    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.
    Wrong in one very important detail(and a couple small ones I will let slide): the controversy was not over his beliefs, but over his actions. This is a large, unsubtle, important distinction.

    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.
    Well, a couple points here. First, if I were going to work for a company whose image was very conservative and intolerant, I'd be verrrrrry careful not to air my politics. Second, how would you go about uncovering the politics of an employee?

    Out of the frying pan into the fire? Google is even more vehemently pro equal rights than any other browser and have done far worse to bigots than this.

    The action of donating $1000 to a pro-prob 8 group? Mozilla as a company, from what I read, if pretty LGBTQ friendly.

    You know he could probably sue Mozilla for that. Donating to a political cause is not a fireable offense.
