    re: Mozilla’s CEO steps down amid gay marriage furor[W:577]

    He was asked to step down for holding a position that is vehemently contrary to that of the company that he was going to lead. I don't understand the confusion.

    If i was the ceo of a company that actively identifies it's self as pro women rights and, lo and behold, a quote of me saying "Women belong barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen" is leaked to the public - all of sudden I'm not fit for my position. It's logic.

    It's like Riverdad being the head of Google. It's just would make no since.

    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?
    I encourage the concept of a slow, gradual process of making it unpopular to voice anti-SSM concepts, yes. I'm just rather amused that the other side doesn't consider what they do "bullying." I'm all for bullying.

    Okay, tell you what, I'll go work for a company in which you're my boss, and when you find out I'm a big ol Libbo you can give me the same treatment Eich got. I can take it.

    The fact remains, he is responsible for representing the company and he failed.

    That doesn't answer the question. How do you think the rest of the country treated the opponents of our various Civil Rights movements?

    Were these opponents given the unchallenged ability to serve as business leaders and community leaders? That they faced no consequence for their views?

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.

    Without action, no one knows your beliefs.

    Mozilla makes a browser, homosexual "marriage" advocacy and propaganda is not part of their mission.

    No, they are pro gay rights as well. So is Microsoft.
