Brendan Eich is an American computer programmer and creator of the JavaScript scripting language"

He helped found Mozilla and was just newly appointed as CEO. He gave a thousand dollars in 2008 to Prop 8 in California. That is what the fuss is about.

 

Those who speak up are the salt and light of their culture.  Want our society to change for the better? Then Christians need to speak up daily.  We need no Rip Van Winkles.

Yeah...sad day in America.  Amazing how much power a small, devient segment of society has.

 

So now you can be fired if you hold views contrary to the accepted politically correct ones. 

 

Who's next, I wonder?  I suspect clergy will come under pressure to toe the line, since the constitution has now become meaningless.

Yes I heard about this. Currently there is a Conservative campaign to boycott Firefox. Many as we speak are changing browsers.

Wait, all of you realize that he supported a ban on gay marriage,

but because of this are saying you want to switch from Firefox to another web browser?

 

Also, to my understanding, the small boycott against Firefox is not from a conservative group.

In the past actually, Google Chrome's Vice-President supported gay rights.

 

I use Firefox, better interface and I like that the now CEO also shares that homosexual marriage is not a Biblical marriage.

 

I misread the original post,

such a sad thing.

Thanks for the correction!

Have a Blessed day!

There is definitely a boycott from a Conservative group.

He may have supported a ban on gay marriage but HE WAS FIRED from Mozilla for doing so. That's the whole point. That's the reason for the boycott!

it does not matter what the new CEO supports or doesn't support cell-it has to do with the fact that they still buckled under pressure and fired him for his beliefs and being outspoken about it. As far as being from a conservative group? origins or not, its not being boycotted by conservatives.

Do I understand correctly that he gave a private donation (out of his own pocket), and the pro-gay group threatened to boycott the company for that?

 

Yikes!

I apologize,

I misread the story on the earlier story that Firefox had chosen him as their CEO

My bad, I will definitely join in and not use Firefox.

Too bad, I was even thinking of donating to Firefox before.

 

Thanks for the correcting me!!!

 

Have a Blessed day!

Eich gave the donation for the fight against same sex marriage in 2008; about six years ago and had not been saying much about it recently. He refused to apologize for it and was forced out. It looks like the USA is becoming increasing polarized. I have for the most part been neutral on these social issues, but I consider this incident to be an outrage and I will probably be increasingly partisan in the future.

Sadly it would appear that Christians have lost the cultural war in the USA. But who knows; we could have a 3rd Great Awakening.

I just uninstalled firefox from my computer. It was sad that I had to do that. I am sure that the modernists and sexual revolutionaries will be using what muscle they have too much and create a back lash against them.

someone mentioned Opera in the other thread (which I can't find right now) and I looked it up and installed it.....   it will take some getting used to but except for how one sets favorites it seems to be pretty good.   And very fast.  It is using some kind of spell checker that was with it.

Ironically, I just started using Chrome again, Fire Fox was just starting to give me problems.
