    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.

    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.
    Not all opinions deserve respect.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I'm fine with one standard being applied across the board.

    But here's some more history about liberal/homosexual totalitarianism:

    Scott Eckern, the Sacramento theater director whose political donation in support of California's Prop. 8 ban on same-sex marriage has become a lightning rod in the debate over gay rights, resigned today.

    Frontiers magazine is reporting that Marjorie "Margie" Christoffersen has stepped down as manager of El Coyote restaurant and resigning as a board member over all the Prop 8 hooplah. The controversy started when the LGBT community found out Christoffersen donated $100 to the Yes on Prop 8 campaign

    The whole point of open-records laws is to bring transparency to politics, to insure that corruption is not taking place. Instead we see liberals/homosexuals launching vendettas. OK, if that's the new game, then I say employers should have complete freedom to fire homosexuals and liberals just for voting Democrat.
    Do you equally call other types of anti-bigotry "totalitarianism"? You being all so 'equal' and stuff... I mean, if a CEO were going around donating to campaigns to deny black people the right to marry, would a company be 'bullying' them by getting rid of them?
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    yes, branding has social power, thats already been pointed out and is largely the basis for these types of decisions. imagine if one of the top people who works for chick fil a was found by journalists to be donating money to planned parenthood or something.

    I don't say that, because it makes no sense. It's stupid. At least "the proof is in the putting" makes some modicum of sense, the proof is in how you PUT things in to action. Much better.

    Proof in the pudding is a dumb saying, and I refuse to conform to stupidity. Just because Americans screwed up a saying that at one time made sense doesn't mean I'm obliged to do the same.

    Plus, pudding makes you fat.

    He as a representative of the company was bringing the company's name down, With sites like OKcupid urging the boycott of the browser, isn't that considered material damage to the company and the brand?

    Legally speaking isn't that enough grounds to fire a him?

    Another just interesting little notion that popped in my head over this....

    So we're saying that the private actions of an executive made public are reasonable targets for scorn, condemnation, and calls for removal from his professional office?

    Thanks for the judgement though.
    I'm not judging you. Defensive much?

    I'm saying that anybody who picks a web browser based on "the browser's" political views is pretty silly. How does the code know what its opinions are?
