World Vision reverses decision on gay married employees

26 Mar

Not sure if they truly had a change of heart, or realized how much money they stood to lose, but World Vision has now reversed its recent decision to permit gay employees to be ‘married’:

After days of backlash from Evangelicals, World Vision, an international nonprofit ministry, has reversed its decision to allow those in same-sex marriages to be employed.

“Today, the World Vision U.S. board publicly reversed its recent decision to change our national employment conduct policy,” the Christian humanitarian organization said in a letter to supporters Wednesday. “The board acknowledged they made a mistake and chose to revert to our longstanding conduct policy requiring sexual abstinence for all single employees and faithfulness within the Biblical covenant of marriage between a man and a woman.”

Next step should be to clean house, and fire all those responsible for their previous, wicked decision.

Of course, that’s highly unlikely to happen…

IMO, Christians still do well to consider other charities that have never considered endorsing gay marriage.

    They realized how much money they were going to lose – that is, almost all of it. Stay strong, Church.

    The place must be honeycombed with fifth columnists.

    Money talks, apparently.

    @ Samson, Novaseeker: Indeed.

    @ Peter Blood: Yes, which is why I still wouldn’t trust them.

    World Vision intact… For now. American Christians have already lost the gay marriage war.

    Indeed. Despite the hold-up in Michigan, no doubt that’s just temporary, and Michigan will fall, too, and eventually courts will force it on every state…

    Will:

    In the end, World Vision’s reversal on this issue won’t matter. Enough pressure will be brought to bear, enough time will pass. Other Christian organizations will cave, and like dominoes they’ll fall.

    That may well be, indeed. Alas.

    Well, as I said, there are other charities, and there are church-based charities, which are less likely to cave. Christians would do well to consider them, instead.
