Online dating organizations have come and gone. Few of them make a dent in the general marketplace. Among the dominators have been eHarmony with its bajillion item Myers-Briggs questionnaire and publicly avowed, born-again Christian CEO Neil Clark Warren, Ph.D.
Well, after a decade of making a viable brand and somehow surreptitiously envoke the name of God, Neil Clark Warren has done what so many others in his position have done. He caved to the stress of “the man,” as seen in this story by blogging hottie (and writer par excellence) Michelle Malkin.
In this case, the “man” is a collective group of vociferous sexually confused folk traipsing around eHarmony’s HQ in drag – the otherwise known homosexual community. (OK, not all of them are in drag, but I’m all about creating word pictures. Work with me people.)
New Jersey plaintiff Eric McKinley can now crown himself the new Rosa Parks — heroically breaking down inhumane barriers to Internet matchmaking by forcing a law-abiding private company to provide services it was never created to provide.”Men seeking men” has now been enshrined with “I have a dream” as a civil rights rallying cry of the 21st century. Bully for you, Mr. McKinley. You bully.
Genius! Seriously, this law suit was nothing more than a money grab, and an opportunity to get 15 minutes on Pride radio and an exclusive in The Advocate.
Please. There are gay matchmaking sites EVERYWHERE. Why go here? You think there would be chiseled brothers sweltering in the closet who would jump out (and snap in a circle no less) at the very look of young Eric McKinley’s photoshopped head shot?
No, this was about a political agenda against – wait for it – Christians.
To bash them in the mouth, kick them in the shin and kick dirt in Gramps Warren’s face.And have Hollywood adore you for it.
You feel good about yourself now? You should now that Warren had his PR reps pen this force-fed update on the company:
According to the settlement, eHarmony will launch a new website, CompatiblePartners.net, aimed solely at the homosexual community. As part of the settlement, eHarmony, Inc. will advertise the website in homosexual media outlets, will allow the first 10,000 users to register free and will pay $50,000 to the attorney general’s office and $5,000 to the man who filed the initial complaint. It also will post a statement on the new website saying its matchmaking strategy is based on research involving heterosexual couples and not homosexual couples. (Source: Baptist Press)
What’s next for Warren? Gender profiling for advertising in “stereotypical” homosexual media outlets. Maybe they’re not gay, just “colorful”. Who ever thought what used to be a pot o’ gold and the dude from Lucky Charms would end up being the rally towel for unity agendas everywhere.
