    He's not being fired for a political cause. He's being fired because he failed, as a designated representative, to serve the company.

    Had this man worked for them he would have been kicked to the curve in the same fashion. So you are not really making a statement by going to chrome.

    /uninstalls google chrome, goes back to Safari.

    Dammit.

    Understand my point, I don't have a problem with people being fired for any cause, I believe in free associations and this comes part and parcel with that belief. My problem is with the uneven application of that principle. Someone can be fired for believing in marriage but another person can't be fired for believing in homosexual "marriage."

    I say it's now fair game - start firing everyone who supports the notion of homosexual "marriage."

    My views are that I'm pro SSM. I'm just against the hackery and bigotry/hate that constantly comes from the pro-SSM side directed at those that support traditional marriage though.

    Thanks for the judgement though.

    I'm not so sure, if he had spoken about his beliefs or it became known that he supported traditional marriage I think something similar would have happened. Donating $1000 to an organization from private money that ultimately failed in its goal really isn't a big deal or action, at least in how I look at it. It's not really something that was well known, someone had to have done some digging years back to pull that out and make it public.

    How do you think gays were treated compared to blacks and women? They can vote, don't have to move from the buss, can live together and have no crimes against their lifestyle... The comparisons and straw mans back to Civil Rights era and women's suffrage stuff needs to stop, the issues aren't comparable and the arguments/defenses are also different. It's just a cheap vilification tactic to paint opposition as evil people in an attempt to also justify the hate and discrimination against them.

    You don't know what you're talking about. He didn't fail to do his job. His only objectionable offense is donating to a political cause from his personal money on his free time.

    Look, I'm not arguing this with you. If you happen to own a company and you try to fire someone for something like this, they can sue you and they will win. Fair warning.

    By the way, that's why this man was not fired. He was bribed to resign on his own free will, thus avoiding lawsuits.

    Yes, he did. He embarrassed the company. A CEO is a representative and not just a worker.

    Well, actually, you do understand that Eich stepped down and wasn't fired, right?
