Mozilla Ex-CEO Brendan Eich is Not The Gay Fredo Corleone
The problem is that Proposition 8 was not an example of "dissent," it was an attempt to dictate. The status quo in California did not force Brendan Eich to get gay married, or to change his beliefs about marriage, or have any effect on him at all. He was, and is, free to disagree with same-sex marriages all he wants. Brendan Eich decided to fund an effort to take away other people's rights, to dissolve other people's marriages. Brendan Eich is the bully.
