He and the majority of Californions supported Prop 8, but because he had a view in 2008 about traditional family, he loses his job.  The same view, by the way, that our current president had in 2008.

 

Is this the gay and lesbian movement?  Is this the tolerance we are supposed to embrace?  Have different views, you will be punished. 

 

Could this ruin any momentum the gay/lesbian movement has going at the moment?

He didn't just vote in favor of prop 8, he donated $1,000 to support the campaign. That's not personal just belief, that's advocacy. He advocated anti gay politics.

Also, he didn't get fired, he quit in the face of a social media uproar, which citizens are more than entitled to do.

No problem with any of it here.

I just love how being against gay people having the same rights and opportunities as you has to be called "supporting the traditional family" it make it sound nice or "just an opinion" yet every time I ask my friends who oppose this stuff how gay marriage has affected their traditional family no one answers.

Upon further reading it looks like Mozilla was facing losing enough business that it was probably the right thing to do. Sad that he donated to prop 8 which 52% of californians voted for.

Why does it matter if 52% of Californians voted for it?
