    My suggestion to you is before you use complex things like similes you should first understand what the topic is about.

    the company wimped out instead of following chickfila which stood up and actually improved their business for doing it.
    Can't blame Mozilla for responding to free market rinciples and acting to protect the company's image.

    The analogy is silencing any opposition. That's become commonplace and accepted very easily among the leftists.

    I'm actually not condemning Eich for his decision to stand up to them. As I've said several times in this thread it's an ethical dilemma everyone faces: acquiesce and keep your job, or stand up for your principals and risk losing it. Eich chose the latter. It's naive to think one should never face any risks for standing up for your principals. It's certainly naive to think that Mozilla didn't have the right for standing up for theirs. It's hypocritical if nothing else.

    But the employees of Mozilla should just shut up? Utter hypocrisy.

    Duh, no one silenced him. His actions were protested.

    let them scream and cry and whine and pitch a fit. companies should just ignore them and their feigned outrage and they will go away. when they learn that people will just ignore them then they will stop.
    It's a problem now because the IRS, quite illegally, released the donor list to GLAAD. That really should be the crux of this story but many will support the illegal actions of big government if it suits their immediate agenda, not realizing at all the long term consequences of their actions.

    By his 'actions' you mean the $1000 he contributed? Many people did the same thing. Should they all lose their jobs because it might harm their companies reputation? What does it say to anyone else who might oppose Gay marriage, or any other controversial subject?

    We can see that Leftists will silence speakers with whom they disagree, as well as personally attack anyone who threatens their POV. It has become the same with Global Warming.

    Did the employees of Mozilla have a vote? Apparently you must lose your job if you contribute to any campaign of which others disagree. I cannot see the upside to this.

    Yet, you're unable to explain your caustic response to my post? Does my post have no place in American society? Does my simile (more likely an analogy) have any relevance to the discussion of gay marriage?
