    I am agnostic about gay marriage but passionately support freedom of expression and free speech- free speech which is opposed by Mozilla.

    A very worrying development...

    "Mozilla CEO in trouble for a five-year-old donation to Proposition Eight, the successful California ballot measure that banned gay marriage".
    "Mr Eich declined to eat gay crow. And so yesterday he was fired. Mozilla's chairwoman Mitchell Baker issued the usual tortured justification:

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


    It is NOT hard to know. Let people express their views and if you disagree, counter them with reason, logic and evidence.And then if you still find their ideas distasteful, refuse to interact with them socially...but sacking someone for holding views held by billions of people?

    If you only agree with free speech for people you agree with, you don't believe in free speech.
