  • Gaystapo out on the prowl again

    As of Monday, March 31, people who attempt to access OKCupid using the browser are met with the following message:



    Eich, who was announced as Mozilla’s new CEO last week after being involved with the company since its inception in 1998, has been a flashpoint for controversy due to a $1,000 donation he made to the campaign in support of California’s Proposition 8, a voter-backed initiative in 2008 that banned same sex marriage in the state. Half of the nonprofit’s three-person board of directors resigned en masse around the time the announcement was made; however, a Mozilla spokesperson insisted to the Verge that the wave of resignations were unrelated to Eich’s selection or his personal politics.
    This is one of the many reasons "leave me alone" conservatardism and libertardianism doesn't work. Always playing defense means you will eventually lose.
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    If I were Eich, I would put in a filter in Firefox that redirects any OKCupid request to an endless nyan cat loop.

        Supporting a law that treats same-sex couples like second-class citizens: okay!

        Raising awareness of such support and encouraging a voluntary boycott: Nazi behavior!

        It reminds me of Adolf Hitler and his wrist-band awareness campaigns.

            Funny Sea, it seems that it only those that support traditional marriage that are being attacked, like in the OP. And a homosexual has the exact same right as I do - to marry someone of the opposite sex.

              the various issues surrounding consent are powerful enough, I think, to mean that the next snag on the slippery slope will be number of partners rather than the age of the partners, especially given the general scorn for those who marry too early.

              The worship of the orgasm, if taken to its ultimate conclusion, would end in the endorsement of pedophilia or child pornography, etc, but I don't think the gravitational pull of the orgasm is as strong as other forces in our society and legal system.
              Don't call it a comeback. It's a riposte.

                  Argument from disgust? Not necessarily compelling. If the argument from the other side is that YOU MUST APPROVE OF MY ORGASM, then this would be a stronger point, but if you watch the rhetoric, it's not about approving of a sexual relationship, but of a "sharing of life". It's so vapid it makes me want to barf, but I don't think that's the same sort of argument from disgust

                    How does one treat a pair of citizens as a single citizen?

                      Once again, "Tolerance" to liberals means only if you agree with them, and they can be as intolerant of YOU as they wish because they are progressive and loving and you are a hateful bigot so they are justified in anything they say against you.

                        Given their general suicide rate, immaturity, propensity to bully other citizens, willingness to spread deadly diseases among themselves and others, ingratitude, and all-around insufferability, treating them as merely 'second class citizens' seems a bit too lenient.

                        I was thinking closer to 'wards of the state,' especially since most seem to depend upon the state already for almost all their personal affirmation.

                          Progressivism is fueled by rabid, insane egalitarianism. There's nothing stopping them from declaring that young teens and children are equal to adults and should have the same rights. Including the right to consent to sex. That it "seems" unlikely is a worthless argument no sane Christian should take for granted considering gay marriage also seemed unlikely 10-20 years ago.
