It makes sense, given that Mozilla's purpose as an organization seems to have primarily become the promotion of the Javascript language

I beg to differ. Mozilla is making substantial contributions to Web as a whole and Firefox has never been better.

... where the metric for contributions and better is filtered through the idea that web apps should only run on Javascript

What else should they run on? Dart?

Yes. That's completely logical. Donating to prop 8 and supporting JavaScript go hand in hand! How are people not seeing this? (I honestly can't tell if your comment was a joke)
