Mozilla & Gecko clones

Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn't live up to it. We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it's because we haven't stayed true to ourselves.

We didn’t act like you'd expect Mozilla to act. We didn't move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We're sorry. We must do better.

Brendan Eich has chosen to step down from his role as CEO. He's made this decision for Mozilla and our community.

The only sensible move.

RE[4]: Yet another reason why

He is right. In Latin marriage is matrimonium from mater (mother)+monium (quality of). Its meaning is the right of a woman to be a mother within the law after leaving his father's home.
The marriage is an institution to protect the descendance in all cultures. In ancient times this was more important than nowadays because the world and society changed (savage beast are not a danger anymore for the majority) but that's the reality of marriage. It was important for the survival of a society. For example, in Socrates' times they legalised polygamy to increase the number of citizens. Having children was a social oblgation and marriage a mean to protect them.
Denying that is ignorant.
