Skip to comments.World Vision: Why We're Hiring Gay Christians in Same-Sex Marriages
Posted on 03/24/2014 8:14:00 PM PDT by Coronal
World Vision's American branch will no longer require its more than 1,100 employees to restrict their sexual activity to marriage between one man and one woman.
Abstinence outside of marriage remains a rule. But a policy change announced Monday [March 24] will now permit gay Christians in legal same-sex marriages to be employed at one of America's largest Christian charities.

On the road to perdition.............
One more on the boycott list?
“many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.”
Sadly disappointing, but lacking a reference point. Did they have a virtue code for their claimed-Christian employees in the past? What was it? I.e. have they really gotten worse or is it only now obvious how bad they were?
Oh now “Christian” means “be nice”
This is a bit of a hobby horse with me.
Christendom dumped sexual purity on the ground long before “gay” as an issue nosed into its tent.
Adulterers can’t effectively urge purity on other adulterers. It’s the old beam and speck problem.
they are trying to compartmentalize themselves away from this by saying “it’s a church issue”.
all christians make up the church. we are to be christians 24/7 at work, at home, at church, at play.
it’s a rationalization and cop-out.
the only reason it became a “contested hot topic” is because militan gays turned it into one and Christians turned their backs on God’s Word and began acquiescing.
They should change their name to WORLDLY VISION.
I’ve donated to them in the past... No more!
Also, don’t they know they have given ordinary people an excuse not to give.
Comment of the day!
I would imagine new ministries that do pledge to purity will appear before long.
And maybe it was needed. This is a scandal even by today’s standards.
We’ve donated to World Vision continuously since 1973. We’ll be reconsidering that.
It simply indicates that World Vision has not been a Christian charity for some time.
i think you’ll find small minorities of people - mostly liberals - are the reason for the hetero changes you mention. mostly communists and liberals peddling it as some kind of freedom. no fault divorce to empower and free women. corrupt regular men and women sexually was a communsit manifesto goal. the rank and file regular folks didn’t go for this crap nor were they pushing for it.
they are from the same mindset and militant culture the extremit homosexual advocates are from.
I think missionaries, too, will be wanting a purer clearinghouse. Those who are serious about the spiritual nature of the whole thing.
When sexual purity got winked and nodded at, soon the “gay” were asking “why not” to things they hadn’t even dared to dream about in the past. If you went back 2-3 decades you would have gotten incredulous stares from the homosexual crowd if you had asked it about marriage.
Scratch that one from the donation list. The Bible was not written to reconcile God to man, but to reconcile man to God. We are doomed, but that was foretold.
World Vision HQ is located near Seattle (leftist sty). Wonder what factor that played into their decision?
where does it end?....
I can't in good faith support gay friendly groups or organizations, no matter how "pure" they say they are...
there are lines that can't be crossed...
Whoopee, now the polygamy gang jumps for joy, the guy marrying his daughter and George Michael’s new flame Jean-Pierre the pet gerbil included.
What manner of Godless perversion are these fools peddling? Armageddon Jesus will be targeting phony churches as tier one for the lake of fire.
Gay Christians in legal same-sex marriages?
Can’t walk with the Lord if pronouncing against ‘His Word’
It’s an abomination, putting mans rule over the Lord’s
How about animals? Are sex with animals ok if we get married first?
I am sorry but homosexuality acts are UNBIBLICAL.
If you are accepting of those acts you are unBiblical.
God is NOT tolerant of sin,and homosexuality acts are unBiblical
Homosexuality is a judgment on America.
This needs to be pointed out consistently - homosexuality will not bring judgement upon our country; homosexuality IS the judgement. Romans 1:26 starts with For this reason and continues God gave them up to vile passions. ..men with men committing what is shameful; so this is a judgement upon our society.
It also continues and says that they give approval to others for more and more evil acts. We see this today with our legislatures accepting homosexual marriages and the teaching of it as acceptable in the schools.
Note also that Romans 1:32 points out that those who approve of such conduct are just as guilty as those who engage in it.
The best they could probably hope for would be assent to a statement that the life Jesus desires is marked by purity of (and here would be a reasonable list including sexual purity either in singlehood or monogamous heterosexual marriage). More than that, and they would be taking on the responsibilities of a local church. But it would factor out the flamers.
What an idiot site, you cant even expose these “people” without opening your accounts - no thanks.
One more car runs off the rails.
But abstinence outside marriage remains intact? Why?
Embrace the world, abandon Christ. This is their new corporate motto.
We've been sponsoring continuously since Feb of 92 and have donated extra during emergencies. I'll be looking at alternatives for sure.
It currently is “tolerance” but with the strong “gay push” that can soon slide into approval.
Like I said, World Vision looks like it did not have any purity standards, and this forced someone to ask it the question, and we have the revolting answer.
It’s a judgment and chastisement on the people for sexual laxity. And this laxity began long before “gay” became a visible factor. When the divorce stats for people who claim to be Christian look the same as those for people who don’t, something is rotten in the state of Denmark. Homosexuals were very correct to see hypocrisy though they were wrong to use it as an excuse. Adultery is adultery; this is only a particularly visible kind.
HQ is actually Federal Way, about 15 miles south of Seattle.
There is someone in my church...he is employed at World Vision HQ. He is married to our pastor’s oldest daughter. He has always struck me as a godly man. I am wondering what he’s thinking.
Why? I don't think there will be that many true Christians walking with God when it happens. There will be a lot of false Christians, like those mentioned in the article, who will deny the Rapture because they weren't taken.
The older employees from a more virtuous age would be taken aback, I’d expect.
I'd like to know why as well. Why should Sodomite marriage be elevated above opposite-sex co-habitations?
Hate to read this as support for Sibonginkosi is through World Vision. Perhaps it’s time to remove that support...
It’s possible to sin while saved, but it isn’t anywhere as easy as to sin before being saved. The Lord would generally be chastising them to show them the unprofitability of continuing to sin. Going into one of these “gay marriages” would be almost impossible, but that’s only IMHO.
Does it at all? Maybe the question was never raised!
"Abstinence outside of marriage remains a rule." I guess that you missed that eh?
Same here but we started supporting World Vision in 1995. Our sponsored kid is 18 or 19 years-old at this point and World Vision said most are supported until age 22. This won’t work for us so I think our sponsored kid will lose our support. Damn this sucks.
So it did... well chalk one up for the hypocrites.
Good to know where not to donate. Thanks. (will also need to check for branching out and donation via associations)
There must be some way to keep it up but only until the case can get taken over by a more virtuous group. I mean, like what are they teaching these kids??
Another point about sin before and after salvation is that before salvation we didn’t necessarily know it was sin. After salvation, even though we still sin, we now know that it is a sin and call it such.
Conscience will nag, telling us the Lord wants better, even though we may not yet be up to performing at that level.
Yes, He has way with that nagging business. Sure glad I go to church every Sunday. Keeps my focus on what is important.
