Mozilla CEO forced to resign over his opposition to gay marriage

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.

POLL: Are Christians being persecuted across the world?

"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.

well said.

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..........

Greg, I think the only reason it hasn't happen yet is because there are still Christians living there.

2Tim ch 3 comes to mind.....

So who makes this company more money- gays or normal people,gotta go where the money is and nothing against gays but they a smaller segment of society 

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.

Revelations....101

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

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
