    Except as a pro equal rights company they won't be hiring known homophobes or racists and other filth to represent them. So you should probably uninstall IE as well for their discrimination.

    looks like you can't use android, iphones, or windows phones either

    you certainly can't use linux, apple, or windows computers.

    so, why are you still on the internet?

    I find it strange that people think 'doing the same thing, they don't like' is a point well made?

    I don't like Chrome or Google because they're invasive and IE is a security hazard. I'd probably use Firefox if the makers were Nazi's. It's simply a better and more - user friendly software.

    I wasn't referring to democracy within a company, I'm referring to the general political impact of people facing a risk of getting fired for expressing their political opinions outside of work.

    As I said, I think it is OK to limit a CEO's public expression of opinion because CEOs do represent the company to investors, clients and the public. For lower level employees there should be a right to freely express opinions or live any lifestyle outside of work. I would like to laws protecting that right. Such a law would also protect companies form being held responsible for the opinions of their employees since they would not be allowed to control the employee's activities outside of work.

    You make a public statement like words or a donation against SSM and you should expect to be fired eventually (or have to fall on your sword like this schmuck). It sucks that it works this way, but you cannot claim ignorance these days.

    This is why political donations should be private information.

    He was the CEO of a major company. When you are a CEO, everything you do reflects back onto the company. You are the face of your company. This is why CEOs really shouldn't be vocal about any political issue. I highly doubt this would be any different if he came out in support of some other controversial issue like gun control. Would there still be whining from the traditionalists if he were fired for supporting gun legislation, instead of anti-gay legislation? Probably not. But such is the nature of partisan politics...

    Boy people really can't read can they? I already stated that I don't care if another browser support gay marriage. What I despise is corporations firing or inviting to leave employees who donate to political ideology. As River has been saying all through this thread that this is a dangerous precedent for ANY corporation to follow. People will and often do vote with their pocket books, and as many people who support gay marriage there are as many if not more that support traditional marriage and find absolutely nothing wrong with anyone donating to a cause that is trying to preserve that philosophy.

    The bigots here are the Mozilla firefox clowns. Facebook, Twitter and any other social media can flare up quickly, and Mozilla and any other corporation doesn't want that, and would be wise to just stay out of the whole taking a stand routine. This man didn't do anything wrong, and he should not be pressured to step down for doing it.
