Yesterday, I was pleased to announce a Christian charity (World Vision) had made it known, they would now employ Christian, married gay couple's.
But as of today, due to pressure from just about every known faux christian hate group, they have reversed that decision and have revealed themselves to be loathsome bigoted cowards.
Here is the statement they released:
Today, the World Vision U.S. board publicly
reversed its recent decision to change our employment conduct policy.
The board acknowledged they made a mistake and chose to revert to our
longstanding conduct policy requiring sexual abstinence for all single
employees and faithfulness within the Biblical covenant of marriage
between a man and a woman.
We are writing to you our trusted
partners and Christian leaders who have come to us in the spirit of
Matthew 18 to express your concern in love and conviction. You share our
desire to come together in the Body of Christ around our mission to
serve the poorest of the poor. We have listened to you and want to say
thank you and to humbly ask for your forgiveness.
In our board's
effort to unite around the church's shared mission to serve the poor in
the name of Christ, we failed to be consistent with World Vision U.S.'s
commitment to the traditional understanding of Biblical marriage and our
own Statement of Faith, which says, "We believe the Bible to be the
inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God." And we also
failed to seek enough counsel from our own Christian partners. As a
result, we made a change to our conduct policy that was not consistent
with our Statement of Faith and our commitment to the sanctity of
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. We ask that you understand that
this was never the board's intent. We are asking for your continued
support. We commit to you that we will continue to listen to the wise
counsel of Christian brothers and sisters, and we will reach out to key
partners in the weeks ahead.
While World Vision U.S. stands firmly
on the biblical view of marriage, we strongly affirm that all people,
regardless of their sexual orientation, are created by God and are to be
loved and treated with dignity and respect.
Please know that
World Vision continues to serve all people in our ministry around the
world. We pray that you will continue to join with us in our mission to
be "an international partnership of Christians whose mission is to
follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in working with the poor and
oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice, and bear
witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God."
Sincerely in Christ,
Richard Stearns, President
Jim Beré, Chairman of the World Vision U.S. Board
Ahem... "an international partnership of Christians whose mission is to follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in working with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice, and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God."
Unless your a faggot, of course, then Jesus hates you and you should just die and rot in hell.
It's so reassuring to see Fred Phelps legacy still abounds in the loathing, venomous embrace of fascist haters.
"Treat us with dignity and respect" my hairy Ulf ass!
