this is tolerance?
You say you're dedicated to tolerance and equality and openness... If that's the case, then why can't your CEO think differently than you do? Interestingly, your president was also against gay marriage back in 2008, but I don't see any of you looking to get *him* removed from office these days. Your position is so illogical as to be absurd. You're tolerant, but only of people who think like you do. That's not tolerance.

Hello, we welcome contributions from everyone regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views. Mozilla supports equality for all. We have employees with a wide diversity of views.
Our culture of openness extends to encouraging staff and community to share their beliefs and opinions in public. This is meant to distinguish Mozilla from most organizations and hold us to a higher standard. We absolutely believe both in equality and freedom of speech. Sometimes standing for both at the same time can be hard.
A CEO needs to be able to lead, and under the circumstances in the last week with the scrutiny over this issue and all the mischaracterization of him as a person and the Mozilla community, Brendan made a personal choice to step down from the role - also in order to avert further damage to mozilla and its mission to advance the open web.
The last days have been hard for all of us and it's a shame it has come to this, but we must put our focus back on protecting the Web, and we are doing so in a way that I hope will make you proud to support Mozilla again in the future. I wish you all the best with whichever browser you choose to use in the meantime.
