Transcript for 'This Week': Mozilla Controversy
gay marriage. Brandon Eich who ran mozilla firefox stepped down after the uproar over a $1,000 donation in 2008 to a group supporting an anti-gay marriage campaign. So we saw Andrew Sullivan, influential blogger, one of the earliest advocates of gay marriage calling it mccarthyism. Will he now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not stocks? If this is the gay rights movement today, then count me out. Interesting to me, Andrew Sullivan sounded a little bit like you on this. I thought that his entire article was strong. People need to recognize, if you're a young faculty member, and if you're a young member of a news department and you have the wrong views, meaning conservative, you have no career.
