California christian dating so dating x xx
The latest example of the erosion of religious liberty comes as a judge recently ruled that the owners of Christian online dating service Christian Mingle.com, Spark Networks Inc., must begin including gay persons as part of their dating pool to pursue same-sex relationships.
Because the dating website didn’t allow new users to specify their search to include a seeker status for gays looking for same-sex relationships, two gay men decided to sue the site’s owner claiming the limited, heterosexual options violated the Unruh Civil Rights Act – a California anti-discrimination law that requires businesses to provide, “full and equal accommodations” to people regardless of their sexual orientation.” As a result, not only will Christian be forced to include and accommodate homosexuals as part of their dating service, Catholic and Adventist Singles Connection.com, two other Christian-oriented dating sites must also include gays in their relationship-seeking pool of dating hopefuls.
This public relations campaign was clearly and predictably dishonest.
Promoters and supporters of the homosexualized agenda didn’t want social acceptance or tolerance, and they surely didn’t want “equal treatment” or “equal rights.” Gay rights advocates and their rainbow flag/pink equal sign supporters wanted created out of thin air for their benefit (at the expense of everyone else), special considerations, and legal protections.
So Christian matchmakers, cake makers, photographers, florists, gift shop and venue owners, pizzerias, bed and breakfast owners, bakers, pizza shop owners, carpenters, and other Christian-run businesses and organizations have been targeted, harassed, retaliated against via prosecution (which in many cases has forced closure) and/or legally required to engage in activities that contradict their religious faith for the sake of legitimizing homosexual behavior through a secular and sexualized agenda.
This cultural and judicial coercion isn’t simply relegated to Christian family business owners.
So that is another reason and I don’t want to make it all about immorality, although I do believe that we are not doing so well in the area of purity within the church.
We’re back with Francis Chan, who is kind enough to join us today and tomorrow.
Francis and his wife Lisa are the authors of the new book, You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity.
It wasn’t too long ago when so-called gay rights advocates began their social and political campaign to normalize homosexuality, they claimed that publicly accepting gay relationships and civil unions – a deliberate and calculated step toward the eventual redefinition of marriage – wouldn’t injure society or interfere with other people’s lives or relationships.
They morally emotionalized their message as being one of “love” against “hate.” They recast their social experiment and crusade against traditional sexual norms and cultural values as one in pursuit of “justice” and civil “rights.” They simply wanted, they claimed, to be treated “equally” like everyone else.
