On Thursday, CEO Brendan Eich of Mozilla was forced out of his job thanks to his $1,000 donation to the Proposition 8 pro-traditional marriage effort in California in 2008. At that point, he held the exact same position as Barack Obama on traditional marriage.

Mozillas cave-in to the militants over at OKCupid, a dating site that labeled Eich one of its enemies thanks to his position, represents just the latest assault on conservatives in the online space.
