessary for us to know it?

I have to wonder what his motivations are.  Is it really to help “…someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality…?” Who knows?

In any case, recent disclosures of sexual orientation in  the different spheres of social life only makes me concerned about amount of the power of the gay community may really have.
