    Now here is an important lie from the left. He's a "bigot" because he supports traditional marriage. No debate or disagreement allowed. No respect for your religion. In that case, anyone that opposes traditional marriage is also a bigot, as they refuse to accept the views of others that are not like their own.

    I have zero desire to speak out against other people's rights. None of my business, but you bet your bottom dollar if I started speaking out against any group of people, I'd lose my job.

    Not all conservatives agree.

    It would be their right; whether it's a smart business decision remains to be seen.

    "All of the Liberals" are attacking Hobby Lobby? That's funny, I'm a liberal and I haven't said a word about Hobby Lobby until this thread (and I didn't bring it up). Do we seriously not see the difference between two unrelated cases?

    The Mozilla case is about a company divesting itself from what it sees as a potential liability due to the (overzealous) backlash his employment caused. The Hobby Lobby case is about a company attempting to get out of covering medical services in its insurance policies.



    I said earlier that I think this is overreach by the Anti-Eich Brigade.
    So you support the right of Hobby Lobby, Chik Fil-A, Contran, or any Christian-founded company getting the history of all political contributions made by all of their employees, and forcing out those who made political contributions to pro-gay causes.

    People are free to boycott. I think it's stupid, but I respect peoples rights to do it. I boycott Progressive but not because of their politics - I'm sick of that freaking Flo woman! Argh!

    I'm glad you support the idea of a Christian company forcing out someone who donated to pro-gay causes. Because that's going to happen, and I'll remind you.

    Here's a news flash, I don't care about his religion one way or another. If he wants to outlaw gay marriage so be it. Please just don't cry when people speak out against you taking their right away. Furthermore, if they stop buying your product don't cry victim.

    No. Not so strange. Bigoted and overzealous. Same as those they say, or were, oppressing them. Although much of that has already fallen to the way side, but never mind that, as long as they can extract their pound of flesh for the sins of years past, they feel totally justified and moral. Now that IS strange, that they can't see how closely similar they are to what they say they hate.

    Corporations shouldn't be playing politics... Firefox/Modzilla should keep their mouths shut..

    It's bad for business to take a political position on a fringe social issue.
