Should Christians boycott Mozilla over firing of CEO?

I really think this is a sad reflection of todays world,

Brendan Eich resigns as Mozilla CEO after anti-gay flapÂ[bless and do not curse] - NY Daily News

What do u guys think and should a boycott against Mozilla (Firefox/Thunderbird mainly) take place?

Sadly it is Christian groups that seem to be behind the anti-gay movement.

Glad you are not one of them.

In my opinion I dont think a boycott will have any effect.

If a reasonable case could be made to show how my use of the browser is making them any money, then it would be a question worth considering. I don't donate to them as it is.

Do you use Google to search for stuff when using Firefox?

If so then most of their money comes from Google which is derived from adverts and hence sales made from them so perhaps you are indirectly funding the Mozilla project.

Not sure if you have the wrong end of the argument here but the workplace is rapidly becoming pro-gay where you can't speak out against it and voice free speech which is as bad or if not worse than the anti-gay movement which has opposed gays so far.

Not sure what I'm not suppose to be but I am for true freedom and fair play. Sadly this is lacking from Mozilla on this occasion.

It's ridiculous, all these people championing 'diversity' clearly can't handle too much of it. I'd only boycott a company if it was shown that it's direct actions were discriminatory or harmful in some way.

I wouldn't demand that my taxi driver stop immediately to let me out if it transpired that he voted for the National front, it hardly makes him a bad or unsafe taxi driver.

Don't you think that "firing" a CEO for his personal beliefs isn't discriminatory?

I guess it opens the door to fire people if they have views on anti-abortion or other tricky social issues, even religion. Where do you draw the line?

Well of course he succumbed to pressure placed on him and stepped down. It is utterly hypocritical of those who champion diversity to discriminate against those who have diverse views from their own. As it is I don't use Mozilla.

Of course it does, as I said it's incredible how intolerant people are in the name of the toleration.

Excellent question, Eph. I'm glad you brought this up.

I don't know about boycotts as an orchestrated political force, but I uninstalled FF this morning along with my personalizations. It's such a little thing, but it's what I can do. I don't need that browser staring me in the face, telling me that I lack even the moral courage to use other browsers when I have the choice. If there were no other choices, that would be a different matter.

Yes, I believe Firefox should be boycotted, they forced him out over political speech. This is why campaign donor lists should not be for public consumption, because people get targetted for exercising their 1st amendment rights.
