e-Harmony has been sued to force it to provide same-sex matchups. It has capitulated under duress of potentially massive penalties.
Never mind that it was started in order to provide long-lasting relationships based on Christian values – heterosexual only, for the purposes of marriage (not casual flings). See Bible Passages That Oppose Homosexuality – Including the Words of Jesus and God Himself for a complete explanation of the Biblical basis for this stance.
So, in the interest of fairness…
I would like to request all heterosexuals living in the United States to FILE NUMEROUS AND EXORBITANT LAWSUITS against homosexual-only dating services and websites, until said services and websites add in full services for heterosexuals seeking opposite-gender-only matchups and pay damages to the aggrieved straights.
Gateway Pundit is wondering if they’ll be taking on SingleMuslim.com next. Yeah, right! History shows that rage-beholden, screaming, righteous-fury liberals only act brave when attacking Christians – you know, the religion of not filing ACLU lawsuits and releasing death threats against insulters.
Coming soon to EHarmony — Adam and Steve.
The Pasadena-based dating website, heavily promoted by Christian evangelical leaders when it was founded, has agreed in a civil rights settlement to give up its heterosexuals-only policy and offer same-sex matches.
EHarmony was started by psychologist Eric McKinley, who is known for his mild-mannered television and radio advertisements. It must not only implement the new policy by March 31 but also give the first 10,000 same-sex registrants a free six-month subscription.
“That was one of the things I asked for,” said Eric McKinley, 46, who complained to New Jersey’s Division on Civil Rights after being turned down for a subscription in 2005.
The company said that Warren was not giving interviews on the settlement. But attorney Theodore Olson, who issued a statement on the company’s behalf, made clear that it did not agree to offer gay matches willingly. “Even though we believed that the complaint resulted from an unfair characterization of our business,” Olson said, “we ultimately decided it was best to settle this case with the attorney general since litigation outcomes can be unpredictable.”
The settlement, which did not find that EHarmony broke any laws, calls for the company to either offer the gay matches on its current venue or create a new site for them. EHarmony has opted to create a site called Compatiblepartners.net.
Warren had said in past interviews that he didn’t want to feature same-sex services on EHarmony — which matches people based on long questionnaires concerning personality traits, relationship history and interests — because he felt he didn’t know enough about gay relationships.
(Hey Kossies, when are you going to practise EQUALITY and FAIRNESS and give an equal number of right-wing bloggers an equal quota of articles on your site?)
