Mozilla's Anti-Gay-Marriage CEO Is Out
Business Insider ^ | 04/03/2014 | Jay Yarow

Posted on 04/03/2014 1:32:37 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Mozilla's CEO Brendan Eich is out. Eich is resigning as CEO and leaving the board of Mozilla, the open-source computing company that makes the Firefox browser.

He had been under fire for supporting anti-gay marriage legislation in California in 2008.

Some Mozilla employees had been calling for his resignation on Twitter for the past week.

Dating site OkCupid changed its home page so that if someone using Firefox came to it, it would tell them about Eich and suggest they switch browsers.

We NEED another civil war.

Some matters can only be settled by just fighting out and being done with it.

I’d bet money on our side, as the others wouldn’t want to get all dirty, break fingernails, and would likely pass out at the sight of slinging blood. Or we could just cut off the FSA cards and let them eat each other.

Great, the CEO of the best web browser is forced to leave because people are intolerant of his beliefs. Is there ANY argument that liberals are not most closed minded people alive?

Unreal, this is something that the majority of California voted for and supported just 6 years ago.

Brendan Eich creator of the JavaScript scripting language, are gay marriage proponents going to boycott the scripting language used on most websites as well?

You're right. They will never stop until they are forcibly stopped.

Why should they stop? The way things are set up now they win everything, even in spite of their vastly inferior numbers.

I guess all the liberals will stop writing in Javascript. Brendan Eich created Javascript in May of 1995.

Eich’s problem is he backed off and apologized for his beliefs.

He was probably gonna be let go in the first place - so his walking back his remarks were totally useless.

This is a microchasm of why the Left is winning.....

When the Left is attacked, they dig in and hunker down...no matter the size of the battle.

When the Right is attacked, they tuck tail and run...

It's far past time to stand and fight...

... and the Left is just a bunch of bullies ... bullying people who don't agree with them while shouting from the rafters how much they hate bullies and how much they love tolerance.

They're bullies -- plain and simple -- and how the Left hates it when you call them bullies!

Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness. We welcome contributions from everyone regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views. Mozilla supports equality for all.

... UNLESS your religious views do not agree with the pro-sodomy movement!

The left and the homosexuals never promised to be tolerant, that was just what they demanded of their opponents. Like Islam and the dhimmi.

People need to talk seriously about this. The country is going to break apart anyhow. The question is only on what terms it will be divided.

More fallout from the IRS Scandal and an activist liberal judiciary. It was probably someone from the IRS who illegally disclosed contributors to the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) to the pro-gay Human Rights Campaign (HRC) in 2012. This followed a series of California court decisions to allow free publication of names of people who signed the original initiative to setup the vote for traditional marriage only in California.

Mr Eich's "original sin" was to personally donate money to NOM in favor of that marriage initiative back in 2008. The kind and tolerant Gay Mafia did the rest!

We need to start destroying them like they strive to destroy us.

Thankfully our Founders created the First Amendment, making what they do to opponents illegal on its face. Wonder if they’ve ever heard of the concept of reprisal?

I suggest doing the same thing about the intolerant pro-homo zealots who pull this crap. Just do their own game against them. They will just not be able to take their own medicine.

I'm not sure I follow the "illegal" part. The First Amendment limits what the Government can do, not private parties. Private parties can criticize and boycott whoever they want.

Wonder if they’ve ever heard of the concept of reprisal?

...and you have the right to criticize and boycott right back at them.

... then, when the "tolerance" they achieved from the other 97 percent of Americans wasn't enough, the homosexual bullies demanded "acceptance" -- that is, "normality" -- in society.

Now that they've achieved acceptance, it's still not enough. Now the bullies are demanding -- not asking for, but demanding -- that the 97 percent celebrate their homosexual behavior. What's left?

At least someone out there understands what the mark of the beast is beyond the conspiratorial ideas of imbedded chips and barcodes.

If you do not think and act in accordance with the Beast - you will not be allowed to make a living, shop, eat or drink.

In short - you will be denied what it takes to live if you do not seig-heil the Beast.

This one tentacle is a pink swastika - but do not be fooled, the entire Left is a giant blood-sucking swastika and it will be as eager to send you to death camps as their Socialist Workers Patty predecessors were the Jews.
