Love Everlasting?

I like the eHarmony ads, but Hubby and I — who met by online personals; you can get anything over the Internet — wondered if gay people were welcome.

The answer is no. Cue facile excuses, exunt homosexuals. eHarmony founder (and TV spokesperson) Neil Clark Warren was a darling of Focus on the Family — now distancing himself. This may be the softer side of conservative Evangelicalism, but I’m betting the softness is to promote market share.

No secrets here; this story has been all over the media. This May 2005 article from USA Today popped up quickly in Google.

Just a little warning for those straight heterosexuals out there who might have thought about using the service, and a little advice: Know thyself and it makes finding someone a heck of a lot easier.
