From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

OkCupid boycotts Firefox after ‘homophobic’ CEO appointment

Wednesday 2nd April 2014

Brendan Eich donated money to anti-gay rights group Proposition 8

A popular dating website began yesterday a boycott to a homophobic internet browser.

Free online dating group OkCupid has launched a boycotting campaign against Mozilla Firefox after the internet browser company appointed anti-gay rights supporter Brendan Eich as its new CEO.

Users attempting to access the website through Firefox were met with a landing page requesting they opt for another browser.

“If individuals like Mr. Eich had their way, then roughly 8 per cent of the relationships we’ve worked so hard to bring about would be illegal,” read the statement.

Mr Eich openly donated $1,000 (£600) to the Proposition 8 campaign, which put forward the view that “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”

OkCupid — which had over 10 million unique hits only last month — said its very nature was “creating love.”

To those wanting to undermine love, they wish “nothing but failure.”

Mozilla has released a statement denying homophobia but omitting its CEO’s political agenda.

  1. Mr Eich’s views are unacceptable in these days of equality. If he chooses to openly fund the Proposition 8 movement then it should come as no surprise to Mozilla that Homosexuals and those that support gay rights will react against the company which makes him CEO.
