KURTZ: Is 'intimidation' to blame for ouster of Mozilla chief over gay marriage?

The forced resignation of Mozillas CEO over his views on gay marriage has sparked a passionate debate that doesnt always break down along the lines you would expect.

The media framing of the saga of Brendan Eich has been that a bigot got what he deserved (that is, when it was covered; the network evening newscasts couldnt find time for the Mozilla story last week). But even some of those who deeply believe in same-sex marriage say its a case study in intolerance.

Eich was pushed out of the company that makes the Firefox browser after a week in the top job because he contributed $1,000 to Californias Prop 8 back in 2008. He has not spoken of gays in disparaging terms or made his workplace unfriendly to gays. He simply supported the position backed by Barack Obama until the spring of 2012: that marriage should be between a man and a woman.

I believe that same-sex marriage will eventually become the law of the land, given the shift in public opinion and that most younger people regard it as a non-issue. But you can believe that and also think that those who hold different views should be treated with respectjust like in the divisive debate over abortion.

Andrew Sullivan, the gay blogger who has been an advocate of same-sex marriage for decades and is married to his husband, is appalled by what happened to Eich:

Will he now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not the stocks? The whole episode disgusts me as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society. If this is the gay rights movement today hounding our opponents with a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else then count me out. If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than the anti-gay bullies who came before us.

For Sullivan to accuse some of his fellow gays and gay-rights advocates of fanaticism and intimidation is an incredibly strong statementand a tribute to his long record of independent thinking.

Americablogs John Aravosis, who got into a heated debate with Amy Holmes on yesterdays Media Buzz, takes a different viewand at one point compared opposition to same-sex marriage to the Holocaust. Holmes shot back that the Human Rights Campaign endorsed Obama when his position was also in favor of traditional marriage.

Aravosis writes: Normally, I wouldnt really care how a corporate CEO felt about marriage equality. Dont get me wrong,I care. And Id laud a CEO if she came out in support of it. But I dont think Id launch a campaign against a company simply because its boss wasnt quite there yet on marriage. I know lots of people who arent there yet though that audience is slimming down fast.

But Brendan Eich wasnt simply not there yet he played an active role in creating and enforcing discrimination against millions of gay Californians. So his offense was pretty severe, and it went arguably beyond speech he joined the ranks of anti-gay activist.

Gay Marriage Leads to Pedophilia, Says Weirdos

In a move that left even people on their side of the battlefield stunned, a group in Michigan has gone back to Rick Santorums old stomping ground: claiming that gay marriage will lead to pedophilia, bestiality and who knows what else.

The group, called the Traditionalist Youth Network, filed an amicus brief in the ongoing Michigan gay marriage case. Michigan has been a battleground in the same-sex marriage fight lately, since a judge overturned the law banning same-sex marriage. That states Attorney General, Bill Schutte, filed an appeal in the case, and a judge issued a stay halting same-sex marriage while the whole thing works its way through the courts.

A similar situation happened recently in Kentucky, but there the state Attorney General refused to appeal the case.

The amicus brief filed by TradYouth, as they call their little club, was not welcome by the Attorney General in Michigan. It read, in part:

The Culture distorters and those who espouse their ideals flagrantly reject originalism and often treat the United States Constitution like an accordion: they frequently stretch it out to invent rights that do not exist such as the right to have an abortion or the right to engage in sodomy or the right to view pornographic materials and they constrict it to not mean things that it certainly does such as by denying the plain language of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.

The reason why banning same-sex marriage is a legitimate state interest is because the State of Michigans inherent police powers authorize the government to promote the health, safety, morals, and public welfare of its people, and it is respectfully submitted that same-sex marriage is an affront to the health, safety, morals, and public welfare of the residents of the State of Michigan, which is why the Western and American legal traditions have proscribed sodomy, much less same-sex marriage, for thousands and hundreds of years, respectively.

If a state cannot be permitted to define marriage as simply as constituting one man and one woman, then our culture will be taken down a very slippery slope that will see pedophiles, polygamists, zoophiles, those in incestuous relationships, and every other sexual deviant with proclivities now known or to be invented to challenge laws that, likewise, prevent them from marrying whom or what they wish.

The brief also inexplicably quoted W.B. Yeats The Second Coming (Turning and turning the widening gyre).

The groups website expounded on their views:

When your cause is truly just and worthy, you cant calculate the odds. Whether its facing down hundreds of Marxist agitators, engaging mainstream media smear campaigners, or challenging anti-White extremist Tim Wises lies on our college campuses, were going to fight for family, folk, and faith wherever its under assault.

Expounding values and principles

I ARRIVED in Istanbul last Sunday to attend the annual conference organised by the Istanbul Network for Liberty. The Network consists of individuals from around the world who are interested in expounding the principles of a free society from within Muslim history and culture.

I am now vice-president of this global network. I still remember the early conversations about setting up this network with many others who are now the Networks Board members. The Network certainly has progressed a lot since inception.

This is our third annual conference and this time we are exploring Values and Institutions of a Free Society in Mainly Muslim Countries.

Immediately before coming to Istanbul, I spent five days in the beautiful Mediterranean city of Antalya, in the south-western part of Turkey.

It was my first time in Antalya so I took the opportunity to visit some of its tourist attractions. The older part of the city is called Kaleici. If you visit Antalya, you must visit this area.

The small and winding roads make for a good walk. You can take a short cruise around the coast from the marina. And the shops sell all sorts of souvenirs. But be careful when dealing with some of the shopkeepers. Their hard sell tactic put me off somewhat.

Another must-visit site is Mount Tahtali, which is about one hours drive from Antalya. The drive itself was very nice, crossing through several towns with beautiful views of the sea and surrounding mountains.

The highlight for me was the cable car ride to the top of Mount Tahtali. It took just 15 minutes to climb up the 2365 metres. But dont be deceived by the short time on the cable car. At more than four kilometres long, this track is actually the second longest cable car track in the world. At the top, the view is breathtaking.

The steep change from sea to mountain range creates a scene that is difficult to describe with words. You need to view it to appreciate it. I did not have enough time to explore more of Antalya.

The real reason for my trip was to attend a group discussion organised by Liberty Fund on Liberty as an Islamic Value with 13 other delegates from Palestine, Morocco, the United States, United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Tunisia, Afghanistan, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Of the many events that I have attended over the years, Liberty Fund colloquiums are among my favourites.

Algeria's legendary nationalist Bouhired to visit Gaza on March 8

Saturday, March 01, 2014

GAZA CITY Algeria’s legendary nationalist Djamila Bouhired will arrive in the Gaza Strip on March 8 to participate in celebrations of the International Women’s Day.

“Bouhired will arrive in Gaza next week, heading a delegation of 80 Arab and foreign activists to celebrate the International Women’s Day,” Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Ghazi Hamad told Anadolu Agency on Saturday.

It is not yet clear whether the delegation would cross into Gaza via Egypt’s Rafah crossing or the Erez terminal on border with Israel.

Bouhired is an outstanding Algerian resistance figure who was instrumental in resisting the French occupation of her country in the last century.

The Gaza Strip has been reeling under an eight-year Israeli blockade.

Foreign delegations visiting the strip to show solidarity with the besieged Palestinians have drastically dropped following the July 3 ouster of Egypt’s elected president Mohamed Morsi by the military, according to the Gaza Foreign Ministry.

Egyptian authorities have tightened their control over the border with Gaza, repeatedly closing the Rafah crossing, which represents Gaza’s only window to the outside world.

The Egyptian army has also launched a campaign aimed at destroying the network of tunnels linking Gaza to Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, which in recent years had been used to bring vital commodities into the besieged coastal enclave, home to nearly 2 million Palestinians.

Hamas, an ideological offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, the group which propelled Morsi to power in the 2012 elections, has controlled the Gaza Strip since 2007.

Gaza supply tunnels rebuilt by Palestinians after Egypt's army destroyed them

Palestinians rebuilding tunnels between Gaza and Egypt destroyed by military last summer Egyptian security forces moved in on the tunnel network after the ousting of Mohamed Morsi last year The tunnels have been used to smuggle everything from fuel and weapons to KFC bargain buckets into Gaza

By Daily Mail Reporter

PUBLISHED: 15:02 EST, 27 February 2014 | UPDATED: 06:25 EST, 28 February 2014

A group of Palestinian workers rebuild a tunnel linking the occupied Gaza strip with Egypt after it was destroyed by the latter’s army during a military operation.

More than 1,000 tunnels originally linked the Gaza strip with Egypt, but a majority were destroyed last summer when the Egyptian army conducted several demolition raids following the ousting of President Mohamed Morsi in July.

Egyptian security authorities say they have closed more tunnels because of militant attacks on Egyptian security forces in the lawless Sinai Peninsula – an allegation the Palestinian movement denies.
