Evil audacity: Firefox dumps CEO Brendan Eich because he contributed to support CA Proposition 8

The background

For those who haven’t been following this issue, Proposition 8 banned same-sex “marriages” in California. It passed, as has always been the case with anti-homosexual-marriage referendums. Not that it matters any more what the voters want! Against the expressed will of California voters, and completely without regard to the plain meaning of the US Constitution or the intentions of our Founders, the SCOTUS eventually declared Proposition 8 to be unconstitutional.

Brendan Eich, the former CEO of Mozilla (which is the parent company of the Firefox browser), contributed $1000 of his own money (not corporate money) in 2008 toward the passage of Proposition 8, in conformance with California and US law, and with the First Amendment.

The sodomite agenda

Seems that the sodomite Schutzstaffel wasn’t satisfied with the decriminalization of homosexual intercourse via judicial fiat – without regard to the the fact that sodomy imposes significant costs on society as a whole. No, they’ll never be happy no matter what we do. They are trying to dictate their own twisted and perverse notion of morality not only to us, but also to God.

That cannot end well.

Isaiah 5:20 King James Version (KJV)

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Herald Sun (AU): Don’t use Firefox. Who knows what other opinions Mozilla will suppress

If Eich has supported the other side of this very important debate, he’d still have his job. Conclusion: the Left is the now natural home of the truly intolerant and the enemies of free speech:

Brendan Eich has stepped down as CEO of Mozilla, a company he cofounded, following significant criticism for his earlier support of a legal measure banning gay marriage…

Eich … took over as the non-profit company’s CEO on March 24. Shortly after, a number of Mozilla employees publicly urged Eich to step down from the role, in reaction to a donation he made to the Proposition 8 effort, which sought to ban same-sex marriage in California in 2008…

The tipping point, however, appeared to come on Monday when OkCupid posted a notice to anyone using Firefox, a Mozilla product, urging them to switch browsers. “Mozilla’s new CEO, Brendan Eich, is an opponent of equal rights for gay couples,” OkCupid wrote in the notice. “We would therefore prefer that our users not use Mozilla software to access OkCupid.”…

Eich emphasized that his personal beliefs outside the office are not relevant inside the office… “They leave them at the door when they come to work on the Mozilla mission.”

Just two days later, however, Eich and Mozilla decided otherwise…

Then came the Mozilla statement, full of the weaselly yes-but-no equivocation of the Left, which wants the kudos of being for free speech but still wants it denied for others:

We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves…

Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard…

We have employees with a wide diversity of views. Our culture of openness extends to encouraging staff and community to share their beliefs and opinions in public. This is meant to distinguish Mozilla from most organizations and hold us to a higher standard. But this time we failed to listen, to engage, and to be guided by our community.

While painful, the events of the last week show exactly why we need the web. So all of us can engage freely in the tough conversations we need to make the world better.

Eich did “engage freely in the tough conversations we need to make the world better” and Mozilla then forced him out. Hypocrites.

Don’t use Firefox. It might one day not let you link to conversations Mozilla doesn’t like.

Now what?

Replace Firefox with these (please comment if you know of any others:)

Tired of being single?

If you feel the need to use a dating site, avoid OkCupid and its parent company, Match.com. They aren’t the only game in town! If you are a Christian and you want to meet a marriage partner who values fidelity, loyalty, and mutual respect, you might want to attend church functions in your own or neighboring parishes.

Mitchell’s comments are totally ridiculous!!

They are “an own goal”. This is disgraceful. Have an opinion as long as it conforms to ours.

How totalitarian of them, considering that CA voted for prop8 but it was overruled.

Eich invented Javascript. I suggest they need him more than he needs them!

I hope he comes up with something better than FireFox.

Going from some of the comments I have read from people all over the ‘net they are switching all over the place.
That doesn’t necessarily mean the other browsers are going to be better in this area.

And again, the IRS is behind all this and all the other cr*p coming from this administration!

By the way, it appears that mozilla started epic, so that may not be a good option.

Hi there.

Just a suggestion for another browser. I just downloaded Maxthon, but I haven’t had a chance to use it yet.

Also, just be aware that Pale Moon is a Mozilla browser.

One nice thing about Firefox was the fact that they didn’t store your browsing history. I don’t know if Maxthon does that.

@ Carolyn Tye,
Hidden Reflex, the company that produced the Epic Privacy Browser, appears to be independent of Mozilla. I think you might be confusing the Epic Privacy Browser with Epic Games, a company that is associated with Mozilla.

From the Epic website:

About the Epic Privacy Browser: What We Believe The Epic Privacy Browser is the first-ever web browser built on chromium designed to protect users’ privacy. Epic’s purpose is to provide as much privacy as possible in a web browser without “breaking the internet” or making the browser unusably slow. We believe that your searches and browsing should always be private.

We further believe that you should not have to trust us with your data — rather we should not have access to your data to the maximum extent possible. The way our Epic Browser and EpicSearch.me search engine together works by design protects your search queries from us being able to identify you to your query. Autofill in the Epic Privacy Browser is done via a database built into the Epic Privacy Browser on your system so it never sends what you type in the address bar to any server. Epic moreover never records your history except for tab forward/back, so that after a tab is closed, there is no record on your system of having visited that particular webpage (that site may have stored cookies to log you in which are deleted upon closing Epic).

The Epic Privacy Browser is a product from Hidden Reflex, a software product company founded by Alok Bhardwaj and based in Washington DC and Bangalore, India. Our investors include the Washington Post Company.

It seems that not only Hillary but Obama were against homosexual marriage around 2008.

Reggie Love, Huma Abedin anyone?

Politicians have a license to change their opinions as the wind blows. In short :they are liars.

This is so ridiculous when you consider that now, in the West, marriage between heterosexuals is on the decline – courtesy the feminist movement.

Another case of social engineering.
