Worthy Christian News » World Vision Reverses, Recovers from Gay Policy Shift

By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– World Vision's decision to allow same-sex marriages for its own employees was short-lived after its supporters threatened to withhold any future donations, according to Religion News Service.

Since the same-sex policy change and subsequent reversal, the organization lost about one percent of its donor base, so World Vision is now asking its remaining staff — as former Google employees Jacquelline Fuller and John Park have left — to affirm that marriage is only between a man and a woman.

However, the policy changes created confusion for the organization's international affiliates even though those changes only applied to World Vision's U.S. employees; some affiliates even took measures to distance themselves from World Vision's same-sex agenda, which in parts of Asia, Africa and South America could be considered unbiblical.

As a humanitarian relief group, all World Vision employees have to attend church, affirm to a statement of religious faith — such as the Apostles' Creed — and sign onto a policy of personal conduct that includes abstinence outside of marriage.

    I am amongst those donors. Sadly, we had to inform our four sponsored children that we felt led to withdraw our support due to the policy shift. The current policy was reversed after others also voted with their pocketbooks. On top of having a lawless President, it is too much for us Christians to see our formerly esteemed leaders of charities ignoring the Gospel to exhibit enmity with God as the try to show "friendship with the world" giving as it were, a wink and a nod to unmarried Couples cohabiting & receiving benefits only married couples should have. I'm glad there are others holding fast to the principles of our faith. We live in a strongly secular society that tempts even leadership to "go along to get along". These are the times that try men's souls! Turning from our wicked ways is essential & urgent.
