Mozilla CEO Expresses "Sorrow" About Proposition 8 Controversy, Makes No Mention Of Changing Position On Marriage

"I am deeply honored and humbled by the CEO role. I’m also grateful for the messages of support. At the same time, I know there are concerns about my commitment to fostering equality and welcome for LGBT individuals at Mozilla. I hope to lay those concerns to rest, first by making a set of commitments to you. More important, I want to lay them to rest by actions and results. A number of Mozillians, including LGBT individuals and allies, have stepped forward to offer guidance and assistance in this. I cannot thank you enough, and I ask for your ongoing help to make Mozilla a place of equality and welcome for all. [snip] I know some will be skeptical about this, and that words alone will not change anything. I can only ask for your support to have the time to 'show, not tell'; and in the meantime express my sorrow at having caused pain." - Recently named Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, in a blog post that does not mention his 2008 donation to the Proposition 8 campaign or if he now supports same-sex marriage.
