    Seems to me the issues arise from the OT, and a rather picky nut job named Leviticus.

    These guys should stop hiring anyone who eats shellfish or wears interesting clothes too.
    If we take the words attributed to Christ in the canonical gospels alone (as certain eighteenth-century rational deists named Jefferson were wont to do), He, in all His divine profundity, never mentions homosexuality.

    Of course, he mentions a lot of other moral commandments that are equally as nonsensical and unrealistic as a proscription on a 21st-century charity hiring homosexuals.

    He said plenty about compromising your faith.

    What Does the Bible Say About Compromise?

    "Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry"
    32 “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.
    Matt. 10:32-33

    Precisely. And so World Vision should make it a policy not to compromise, and ask all applicants whether or not they've ever lusted in their hearts, as President Carter would say. If they say yes, they should be barred from employment.

    No compromise, even unto the gates of Hell.

    I see....so Jesus did not ask you to hate homosexuals...you simply decided to do it and attribute it to him.

    Par for the course.

    I guess you never had sex out of wedlock, skipped a shower, showed affection in public, or wanted anything?

    Possible the most ignorant posting I have ever seen. At least if you are going to attack Christianity, know a little about it.

    Wait a sec here.....you ignorantly assume I do not know about the religion I grew up in, then accuse me of attacking it for calling YOU out?

    Either you believe you ARE Christianity, or You are no longer interested in discussion/debate and decided to get nasty to avoid it.

    In order for us to discuss religion, you would have to have at least a little knowledge concerning the subject. Judging by your previous postings it is obvious you don't know what you are talking about. Besides, I have better things to do that to argue with someone who will not see the truth.

    I admitted to being a sinner earlier. A horible sinner. I'm trying to rid my life of sin.

    Compromising my beliefs is one of those sins.

    Insofar as you see fit to deny one kind of what you call 'sinner' employment, why not another? Why is it 'compromise' for this charity to hire homosexuals, but not for them to admire an admitted lust-ridden sexual beast like yourself?

    (If you see fit to flagellate yourself emotionally and mutilate yourself spiritually through the false concept of 'sin' - engineered as an idea to control men to their very cores - that's on you. Not everyone loathes themselves as Christians do.)
