eHarmony CEO Neil Clark Warren Had to Hire Guards Because of 'Angry' Anti-Gay Christians: VIDEO


eHarmony CEO and co-founder Neil Clark Warren sat down for a chat with CNBC and Yahoo! Finance to talk about a variety of topics. One of them was the 2008 lawsuit with the state of New Jersey after which they put up a gay site. Warren says the threats from "angry" anti-gay Christians after they did that were so great they had to hire guards to protect themselves.

"I think this issue of same-sex marriage within the next 5 to 15 years will be no issue any more. We've made too much of it. I'm tired of it. It has really damaged our company. When the attorney general of the state of NJ decided that we had to put up a same-sex site, and we did it, we literally had to hire guards to protect our lives because the people who were so hurt and angry with us were Christian people who feel that it's a violation to Scripture.

  3. Moral of the story? Religion is bad for your mind and triggers violent behavior.

  4. There were christians in our comunity in southeast Florida who targeted a lesbian couple in their apartment complex for months until the couple finally decided to move! I saw it with my own eyes, and yes, the neighbors taking credit for it and all banding together to harass the lesbian couple were all from the same Church.
    Just because someone says they are Christian does not make them superior in ANY manner.

  5. The thing with religious folks is that they feel entitled to outrageous, boorish behavior because they believe in some man made book. They feel they are the chosen ones, and special, and above law, so they act out. And often. And sadly, we don't hold them nor their religious ilk accountable enough.

  6. Is his argument supposed to express the consequences of allowing gay rights? because all it did was highlight how bat sh-t crazy most Christians can be!

  7. "...we had to put up a same-sex site..."

    No, you didn't. An OBVIOUS question that you should be asking potential daters on your site is whether they would prefer to meet men, women or "doesn't matter." I checked your questions before and thought it was ridiculous that you wouldn't bother asking that question and therefore would be potentially be hooking up gay members with heterosexuals of the opposite sex. You don't need a whole different site. You just need to stop making the naive assumption that thr whole world is heterosexual.

    "...we literally had to hire guards to protect our lives because the people who were so hurt and angry with us were Christian people..."

    Right. That explains it, because "Christian people" can be expected to do the exact opposite of what Jesus taught (which included, by the way, not one word against homosexuality but a whole lot about acceptance and non-violence).

    Then you go on to say that you should put up $10,000,000 to "figure out" homosexuality because it's a painful way that many people have to live?

    You don't need a single penny to understand homosexuality. Everything you need to know about it I could have told you for free, even when I was 12 years old.
    There is nothing painful about homosexuality. HomoPHOBIA is a painful thing for people to have to live with.
    Homosexuality itself has never hurt anybody.

  8. Well, how about those "Christians", those murderous, blood-thirsty, stone-throwing "Christians"...?

  9. What these ignorant Religion commenters do not understand is that the rules in the "Bible" were written by the "Rulers" to control the masses. The LAST thing any Dictator wants is the people to be happy with themselves. So they made rules against natural desires and told the masses that "GOD" told them. That way, they had an excuse to punish the masses for not cow towing to their every demand.

  10. He said it's a non issue and that he wants America to get past it and come together on this. He called out nutball Christians for threatening his life.

    Give the guy a break.

    A state government sued his privately owned company for not offering a service. Get outraged about that.

  11. It's wonderful how you delete any posts that defend Dr. Warren. Pure propaganda on this site.

  12. I just love how less than 10% of the population, gays, trash and bully anyone who who has a different opinion. All, of course, in the name of 'tolerance'.
