Mozilla forces Brendan Eich Out

After it had come to light that newly appointed CEO Brendan Eich had donated a sum of money to a cause that was anti-gay marriage, the outcry from Silicon Valley to have him sacked has been enormous.  Of course, all this has to do with "equality" and "inclusiveness" and the most telling thing about the utter hypocrisy of the whole "inclusive" and "equality" language is found right in the post where Mozilla claims how inclusive it actually is.  The sad part is that it's a complete lie:
Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness. We welcome contributions from everyone regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views. Mozilla supports equality for all.
They've already said, loud and clear, that people with certain "religious views" are unwelcome in their company.  So no, Mozilla is not the gold standard of "diversity and inclusiveness" they claim to be.  Just the opposite, in fact.

I would suggest finding a new web browser if you use Firefox regularly, but Mozilla really just did what World Vision did a number of weeks ago.

"But World Vision is a Christian organization reflecting Christian morals", you may say.

And Firefox is a secular company reflecting secular 'morals', I don't see much difference.
