gay rights extremists bring us an e-harmony disaster

Democrats we are the majority party now. We have responsbilities to 100% of the population. We can no longer look at the country from a protest point of view from various numerical minorities if we don't want to return to be minority status.
Or is that where most here feel comfortable?
This article shows that the exremists in the gay rights movements have moved past tolerance, acceptance, and even equality. They are demanding that people who disagree with them have their rights curtailed.
In this case the E-harmony business decided it was better to settle than fight a civil lawsuit. I think that is a horrible idea because it will re-invigorate others to use the law to force others to think a certain way.
E-harmony had a business that matched
Everyone was welcome to purchase their service if that's what they wanted.
There are other businesses that offer similar services for people seeking same sex relationships.
Yet, the premise of this suit is that it is discriminatory for
eharmony to be in the business that they want to be in, and that the government should either force them to change their business or go out of business.
For people who keep comparing this to race, this is just one of many examples of why the comparison is not apt.
First it is offensive to me as an African American to compare what my people have gone throught to an orientation that a person can declare or not declare and switch based on their preference.
But I digress.
When blacks sue to be served by the private businesses, it was to receive the same exact service as the next person. No better. No worse. No different.
This person who brought the suit is forcing eharmony to have to actually change his business, change his computer programs, and now actually do something the company obviously didn't want to do.
If Democrats on all sides of these issues can't agree that a website has the right to determine what business they are selling, and not be forced to offer a service they might disagree with, we will deserve to lose the majority.
Luckily, so far President - elect Obama has shown himself to be in tune with the American people.It would be equal to forcing MyDD to print pro-Republican material to balance the pro-Democratic tilt on this site.
