How long must we tolerate the intolerant?
Neil Warren worked with James Dobson and Focus on the Family for many years before leaving to start his own business, a matching service called e-harmony.com. After being pressured by the Civil Rights Division of California state government, e-harmony caved into providing a parallel dating service for homosexuals called Compatible Partners. Eric McKinley, a 46 year old gay male from New Jersey won a lawsuit against e-harmony and will receive $5,000 and a year of free membership. He accused e-harmony of being intolerant to those of his persuasion. Are there no gay websites for Mr. McKinley to go to for such a service? Are there not many other ways for homosexuals to find each other? McKinley stated that he was very hurt that he couldn't participate in the e-harmony dating service because he was gay. And so, in his endeavor to demand his own freedom he would so selfishly take away the freedom of another. Neil Warren is no longer free to be true the mission of his company which promoted marriage between a man and a woman and provided a dating service exclusively for those who believe that heterosexual relationships are scriptural and homosexual relationships are a violation of God's plan for mankind.
It seems those who shout loudest for tolerance are themselves most intolerant. Why do we tolerate a government that will so eagerly impose the values of a minority (homosexuals only make up 2-3% of the U.S. population) opon the majority. It looks to me like e-harmony is being punished because they are Christian and their mission of helping young Christians find each other has no sympathy at all with the governing body of California!! Everyone has a champion in government to fight for their rights except Christians. I believe our Champion would have us lean on Him and not depend on the government to protect of defend us.
