    Google Chrome on my husband's computer, and IE on mine.

    And it felt good moving away from Firefox.

People will continue to get fired for voicing or supporting a cause that may be very controversial.
    Supporting marriage is not controversial. Since most people are employed at will, they can get fired at anytime. I'm not quite sure what you are proposing. Forcing employers to keep people that they don't want?

    Then perhaps we should allow people to have their beliefs and not support the mobs who chase them down for opposing their points of view.

    Be sure to bathe yourself in that last sentence so you completely absorb it.
    It's not more than polarizing IT IS POLARIZING. I think it's repugnant to take a topic which many people can come together and discuss that there is some issues to be discussed and instead of trying to find common ground, they polarize the issue. The facts are that ANYBODY can get fired for saying anything about politics in or outside work. This is a problem for EVERYONE. This is not an us vs. them issue or a gay rights groups are evil issue. Until people want to put down their partisan swords nothing will change. Just same sh*t different day.

    If it's ok to fire someone for being anti-gay marriage it's ok to fire someone for being pro-gay marriage.
    It's ok to not make a wedding cake for a gay wedding because you're anti-gay marriage.
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    Then where does it stop? Why not start protecting people's private held opinions starting with this guy? Instead you point to other cases in the past which, it seems to me, you use to justify your position here.

    Okay, so let me see if I'm understanding what you are saying...everytime someone gets fired for speaking their opinion at work is on the back end of fascism?

    The Politicization of Every Single Damn Thing is indeed an unfortunate (ongoing) development.

    There is a reason why even Andrew Sullivan thinks this was wrong.

    The Hounding Of A Heretic

    The guy who had the gall to express his First Amendment rights and favor Prop 8 in California by donating $1,000 has just been scalped by some gay activists. After an OKCupid decision to boycott Mozilla, the recently appointed Brendan Eich just resigned under pressure...

    Will he now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not the stocks? The whole episode disgusts me – as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society. If this is the gay rights movement today – hounding our opponents with a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else – then count me out. If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than the anti-gay bullies who came before us.
