You and the writer whose work you have cited are quite confused.
Mr. Eich is not suing the government on behalf of Mozilla to protect Mozilla's right to oppose gay marriage.
Mr. Eich stepped down (most likely after being pressured by the board of directors) because his private actions, once they became public contemporaneous with his appointment as CEO, threatened the bottom line of the company he had worked at for years.
Hobby Lobby's leadership is in snyc with the purposes advanced by the lawsuit it filed, and sees it as benefiting its bottom line.
Mozilla's is not in snyc with the effects of Mr. Eich's donation to prop 8 on its bottom line.
What is popular with the 40-70 year old craft crowd might not be so popular with techies surfing the net.
Its always fun when you cannot discern subtle (and not so subtle) differences that really do matter. And its really fun when you display your hatred of the free market.
What are you...a flippin commie?
Homosexuals are sick, I really believe that. Don't want them around my family. Oh, wait a minute, I don't have a family, they hate me....

<quoted text>The Religious Freedom Restoration Act. One would think it would be familiar to a "lawyer."
Did you know that the title of the suit is "Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc."? So, just who is suing whom?
And why do you people always leave this fact out?
"The Green family has no moral objection to the use of 16 of 20 preventive contraceptives required in the mandate and will continue its longstanding practice of covering these preventive contraceptives for its employees."
Hobby Lobby is privately held. Just like this:
(CNN)-- Conestoga Wood Specialties was founded a half-century ago in a Pennsylvania garage. The Hahn family's commitment to quality is driven in large part by their Christian faith, which in turn may soon threaten the company's very existence.
That financial and constitutional dynamic is now before the U.S. Supreme Court, in a high-stakes encore to the health care reform law known as Obamacare. The justices will hear oral arguments Tuesday in a dispute involving contraception coverage and religious liberty.
The court will review provisions in the Affordable Care Act requiring for-profit employers of a certain size to offer insurance benefits for birth control and other reproductive health services without a co-pay. At issue is whether certain companies can refuse to do so on the sincere claim it would violate their owners' long-established personal beliefs.
"Our religion is Mennonite; that is our faith. Our company was founded on that religion as well," said Conestoga's President Anthony Hahn, son of the privately held company's co-founder. "We feel the government has gone too far in too many instances. It's been troubling to us as a family."

Are you aware that Hobby Lobby's insurance policies were covering contraception for years prior to the ACA's implementation, and the only reason Hobby Lobby realized it was as a result of reviewing their policies after the law went into effect?
Dunno about that but if true it clearly demonstrates the attitude of government force vs. personal choice. And that's what it's all about. Lawyer they say, huh?
