Mozilla CEO Forced Out For Opposing Gay Marriage

From Reuters:

Mozilla CEO resigns, opposition to gay marriage drew fire

By Sarah McBride | April 3, 2014

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Mozilla Chief Executive Brendan Eich has stepped down, the company said on Thursday, after an online dating service urged a boycott of the company’s web browser because of a donation Eich made to opponents of gay marriage.

The software company came under fire for appointing Eich as CEO last month. In 2008, he gave money to oppose the legalization of gay marriage in California, a hot-button issue especially at a company that boasts about its policy of inclusiveness and diversity.

According to reports, Brendan Eich’s donation in support of CA’s Proposition 8 (against ‘same sex marriage’) only came out because the Internal Revenue Service leaked a copy of the National Organization for Marriage’s 2008 tax return to a gay-advocacy group. And it made Eich’s criminal act known to the world.

By the way, back in 2008, Mr. Eich’s position on ‘gay marriage’ was precisely identical to Barack Hussein Obama’s position at the time. And, like Obama, Mr. Eich says he has subsequently ‘evolved’ on the issue. So why hasn’t Mr. Obama been forced to step down from office by a smear campaign on Twitter?

"We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act," wrote Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a blog post…

Yes, they did. We never doubted it for a minute.

While gay activists applauded the move, many in the technology community lamented the departure of Eich, who invented the programming language Javascript and co-founded Mozilla…

Who cares what he has done? Burn the intolerant heretic!

Eich donated $1,000 in 2008 in support of California’s Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in the state until it was struck down by the Supreme Court in June.

By the way, in case anyone is wondering why was so important for the IRS to find out who was donating to the Tea Party in 2010, this is why. They want to make conservative donors targets for the leftist mobs.

His resignation came days after OkCupid.com, the popular online dating site, called for a boycott of Mozilla Firefox to protest the world’s No. 2 Web browser naming a gay marriage opponent as chief executive…

So a website dedicated to ‘love’ started a malicious Twitter campaign that would put a pack of rabid dogs to shame.
