eHarmony Launches Gay Website

Monday, November 24, 2008 5 comments

The online matchmaker website has surrendered against a nearly four year lawsuit and is launching a gay website. eHarmony was founded by a evangelical psychologist and initially targeted Christians. It still remains a popular site for Christian singles.

eHarmony announced it reached a settlement with the attorney general of New Jersey, who began looking into the company when a homosexual man filed a complaint in 2005 stating that eHarmony only matched people with the opposite sex.

"According to the settlement, eHarmony will launch a new website, CompatiblePartners.net, aimed solely at the homosexual community. As part of the settlement, eHarmony, Inc. will advertise the website in homosexual media outlets, will allow the first 10,000 users to register free and will pay $50,000 to the attorney general's office and $5,000 to the man who filed the initial complaint. It also will post a statement on the new website saying its matchmaking strategy is based on research involving heterosexual couples and not homosexual couples."


The new site will be separate from the original to prevent any heterosexual person being matched up with someone from the same gender. eHarmony does not feel they broke any discrimination law, but felt the need to settle the case.

Questions:
- Do you think eHarmony made the right decision?
- How does this effect the homosexual agenda in particular gay marriage?

    Its a shame. Neil Clark Warren is an evangelical Christian who started this company with the best of intentions. He gave in.

    Timm,

    Sometimes you have to do that in order to not completely abandon the fight. If I were him, what I would is not allocate much bandwidth and hardware to the gay site. I'd also make sure that only a handful of Christians worked on the project, and I'd tell them to find interesting ways to use CPU cycles, and to be extremely generous with how their database servers cache result sets in memory ;)

    This disgusts me. This country does not stand for anything anymore, we constantly are giving in to anyone who complains.

    He shouldn't have compromised his company or ideals. Judges should have no say on a persons morals, thats why we have those signs saying we can refuse business to anyone.

    If I were Mr. Warren, I would advertise that his site is for heterosexuals only. Sure that allows someone else to get rich by making a site for homosexuals only, however at least you wont get your hands dirty.
