Suing eHarmony to match gay couples is like suing Abercrombie & Fitch to cater to dwarfs.

There are plenty of other online dating services from which to choose -- and if you don't like any of them, then start your own! Forcing a company to cater to a certain demographic is ridiculous.

Nobody has an innate right to be a customer of a private corporation.

Now we frickin' have to deal with idiots who think that eHarmony was successfully sued. eHarmony settled; they wussed out. Their decision to start a new dating site was not mandated by the courts -- and it wouldn't have been, either (not justly, anyway).

If the Church of Latter-day Saints officially uses this issue as fodder to "prove" that religious freedoms are in danger... well, there's not saying what I'm going to do -- but it will be out of complete frustration, and I'll probably regret it.


  1. I agree. The Eharmony thing is ridiculous, although the idea of saying religious freedom is threatened by the lawsuit seems to me equally ridiculous. What? Online dating is a part of religion now?

  2. I was thinking the same thing...I fail to see the connection, except the suggestion that mormons will possibly use the following argument: "SEE?! OMG THAT WILL TOTALLY HAPPEN TO RELIGIONS NOW BAFKLJASFLSAJASLFJA FAJFASFASFJ;ASFJAFAFSLF JESUS CHRIST." Which is false, religions are completely free of government mandates, as they have no representation and are not taxed.

    Hell, the LDS church can play "takesies backsies" and deny blacks the priesthood again. The law wouldn't be able to do shit, but you can bet their membership numbers would plunge.

    You could very well argue that Andrew is taking a libertarian stance on the matter.
