    See, this is the sort of thing that homosexuals don't like to talk about. Because for all of their "we just want to be left alone to live in peace" bullsh*t, fact is that what they want is to impose their lifestyle on all the rest of us, shove it down our throats (figuratively speaking) and force all the rest of us to accept their "lifestyle" on an equal footing on the rest of society.

    If I want to run a service (or a parade or a hotel or whatever) and say "ya know, this is for straight people only" then what right does anyone have forcing me to change that..?

    Coincidentally the Gov of NH signed the civil unions legislation in that state, the people have spoken.

    You can't treat any American as a second-class citizen. At the same time, if you aren't qualified to offer a service, like matching gays, because you don't understand enough about them, then you should be entitled to deny them what would otherwise be a crappy service anyway. My guess is that this case will turn on whether E-harmony is entitled to remain ignorant of gays. After all, I'm sure the president of this company doesn't know the first thing about the computer algorithm that his company uses to match straight people. He hires people to understand it for him. Why has he chosen to not hire people who could create one for gays?

    It's an absurd case. There are all sorts of restrictive groups: Christian singles, Jewish singles, gay dating services, not to mention porn. The case is almost as ignorant as anyone who believes one woman's activities in Northern California represent the gay agenda.

    Lol, one person's lawsuit constitutes an agenda for an entire class of people? Like Patters said, it's a stupid suit and it should get tossed. When that woman sued McDonalds because she spilled her coffee, did we call it the feminine agenda?

    I it find laughable to think of nation's gay people getting together at a secret meeting to discuss how they're going to push their agenda to make us all gay.

    Why does he have to? It's a service site. If they don't fit your needs, go somewhere else.

    Nope, it fits the John Edwards Agenda. :D

    BTW, that netted her something like $3 million from the jury. Although I do believe that total was later reduced.

    Yes, yes it does. But, even then, she wasn't part of any agenda. She just wanted to get paid, there was no overriding agenda behind it. Likewise with this case. It's one person peeved with what they perceive is discrimination, there were no late-night backroom discussions about how to further the "gay agenda".

    Lol. Patters was saying the woman's case is crazy. Talk about persecution complex. You'd make a good ulta-liberal, with your I'm-always-a-victim mentality.

    Gee, I dunno... does your version also include "The case is almost as ignorant as anyone who believes one woman's activities in Northern California represent the gay agenda"..?

    Don't get me wrong... I dish it out and I can take it too (and I've certainly been called worse)... but I just see Patters has a pattern of responding with hostility and venom towards anyone that doesn't support his agenda 100%... which is fine by me, were it not for the fact that if you respond to him in kind, you get censored and/or threaten with being banned.

    He shouldn't be allowed to post here and be a moderator. All too often he engages in the activities he is supposed to be preventing.

    My understanding is that EHarmony's algorithm is based on surveys of long-married couples. With gay marriage outlawed, then so much for long-married gay couples and so much for having such an algorithm for them. EHarmony should not be forced to create such an algorithm for gay people.

    Hey, I just went to Buenos Aires with my partner to celebrate our 25th anniversary (and third year of legal marriage). Nonetheless, I agree with gist of the point you and Pujo made.

    So what if the owner of this site said only all Pats fans who aren't Italian are welcome here? This is a private website. Should he have the right to discriminate against you just because you have too many vowels in your name?

    If there's a legitimate reason to not provide the service, fine. Heart surgeons, for example, are NOT discriminating against people with sick Livers when they don't help them. They're just specializing.
