Well, they do, we have no control over the law of the land.

Errr... this is a Californian law, it is not the law of the land.

Not to mention that if this law was followed to the letter then any "dating site" that caters to any one people base don religion, or race, would also have to be sued. That means other websites of Hindu only websites, Muslim only websites, or any website even those based on race such as all website of Hispanics dating only other Hispanics, blacks only dating blacks, whites only dating other whites, etc would have to be sued...

lol, not just Cali


Christians are the only ones discriminating (to gays) therefore they are the only ones being sued


I can go onto a Black or Muslim website, even being lilly white, and look for a black or muslim boyfriend if I wanted to.

They also have exception for gay as well so they are not discriminating.

I know this is very hard for narrow minds to understand.

Just bc you would never go to the website does not mean they are discriminating against you.

wow...the claims some people make up... why would it be a hispanic only, or black only, or Muslim only, or Hindu only dating website? I guess to you that means because anyone of any belief, or tradition can simply join in...

It certainly does not, the day it does is the day religious freedom ceases to exist altogether. But yes i know some people want exactly that to happen.

Why not make a same sex dating website? You are more than free to do so. There are probably dozens and dozens already out there. The only reason lawsuits like this one exist is to destroy traditions some people simply want to destroy.

Nope. It's okay to have a black dating site, as long as you allow gay blacks, Muslim blacks, Christian blacks, etc.

It's okay to have a Muslim dating site as long as you allow black Muslims, white Muslims, gay Muslims, etc.

It's okay to have a Christian dating site as long as you allow black Christians, Hispanic Christians, gay Christians, etc.

You can't have a business that advertises it services Christians while turning away certain Christians. ALL Christians should be allowed.

You can't have a business that advertises it services Muslims while turning away certain Muslims. ALL Muslims should be allowed.

Religious websites allow anyone of any race to join and seek love based on religious traditions. They are not based on race, but on religion. Race websites allow anyone of any specific race to seek others of the same race. Is it racist? sure can be, but it is their right to do that.

Religious websites are based on religious beliefs, and there are a lot of religious beliefs that do not agree with same sex relations.

In general Judaism, Christianity and Islam do not agree with same sex marriage. Are there some Christian denominations that are opening to the LGBT issue? sure, just like there are still Mormon denominations who can be in polygamist marriages, just like Muslims can also marry up to 4 wives. Just because I disagree with their views doesn't mean they shouldn't be able to follow their belief.

It's a business, and it's under California law. Just clearing up your incorrect post on what the law does and does not force. The law does not force a Muslim site to allow Christian or Jewish subscribers. The law does not force a black dating site to allow whites subscribers. The law DOES imply that you cannot turn away someone who qualifies as a subscriber (Christian for a Christian dating site, or Muslim for a Muslim dating site, or black for a black dating site) based on their sexual orientation.

A Christian bookstore is not required to sell any non-Christian books, but they cannot refuse to sell their Christian books to gay people, according to the same law.

A google search yields a multitude of gay only christian dating sites. I am so sick of these SJW PC cry babies making people do things against their will. If a business don't offer a service to suit your needs use a different provider. Sheesh!

This is a fairly simple concept, it's called the free market. I know most SJW PC police lefties are against the concept of a free market and take it upon themselves to regulate privately owned and operated businesses. Bunch of Marxist nutcases!

But why would anyone want to use a company that was forced to accept your business anyway?
I would be concerned about the quality of service among other things...
It's a niche market, a targeted group get over it!!!

This is like a vegan getting pissed that Outback steakhouse doesn't offer enough vegan alternative dishes.
Or like me griping that an Asian only dating site doesn't have a Cauc-Asian option...

More American Christians are accepting LGBT people, even if their churches strongly oppose gay and lesbian relationships, according to a Pew Research Center report of U.S. religious beliefs and practices released Friday. While more non-Christians accept gay relationships than Christians, the number of Christians who say LGBT relationships should be accepted and not discouraged has grown by 10 percentage points since 2007, the study found.

Overall, 54 percent of Christians say gay people should be accepted, compared with 76 percent of non-Christians and 83 percent of religiously unaffiliated people. Across the general U.S. population, 62 percent accept gay relationships, up from 50 percent in 2007. Most churches teach gay relationships are an act of sin or “intrinsically disordered," the Pew study said.

The shift among Christians can be attributed to young church members who generally embrace gay relationships compared with older churchgoers. Only a third of evangelical baby boomers and a fifth of evangelicals in the silent generation say gay people should be accepted by society while 51 percent of evangelical Protestants in the millennial generation were OK with LGBT relationships. The same was true among Catholics, mainline Protestants and members of the historically black Protestant tradition. www.ibtimes.com...

NOOOO!!!!!!! It's not like that AT ALL.

It's like Outback Steakhouse has a sign out front that says "Whites Only". THAT is what it's like.

It doesn't matter how many gay dating sites are out there, its an issue of discrimination and equal rights is very important to most people.

They may not even want to use that website, however they were discriminated against and it was wrong. It is comparable to putting a sign in front of a restaurant that says "NO GAYS ALLOWED".

Yes you could just go to another restaurant, but the discrimination is still happening and it needs to stop.

Personally, if I were that gay person, I would never step foot in that restaurant, but I would make sure they would pay for their discrimination and avoid that ever happening to another fellow human being.

Sorry you are so simple minded that you cannot understand the importance of human rights.

I am so sick of antiquated and selective thinking.

CA has had an anti-discrimination law since 1959.

Christian Mingle ignored this law when setting up their site in 2011. 42 years after anti-discrimination became law in CA.

Equal Rights - - - live with it or go cry to someone else.

You can call it what you want. Just because you are atheist and don't agree with religions following their traditions doesn't mean they should do what you want them to do.

I am guessing that Christian mingle can also come up with a lawsuit that religious freedom is also guaranteed under the Constitution of the United States, and their freedom to exercise religion as they believe is being attacked.

I never understood why you can have dating sites or groups stating blacks, gays or Muslim only but do it with a Christian or white group or dating site and everyone loses their minds.

I am pretty sure you can have an all white/Christian group or dating site without them being anti...whatever.

By the way I am not white or anti the other groups, just stating that you either let all groups or whatever have their exclusiveness or none.

I am native American/First Nations.

Christian Mingle is not a church; it is a business. And as a business, it must follow the laws regarding businesses/public accommodations- as all other business do.
