eHarmony Fiasco


Trying to Take Over the World–And Winning.

Gay Rights Advocates Breaking out the Bully Tactics Against American Business

Ok.  This eHarmony thing is keeping me up at night. It’s pure unadulterated chutzpah to even think that one community of people ought to be able force a private business to do their bidding.

Didn’t they read “The Analogy”?? This is wrong!  This is what your blogger warned you about!


Remember this picture?

Foxnews reported on eHarmony’s capitulation to demands that they provide dating services to the gay community even though eHarmony’s formulas are based on years of research into traditional relationships between a man and a woman…not homosexual relationships.  Not only is eHarmony building a brand new business from the ground up, complete with new research and methods aimed at matching homosexual couples, but the agreement includes cash incentives and free memberships for the plaintiffs as well as mandating that eHarmony increase “gay awareness” in the workplace.

Obviously these people were total homophobes right?  Please.  If I go into a bar and demand a milkshake…does that make the bar owner some kind of phobic?  No.  Should I be able to take them to court to force them to feed me my favorite rocky road and whip cream delight?  Of course not.  It’s ridiculous, unless you’re gay, and of course, then everything is automatically about discrimination.

Coming after a private business, in fact targeting them, precisely because they might have moral objections to gay marriage is simply wrong.  Using legal manoevers to get what you want seems to be the tool of the new age bully and gay advocates are using it with wild abandon.

As Michelle Malkin reports:

Neil Warren, eHarmony’s founder, is a gentle, grandfatherly businessman who launched his popular dating site to support heterosexual marriage. A “Focus on the Family” author with a divinity degree, Warren encourages healthy, lasting unions between men and women of all faiths, mixed faiths or no faith at all.

Don’t like what eHarmony sells? Go somewhere else. There are thousands upon thousands of dating sites on the Internet that cater to gays, lesbians, Jews, Muslims, Trekkies, runners, you name it.

No matter. In the name of tolerance, McKinley refused to tolerate eHarmony’s right to operate a lawful business that didn’t give him what he wanted. He filed a discrimination complaint against eHarmony with the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights in 2005.

Forcing a business to create a new business to service a market it never intended to service is a slap in the face to those of us who have adopted the good neighbor attitudes of live and let live that gay advocates are always spouting when the doctrine falls in their favor.  Forcing eHarmony to cave in to financial and legal pressures is the epitome of Mayor Newsom’s “Whether you like it or not” attitude and confirms a lot of fears out there about gay advocacy groups not being interested in getting along, but rather in dominating.

This completely creepy coersion effort has now turned into a class action lawsuit.  Gay rights advocates smell blood in the water and are circling eHarmony looking for more handouts, more power and more domination.  Other businesses it sees as vulnerable will be next.

Like Warner Bros’ comedy cartoon, “Pinky and the Brain” with their numerous crazy plots to take over the world, the gay community seems willing to try anything that will stick, and the legal system is only happy to play along as the goofy stooge, only in the real world the consequences aren’t amusing at all, and if you’re getting the feeling that they’re winning, you’re right.
