    I'll flat out say I haven't seen data on the voting histories of the company employees one way or another, so please enlighten us how you come to that conclusion.
    The majority of Californians voted in favor of Proposition 8. It stands to reason that unless one can demonstrate a solid reason to suppose otherwise, that any random subset of Californian voters (such as Mozilla employees) is likely to have voted about the same way that the whole of California voted.

    Sorry but companies are NOT distributed in that way. In others words, just admit you pulled it out of your ass and be honest. How hackish of you. No wonder some conservatives are called CONS.

    If you look at the exit polls people who made between 30k and 150k were more likely to vote yes than no on prop 8

    If you're going to claim that the ratio of supporters vs. opponents of Proposition 8 among Mozilla employees is significantly different than that among Californians in general, then yours is the side that has some proving to do. Lacking any such evidence, my assumption is the most likely to be correct.

    Prove the mozilla workers are more likely to have voted prop 8. You need to read what I said. Typical CON mentality.

    Yet again, assuming an ENTIRE company votes that way is insane. That is an extremely large margin and to prove everyone in that category working for mozilla is assuming quite a bit. Know what they say about assuming right?

    Because the tech industry has generally long been supporters of gay rights, and the more highly educated tend to support gay rights more, not to mention mozilla is a silicon valley tech company, and san fransisco is an area long known for supporting gay rights. My guess is that most of them voted no on prop 8
    Haha. Panty Hawk. I would watch that show.

    How Rare Are Anti-Gay-Marriage Donations in Silicon Valley? | FiveThirtyEight

    Proposition 8 passed with 52 percent of the vote in 2008, although it was opposed by 56 percent of voters in Santa Clara County and 62 percent of voters in San Mateo County, which are the two most associated with Silicon Valley.
    Support for Prop 8 in San Francisco county, where Mozilla is headquartered, was ~25%.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I proved the demographics favor that more of them voted yes on prop 8 than no. You have to prove that the demographics don't represent Mozilla.

    You assumed those demographics applied to Mozilla a tech company. Thats for YOU to prove. It doesn't work for EVERY company and you know it.
