    From the reactions it would almost seem like he raped or murdered someone.

    Nope, he just donated money to a group that supported Prop 8. The fact that his company (from what I've read) gave benefits to LGBTQ couples in their company and pushed to not have discriminatory practices is irrelevant.

    The anti-SSM bullying should stop, but I doubt it will happen. But then again, companies and society shouldn't be catering to the brainless bigots that would want to punish, fire or harm those that disagree with their views on marriage.

    If an employee in my company hurts the company, I have every right to fire them. CEOs are hired not only as managers but as representatives.

    "seems" he did things that supported the fight against equal rights for gays and maybe even bigoted things, but they are legal and thats his right
    seems employees found out about it and voiced their disapproval
    seems customers found out about and voiced their disapproval
    then it seems he stepped down

    now i havent looked up many articles on this YET but so far i see ZERO issue with this, why should I?

There are cases where the lines between personal behavior vs. institution's desired image can get really blurry. This is not one of them.
    Maybe you're right. Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, is homosexual. If his being homosexual gets in the way of Apple's image then I'm sure that you'd be OK with them firing him. Same with a woman CEO.

    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.

    Really, how is this any different than firing or harassing someone over their views on homosexuality or if they've had homosexual sex? It's not much different, at the root he was fired/harassed over his personal views and lifestyle choice with his own money.

    Not all personal views are equal.

    He "stepped down" amid "controversy" over his personal beliefs. I think it's obvious as to why. Websites like OKCupid were attacking Mozilla and it hit the news with attacks on the company over the new CEO's beliefs.

    People have a right to boycott and free speech. But if people are going to go to the point that they will literally hate and wish to harm businesses/workers over their personal beliefs then they may want to reevaluate themselves. That's like demanding a business or CEO step down because they are a homosexual or have supported SSM.

    If you're wanting a browser with a company that supports social conservatism or traditional marriage Google probably also isn't for you. They've publicly advocated for pro-gay issues and SSM stuff.

    Not all of them are subjects of political hot topics either. We have actors and CEO's who cheat on spouses all the time and engage in all kinds of corruption. Heck, some others may even be contributing to human rights violations in countries used for cheap labor. I think it's silly that a guy donating $1000 to a pro-prop 8 groups gets this kind of outcry while others don't.
