A class-action lawsuit filed in 2013 by two gay men alleged that Spark Networks, which owns Christian Mingle and several other faith-based dating sites, had broken California anti-discrimination laws by making it impossible for same-sex couples to match. (David Silverman/Getty Images) God-loving gay singles have won the right to mingle on the world's most popular Christian dating site — and every other faith-based matchmaking network owned by its parent company, following a California court ruling.

Spark Networks, which owns Christian Mingle, JDate, and ("the largest dating site by Mormons for Mormons"), first came under legal fire in 2013 after two gay men noticed that new members could only search for dates of the opposite sex.

Spark Networks will have to adjust searching and profile features in these websites to include gay and lesbian singles within two years, as well as pay ,000 each to the two plaintiffs and reimburse them for attorney's fees with 0,000."Spark will not change the gateway/home pages to use the 'man seeking woman' and 'woman seeking man' prompts in the future unless Spark also provide similar prompts which allow individuals seeking a same sex match to enter and use the sites without having to state that they are seeking a match with someone of the opposite sex.

As long as Spark operates the Mingle Sites, users will continue to have the ability to search for potential same sex matches using the site's text searching and profile building functions," the settlement reads."I am gratified that we were able to work with Spark to help ensure that people can fully participate in all the diverse market places that make our country so special, regardless of their sexual orientation," plaintiff's attorney Vineet Dubey was quoted as saying.

Online dating site Christian will now allow gay and lesbian users to look for same-sex matches after a settlement of discrimination claims approved by a California judge, who has also asked the company to pay 8,000 to the two gay men who brought the lawsuit against it.

The plaintiffs alleged in 2013 that Spark Networks Inc., which owns the Christian dating website and several other sites, violated California's anti-discrimination law by limiting options for gays.

"Spark has engaged in a systemic and intentional pattern and practice of arbitrary discrimination against gays and lesbians throughout California by denying them full and equal services, accommodations, advantages and privileges in connection with many of its commercial dating services," reads the class-action complaint filed in December 2013.

As the Wall Street Journal points out, a California state law known as the Unruh Civil Rights Act mandates that "all business establishments of every kind whatsoever" treat every person within the jurisdiction as free and equal regardless of sex, race, religion, marital status and sexual orientation, among other things.

Johnson of the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles County approved a settlement agreement in which Spark agreed to modify its site and search features to include LGBT singles within two years.And the agreement now requires that the gateway or home pages ask the user to just identify as a "man" or a "woman," instead of choosing between "man seeking woman" and "woman seeking man," according to The Wall Street Journal.The settlement applies also to Catholic Mingle.com, Adventist Singles and Black Singles.com, but not to the online Jewish matchmaker JDate.com, which was not part of the lawsuit.In filing a class-action lawsuit, the men alleged that Spark was breaking California anti-discrimination laws by making it impossible for members of the LGBT community to use its services.Same-sex Christian couples couldn't be matched through Christian Mingle because members couldn't register as gay in the first place.Email (Send & Receive) allow members to interact within California Passions without giving out personal contact details.
