It seems that most Liberal/Progressives calling for tolerance and diversity are the least likely to be tolerant of thoughts and ideas that are contrary to their own. Andrew Sullivan, a gay activist and author has come out against the gay activists who called for the forced resignation of former Mozilla CEO, Brendan Eich simply because Eich contributed to the campain for California Proposition 8 for the preservation of traditional marriage between one man and one woman. The “Gay Mafia” as they are often called appear to have no tolerance for anyone who disagrees with them. The strange thing is that both President Obama and Hillary Clinton, until just recently, have professed support for traditional marriage. Known outspoken Liberal/Progressives tend to get a pass somehow from the “Gay Mafia”.

From Breitbart.com by Warner Todd Huston:

Gay columnist Andrew Sullivan is getting pummeled by fans for standing against the actions of gay activists who forced Mozilla to dump its new CEO, Brendan Eich. Sullivan is undaunted, however, saying that gay activists are creating a civil rights movement built on hate – not one advocating toleration.
In an April 6 blog post, Sullivan delved even deeper into the “illiberal” intolerance he saw from gay activists over the Mozilla/Eich incident.

Even as Sullivan reiterated that he thinks the right has engaged in this sort of fascist-like attack on freedom and a civil society, he is even more insistent that his compatriots in the gay rights movement have devolved into the same sort of hate. The attack on Eich, Sullivan feels, is a prime example.

Sullivan insists that too many in the gay community and those that support them are avoiding the “ugly truth” of what really happened to the CEO.

“Brendan Eich was regarded as someone whose political beliefs and activities rendered him unsuitable for his job,” Sullivan said. He then noted that, if this had happened in similar circumstances, it would actually be illegal, breaking California’s workplace employment laws that prevent employers from firing people based on their political ideology.

The Daily Dish blogger did understand that, because Eich was upper management, the law didn’t exactly apply to his situation. But Sullivan did feel that Eich’s ouster violated the spirit of that law.

Sullivan also made a very important and prescient point on a “civil society.”

“The ability to work alongside or for people with whom we have a deep political disagreement is not a minor issue in a liberal society,” Sullivan wrote. “It is a core foundation of toleration. We either develop the ability to tolerate those with whom we deeply disagree, or liberal society is basically impossible. Civil conversation becomes culture war; arguments and reason cede to emotion and anger.”

Well worth a click to read the rest.
