Must not oppose homosexual marriage

Homosexuality has become totalitarian

Tolerance is no longer sufficient. Enforced celebration is the new standard. Those who resist will be labeled bigots, and may be subject to having their lives or livelihoods destroyed. We're way past "live and let live." We've moved on to coercion in the name of "tolerance." The Christian photographer must agree to photograph a lesbian ceremony, or face lawsuits. The Muslim pastry chef must bake a cake for a gay ceremony that violates the teachings of her faith. And the CEO who once opposed legalized same-sex marriage through a private donation must be ousted from his job:

 Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich resigned under pressure after gay rights activists demanded that he step down or recant his support of traditional marriage laws. Eich donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that amended the state's constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman.

"I don't want to talk about my personal beliefs because I kept them out of Mozilla all these 15 years we've been going,” Eich told The Guardian. “I don't believe they're relevant.”

That wasn't an option. "CEO Brendan Eich should make an unequivocal statement of support for marriage equality," a Credoaction petition signed by almost 75,000 people said, per The Inquirer. "If he cannot, he should resign. And if he will not, the board should fire him immediately."

 Eich is out on his ear for the unpardonable sin of subscribing to a moral and political belief so mean-spirited and close-minded that it was shared by President Obama back when the fateful contribution was made. (Obama was never actually against gay marriage, but it was his public stance for awhile).

Indeed, a majority of California voters endorsed Proposition 8 that year, including substantial majorities of Hispanics and African-Americans.

When Eich's private beliefs recently came to light, online petitioners demanded that he either renounce them or be fired. Think about that. "Renounce your beliefs and agree with us, or else" is not a sentence that should be uttered lightly, if ever, in a free society.


Some conservatives are now uninstalling Firefox as a protest.  Google Chrome is generally a good substitute for Firefox.

Google is as or more liberal than Mozilla so it is best not to support either. Most tech companies are liberal because the overwhelming majority of their mostly young workers have grown up with no knowledge of history or the consequences of liberal policies. They generally have no concept of morality, only the emotional trappings of the liberal philosophy.

The folks at Mozilla are a bunch of hypocrits. Quite a few of them donated to Obama when HE was against gay marriage in 2007/8. Also, why do they still have a Tokyo office? Marriage = "one man / one woman" is in the Japanese Consititution. Are there any Muslims on staff at Mozilla? Hypocrits.

I am no longer using Firefox, and I will discourage others to do the same from now on. I sent them a note about my disappointment at their intolerance and my intent (now done) to discard all things Firefox/Mozilla.

May not get through to them, but I've taken my stand and will see who else I can get to stand with me.

It is ironic that the 2 groups most protected from offence in the U.S. are Gays and Muslims when in Muslim countries they execute gays

Homosexuals already have equality. They have the same rights as everybody else. They want special privileges as a reward for their anti-social, repugnant activities.
Some of them are vicious about it.

Leftists everywhere are rejoicing at this because it's their plan to drive out all the conservatives from every public place.

1:11 AM Yep, just like not so long ago and not so far away, everyone had the same rights to marry someone of the same race, but not other ones. And mixing of races was considered by many as repugnant and anti-social, and expressing such opinions were indeed often quite vicious in practice.

Race is not a choice.

Did 11:24 choose to be heterosexual? Can he/she choose tomorrow to be homosexual (not just pretending)?

heterosexual is normal, homosexuality is not. For the entire run of civilized man homosexuality was not an issue because those who practiced it kept it to themselves and did not force their lifestyle on others.

You choose to be gay just as millions choose NOT to be gay! Look at the wife of you beloved socialist dictator Mayor of NY!

Also your missing the point entirely. 93% of the population are now being FORCED to except homosexuality (3% at best of the population). This is not tolerance this is fascism!

One more point, nobody is forcing gays to sit in the back of the bus, nobody is forcing them on to reservations. They can live together , love each other, hold jobs, drive, vote, do anything they want but call what they have marriage.

4:10 - your dictating terms, (especially in your last statement) sounds very much like fascism!
You seem not have heard the phrase "tyranny of the majority" - and what is "natural" is a matter of definition and usually reflects partiality (as in your case).
And do you really think you can choose to be a homosexual as it's not just "acting gay" and having superficial sex, but a lot deeper psychologically with origins in genetic pre-disposition &/or fetal hormones &/or early emotional experiences, none of which are choices or realistically reversible.
Of course some people are called bi-sexual who are attracted to either sex to some degree, and then have the option of choice, presumably.
PS. Don't just assume I'm "gay" or socialist because I don't support your view of forcing gays to keep themselves out of your sight - which is not very different to staying at the "back of the bus"!!
