Marriage Equality is Damaging E-Harmony Says Company's Founder

Good news.  Could it be that we are now seeing the visitation of divine judgement moving against mean-spirited, misguided people of religion everywhere - especially against the clerics - from Cleveland, Tennessee to Virginia Beach, VA, and from Tehran, Iran to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, and from Minsk, Belarus to Moscow, Russia?
