With Eich in place, Mozilla can't help but stink of Prop 8.
With his support, a civil right was removed from a minority. Does he not get how odious, mean and stupid that was? I'm dumping Firefox for Chrome. Goodbye.

Hi James, Mozilla is a global community of paid and unpaid contributors supporting the open web with a diversity of views and opinions. Hopefully you reconsider your generalization that our community "stinks" of anything.
Both Mitchell and Brendan have both posted on the position of diversity in the workplace today.
and you can find more information on Participation in diversity here:

A note that he was not forced to step down by the board as it was his choice in doing so to help Mozilla.
Discussion about Brendan Eich, who recently resigned as Mozilla CEO, is actually off-topic for the Mozilla support forum. See Forum rules and guidelines:
* Posts in the Mozilla support forum must be either questions about the use of Firefox, Firefox for Android, Firefox OS, Thunderbird, Webmaker or answers to those questions. Users who post about things other than Mozilla support will be directed to an alternative discussion place (ex: mozillaZine) if appropriate.
The mozilla.governance forum would be a better place for any further discussion about this topic. The Google Groups link is https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/mozilla.governance
