Via World Vision Child Sponsorships Abandoned: It’s Almost Double What We Thought. My comment there (which will probably get deleted):
The establishment was outraged that gay people might work at a Christian organization
That isn’t true. They were rightly outraged that a Christian organization caved to the LGBTQX lobby and was going to hire people in “same sex marriages.”
And beyond the relational damage, there’s somewhere around 6 million dollars of funding for children living in dire poverty that has now vanished, all because thousands of my fellow Christians couldn’t stomach the idea that the person delivering those clothes or food might be gay.
And there is another false statement. Again, we don’t want to support an organization that either agrees with the pro-LGBTQX / anti-Christ lobby or is too wimpy to stand up to them. I’m sure they had gay employees working there without issue. What they had every right to do was not to employ those living in God-mocking relationships. Then again, the “progressives” aren’t big on religious freedoms these days.
I have had 3 sponsor children — one for 17 years now — and we’ve loved the experience. I was able to visit the one in Kenya 5 times. What a joy! I am going to keep funding them until they are adults. Then I’ll move that portion of my giving to more reliable organizations.
People who shifted from World Vision didn’t go burn their money. They shifted it where they could give it in good conscience. Why are you so harsh and judgmental to them?
I find it ironic that these “progressive” Christians are nearly always pro-legalized abortions and would have cheered for the right to kill these children in the womb — or even partway out of it if you are a “Christian” Leftist*. And they never thought to criticize the pro-LGBTQX lobby — that they are a part of — which was the root cause of all of this. So spare me the crocodile tears.
*The “Christian” Left is far more extreme in their pro-abortion agenda than the average pro-choice person. They insist that life begins at the first breath and insist that Jesus is fine with killing unwanted children until that point.
I realize how ridiculous their views sound and how many people must think I’m making a straw-man argument. But that is just because their own words are so clear and extreme.
“According to the bible, a fetus is not a living person with a soul until after drawing its first breath.”
