Say it ain’t so eHarmony

eHarmony has decided to offer up its matchmaking services to the gay and lesbian community (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,454904,00.html) as part of a settlement in a law suit brought against them for discriminating against gays and lesbians because they had restricted their matchmaking for heterosexual couples only. Neil Clark Warren, a professing Christian, had promised to Christian advertisers that he would never allow such a thing…ummmmm.

Now I realize that eHARMONY matches people of all faiths, etc. In God’s common grace, I believe that God reckons even non-believers as married based on a creation ordinance of heterosexual union. I, however, don’t believe that God looks upon homosexual “marriage” as valid within the pale of ‘common grace’. This is a societal sin that evidences God’s increasing withdrawal of “common grace” from our culture and His allowing us to go our own way…for our own harm.

    Sad that eHarmony was pressured into it. Another sign of the times. Will churches begin to face similar pressure in the U.S.?

    • we shall see what will happen with churches…i think that private schools will be the first to be challenged on some of these issues…for example, would a christian university be free to decline a homosexual partner request for married housing, etc.
