Christian internet dating site required to offer equal services for gay users
July 04, 2016
An online Christian dating service will be required to offer its services to homosexuals under the terms of a court settlement.
ChristianMingle.com-- which has affiliated sites including CatholicMingle.com-- agreed to the settlement after two homosexual men filed a class-action lawsuit claiming discrimination.

The bullies will continue to prevail until the faithful decide to stand up to them. It appears that we will have to lose the country before Catholics find the gumption to fight. Just as the authorities deny the fact that the Saracens continue their war against Christians, so too do Christians continue to deny the culture war against morality, decency, and the rule of God's law. We need a series of second collections to support and create new Catholic legal foundations who will fight for justice.

Then it will cease being Christian. How on earth did a moral teaching, taught for thousands of years in all the world's dominant religions and practiced in secular government for millennia get twisted into a civil rights issue? Why are Christians just sitting back and watching their religious liberties slip away like sands in and hour glass? It seems to me that God's people are either confused or apathetic. Where is our Christian leadership?

No one can deny that our faith is under attack by our liberal legislators and judiciary. I don't use Christian Mingle (76 and happily married) but I'm sending them a donation to show support. (They may be for profit (not sure) but court costs are not cheap!)

Did BlackSingles.com agree to add options to give Hispanic, Asian and white users "a more tailored experience"? And is anyone suing Grindr? Because anti-discrimination laws. Because inclusivity. Because diversity. Sheesh.

Insane. An insane court decision in a country gone insane. Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat.
