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.
"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."
The next step for Mozilla's leadership "is still being discussed," she added, with more information to come next week
Why are we continually allowing 3.8% of the US population drive the train? They do not want equality, they want to be placed in a special status and for all of us to bow down to them. I could care less what people do in thier bedroom, but, I'm sick and tired of them trying to shove it in my face.
Don - you are completely correct. I for one will let Mozilla know which search engine I will NOT be using. If you make stupid business decisions you will pay the price.
Lets all just hope and pray that the San Andreas fault line gets active and does what God intended it to do..........

The assault on Christianity keeps revving up. They won't stop until all Christians have been silenced.
The left is moving simultaneously with islam.
He did the right thing but this is wrong.
Guess what, Mozilla, although I like your browser, I'll never use it again. You've become just another arm of the thought police. You've just become intellectual Nazis. You've allowed yourselves to become intimidated by a very vocal and politically connected minority that really don't represent mainstream Americans. When that minority can dictate what I may be allowed to think and say with respect to morality based upon Christian principles, then they and Mozilla can kiss off.
OK. I'll be right back. I'm back. I had to uninstall Mozilla Firefox. Any group or organization that supports queers doesn't get my support.
uninstalled from mine too
