Some Gay Activists Fear Same-sex Supporters Are Becoming Intolerant

The resignation of a Silicon Valley executive who opposed gay marriage and refused to recant has sparked an online fight among gays about whether proponents of same-sex marriage are now going too far in trying to marginalize their opponents socially and economically.

The announcement by popular Web browser Mozilla Firefox that co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich was stepping down after two weeks on the job for a 2008 contribution has sparked furious debate over civil rights, privacy and corporate responsibility.

A leading gay blogger has accused the movement of displaying the same intolerance activists accuse their opponents of practicing, while the website published a satirical list of other California companies that should be purged of gay-marriage skeptics, which presumably include the 52 percent of Californians who voted for Proposition 8 in 2008.

Slate and Salon both far left publications have weighed in on this Mozilla thing and are pretty much saying that these gays are quickly wearing out their welcome.
I say don't give your hard earned money to a gay person in business, until they start policing their own and telling them to pipe down. Of course take their money since discrimination isn't allowed but don't give them any of yours until they wise up.

The hypocrisy here is that Gays are the ones who have become intolerant...time for the push back !
