I'm a firm believer that no private company should be controlled by the state. Yes, minimal regulations might be necessary, but to force a company to create or alter their business model just because a couple people whine about the business not catering to their personal life is utterly asinine.

It's like those stories about suing Cake shops for not catering to a specific group of people.
I cannot imagine the government stepping in to tell me, in my privately owned company, what products or services I must offer to potential customers because someone was offended by something I wasn’t doing.
In 2013, my company was approached by Benny Hinn Ministries who tried to get us to do Christian voiceovers. I declined because I disagree with their message, and didn’t want to put my voice to a “prayer healing” video that I felt was misleading people.
That’s my right as a business owner.
According to Unruh, that would be a violation. I simply refused the work for religious reasons, and I cannot imagine living in a society in which the government would step in and force me to do those voiceovers, so that Benny Hinn wasn’t offended by my rejection.

As the author relayed in the story, should he be forced to do voice-over work and provide religious podcasts?

Just out of curiosity, I am not taking sides here, does the web site refuse gay members, or do they just not have a box, or a section were a person can identify exclusively as gay?
If they don't have a statement that excludes people that identify as gay, then I don't understand why this is a problem. If anything it would mean that they are not holding a neon sign over gay people and making them look different from any of the other Christians that may be multicultural.
If you are gay and you are Christian, than join and just add that bit of information to your profile, and work that out with your potential mates.
Is that not permitted?
