“We’ve spent substantial time recently bringing our entire team together to formalize a company mission and values statement that reflects who we are today. Explicitly reflecting a brand and a workplace that strives to be safe, inclusive and welcoming to each and every member of our community,” eHarmony COO Gareth Mandel told NBC Out News in 2021.

One would almost forget that eHarmony was originally founded by an Evangelical pastor named Neil Clark Warren and that, for religious reasons, it would not allow dating for same-sex couples or anyone who had been divorced more than once.

And while the website was never intended to be a Christian dating site, Salon reported back in 2005 that its account holders were exclusively Christian through its first couple of years of operation.

Further, Warren had a history of working alongside James Dobson of the socially conservative group Focus on the Family, with him telling Salon at the time that he maintained a lot of respect for the Christian organization.
