I’ll stand arm in arm with the gay rights crowd when it comes to demanding equality under the law. But forcing a private dating service to spend money to reconfigure its website and retool its matchmaking formula to accommodate homosexuals isn’t a civil rights issue. It’s petulant and silly.

Ultimately, it’ll also be counterproductive... Because if feeds into the... claim that the gay rights crowd is forcing its lifestyle onto others...

Freedom of association means that when private parties choose to associate with one another, some people will under some circumstances be excluded. Deal with it.

It’s too bad eHarmony caved.
