Settlement leads to eHarmony providing same-sex dating service service

The Boston Herald has this:

TRENTON, N.J. — Gays and lesbians seeking partners now may join an eHarmony.com affiliate, under a settlement announced Wednesday by the state Attorney General’s Office.

Membership to the same-sex matchmaking service will be free for up to 10,000 new users in the first six months, according to the agreement. The eHarmony.com charge usually is about $150.

The announcement came more than three years after Eric McKinley of Monmouth County, N.J., filed a suit claiming that the matching service violated the state’s Law Against Discrimination because it did not offer same-sex services. . . .

I disagree with this court decision. If e-harmony is a private business not in possession of pluralistic tax dollars, then this should have never come to court.

While there are many gay sites for dating, why must it be that this one is forced to offer something for which it disagrees - the homosexual lifestyle?

Chemistry.com offers a similar option with a similar format with a very well known psychologist giving input, etc.

This is the problem with the marriage issue right now, government being involved.

Take government out of marriage, make legal contracts only; ceremonies are symbolic - all this goes away.

Government involved in anything starts to take ownership and inherently disenfranchises those who don't "agree"; government cannot be involved with subjective philosophy of HOW to live life; there are way too many derivations of sources for everyone to agree on.

All government involvement ought to be only that which affects ALL AMERICANS such as national security, fiscal responsibility and national infrastructure.

I’m sure there are a few other subjects of such pluralism but for the most part, government out of the way – people making personal decisions for self-governance, self-reliance and independence.
