Don't be naive. This is warfare of a different sort, but warfare nonetheless.
    Yeah sure.

    3.)Which makes me dislike THEIR use of free speech.
    4.)Yet I WON'T be demanding they leave their job.

    5.)I don't like how it's working. We're too picky about what someone says and not enough about what they do. We care about what people think but not about their actions.
    ****in' BS is what we are.

    6.)Oh I probably am. I usually do, with me it's either no thinking at all or overthinking. No middle-ground.
    7.)(Not you, MG).
    1.) I agree 100%
    2.) while im sure there are some in general how are they not respecting his right to free speech? they responded with thier own and this is more about his actions not just speech
    3.) why dont you like people voicing thier opinions on his bigoted views.
    4.) while you have the right, i think your demands would be much harder for people to buy into.

    5.) but this was about what he did more so than what he said. The grip is over hid donation not his feelings.
    6.) im guilty of this too at times
    7.) thats funny

    To those on the wrong, holding and expressing an opinion or belief which they find disagreeable is plenty of reason for someone to lose his job, or otherwise suffer whatever adverse consequences the wrong can inflict.

    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.

    1.) well i think that is an issue "nicer"

    lets flash forward 50 years

    gays now have equal rights and this guy just "says" he thinks marriage is a religious thing but he doesnt try to stop people from having them

    i think nothign really big happens

    but in a reality where people are being denied rights and this person tried to help that its no surprise with the first display of not nice (trying to deny rights) was returned.

    2.) i see that lol
    do i need E-Z pass to get on that highway

    opening a can of worms like this is a bad idea. the problem is other people haven't realized the danger of it yet.
    The pendulum is going to swing the other way. Antics such as what is being done to Mr. Eich, what they tried to do to the Duck Dynasty guy and to Chick-fil-A, and countless other such incidents, can only guarantee that decent people will run out of patience and tolerance for the minority of immoral freaks and their unending demands that we turn everything upside down just to cater to them.

    I would hope that most of those with me on the right will hold to a higher ethical standard than those on the wrong have demonstrated; but you have to know that at some point, the perverts and their sycophants will find themselves being targeted using the same tactics that they pioneered against their victims. I hope most of us will be better than that, but it will only take a very small portion of us who are not to easily outnumber and outpower these freaks.

    Really? I don't see them passing laws against gay marriage.

    Allowing gay couples to enter into a marriage contract = "turning everything upside down."
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Donations are a form of speech? Or something. He expressed his opinion through donating, how is that any different from expressing an opinion via talking? One involves money, of course, but so what?

    I care not about that. I care that they expected him to be fired/resign. If he was a liberal CEO who opposed Prop 8 and donated money to campaign against it, and demographics in California and Mozilla customers were reversed, would you support his resignation/firing in the face of outrage because he opposed it?

    If I donate money to something I support, how is that not speaking my mind? Just because I use the medium of money to do so? How does that make sense? Money is a way to get your message heard by more people.
