“In 2008, Barack Obama and Brendan Eich both were against gay marriage. Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional. Barack Obama inexplicably remains, as of this writing, president of the United States of America, but Mr. Eich has just been forced out as CEO of Mozilla because of his political views.” – National Review

“As one who has been a longtime supporter of gay marriage and remain one, allow me to say that I am appalled by Mozilla’s decision to fire (or ‘force to resign’) its newly installed CEO (and inventor of Java Script) Brendan Eich because Eich gave $1000 a few years back for Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative to ban same-sex marriage.” – Roger L.

“I would appreciate it if Bruce Braley would start pacing himself on the stupid things that he says: I don’t think that it’s fair to let one goofball monopolize my attention (and front page space).  We have quite a while before November hits, so there’s no reason why Rep. Braley can’t complete his self-humiliation in a measured and efficient fashion. ” – Moe Lane/RedState
