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.

Prop 8 should have never seen the light of day. It's just judeo-christian statism.

Neither should the idea that homosexuals deserve any kind of special rights. They are not male nor female and are not based on race. They are a sexual deviation like bdsm. What is next we are going to start giving pvc wearers special rights too?? They are all the same thing!!!

But giving heterosexual couples extra rights is ok? I'm not going to debating homosexuality, bdsm or anything else. What I care about is people using the state to push their agenda (in this case, religious conformism). The state can't just cherry pick people as they please. I am pretty much in favour of getting rid of all family/couples "rights" and just maintaining an individual/state relation.
