Two things, CL:

1. The following is meant as skepticism, not as disrespect to you. Please don’t take it as the latter.

2. From your post:

These are the actual facts on Brendan Eich’s resignation as CEO, directly from Mozilla. This is Mozilla’s account of Brendan Eich’s departure.

Fify…but I acknowledge that Mozilla’s version of the incident is worth knowing.

I find Andrew Sullivan’s take on this fascinating. It’s so him. If his ‘argument’ is to be take at face value, he’d hit the roof just as hard if this had all been over a white supremacist. Either that, or he is totally clueless about the rhetoric, hatred and dehumanizing of gay people that the Prop 8 campaign indulged in. Which is just as likely - he does tend to see things from an amazingly uninformed position sometimes - a position he stakes out for himself based on choosing to ignore the realities that debunk his fundamental hatred of liberals - he needs to keep that stance intact. regardless of the fact that he’s beginning to look more and more like the dishonest rage machine he was whilst cheer-leading the invasion of Iraq. He really is nothing more than a gay version of Bill O’Reilly. It’s really quite humorous how he cherry-picks his examples of why he hate most gay people and liberals. Who’re of course all “far left”. Because he can’t call us commies or fifth columnists anymore.

No offense & point taken. I edited it to reflect that they were the facts according to Mozilla.

re: #1 jvic

But no actual refutations? They look like facts to me.

Andrew, a staunch supporter of the Bush Administration (when it was beneficial to do so) simply lacks any credibility to comment or criticize others in relation to morality in general (Iraq) and gay issues (he did support the fiercely anti-gay Bush Administration)
