Try to comprehend this: a charity overturns a policy prohibiting gays to be hired in the expectation that more people would donate if they took a more tolerant stance.
What happened instead? Almost immediately after the change was announced, the Assemblies of God (USA) urged its one million members (three million adherents) to discontinue their support for the organization.
Christian sympathy and charity know no limits - within a tightly-defined paradigm. Stray from it at your own peril.
Two Days Later, World Vision Reverses Policy That Allowed Hiring Of Gays : The Two-Way : NPR
World Vision U.S. changed course on Wednesday, saying it would return to its policy of not hiring Christians in gay marriages.
The Washington-state-based charity caused an uproar among its supporters when it announced on Monday that based on the changes many churches were making, it would allow the hiring of avowed Christians who had been legally married to someone of the same sex.
World Vision U.S. president Richard Stearns explained the organization was not endorsing gay marriage. Instead, gay marriage would join a series of issues — like divorce, remarriage, baptism, female priests — that many Christian churches disagree on.
"Changing the employee conduct policy to allow someone in a same-sex marriage who is a professed believer in Jesus Christ to work for us makes our policy more consistent with our practice on other divisive issues," he told Christianity Today. "It also allows us to treat all of our employees the same way: abstinence outside of marriage, and fidelity within marriage."
