E-Harmony Forced to Add Gays to Main Site

Ad Feedback

A California court is forcing the online dating Web site eHarmony to become more welcoming to homosexuals.

EHarmony already has a separate Web site for gays and lesbians as a result of an earlier lawsuit.

However, the court order from the latest lawsuit requires them to add homosexual matches to the company's main site.

Under the settlement they will also be required pay more than a half a million dollars to homosexual residents who filed discrimination complaints.

Some pro-family conservatives are angered over what they view as a betrayal of the online dating site's core values. Consequently, they have threatened to encourage singles to use "other dating services that have not sold out their God and their moral beliefs for the almighty dollar."

"To those of us in the pro-family movement who hailed eHarmony's commitment to the virtue of traditional marriage, the company's actions are distressing and damaging," Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, told the Christian Post.

Eharmony was created by Neil Clark Warren, a Christian psychologist who based his compatibility models around traditional marriage.
