World Vision backtracks and decides not to hire people in same-sex marriages. Was this due to the realization they were about lose millions of financial donors or because they were truly convicted that this policy violated Scripture? Who knows...but either way we should continue to pray for them and for the millions of hungry and needy children around the world who depend on organizations like WV for food, water and clothing.
Statement by WV: UPDATE (5:05 p.m.): “The board acknowledged it made a mistake and chose to revert to our longstanding policy requiring sexual abstinence for all single employees and faithfulness within the Biblical covenant of marriage between one man and one woman. … We are brokenhearted over the pain and confusion we have caused many of our friends, who saw this decision as a reversal of our strong commitment to Biblical authority.”
