World Vision: Between God and money, money talks

Apparently, prayer can lead you astray. In reversing its decision to allow the hiring of people in same sex marriages, World Vision’s board dropped a decision that they had discussed and “prayed upon for years,” instead concluding they must “stand by our belief and view of traditional marriage.” [“World Vision retracts decision to hire married gays,” Local News, March 26].

World Vision’s board must have been praying over the wrong question. Instead of standing up for what is right and welcoming people who simply wish to help others, regardless of to whom those people choose to commit, the board has demonstrated that you indeed cannot serve both God and money, and it’s money that talks.

Love thy neighbor … unless he happens to be married to someone’s brother.

Daniel Morris, Renton
