Same old story, same old act: A song for World Vision, and for Jesus Jerks everywhere

We’ve given each other some hard lessons lately
But we ain’t learnin’
We’re the same sad story that’s a fact
One step up and two steps back

RNS: “World Vision reverses decision on same-sex marriage, ‘a mistake’

Christian relief organization World Vision has reversed its decision after announcing this week that it will no longer define marriage as between a man and a woman in its employee conduct manual.

The earlier decision was a groundbreaking change for the Christian institution that came with heavy criticism from evangelicals. After its initial announcement, the Assemblies of God had urged its members to consider dropping support.

Ryan Reed tweeted on Wednesday (March 26), “My wife works for WV. In today’s staff meeting Stearns announced that so far 2000 kids dropped.”

World Vision’s child sponsorships are $35 a month, which means the organization could have lost at least $840,000 in revenue over the longterm.

World Vision’s letter announcing this retreat into the shared dishonesty of institutional evangelicalism is one of the most pitiable, groveling, sniveling profiles in cowardice I’ve ever seen. You can read it at the link above.

Score one for the bullies.

Southern Baptist leaders Al Mohler and Russell Moore responded favorably to World Vision’s reversal and retreat back inside the communal lie.
