    I say it's now fair game - start firing everyone who supports the notion of homosexual "marriage."
    Well, actually, you do understand that Eich stepped down and wasn't fired, right?

    No one is fired at that level, it's always a stepping down, I want to spend time with my family, I'm doing it for the good of the company, etc. He was pushed, let's not split hairs.

    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.
    On the other hand, bullying would also suggest that those who would bar one from getting legally married are the one's bullying and are not merely disagreeing with marriage, eh?

    Rock Hudson wasn't prevented from marrying. No one is stopping anyone from getting married.

    They can get legally married. I don't think any state requires a litmus test asking before someone gets married if they've had sex with another of the same gender or have same sex attractions.

    The issue is that the definition of marriage where they do want to get married according to how they define it is something that needs to be changed. But then again, do you support "fighting fire with fire" if I'm supposed to take it that those who support traditional marriage are all bullies?

    As I actually agreed with Grimm (I know, Hell just got a little breezy), if you don't think he got very, very nicely paid for stepping down then you're a little naive. Trust me, Eich will be able to make the rent this month.

    I was involved with SV start-ups back in the late 90s. My FIL is a big mucky-muck in the area. I know how things work. That's not the point.
