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.”
