According to Yahoo Finance News, the founder of eHarmony says that their stance against marriage equality has damaged the company:
eHarmony claims it will help you find that special person — if you’re heterosexual, that is. In the company’s early years, Warren primarily marketed to a Christian clientele, and vaunted his association with Focus on the Family, the evangelical organization founded by James Dobson. Now a secular site, eHarmony has been the target of numerous lawsuits for its refusal to match same-sex couples. In 2008, eHarmony reached a settlement with New Jersey’s Civil Rights Division in a discrimination case — the company agreed to launch a new website that would cater to same-sex couples. Compatible Partners was launched in 2009.
“I think this issue of same-sex marriage within the next five to 15 years will be no issue anymore. We’ve made too much of it. I’m tired of it. It has really damaged our company,” Warren said, “and when the attorney general of the state of New Jersey decided that we had to put up a same-sex site and we did it out of counsel that if we didn’t do it we were not going to have any business in New Jersey — we literally had to hire guards to protect our lives because the people were so hurt and angry with us, were Christian people, who feel that it’s a violation to scripture.
