World Vision’s Rich Stearns: ‘A bad decision, but we did it with the right motivations’

In an attempt to create unity, World Vision managed to poke a hornet’s nest around the issue of same-sex marriage. President Rich Stearns openly acknowledges the mistakes the relief organization made while flip-flopping on the issue.

On Monday (March 24), the World Vision announced that it would allow employees to be in same-sex marriages. Within 48 hours, the $1 billion Christian organization reversed course, saying that it had made a mistake. The backlash illustrated how evangelicals will continue to wrestle with a growing cultural acceptance of same-sex marriage.

In an interview with Religion News Service on Thursday, Stearns suggested that the number of sponsors lost was under but around 5,000. Those who sponsor a child pay $35 each month, so the loss could have tallied up to $2.1 million a year. ...

I agree Chris! No way this organization is getting any of the money God gives me.
It's kind of like the movies where someone is holding a gun to somebody and pulls the trigger and all you hear is a click. No crime has been committed but you now know that the person was gonna kill.
Really is too bad how this sin is accepted by many so called Christians

People power? Or from a higher authority?
The fact is that World Vision has shown its true colors - Liberal and therefore unbiblical.
The way things are moving in society it would not be to much of a surprise if they try again in a couple of years time.
Christianity in the modern culture has been reduced to nothing but charity,feed people and you can do as you please and God will overlook the rest because salvation is a full belly and nothing else.

I have heard people say that America is a Christian nation because it feeds people,never mind the fact that we have slaughtered millions of unborn children,promote evry kind of filth known to man and our number one cultural export is porn....yet we are....."Christians" because we feed people.

"Within an hour of the reversal, the call volume dropped. The angry calls stopped and dropped to a much lower level. Some of the sponsors called back to reinstate their sponsorships."

The above is a quote from the Rich Stearns interview with Religious News Service on March 27th after the reversal of World Vision's decision to allow employees to be in same-sex marriages. I highlighted that particular quote because it reveals that a great many (if not most) of the sponsors of World Vision are conservative evangelicals; if that was not so the "angry" call volume would have increased after the reversal; the criticism from the pro-gay media will increase.

That gives me two things to rejoice about:
1. It destroys the modern myth and lie that conservative evangelicals do not care for the poor and needy. That blatant lie is put forth despite seeing that many of the biggest hospitals, orphanages, missions, food pantries, homeless shelters and other charities are all run and sponsored by conservative religious institutions; one can add in the many community churches also.
2. The other reason for rejoicing is this shows that there is a rather large silent remnant who still hold to the clear teachings of the Word of God and true testimony of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
