Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
That's unfair - they have to protest ALL opponents at the same time they protest one particularly high profile one? Or, which of those 7 of 10 was appointed CEO without protest?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.
So then they just wanted him to lose his job I guess, since there is no evidence that he negatively impacted anyone's job at Mozilla in all his years there, even though he wasn't concerned with what they did on their non-work time. Wait - are you saying managers are supposed to worry about their employees' personal time too? That's a new one. So managers are now responsible for employees' private lives and what goes on in their private lives? Can managers have a say in their employees' private lives too?
Okay, so nobody protested the black bigots when they opposed gay marriage. I get it now.
I get you don't respect the position of LGBT here, but that's not the point. If the rights were important to you, would you accept a CEO dedicated to stripping them? For example, should an org with evangelical roots accept a CEO dedicated to abortion on demand in public, even IF at work the health plan doesn't cover abortion or contraception? That in the narrow confines of the workplace, he supports an anti-abortion stance, but has a different public stance?
