Intolerance and bigotry in our Valley

Original post made by Sean, Midtown, on Apr 5, 2014

Brendan Eich, of Mozilla, was savaged by the gay mafia. He doesn't agree with gay marriage, like most California voters, especially Black voters. Most gay voters don't agree with plural marriage, and that is their bigoted choice. However, gay bigots should not be prevented from becoming the CEO of a tech company, simply because they oppose marriage choice. Will our Human Rights committee, in Palo Alto, please take on this bigotry?

This is the end of free speech and being the land of the free.

If someone cannot contribute personal funds to a legal proposition on the ballot without fear of losing his job, then there is no longer freedom of speech and the country can no longer be called The Land of Free.

This is not an issue about gay marriage, it is an issue of personal freedoms. We have secret ballots for these type of reasons. It seems we should also be able to donate to a political cause in secret also.

Intolerance is intolerance and when our liberties are not tolerated we no longer have freedom.
