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.Yes, Mozilla is big on inclusiveness and diversity, except if that diversity upsets the gay mafia. I use Firefox and Thunderbird at home. But that is about to change.
"We didn't act like you'd expect Mozilla to act," wrote Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a blog post. "We didn't move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We're sorry."
UPDATE 2: And the homosexual insistence that there is our way, or the highway, continues. From April 3, 2014 ABC News:
A World Vision board member has resigned in protest after the Christian aid group quickly reversed its decision to hire employees in same-sex marriages.
Jacquelline Fuller, director of corporate giving for Google Inc., said in an email Wednesday to The Associated Press that she remains a "huge fan" of the group's work on behalf of the poor, but she resigned Friday "as I disagreed with the decision to exclude gay employees who marry."
She declined to comment further.UPDATE 3: You want to know how fascist liberalism has become?
As Maggie Gallagher noted on the Corner, thousands [of Mozilla employees] have signed a petition calling for new Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich to either openly endorse gay marriage or be fired.It is a good thing that Brendan (who I knew from years ago in Silicon Valley) didn't decide that it was okay to fire everyone at Mozilla that contributed to the No on 8 campaign. Of course, that would be illegal under the Unruh Civil Rights Act. As was forcing Eich out.
UPDATE 4: It appears that Eich was outed about his contribution by an unlawful IRS leak of the tax return of the National Organization for Marriage (who ran the Prop. 8 campaign). The homofascism is very deep.
