    yep

    SOME people simply dont care about rights and freedoms that exist in this country. They dont care about their fellow americans one bit. Its pure hypocrisy as an american.
    SOME people want less government and talk about rights and constitution BUT that stuff only matters for what THEY want lol. Its only matters for THEIR rights, in their views the hell with everyone else.

    But luckily equality is winning and bigotry and discrimination is losing and its awesome. Its hilarious to see the fear and angry equal rights inspires in some and how many lies they will try to sell to. Nobody honest, educated and objective buys their false claims.

    its always funny to see somebody claim they are being forced when equal rights forces nothing on them it just allows others to have the same rights they do and their way would be to DENY others rights.

    Well they dont have long to try these desperate, hateful, last minute, hell marys because its the 4th water and gay rights will be national soon

    but until then the hyperbolic, mentally inane, BS crying about rouge judges, force, tradition, sanctity, morals, bestiality, pedophilia, saying its just the left/liberals that support equal rights, history of marriage, dangers of the icky gays etc etc and all the other failed and proven wrong fallacies will continue to entertain educated and honest righties, lefties and independents alike Its comic gold!

    The argument is this:

    Mozilla certainly had the right to request his resignation, because, as has been pointed out repeatedly, it would be impossible for him to be effective in his job, in light of the campaign against him. There is no claim that his rights were violated, or that new laws need to be made.

    Its the nature of the campaign that was objectionable. There were no claims that his job performance was tainted by his opposition to same sex marriage. No claims that, in 2008 as he was writing out his $1000 check, or that in any year, he was purging gays on the job, or creating a hostile workplace. He was not advocating his opposition on the job, or indeed to co-workers off job time. Nobody seemed to know of his opposition. He was a man who showed up to work everyday and did his job well, and who in the judgement of the Board of directors, was quite suitable for the job of CEO.

    He had a personal opinion at odds with many employees of Mozilla. And they would not tolerate it.
    And their lack of tolerance is the problem.
    It needs to not be forgotten that the cause which Mr. Eich supported is the cause which won the election, as a similar one did some years before. The vast majority of Californians agree with Mr. Eich's position on the issue of protecting marriage from those who wish to redefine and corrupt it.

    This probably includes the majority of employees at Mozilla.

    What would happen to Mozilla, or to any other large company, if it were to learn what position each of its employees took on the issue of protecting marriage, and were to fire every employee who did not vote in favor of forcing a sick mockery of marriage to be accepted and treated as equal to genuine marriage? Any employer that did this would end up losing most of its workers; and it would be the more morally-sound majority that it would lose; leaving behind the minority who can be solidly expected to be the least moral and least ethical among the original workforce.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Wrong, it took away the right of a man and woman to marry.

    They simply defined marriage as only between a man and woman of the same RACE.
    But see, that was racial. Race doesn't have anything to do with marriage. Gender does. Without a man and a woman, it is not a marriage. Glad that is now cleared up.

    Whatever happens between consenting adults shouldn't be our business but I do notice that, in general, Leftists make more of sexual issues than does anyone else.

    All an employee need do is ask a gay person, or any person, how they feel about marriage and fire them no matter how they respond. This seems to be the precedent set here.

    No, i certainly don't want any government ging to far into our moral behavior, apart from the aws already in place..

    The problem with getting rid of people at one time, as in the case of Eich, might backfire when moralities change yet again and other people with different points of view gain power. Is it more immoral for firing someone for a political donation or for the act of making a political donation. Perhaps this is a question we should be asking ourselves.

    Ho hum. Another example of a liberal not geting it. There's no connection.

    Society is all over the place as far as morals go. There are no defining public morals anymore.
