News that, in 2008, former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich donated $1,000 to the effort to pass California’s Proposition 8 in support of traditional marriage has culminated in Eich being forced to resign as head of the company. Some are even claiming that Eich’s position on the issue means he’s not fit to run a large organization:
Oh my, how quickly they forget:
Where was that criticism when the mainstream media was carrying Obama on their shoulders on his way to the White House in 2008?
Can we retroactively apply the same “rules” the Left is demanding? Where was this kind of outrage a mere few years ago? Those are among the questions being asked:
President Obama didn’t change his position on the issue of gay marriage until the spring of 2012, but we don’t recall the Left insisting that disqualified him from the presidency.
Holding a pro traditional marriage opinion while running a tech company though is apparently a total disqualifier.
