MOZILLA, THE COMPANY, the company that operates the web browser Firefox, experienced its highest level of negative customer feedback the day after its embattled co-founder Brendan Eich resigned as CEO after gay rights activists objected to his appointment.
On Thursday, Mozilla forced Eich to resign just two weeks after hiring him. At issue was a $1,000 donation Eich gave in 2008 in support of California’s Proposition 8, a successful ballot initiative which banned gay marriage.
The decision to remove the man who invented the web scripting language JavaScipt did not sit well with many customers — many of them pelted Mozilla’s website with a surge of negative feedback.
On Friday, 94 percent of the sentiments registered on the site were “sad,” while six percent were “happy.” That translates to about 7,000 negative responses, compared to nearly 500 positive responses.
“Your abject and pathetic condemnation of an individual’s right to hold and support their own view on the world is simply unbelievable,” read one user’s feedback at the Mozilla site.
Eich’s hiring last month generated …
THE MATT WALSH Blog is one of my favorite blogs to read and it has a great tagline, “Absolute Truths (and alpaca grooming tips).” He has written a great response to the recent shooting at Fort Hood.
Frankly, if it was me I would outlaw all “gun free” zone. No one would ever in their right mind would post a “Gun Free Zone” sign on their front law. You might-as-well say, “Here we are, F@#$@# shoot us!!”
Please read and think about!
‘Gun free’ military bases and dangerous psychiatric drugs: a lethal mixture
I’m sure you heard the news. Another mass shooting. Another at a military base, no less. Another at Fort Hood, specifically.
Ivan Lopez opened fire, killed three people and injured 16 before committing suicide.
Of course, the usual suspects don’t even wait for the bodies to be recovered before they start clamoring for gun control. The shooting spree ended when a woman with a gun stood up to the assailant, but that fact conveniently evades these exploitative clowns.
The rest of us continue to grapple with the age old problem of how best to confront the basic and unavoidable reality that evil people will do evil things, while these imbecilic loudmouths cowardly glaze over the complexities of the issue, in favor of infusing moral significance into an inanimate object — an inanimate object that is quite often the only thing that will stop those evil people once they’ve begun to carry out that evil thing.
Same old story. We’ve had this debate a thousand times. Tragically, we’ll have it a thousand more times.
And, because I often take it upon myself to argue with fools, I can’t help but jump into the fray here.
In light of this shooting, and every other, and even regardless of any particular incident, we all need to . . .
Let me see if I got this straight, because I feel like I am in an alternate universe!
Our government is doing everything it can to stamp out Christianity in our military? In fact, thanks to the Obama administration our military is growing more hostile to Christian servicemen (and women), including Christian chaplains [ Read HERE ], and now they allowing a “Muslim Brotherhood affiliate supply our military with CHAPLAINS!
NOW, I don’t think Baptists, Catholics, Presbyterians, or other Christian denominations attack the United States on 9/11!
I agree with the blog Article below that “allowing an organization that is not only a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate–but also a onetime financer of Hamas to supply our military with chaplains” deserves a big–WT*!
A Chilling Reality: the Islamization of Our Military
Manifestly the Pentagon never received the memo that Islam is at war with Western Civilization. Or, that Islam is a brutally misogynistic ideology bent on the wholesale murder of women who dare show a little ankle.
Oh, and did I forget to mention that its founder, Mohammed–had an unquenchable penchant for little girls?
In short: Islam is evil.
With that established–allow me to enlighten you as to what insanity our . . .

I WANT MY readers clear that I am a deacon in a Presbyterian church. However, I am NOT a member in the PCUSA. My membership is with the PCA (Presbyterian Church in America), and we are Presbyterian body that does embrace our historic Reformation beliefs and fully affirm our historic confessions (like our Westminster Confession of Faith).
Many of us in confessional Presbyterian denominations consider PCUSA not a true Christian denomination anymore, and the PCUSA is losing membership FAST because they have embraced theological liberalism, which is distinct from political liberalism, (but not by much).
Below is an article of an example of those who are leaving this denomination, and sadly many other are wanting to follow:
(RNS) Members of one of the largest congregations in the Presbyterian Church (USA) have voted to leave the denomination, despite facing an $8.89 million cost for leaving.
Menlo Park Presbyterian is based in the San Francisco Bay area and led by well-known author and pastor John Ortberg. It is the ninth-largest PCUSA church, with about 4,000 members, including former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
The motion to leave the PCUSA was approved by 93 percent of the church’s members who voted, with 2,024 ballots in favor of the motion and 158 ballots opposed, according to . . .
ALL I HAVE to say to this excellent blog entry is, “AMEN!”
Alright, let’s make this simple.
The simple answers are often the best. But there’s a problem with simplicity: it doesn’t give you room to grant a thousand exemptions, exceptions, and caveats to satisfy every lobby, satiate every interest group, heal every hurt feeling, and grease every squeaky wheel.
Simple is fair, simple is just, simple is consistent, but fewer and fewer people are interested in what is fair and just and consistent. That’s why our laws are so long and confusing and convoluted these days (see: Obamacare). Legislation is not written for the sake of justice; it’s written for the sake of pay-offs and power grabs.
Yesterday I wrote about the (now vetoed) Arizona religious freedom bill. I said that religious business owners — be they bakers or photographers or anything else — shouldn’t be forced to participate in gay weddings. They should have the right to choose who they provide services to, and how they provide those services.
Despite the expected influx of some of the . . .
THIS IS AN issue that really gets under my skin (below). It is bad enough that the military has been watered-down with political correctness, and being feminized to the point that they becoming ineffective because of misguided missions, BUT now it looks like Christian service men (and women) are being persecuted in a place where there should religious liberty.
The next step I fear is that we Christians will some day will have to fear military, because I see a day coming that our military will be a tool of a future tyrannical United State government that will persecute Christian citizens.

Obama ‘Strongly Objects’ to Religious Liberty Amendment
By Todd Starnes , CP Op-Ed Contributor
June 14, 2013|11:13 am
The Obama Administration “strongly objects” to a proposed amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that would have protected the religious rights of soldiers – including evangelical Christian service members who are facing growing hostility towards their religion.
The amendment was authored by Rep. John Fleming, (R-La). It would have “required the Armed Forces to accommodate ‘actions and speech’ reflecting the conscience, moral, principles or religious beliefs of the member.”
The Obama Administration said the amendment would have a “significant adverse effect on good order, discipline, morale, and mission accomplishment.”
“With its statement, the White House is now endorsing military reprimands of members who . .

DEAR READERS OF my blog. Tomorrow’s service at the Church that I attend will not only be hard on me, but hard on our entire congregation. It will be hard, as many of you know, because we loss our beloved pastor, John Thomas Appleton (Malden, WV) on a fire call last Monday. Tomorrow will be the first Sunday Service without him in our pulpit.
Your prays are very appreciated.

ACCORDING TO BREITBART.COM, “West Virginia Senator Manchin Shocked to Learn Obama Not a Friend of Coal Industry.”
You can’t be serious? Or maybe he is that stupid! If you are that stupid then you are in the dark on an issue that most of know already. It is not like Obama’s war on coal was a war that he kept a secret.
It’s clear now that the President has declared war on coal. http://t.co/xoiC13H27K
— Senator Joe Manchin (@Sen_JoeManchin) June 25, 2013
Pres. Obama’s proposal will have disastrous consequences for not only the coal industry, but also American jobs and the economy.
— Senator Joe Manchin (@Sen_JoeManchin) June 25, 2013
“Congress thus far hasn’t given Obama the “cap and trade” bill he wants, so he is going to do an end-run around Congress and order the EPA to hit electricity-producing coal plants with expensive new regulations to limit the output of greenhouse gases.
This is Manchin’s attempt to impress the voters back home in West Virginia coal country. He’s acting surprised, but Obama has literally said that he is looking for energy prices to skyrocket for years:
For his shocked – SHOCKED! – act today, I hereby give West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin this week’s “Captain Louis Renault’ Award! Well done, Joe!”
As a member of Kanawha Salines Presbyterian Church I am deeply saddened by the loss of our beloved pastor, Reverend John Appleton, and I appreciate your prayers during this difficult time for my church family.
Pastor Appleton has served the Malden community as a volunteer firefighter and as pastor of our church for 7 years. To the firefighters of this community, he was a brother and Chaplin. To our church (and myself), he will always remembered as pastor. A pastor who followed Christ’s command, “feed my sheep” (John 21:17).
As heartbroken as we are, we as a congregation will strive to continue to do as Reverend Appleton has taught us by placing our hope in the Gospel of Lord, Jesus Christ.
