    If they're willing to face the public backlash for it, more power to them, if they can do it legally and aren't outright firing people (which Mozilla didn't do). I think the chance of that happening is about zero.

    Note that I support their right to; not that I support the action. I haven't supported Mozilla's actions either.

    Traditional marriage is the new bigotry.

    That would be too legitimate. It has to be because of your personal opinions. Your boss found out you voted for a Democrat or you support homosexual marriage and boom, that's why you're fired. Nothing to do with your speech or actions in regard to your employer.

Now that IS strange, that they can't see how closely similar they are to what they say they hate.
    I still think they don't get the irony of their own words. "You're intolerant and a bigot because you don't see it my way", that's what I keep reading. That's I guess a more progressive way of saying "When I want your opinion I'll give it to you"

    I can't wait. But right now they're too wrapped up in the world where everyone who doesn't agree with them is a bigot.

    I'll speak for myself. I don't want to boycott, I want to see people like you fired for expressing your opinion on this issue. I too want to see some scalps, some personal wreckage in the lives of liberals.

    I boycott Progressive insurance too, because it's lousy insurance. And yes, those commercials are terrible.

    1. I never said I supported the idea of a Christian company doing that, just like I don't support Mozilla taking the actions they did -- it was overly knee-jerk and probably a dumb idea. I support the right to do so, however, as long as it doesn't violate employment law.

    2. If "Christian companies" want to come off as petty and vindictive as Mozilla's employees have, hey, knock yourselves out.

    I actually look forward to the first time that happens. The Liberals will be on here howling like scorched cats.

    I think being against gay marriage is bigoted because it is supporting exclusionary policy.
