    true, but this does not mean he wins, he makes less money in the long run than he otherwise would have.

    Perhaps as a CTO or CIO somewhere as he has an engineering background, this may happen, so perhaps your right that he wasn't harmed here, but I am not sure I would still call it a win. His passion was obviously the world wide web as he was one of the main people responsible for java script and a number of innovations. He was probably doing his passion.

    Actually, I do. 30 years of experience in Fortune 500 and Fortune 50 companies training managers in labor law and working in compliance programs.

    He went with Opera. Gay marriage is legal in Norway (Opera is a Norwegian company), so no pro same sex marriage political activity could be dug up, though that's probably for the same reason that Microsoft doesn't donate money to causes pushing for Women's right to vote.

    You don't know the law very well do you?

    When you are at that level in a very public company, there are standards, by his actions, he reflected poorly on the company and caused injury to the company. It is different when you are a CEO versus an Accountant.

    Yes, as long as you are not firing someone because of race, sex, religion, national origin or ethnicity, and in some states, sexual preference.

    It's now time to remove these protections. It's obscene that people can be fired for supporting marriage and not for the above. Let's have a free-fire zone - everyone can be fired for any damn reason.

    No, it isn't.

    Because hiring and firing decisions are made by people, and people have biases and people make mistakes.

    And people like you might actually be given the responsibility to make important decisions.

    Don't like it? Move to another country, we don't need theocrats and dictators like you in this country.

    even all those arent protected if theres a contract. FOr example religion. There have been cases of teachers or admin losing thier jobs at religious schools because they participated in a marriage that was fine with thier person religion but not the schools conduct clause.

    But again a person knows this going in, its not a surprise and this is only for contracts.
