Litigious gay activists try to sue eHarmony

As a Libertarian, it is my belief that government should be only minimally involved concerning public affairs. This belief also applies in regards to an article featured a few days ago on BET.com that reported on a suit brought against eHarmony for allegedly discriminating against homosexuals. Linda Carlson, a lesbian from San Francisco, says she was unable to create a gay profile on the popular site, and w ...
