  • It's ok to fire racist people for being racist, and homophobic people for being homophobic, in my opinion.

  • It should be a company's right to keep only employees with certain views.

  • Yes, the employee is a representation of the company in many cases.

  • Everyone has a right to their opinion in the United States and their political beliefs should not affect their careers; no matter what side of the fence their on!

  • How would you all feel if Chick-Fil-A fired their CEO because he supported gay marriage?

  • He wasn't threatening Mozilla's reputation in any way. He made a small donation a few years ago and to tell the truth, no one should have cared, but the liberal thought police said that obviously since he supported traditional marriage he was a bad person and pressured the company someone to fire him for his BELIEFS. How messed up is our country that the leaders of large companies lose their jobs because their beliefs don't match up with what's popular?

  • I'm changing my mind due to convincing arguments from TN05 and Miles (Rarely him). We have to be honest about this. A company can fire someone for seriously ruining a companies rep, but it appears that this is little more then reverse discrimination, but based on political views. Did Mozzila's image boost, certainly, but the reasons for such are morally grey.

  • I am not a bigot for bogots

Bettabreeder, you hate homosexuals, so why are you voting yes?

This poll is wildly inaccurate. Brendan was not fired, he resigned, and he didn't give a reason related to Prop 8 for his resignation.

Resigned = Forced to resign = fired. I guess that's the current train of thought.

Why is this such a big deal anyways? People get fired all the times in my state because they are found to be gay (We are putting it on the ballot though)

Everyone has the right to think and believe what they want to think and believe. If we're going to be persecuted & prosecuted and held accountable for our thoughts & beliefs, where will it end? I'm personally not against gay marriage. Period. Do I think it's "right"? No, I don't. But I'm not AGAINST it. Let the gays/lesbians do what they want to do. My THOUGHTS on it, are that it's not natural. Does that make me a bigot? I'd never say it in public. I THINK it, I don't SAY it. There's a big difference. I know a lot of people that are racist as hell, behind closed doors. In public, they're very tolerant and all inclusive. Should they be persecuted for their BELIEFS? This is a slippery-slope. When you start trying to control and persecute people for their internal feelings about a topic/subject, you start getting into the realm of what is and isn't free-thought, forget about free SPEECH. Every time I see a horrible driver that's Chinese, and I say to myself, "Fvcking stupid a$$ Chinese driver that just climbed out of the rice-paddy, got off the ox-cart, and jumped in a car, and can't drive worth a $hit", should I get fired for thinking it, because it's a racist bigoted thing to THINK?!? Where does it end? I'm LMNO, and I'm an admitted racist bigot (I guess it what you people want me to say)...

I'm against it and will always be against gay marriage. Civil unions fine.. Gay marriage no.
