CEO resigns following outrage over support for marriage initiative
April 04, 2014
The initiative passed by a 52%-48% margin but was declared unconstitutional by a federal court in 2010.
On March 24, Eich, who had contributed $1,000 to support the initiative, became CEO of the company he helped found. Eich’s appointment led to calls to boycott the company’s Firefox browser. Upon resigning, Eich said that “under the present circumstances, I cannot be an effective leader,” according to an Associated Press report.

And exactly how long will Gov Cuomo be permitted to receive Holy Communion on Sundays but, for the rest of the week, pushing abortion and same sex marriage? Spineless leadership.

Christians will be tested to see if they really believe in "turning the other cheek". That said, they must not be silent on the meaning of "real" marriage (as instituted by God) vs. forms of marriage that do not follow the guidance of a loving God.

I would also include St. Charles Lwanga in their company of martyrs and ask that they pray for us.

2 saints of the Church were decapitated for their position on sex/marriage. Both decapitations were harbingers of turning points in history--the former (the Baptist) signaled the turning point from hedonism to the spirit, the latter (More) signaled a turning point away from the spirit to the flesh. Today, the decapitations are bloodless (for now) but seem to signal the culmination of the last turning point. It's time to hang-on and pray for courage. The martyr is the ultimate evangelizer.

Here we have the results of effective agit-prop by the Sodomic Fascist Front. If we don't begin to fight fire with fire, the Front will roll over our positions every time.
