I do agree the firing was stupid. I am pro gay marriage. He was clearly competent to run the co. I couldn't give a fig if he was pro or con gay marriage as the mission of Mozilla is as an internet software provider and nothing to do with marriage. The issue is then half the board resigned at his hire, They were threatened with boycotts by liberal groups or liberal thinking people. Frankly this sounds like a purely corporate functional and economic decision on Mozilla's part from pressure brought to bear on the co. Boycotts and pressure from both the left and the right are nothing new and have worked in both directions. So though maybe not a smart decision from a corporate position this makes perfect sense for Mozilla,.
Pretty accurate comment. Basically arithmetic, reading, writing will remain the same whether they are taught on a chalk board or a computer.No matter the curriculum used. We need to add technical, competency science, technology(computers, electronics, etc) as this is the world today. Some testing is reasonable but is should not be determinate. Not all people are meant to be brain surgeons or nuclear physicists. As far as I am aware plumbers, electricians etc make a very good living and are needed as well. The test should be a measuring tool not the determinate of success. I also suspect common core will change to something else in a few years when textbook cos need to make the next round of money.
Global warming is a scientific theory or not depending on your belief. There person who quoted none or all had it right. Either all organizations sponsored by and having an official religious designation (ie you legally call yourself a church or part of one) are all allowed after normal hours or not at all. There is no discrimination in that case. All religious organizations are treated the same.
