To The Editor:
Last week – following a firestorm of protest from gay activists – Mozilla, the tech company known for its internet browser Firefox, compelled its new CEO to step down simply because he, as a private citizen, contributed $1,000 to California’s pro-marriage Proposition 8 campaign…six years ago. (At the same time in 2008, President Obama came out as exclusively pro-traditional family–another of his lies! Why have there been no reprisals against him?)
According to pro-gay advocates, it’s theoretically acceptable for companies like Mozilla (or Mom and Pop bakeries) to hire Christians (or be Christian) as long as they are never permitted to assume leadership roles, never allowed to believe what they want to believe or never allowed to say what they want to say. The same people who claim to support equal treatment for everyone want to deny access to employment opportunities based on personal convictions – in effect a new “glass ceiling” for a faith-driven worldview.
As a pro-traditional family person, I would like to ask Mozilla to clarify what their policy is toward faith-driven employees, asking them to respond to three specific questions: 1) Will faith-driven employees be discriminated against and forced into the closet for their personal views on marriage? 2)Is there a “pro gay marriage” litmus test for working at Mozilla? 3) Will the next CEO be required to openly express support for gay marriage as a condition for being hired?
While we wait to hear back, let’s make sure they HEAR from YOU: Chairman of Mozilla, 2 Harrison Street Suite 175, San Francisco, CA 94105.
