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.The suit against Spark states that, at the time of its filing, individuals wishing to use the Spark dating sites for Christians, Catholics, Mormons, Seventh-day Adventists, military singles and black singles could only choose from two options on the home screens of these services: "a man seeking a woman" or "a woman seeking a man." Last week, approximately 2½ years after the lawsuit was originally filed, Judge Jane L.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.It’s Just Lunch offers clients a chance to get acquainted over lunch.The firm does all the work, making reservations, clearing the matches with customers.

Under the terms of the court agreement, this will change — though there's a vocal contingent of people online who don't believe it should.
Twitter critics of the court decision are saying that it's the result of a "bully verdict," an assault on religious liberty, or worse.
Others though, are celebrating the move as an act of inclusion for a group that, despite much progress, still faces discrimination and violence on account of who they love.
