Can they still claim to be a Christian organization?
Check it out:
The mega ministry World Vision has announced that it now is allowing employees to be involved in homosexual “marriages,” in an effort to encourage “unity” among Christian supporters.
In an interview with Christianity Today Richard Stearns, who is president of the U.S. branch, said it is a “very narrow policy change” and should be seen by others as “symbolic not of compromise but of [Christian] unity.”
The U.S. branch, based in Federal Way, Wash., has about 1,100 workers.
He said that policy still will require employees to confine their sexual activities to within a marriage, but now that’s been expanded to include same-sex “marriage.”
“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,” Stearns told the newspaper. “It also allows us to treat all of our employees in the same way: abstinence outside of marriage, and fidelity within marriage.”
