Re "Gay-marriage view is tech CEO's downfall" (Page A1, April 4): It's alarming how people, who outraged about civil rights violations, totally disregard, deny, and harm others who disagree with their perspectives, opinions, and beliefs. Such organized vicious attacks represent intolerance of opposing ideas and ideals. It's total disregard for freedom and human Rights. Such actions prevailed in Germany in the 1930 and '40. Such intolerance occurred with removal of Brenden Eich as the CEO at Mozilla. When is it OK to fire people for how they vote? Fascism exists when extremists rule as when Eich was pushed out the door. The worst he did was exercise personal freedoms of speech, thought, belief , and voting. Fired as Mozilla's CEO for voting for Proposition 8 is a violation of the Constitution and human rights.
