To get back to what the article, and the thread was SUPPOSED to be about, there is this. http://pxlnv.com/blog/tech-company-diversity-stats/ Some of you might have seen the link to that in today's Daring Fireball. So, actually, when compared to other tech companies, though this is limited to software companies, so not entirely comparable, Apple comes out pretty well.
It's just that Christians try hard to conceal the meaning of the holiday so as to have everyone celebrate it. They've always done that. It shouldn't be called by the rather neutral sounding name of Christmas, but rather do it boldly, and call it what it is; Christ's Mass.

You can go ahead and post anything you want to. But please don't try to denigrate scientific work like that. There have been many studies done over the years, and they all come up with similar answers. When I was studying psychology I read a number of them ,and they looked pretty good to me. I also did some work with the Council on Social Work Education early on, and some of what you find out is eye opening.One thing that has always fascinated me is that people who are in...
You obviously have difficulty in understanding what I wrote. Perhaps you should read it again, more slowly.
