In what seems to have become the new norm for our day, yet another high profile figure is now out of his job after being relentlessly attacked for the past few days by the intolerance crowd. Specifically this time, it was the new CEO of Mozilla.
Mozilla exec out of job for gay rights intolerance. Some think that
I have, and will continue to support the LGBT community in the past, and have a number of friends that are gay. However, it's getting ridiculous that the new go-to tactic is to bully people who have opinions to the point where they have to vanish from sight. It seems a high profile story like this can't help but pop up ever other week all of a sudden. This is incredibly annoying for me, because in my heart I want the movement to succeed, and I know that eventually they will...but actions like this seem to be simply self-destructive.
Direct quote from the article:
“The whole episode disgusts me - as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society. If this is the gay rights movement today - hounding our opponents with a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else - then count me out.”
