Apparently regardless of the fact that the Supreme Court has upheld (Twice) that political donations are in fact it is free speech. The “Tolerant” left will make sure that all Dissent from their opinion will be met with all the “tolerance that they can muster”, this guy only made the mistake of donation of 1000 dollars (not a million, not a billion (Mr. Obama raised close to 1B for his re-election campaign, but this was not a problem for the “tolerant” left). like our President gets every day from all of his fundraisers. To a cause that says marriage is between a man and a woman (several years ago, but thanks to the IRS that has been disclosed to some very far left groups). And now, he has been ruined by the “tolerant” left. Welcome to the new “freedom for me and not for thee” normal. Where everything the left disagrees with will be branded H8 and therefore not tolerated. Somehow, I don’t find this to be progress, or even Progressive (or in any way “tolerant” of differing opinions). http://www.forbes.com/…/mozillas-brendan-eich…/
Eich’s departure came shortly after employees at Mozilla brought to light the fact that back in 2008, he had donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 (disclosed by the IRS, from the current administration), a California law that banned same-sex marriage (courts have since struck down the measure). 1000$ donation does not hold the same weight as our President holding the same viewpoint (at the time), but hey now that thought is verboten by the state… See for yourself if you are interested in fairness at all… http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/may/11/barack-obama/president-barack-obamas-shift-gay-marriage/
This is no more than political correctness gone berserk. It is totalitarianism flying under the banner of marriage equality. How reactionary, how fascistic, and, yes, how darkly comic is that.
And to give you an idea how dangerous this is, for those who don’t already know, the names of those who donated to Proposition 8 were leaked by the IRS in 2012 to the same-sex marriage supporting Human Rights Campaign who then posted those returns, for a time, on their website. Human rights, but apparently not for Brendan Eich.
The weird part of all this is that gay marriage is virtually a fait accompli in our culture. Leading politicians in both parties either back it or say that it should be decided by the states. But the Robespierres go on.
UPDATED: Young Conservatives, speak their mind:
At some point in the near future, “equality” activists and Christians will meet on the battlefield of Matthew 19. In making the case against divorce, Jesus himself made an eloquent case for traditional marriage.
“Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,” Jesus told the Pharisees, “And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
