And here we go again with the oh-so-tolerant Left displaying its level of tolerance — just ask resigned Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich about that. As reported by Breitbart.com, “Mozilla co-founder Brendan Eich is stepping down as CEO after protests of his support of a gay marriage ban in California. The Mountain View-based nonprofit maker of the Firefox browser had promoted him last week. At issue was Eich’s $1,000 donation in 2008 to the campaign to pass California’s Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment that outlawed same-sex marriages. The ban was overturned when the U.S. Supreme Court last year left in place a lower-court ruling striking down the ballot measure.”
Let’s not forget Proposition 8 was passed by the electorate who came out in force during the 2008 Obama-wave election, and said THEY wanted marriage defined as between one man and one woman. Subsequently a gay special interest lobby took the case to the courts, and activist judges overruled the electorate.
So not only is the radical gay Left intolerant of opposing opinions, they do not respect the decision of the voting electorate and will demand that their way be the law of the land. This is simply a case of bullying.
Of greater concern however, is the serious threat to the rule of law in America and the results of judicial activism and legislating from the bench by unelected black-robed judges who are forcing their values upon this Republic.
Spare me the histrionics and screeching about “homophobia.” It is a very serious problem when the majority of this country is being attacked by intimidation, force, and coercion. These are the tools that radical progressive socialists must use in order to enact their agenda because taken as it is, it is most often rejected.
When the referendum of the people, such as Proposition 8, can be dismissed based upon the whims and protests of a small minority, it is in danger of spiraling out of control. The Declaration of Independence states that every individual is endowed with certain unalienable rights: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
If someone deems their pursuit of happiness must include loving someone of the same sex, that is their right. But their sexual behavior does not grant them any more rights than anyone else. Marriage is an issue decided at the state level, as the states issues marriage licenses. It should be decided by the electorate of the states, not by judges or attorneys general.
I want someone to explain to me what is a gay right? What additional rights does one have based upon sexual preference? And don’t give me the argument that gayness is a civil right, like race. Skin color is not a behavior.
Furthermore, Americans possess a First Amendment right to free speech and if one certain special interest group decides to punish someone based on his or her right to freedom of expression — we have a problem in America.
Mozilla Chairwoman Mitchell Baker apologized for the company’s actions in an open letter online Thursday. She says Eich is stepping down for the company’s sake. She says Mozilla believes in equality and freedom of speech. Her words ring hollow based upon acquiescing to these protests.
One thing is for certain, the black civil rights movement was not about intolerance and intimidation. It didn’t have to be because it was rooted in Judeo-Christian principles. Black leaders petitioned God to enable the cause, and it was just and right by the principles of liberty and freedom enshrined in the fundamental values of America. Because the radical gay Leftists are operating without moral conviction, coercion, force, intimidation, intolerance, and anger are their modus operandi to achieve their ends.
You can call me whatever you want, but I, like many Americans, refuse to be bullied.
