   I assume you meant not to use non-free software, in which case you need
   to take a look at Anyway, if you believe writing non-free
   software is wrong, then using it perpetuates the behavior of writing
   non-free software.

It seems to me that the sentence is:

   ...people who firmly reject non-free software do so partly because
   they disagree with the Free Software movement's "moral disapproval"

Is that what was meant?
