    I would imagine that since the guy has been with mozilla since the netscape days, he probably wanted to protect his baby too and might have been willing to go.

    Mozilla obviously did a terrible job of vetting their candidate and having their finger on the pulse of the employee base and its social attitudes.

    I dont think thats part of a company's job to do and honestly if it werent a ceo of a high profile company, nobody would care. However as mozilla came from open source and its inherent liberal ethic, mozilla's brand has that value (or baggage depending on how you look at it). If this guy had been the ceo of the local car wash conglomerate down town, nobody would probably care.

    I absolutely think that's part of a company's job. As said earlier in the thread, a CEO is a representative of the company. Mozilla's origins only amplify that.

    His actions, in 2008, was to be of the same opinion on the undesirability of same sex marriage as the man who would be elected president that year. That is it.

    I think the outrage here is based upon the complete intolerance of those who favor same sex marriage of toward those who have a contrary view.

    You've just been going berserk railing against equity (fairness and impartiality) in education. How come when it's your favourites on the receiving end you're suddenly all in favour of fairness?

    I scent a whiff of hypocrisy.

    Here's the very thread...

    "Austerity is used as a cover to reconfigure society and increase inequality and injustice." - Jeremy Corbyn

    He shouldn't have stepped down. He and Obama shared the same opinion on Gay marriage until Obama "evolved" on the issue. ( he didn't change his mind on anything )

    People need to grow a friken spine in this Country

    Wrong people shouldn't be fired or hired based on personal political belief.

    the problem is the left does what it always does which is slander and demean anyone that doesn't think like them. it truely is disgusting in a society that is suppose to pride itself on free speech and freedom of thought and idea's.

    the left is not a very tolerant group of people as they claim to be nor are they very accepting as they claim to be either.

    Anyone who generalizes about "the left" as if it is a hivemind has no clue what they're talking about.

    not really because i know people that are on the left and they are not like these loud mouths out there that scream for people to be let go of and shut down businesses.
    while we might disagree on certain things we have a mutual respect for each others opinions.

    these people are extremists that are attempting to thought police the nation. the problem is that the problem, but instead of standing up against them the liberal democrats embrace them.
