    So? All through out history the majority acted in bigotry on various topics. Slavery, marriage(interracial), women - and then as time progressed people changed. It is possible to be a bigot and then not be one. It's matter of choice.

    So now, it's perfectly acceptable to force a CEO to resign from the company he founded because he supported which has only recently become politically unpopular?
    The CEO never stated that he regrets the donation. So as far as any one is concerned he is still convinced the homosexuals should be barred from marriage and thus he is still a bigot.

    Which previously unpopular political positions have you held over the course of your life? Should you be forced to resign your position because you've held those previous positions? Is this the new standard of compliance to political correctness? Are you sure you want to be supporting this? Both now and into the future?
    What do any of these questions have to do with anything? I freely admit to being human. I have acted out of bigotry in life I have suffered the consequences just like everyone else. I currently do not hold any bigoted views. I believe that as long as an individual is not acting to harm himself or others he should be free to live his life as he chooses with having to duck and doge legislation.

    Im glad i could clear up your confusion
    It's not giving up a right. It's the same right under a different name so people don't get all bent out of shape about the word marriage. How hard is that for your to grasp?

    The man hasn't changed his position or made it other wise known that he regrets participating in denying others rights. So why should he no longer be viewed as a bigot. What evidence do we have that he no longer wishes or holds the idea that Homosexuals should not be allowed to marry?

    I don't like opposition to SSM and think it's unfair. I also don't like long sentences for small amounts of MJ possession, but it's still a law. They've got to allow certain opinions to oppose their own beliefs or at least be tolerant if they want the same freedom. That's how they'll get SSM to legal status, not by being over sensitive to any view that's different.

    SSM is most likely inevitable in all states, though it shouldn't start out with such a negative undercurrent.

    Side note: LGBT doesn't have broad base support for SSM. It's why every state that has held a vote on the matter has always voted to ban SSM.

    You freely admit to being human, yet are unprepared to extend the same courtesy to Eich?

    I do know these things. I have participated is many racially charged discussions with riverdad. Riverdad believes there is nothing wrong racially profiling Africans, because they belong to a group that is "tarnished by their own behavior". He believes if white people want to move away from blacks based on the premise that they have heard or seen other black people behave undesirably then that is ok. He also hates diversity, it bothers him that he has to deal with other cultures in his homeland. He is a white nationalist and would prefer that everyone be white.

    I have also discussed with him sexuality and I have read his discussions. The most telling point he has made is that he is more convinced that Homosexuals suffer from a higher rate of depression not because Society is constantly shunning them but that depression is inherent in the homosexual mind without outside influence.

    What evidence do you have that he's a bigot? Can it be the LGBT friendly environment that nurtured and supported as a founder of Mozilla?
