    No because you are comparing dynamite and cream cheese.

    Mozilla's CEO dismissal was about the company moving forward. It was about a concern over this person's personal politics interfering with the bottom line.

    The Duck Dynasty broohaha was more about the network and its parent getting perceived as giving a large platform to someone who said something offensive so they reacted quickly, assessed and brought him back. He was suspended pending a lot but mostly to see what advertisers do. In the world of cable entertainment, bigotry can be less of a liability than in business.

    If the university were to fire the professors it would likely be in violation of their contract, since this did not bring shame or hurt on the university whose student body is more likely to agree with the protest. As someone who has worked in academia it is hard to get rid of a professor over a lot of stuff, this could be seen as an educational exercise.

    Maybe people just don't agree with the lifestyle and its agenda. That is not hate.

    Much like it wasn't hate in 1960 when people just didn't agree with that black lifestyle and agenda.

    Yea, any time you don't agree with the gay agenda or life style. You are accused of "hate". So using hate, bigotry, homophobe and all that has lost its punch.

    I am a student at Sinclair Community College, where this took place. Yes, I was there. It was actually rather fun. LaBarbera was late, so we all took turns talking about why acceptance is better than vitriol and opposition. We stayed for a few minutes, then we just left.

    Some claim that this was orchestrated by faculty, offering extra credit in their classes. For my part, none of my faculty members even mentioned this event was occuring, the only way I knew about was billboards around campus (like the one pictured in the 1st link below). I do know that a student advocacy group (the Traditional Values Club) invited LaBarbera to speak, and another advocacy group (the Silent Majority) were the ones who staged the protest. Both groups have faculty members.

    The area where this happened was in the second floor of our library, we call it the Loggia. It can hold maybe 100-150 people, and as you can see in the picture, it was close to full when the event started, but after the exodus, maybe 20 people stayed to listen.

    Seeing as how this is a debate forum, what is it, exactly, you would like debated?

    The gay rights movement is failing? Seriously?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
