    and this is bad because?

    Well, good for Andrew Sullivan. What exactly is the point? Obviously, I missed it?

    And I am fully in support of the protest they launched. I'm still not clear on what they wanted the end effect to be though. What did they want? They didn't say that the Mozilla culture was anti-gay, or that gay employees were treated unfairly, so there's seemingly nothing to change there. Did they just want Eich to be punished for doing something that offended them?
    From what I've read there is a concern about the disconnect between his support of LGBT rights in the workplace, and funding changes to the Constitution intended to discriminate against those employees in their private lives. And I think it was a problem that he never did disavow his support for those efforts to discriminate against them in the public arena.

    And I saying they "wanted to punish" Eich for supporting efforts to strip their rights isn't really it - they didn't want a man who wanted to strip them of their rights, their relationships forever second class, as the public face of their company.

    I hope the Left keeps this up. What a great way to isolate and marginalize their agenda by pissing off a vast majority of Americans.

    You would have thought they would have learned their lesson back when they attacked Phil Robertson.

    If you saw the previous post, I missed your point entirely.... My apologies.

    And from what I've read, he never did anything in the workplace to infringe on the rights of LGBT employees, in his own particular staff or otherwise.

    So what did they want to accomplish?

    Where was their outcry against the 7 out of 10 blacks in California who also opposed their right to marry in 2008? A little consistency in the target of their outrage would have been nice.

    I'm not Jack so you have to ask him.

    I personally was very interested in the opinions of a man who has been gay for many years and who has been discussing gay rights for many years.
