Gay Agenda claims a new victim: Mozilla CEO

They just want to be accepted as equals. Nothing more, nothing less.



Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich forced to resign for supporting traditional marriage laws
BY JOEL GEHRKE | APRIL 3, 2014 AT 3:48 PM


Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich resigned under pressure after gay rights activists demanded that he step down or recant his support of traditional marriage laws.

Eich donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that amended the state's constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman.

"I don't want to talk about my personal beliefs because I kept them out of Mozilla all these 15 years we've been going, Eich told The Guardian. I don't believe they're relevant.

That wasn't an option. "CEO Brendan Eich should make an unequivocal statement of support for marriage equality," a Credoaction petition signed by almost 75,000 people said, per The Inquirer. "If he cannot, he should resign. And if he will not, the board should fire him immediately."

When asked if his beliefs about marriage should constitute a firing offense the way racism or sexism does, Eich argued that these religious beliefs and beliefs popular as of 2008 should not be used as a basis for dismissal.

"I don't believe that's true, on the basis of what's permissible to support or vote on in 2008," he told CNET. "It's still permissible. Beliefs that are protected, that include political and religious speech, are generally not something that can be held against even a CEO. I understand there are people who disagree with me on this one."

On Thursday, Mozilla announced that he had resigned. "Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn't live up to it," executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker wrote. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right"

You're aware that it's an online petition right? Which had no actual affect on the man's employment.

There's also a petitions at CREDO Action to raise minimum wage, introduce carbon taxes, deny the Keystone XL, and a host of other dumb shit.

I feel like it's a shame that it doesn't look like he was given a chance. Sure, maybe his statement was bullshit. I don't know. But maybe those activists just helped cause a guy to leave a position of power (CEO) who could have used that platform to further their own cause.

And cancel SNL and The Colbert Report.

Point is, technology and society have evolved to a point where all we do is get outraged at perceived slights in the opinions, actions or humor of others, and employ social media to turn our personal 1WPs into a movement to wreck their shit.

How can one not see this as corrosive? "I must find people who irritate me and destroy them."

It's like the cartoon, 'Wait!!! Someone's wrong on the internet!!!'

People have always whined. People will always whine. An online petition is no more corrosive or powerful than a group of old hens on Bingo night.

This wouldn't be any different than if this were 1980 and a CEO came out and said that we should legalize pot and decriminalize drugs. That was in a time of the "Just say no" campaign, when drug use was viewed by most of the country as a scourge and something that should be protected against to the very highest degree.

Or... remember the treatment that anti-war protesters in the early 2000s received when the country was debating whether or not to invade Iraq? Granted, a ton of those people were huge douchebags, but once again, you had a majority opinion (the 2004 re-election of Bush confirms that) shooting down a smaller one.

Mozilla is a California-based company. The board of directors of that company obviously has a no-controversy policy that they don't wish to dabble in. They believe that the conversation has shifted in this country where if you have to take a public stance, it's best to take one of acceptance. It might be different in another part of the country, or it might not have mattered if people didn't publicly protest the company (which they are ENTIRELY in their right to do).

That's life. It's business. You may not like it, but those are the simple circumstances behind all this. It's not at all a mob mentality like you seem to be suggesting.

Sure, AustinChief.

Then every single hospital would have to have their own polices and practices on dealing with husband or wife instead of that being protected by law, like next of kin emergency medical decisions. Visitation rights.

And what would happen to money matters? Death Benefits. Survivor benefits?Instead of set, defined laws protecting spouses,we would have?

There is a fairly long list of marriage rights and benefits.
