Gee Mr Eich was forced out for sending money to an organization that supports traditional marriage at the same time as Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and millions of other Californians also claimed they supported traditional marriage.

But never mind, we have a double standard for those who will not follow the decree that anyone including billions of Christians, Muslims, and Jews as well as millions of people of no particular faith tradition. who don't kowtow to the gay activists demands to redefine marriage, must be purged from polite society. This is a near quote from Gay Activist Andrew Sullivan so don't claim it's some right wing nuttery.

All the while Mozilla waxes long about how they honor diversity (unless you don't agree with gay activists) and honor free speech (unless you don't honor gay activists) they clearly want a rigid ideology that checks all of the proper Leftist boxes.

Really sad and frankly scary. Is this America?

Update: We caught up with Portland's Thomas Thurston, who shared his data driven take on the disruption controversy.
