    A man who believes in Christianity's definition of marriage (a 'holy matrimony' between a man and a woman) runs an app that encourages the exact opposite sentiments to what he believes is the true definition of marriage, and the more popular it gets, the more irrelevant that original definition becomes in the larger part of society.

    In a hundred years, English textbooks will cite this as a real life example of irony. Absolutely wonderful.

  7. He said it was his personal belief that was his own business and still supports lgbt rights. I can already tell this will get spun out of control In the media because people are retarded.

  10. No offense to the OP but this story is a tad old. That being said, I haven’t heard a lot of backlash on this. You’d think after almost a week, but no.

    I think people are just tired of the culture wars....me included.

  12. He went up and shot a sacred cow between the eyes at point blank, man.

    Not a big deal to normal people like us, of course, but think about who we are speculating.

  13. It sounds like this guy is just truly, honestly terrible at articulating his thoughts and regulating his own speech because I have no goddamn idea what he's trying to say.

  14. Honestly a guy making money off twerps who think online dating will fill the void in their awful lives while casually condemning their hopes and dreams deserves a brofist from any Kiwi.

  15. Yeah, this seems to be the main response to it I've seen, in what little response there's been. Hell, the article about Ariana Grande's music video being homophobic, racist and transphobic got more of a pushback than this did.

    I also think that of the LGBT, The G are in general - not always, but in general - both the least REEEE-y and the ones already being thrown under the Social Justice bus, so some exec's personal beliefs about a matter already decided by law in most of the western world doesn't really matter. That he's talking marriage and runs a hookup app only makes for a headline, not a real story.

  16. "bought by a Chinese gaming corporation" is the most interesting part of this story. Is TenCent at it again?

    EDIT: Looks like it's the Kunlun Group, and the only thing westerners would recognize from them are all the ads for "League of Angels" on facebook and gaming sites.

  17. He personally views marriage as a sacred bond between a man and a woman but thinks it would be wrong to impose his will on other people.
