Another scalp for Big Gay Inc. means diminishing freedom of conscience for Americans.
In the type of story that has become all too common, the Los Angeles Times reports: ”Just days after taking the job, Brendan Eich has resigned as chief executive of Mozilla, the maker of Firefox, after coming under fire for his 2008 support of Proposition 8, the California constitutional amendment that disallowed the marriage of same-sex couples in the state.” That prompted this comment by a smart reader (“brdcstr”):
So Mozilla promotes a lifelong employee based upon his skills and leadership qualities, presumably after an exhaustive search, only to fire him a week into his tenure based upon a donation he made to a cause they differed on?
What are they running over there, a business or a social club? Sounds like the type of company that only welcomes monolithic thinking.
I would be willing to bet that the cackling hyena who asked for his resignation voted for Obama in 2008… When he was opposed to gay marriage, before he was for it.
Gotta love the liberals who falsely pride themselves as being tolerant, as long as you agree with them. If not, they would prefer to silence your voice instead of engage in debate to promote dialogue and better understanding.
Time to go uninstall my Firefox browser. Like the company, it keeps crashing, rendering it useless.
I’m afraid that my friend Matt Barber, founder of Barbwire.com (and an AFTAH board member), is correct: the rising tide of ‘homo-fascist’ bigotry–or call it ‘homo-Marxist’ cultural aggression if you choose–threatens to destroy freedom in this great nation. Note that it is no longer just disagreeing publicly with homosexuality that triggers the powerful forces of Homosexual Indignation and Hate, but merely standing up for natural marriage (one man, one woman), as EX-Mozilla CEO Eich did in supporting California’s Prop 8 in 2008.
Eich, who gave $1,000 to help pass Prop 8, was joined by over seven million “homophobic bigots” in 2008–if you believe pro-homosexual fanatics. Prop 8 passed by a margin of 52.24-47.76 percent, with a popular vote of 7,001,084 in favor and 6,401,482 against.
A troubling pattern of homosexual activist intimidation, corporate or individual capitulation, and then self-censorship or mandated ideological compliance seems to be the West’s New Normal–in defense of the abnormal.
Mozilla’s politically correct baloney
Reading Mozilla’s Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker’s statement on Eich’s resignation reminds me of the old Soviet propaganda: savvy citizens have to read through the obfuscatory lines (a fancy way of saying B.S.) to decipher the real meaning behind the DiversitySpeak. For example, there’s this:
Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech….
Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness. We welcome contributions from everyone regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views. Mozilla supports equality for all.
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.
Apparently Eich’s “equality” and “freedom of speech” did not extend to his freedom as an American to support a popular, pro-natural-marriage amendment, which prevailed in California in 2008 before being negated by left-leaning courts including the Supreme Court. Does Mozilla’s “culture of openness” and “inclusion” extend to Eich’s exercise of his constitutional liberty to support said ballot measure–which merely preserved the age-old understanding of marriage as between man and woman? No, it emphatically does not.
So cut the diversity crap, Mozilla: you pandered and succumbed to homosexual activist power and intimidation–plain and simple. Don’t insult us by pleading that you did so in the name of equality, inclusion and diversity. And do not pretend you respect “religious views” when you just neutralized Eich’s in the service of post-Christian, pro-sexual-perversion ideology.
Mozilla’s actions (not words) have made it clear, to paraphrase the prescient Orwell: “All employees and their beliefs are equal, but some are more equal than others.”
Can Pandora’s Box be shut?
Only in the minds of radical egalitarian ideologues can homosexual behavior, a sin and a destructive behavior, be considered “equal” to wholesome sexual morality as epitomized by God’s design of fidelity in marriage. The latter brings man and woman together in perfect complementary order. These wonderful unions then naturally, yet miraculously, produce children and families, and life goes on. As Chicago’s Catholic Cardinal Frances George has said, regardless of race or ethnicity or religion, marriage uniting the sexes is the same all over the world.
All this was once take for granted in saner times. But the Pandora’s Box of Proud Perversion has been flung wide open, and if may be well-nigh impossible now to preserve respect and liberty for moral and religious advocates of sexual normalcy and the natural (and biblical) marital ethic. Of course, that is precisely the goal of Big Gay Inc. and its media enablers. Who knew that homosexuality in the West would so rapidly morph from “the love that dare not speak its name” into the “love against which practical people dare not speak in public” (without fear of reprisals from Big Gay Inc.)?
They’re Here, They’re Queer, Get Used to … mandatory, enforced pro-homosexual groupthink–to paraphrase the old Queer Nation chant.
Always remember: God is not mocked, and He does not take His cues from the Sin Movement that calls itself “Gay.” Stay strong, keep your head and never stop defending Truth against Big Lies like the folly of what homosexual activists call “marriage equality.” It’s not equal. It’s not marriage. It’s just sin, on steroids. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org
