Neil Clark Warren, the 78-year-old Christian co-founder of the popular dating site eHarmony, believes gay marriage has “damaged” his company.

“I think this issue of same-sex marriage within the next 5 to 15 years will be no issue anymore,” Warren told Off The Cuff. “We've made too much of it. I'm tired of it. It has really damaged our company.”

“And when the attorney general of the state of New Jersey decided that we had to put up a same-sex site and we did it out of counsel that if we didn't do it we were not going to have any business in New Jersey – we literally had to hire guards to protect our lives, because the people who were so hurt and angry with us were Christian people, who feel that it's a violation to Scripture.”

EHarmony created Compatible Partners, a dating site for gay and lesbian singles, in response to a lawsuit filed in 2008. A separate 2010 suit forced the company to allow users to use both sites without paying a separate fee for each.

“I have said that eHarmony really ought to put up $10 million and ask other companies to put up money and do a really first class job of figuring out homosexuality. At the very best, it's been a painful way for a lot of people to have to live. But at this point, at this age, I want America to start drawing together. I want it to be more harmonious,” Warren added.
