If I was the owner of eHarmony I'd rather burn the website down then be forced to hand it over to the gays.

It's clear gays are on the march to destroy the country and it's values and we are going to have to fight it at every turn.

Let me open a new dating website, no Whites. Only minorities. I want to hear all the conservative red states howl about it. Would that be fair?

"Fight, fight, fight..." you sound like McCain hitting his podium during the campaign and almost dying of breath shortens. Oh yeah, he LOST.

I didn't want to believe this but I'm starting to think that its true. You don't have Christians suing to be represented on J-Date or Asian people making legal demands to be on Black Singles...this is crazy.

I am starting to believe that for the gay community, it must become a gay world where everyone HAS TO accept everything about them or they will make our lives pure hell.

One thing about the Black civil rights movement is that we weren't demanding that it become a "Black" world where WE had to be included in EVERYTHING.

Are gays the new monarchy in this country?

We agree to disagree as I believe in gay marriage but I do agree with you that Eharmony is a private co not a gvmt co and thus should cater to who it wants.

If they were an Islamic dating co I doubt that request would be made of them.

I'll stop there and wait for a reply rather than post the dozens of other ones that come up on an easy search.

This was a good and reasonable ruling.
You are confusing private industry with government and other non private industries. What you have stated would be the equivalent of saying that an attorney in private practice does not have the choice of denying representation of anyone who walks through the door and demands it vs. a public defender. One is a public servant while the other is a private industry.

Apples and oranges.

If you feel left out, then sue the company. Don't show me, call your lawyer.
