E Harmony has surrendered! In the latest of a series of shakedowns against those who believe marriage is between a man and a woman, E harmony has agreed to create a separate same sex dating service to settle a New Jersey Lawsuit.

Theodore Olson, attorney for eHarmony, said the company decided to settle rather than deal with an unknown jury pool.

“Even though we believed that the complaint resulted from an unfair characterization of our business, we ultimately decided it was best to settle this case with the attorney general since litigation outcomes can be unpredictable,” Olson said in a statement.

The site’s owner, Neil Clark Warren, an evangelical, had said publicly he did not want to introduce a same-sex site because he was not familiar enough with same-sex relationships. eHarmony became popular with the public because of its emphasis on personality traits.

“It’s basically the power of the government being used to force people across the country to accept beliefs that they know are not moral,” said Kelly Shackelford, president of the Free Market Foundation and chief counsel of the Liberty Legal Institute. “It’s an attack on freedom, and people better get ready to fight.”

Key Biblical worldview training questions:

1. Do you agree or disagree with the settlement?

2. If you were the founder of E-harmony, would have settled?

3. What is the biblical position for not allowing same sex dating services on this type of website?

An Amazing act of forgiveness December 11, 2008

Korean immigrant Dong Yun Yoon,who lost his wife, two children and mother-in-law when a Marine Corps jet slammed into the family’s house, is modeling Christian forgiveness to the world. He said Tuesday he did not blame the pilot, who ejected and survived.

Last night I watched journalist Anderson Cooper on CNN marvel at the man’s ability to forgive, yet never mention that it was his Christian faith that gave him that guidance. Cooper said, ” Could you offer that forgiveness?” Great question and one I hope I never have to answer. In the meantime, please remember him in your prayers. He is an amazing example to us all and will need plenty of support in the days ahead.

Key worldview training questions:

1. What would have been your response in that situation? Could you have offered forgiveness, especially that soon after the deaths?

2. Why is this so surprising to people like journalist Anderson Cooper?

3. What kind of things can Christians do when fellow Christian friends suffer tremendous lost? What should we not do?

Is there a political cost for adultery? December 5, 2008

The latest political buzz is about what role, if any, former presidential candidate John Edward will have in the Obama administration. Earlier he had been mentioned as a possible candidate for Attorney General. As of today, though, it does not look like he will have any role at all. The problem is Edward’s admission of adultery and the bad press that followed. Not only did he commit adultery, but he lied about it for a lengthy amount of time.  Proverbs 5:22-23 talks about the cost of adultery.”The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him; the cords of his sin hold him fast. He will die for lack of discipline, led astray by his own great own great folly.” Edwards is a professing Christian. With the confession and repentance, he can be restored and even his marriage can be saved. However, the truth of the Bible rings true again- there is a cost to sin. And in this case it may cost Edwards a prestigious post in the Obama administration. Key things to think about.

1. Should admitted adultery be reason to not hire someone to a prominent political position? What about a highly visible business position.

2. If you were the president Obama and thought he was the most qualified person for the job, would you appoint him, despite the admitted adultery?
