Christian gay lesbian dating site fun cheap dating ideas
Then in 2008, and again in 2010, the rulings from two separate lawsuits required he not only open a dating website for gay and lesbian users, but also unify subscriptions and link between the two sites rather than keep them separate and unaffiliated.
According to a Mashable article about the 2010 lawsuit: A gay man from New Jersey named Eric Mc Kinley filed suit against e Harmony in 2008 for not offering matchmaking for gays and lesbians.
e Harmony settled by agreeing to launch a service for gay and lesbian customers called Compatible Partners.
“All persons within the jurisdiction of this state are free and equal, and no matter what their sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, or sexual orientation are entitled to the full and equal accommodations, advantages, facilities, privileges, or services in all business establishments of every kind whatsoever.” Spark Networks is also host to other religious themed dating sites, including Catholic Mingle.com, JDate.com, and others, and will be changing their formats to include homosexual relationships as well. The two gay men who filed the suit will receive $9,000 a piece to help assuage their hurt feelings, and $450,000 to cover their attorney fees.
Why the gay men couldn’t find relationships on a site for gays, or maybe starting a site for Christian gays of their own, is beyond me.
The owner of online dating site Christian has agreed to let gay and lesbian users search for same-sex matches under a judge-approved settlement of discrimination claims.
Two gay men filed class-actions claims against Spark Networks Inc.
Christian is owned by Spark Networks Inc., which bases itself out of California.
