E Harmony Shakedown a disgrace December 17, 2008

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?
