58 gay conservatives and I guess, allies, signed on a public statement condemning the "attack" on Mozilla's CEO Brendan Eich. Their post is called "Freedom To Marry, Freedom To Dissent: Why We Must Have Both."

The test of our commitment to liberal principles is not our eagerness to hear ideas we share, but our willingness to consider seriously those we oppose.
