Lee explained that while the website was preventing gay and bi Christians from finding love on Christian Mingle, users were turning to secular options like OKCupid that allow filtering by religion, or going on his organization's network."Although I know Christian Mingle would like to be seen as the place for all Christians to date online, it's simply not the case," Lee told The News.Others include Loveandseek.com, Christian Cafe.com, and Equally Together, they form a pool of eligible Christian singles that is rapidly growing in size.
The site is designed exclusively for Christians who adhere to the Calvinist tradition, a theological system that focuses on human depravity, God’s sovereignty, and the idea that God has already chosen the select few who will be saved."There are plenty of other options, including a number that are very open to LGBT people and always have been." Man used Christian dating site to find his rape victim: cops Lee was also disappointed that the website only changed its policy after settling a lawsuit.As part of the settlement, Spark will also have to pay ,000 each to Aaron Werner and Richard Wright, the two gay men who sued the company, as well as 0,000 in attorneys’ fees.The new trend in dating sites built exclusively for Christians may have emerged long after their general market analogs but they make few strides in avoiding the same pitfalls.As usual, the Christian sub-culture is a step behind and not an inch deeper—from music to books to fashion trends, and now online dating.
