...many conservatives are hellbent on claiming that LGBT groups like GLAAD and the Human Rights Campaign forced Mozilla to fire their CEO, that these same groups were calling for boycotts, etc. Glenn Beck even said that LGBT groups are becoming terrorists.

Not a surprise to see NOM boycotting, since they have active (and hilariously failed) boycotts going against Starbucks and General Mills, simply because those companies stood with their LGBT customers. Why not add another for the same reason?
