    There is a reason why even Andrew Sullivan thinks this was wrong.
    They called a boycott against a man that gave money to outlaw marriage for them. That is what happened. Both these people have rights to speak out.

    And now here is a growing boycott against Mozilla and many Gays are being embarrassed by this harassment of Eich.. Is there a winner in any of this?

    Everything is controversial. Well, nearly everything.

    I would suggest that political views are not a valid reason to either hire or fire a person. On the other hand, arguments could be made for firing a person if their presence is disruptive enough.

    Probably just Eich, who with any luck walked away from a pathetic company with a big fat severance check.

    Wrong. The guy gave money to continue to define marriage as between a man and a woman, not "outlaw" anyone's marriages, or outlaw it as a ceremony for anyone.

    Andrew Sullivan and I don't agree on much. But it seems we do agree that targeting individuals for purposes of the political intimidation of others is a tactic outside the pale for civil "tolerant" society.

    No justification. Just pointing out the the hype when people are acting like this guy is some kind of Martyr. This stuff happens to ordinary people all the time and without all this hype. It obvious this is being used for political purposes.

    Well I guess the people who did not want to work under Eich as CEO won. It certainly didn't change anything else about this issue.

    I believe you're right. Getting to the top of a multi billion dollar corporation like that suggests he is no fool. Mozilla will lose all the way around.

    His successor better be sure that any past donations somehow remain hidden from Leftists. Most other people wouldn't care where any donations may have gone..
