World Vision: The organizations’ ‘Komen’ moment

Shame on World Vision for selling its soul to the hypocritical Christian bigots with money [“World Vision’s reversal on marriage policy for gay workers is start of a conversation,” Opinion Northwest, March 28].

I have always looked upon it positively until now. The golden rule should have remained in place treating married gay couples as you would any other married couple. Discrimination has no place and is inconsistent with its mission.

Now World Vision has a “Komen” moment on the wrong side of history. Shame on it and those who pressured World Vision to cave in to the ignorant bigots to retract the short-lived enlightened policy change.
