    3.) I see that you are perfectly fine with LGBT exercising their rights and free speech, but don't really give a dam about Eich's, and support his punishment by an angry LGBT mob.
    1.) how was he "punished"?
    2.) again nobody was punished everybody's rights remain in tact
    3.) another posted lie lol
    i support his right 100% and he still has that right and it was never taken away

    do you have any facts that support this lie

    facts win and your post fails again

    so what yous solution?

    Interesting, because before you said it was a violation of free speech.

    That's how I see the Eich case. Free speech does not inhibit reactions from society. I don't understand why people don't get this. Speech is still free even if its used in ways someone doesn't like and for ends someone doesn't like so long as it follows first amendment rules which have been laid out. In this case, it happened that way.

    Nobody is claiming that Eich's rights were violated.
    What is being claimed is that this is not an exercise of free speech ie. the supporters of gay marriage in this company were not allowing Eich to have a dissenting opinion-- he MUST support gay marriage else he is out the door,

    4.) Seems to me the pot is calling the kettle black.
    1.) its fully 100% in tact
    2.) nope did you miss the fact its 1100% in tact
    3.) another posted lie i never lebeld him a bigot because of that. But the DEFINITION of bigot makes him one as soon as he donated and tried to deny others rights
    4.) seems to me your post failed again, facts won again and the lies you posted were proven wrong again

    free speech for all not just those YOU choose

    It is, but many violations of free speech are not illegal.

    Which parts of Eich's speech do you disagree with?

    I fail to see how this makes anything aspect of this situation any better, nor excuse anything either. Just because . . . . You gonna jump off a cliff too? As the old mother's saying goes.

    Jack Hays made that very claim!

    Eich and Mozilla could have stood firm if they wanted to. They were not prevented by anone from making difference choices in light of this controversy than were made and possibly they would have become the darling of the right like Chick Fil A or that duck guy did.
