eHarmony being sued

Posted by Chance on June 4, 2007

Hat tip to Neil Simpson for this bit of news. eHarmony is being sued for excluding gays.

Here are a couple of my thoughts.

1) This is a prime, prime example of where we should let the market sort it out. If someone wants to start an all-gay dating service, so be it. That is their right. If someone wants to start an all-straight dating service, so be it.

As much as (some) liberals detest the free market, the free market is what allows people to live according to their own moral code. Think about it. All dating services could be forced to conform to a universal set of government laws, or they could all be free to operate as they wish, satisfying the diversity of consumers out there.

2) Many liberals are truly liberals, they believe that people should be free to live as they please. Other liberals, however, are not. They are all about coercion. These are the liberals who think doctors should be forced to perform abortions against their conscience, enforce campus hate speech codes, and in this case, force a business to accommodate lifestyles with which they disagree. Don’t let the “live and let live” stuff fool you. These people are all about forcing others to do things against their conscience to accommodate their own lifestyle.

    Rather sad state of affairs isn’t it?

    Makes you wonder why someone who was so angry wouldn’t just take the time to make their own dating site.

    Yeah, I’ve been on there looking for some animals or underage girls to marry to no avail.

    I’m going to sue also.
