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

    Mozilla's embattled chief executive is resigning after a revolt among employees drew attention to political contributions he made in 2008 opposing same-sex marriage.
    The maker of the popular Firefox Web browser announced Thursday on its blog that Brendan Eich would no longer be serving as its chief executive — just days after Eich had taken the helm of the organization.
    "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves," wrote executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker.

    Cue the people who start crying about "freedom of speech" without understanding what it means.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    That was supposed to be feces and not fornication. I presume you would feed him my poop.

    I would have mixed feelings about this if he was fired or forced to resign. I believe that employees have a right to express their political (or any other) opinions outside of work and I support legislation to protect that right. I also have no problem with the boycott. On the other hand, his actions were materially harming the company and a CEO represents the company to the public much more than any other employee does. Ultimately, CEO's do not need or deserve the same protections for their off-work activities that most other employees should have.

    Was he imprisoned for his opinion?

    Edit - I think I read your comment wrong.

    I know that. However, that won't stop people who don't understand what FoS means from claiming it was.
