    My views are that I'm pro SSM. I'm just against the hackery and bigotry/hate that constantly comes from the pro-SSM side directed at those that support traditional marriage though.

    Thanks for the judgement though.
    how can you be "pro-SSM" but would have ZERO problem if SSM didnt exist?

    Petco is about animal care, but let their CEO be quoted saying "I hate Negroes" and all of sudden they are synonymous with racism.
    It's funny how things go. Women, liberals, blacks, homosexuals were adamant that it was wrong to fire people, even if the public didn't like who represented the company - that the people should be judged on how well they perform their job, not by how the public felt about them. As soon as homosexuals don't like someone though all of that "principle" gets thrown out the window.

    I can guarantee you that I'm not the only one who is learning the new rules of the game.

There are no hard and fast rules here and these decisions are contextual and it is legitimate that different criteria be applied to different job functions.
    Yes, however Mozilla should have done their diligence BEFORE they hired him. It's not a fireable offense to donate to a mainstream political cause on your own dime on your own time, especially since it happened prior to him taking the job.

    I can't wait until I can exercise some firing authority over a liberal or a homosexual I disagree with. I think that I can warm up to this notion that the Left is birthing - firing people for their opinions. You guys sure know how to win friends and influence people. No holds barred. I personally wouldn't have gone with that strategy, but I can learn new tricks and unilateral disarmament is not one of those tricks.
    So much hate, so much hyperbole, the world changed, sorry you were too wrapped up in irrational hate to get the memo.

    Don't hate people because of the way they were born, not a difficult concept.

    BTW, watch this AMAZING response by Honey Maid after so many people like you responded with hate to their ad which portrayed gay parents.

    This is how you answer the haters.

    They're all exactly the same. Hence why I have no problem switching. As it happens, I already had it installed on my Mac anyway.

    It's not their place.

    It's improper for a corporation to be politically active. Just focus on your damn product and stay out of the political arena.
    I'm pretty sure that it's a safe bet to make that most of those who are supporting Mozilla are simultaneously opposed to Hobby Lobby, not in the matter of what each company believes, but in the fact that Mozilla has a right to a belief and that Hobby Lobby doesn't.

    Mozilla saw the potential fiasco and loss of revenue and consumer support and acted.

    Isn't that how the free market works?
    Fair enough, so when can we start firing people for being homosexual or being a woman or being handicapped or being black?

    And without knowing a single thing about that case, I'll bet dollars to donuts that there's something at the heart of the Hobbly Lobby issue that you don't understand.

    There are no new rules. Had he said " Christians should not be allowed in office or teach our children." (which is a real opinion that some people hold) the same thing would have happened. I'll bet you every cent in my bank account that man would have been out on his ass. It has everything to do with offending the public. You just don't agree with this particular portion of the public that was offended so you are taking the side of - "Oh well it's his opinions, gosh you guys, can't a man have an opinion no matter how ugly and not suffer the consequences?"

    The answer is no and it always will be.
