Mozilla CEO resists calls to resign amid furor over anti-gay marriage donation

Facing mounting criticism over his donation to an anti-gay marriage proposition in California in 2008, Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich said today he will continue to serve in the role unless Mozillas board asks him to step aside. In an interview with CNET, Eich declined to discuss his personal beliefs, but said he should not be disqualified from his job for his personal beliefs. Eich, a co-founder of Mozilla who also invented JavaScript, has drawn calls for his resignation as CEO amid outrage over the revelation that he donated $1,000 to Proposition 8, the California ballot measure that banned same-sex marriage in the state. 8 was ruled unconstitutional in 2012.)  In a blog post last week, Eich expressed sorrow at having caused pain but stopped short of saying his beliefs on gay marriage have changed.
