    re: Mozilla’s CEO steps down amid gay marriage furor[W:577]

    I'm eagerly awaiting the movies that Hollywood is going to produce about this new Blacklist and how they're going to paint homosexuals as evil totalitarians enforcing their viewpoint on everyone. I suspect I'm going to have to wait until the universe explodes for that to happen.

    I can't wait until I can exercise some firing authority over a liberal or a homosexual I disagree with. I think that I can warm up to this notion that the Left is birthing - firing people for their opinions. You guys sure know how to win friends and influence people. No holds barred. I personally wouldn't have gone with that strategy, but I can learn new tricks and unilateral disarmament is not one of those tricks.

    We can't have anything resembling a real democracy*if people are only allowed to publicly express opinions that their boss has approved.

    Well, corporations are democratic to some degree. I'm sure there was a vote before the Board told Brendan Eich he could leave the easy way or the hard way.

    Yes, we are aware you are desperate to have some authority over anyone. I think its going to be a looooong wait.

    I'm not understanding you. Your comment can be read two ways. 1.) Some of Eich's employees went to twitter to call for him to be fired. 2.) Eich was fired by his board for donating to a legitimate political movement. Which employee and which opinion are your referring to?

    I've hired people whose political opinions I disagree with a lot. As long as you can keep a professional atmosphere and the job is done then usually that's all that matters. You sound like you shouldn't be let within a thousand miles of authority.

    Another fine example of tolerance given by those demanding toleration.. (sarcasm)

    Apparently, they (Mozilla) may not be very strong on "freedom of speech"

    Excerpt:


    [B..........]On Thursday, Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker confirmed Eich’s departure in a blog post on the company’s website.

    .Baker said........“Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it,” she wrote. “We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves.” “Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech,” she said.
    [/COLOR]



    ........
    Eich chose to step down from his role and made the decision “for Mozilla and our community.”


    The departure came a day after Eich insisted he would not leave the company over his support for Proposition 8.

    “I don't want to talk about my personal beliefs because I kept them out of Mozilla all these 15 years we've been going,” he told the Guardian. “I don't believe they're relevant.”

    By these standards shouldn't the Koch Brothers be fired?

    I had hiring and managerial authority when I was in the business world. I didn't care about the personal lives or opinions of the people I hired and managed.

    Right now I'm in a line of work where I don't have hiring authority. What I'm saying is that liberals and homosexuals are teaching me some good lessons. No holds barred. Harm your political enemies. Do whatever it takes to harm people with opinions different than you. I saw it with Chick-fil-A, I saw it with Phil Robertson, and now I see it with Brendan Eich. Show no nuance, show no tolerance, show nothing but brute power. OK, I'm learning.

    Then it sounds like you're not ready to wield authority again, because you don't seem to understand what the story is about. Mozilla clearly wanted to project a type of image about itself, and Eich's public behavior ran contrary to that image. There are cases where the lines between personal behavior vs. institution's desired image can get really blurry. This is not one of them.
