Well as far as I can make out this is political or playing the game

Whether this article is true or just a ploy to win readers and sell a product is another matter



As  they state
Quote
?I want to be clear that we have not endorsed same-sex marriage, but we have chosen to defer to  the authority of local churches on this issue,?

And something that might give the game away, is quoted as

Quote
No doubt World Vision, which receives tens of millions from the federal government totaling about 18 percent of its budget ($174 million in 2011), has accurately calculated that it?s so large that it can absorb any significant drop-off in donations from traditional Evangelicals.

So no doubt "this stated charity" has an interest in the government and wants this interest to continue, so in playing to their flute ...they can continue to attract support for many years to come

They have a dropout clause by stating
Quote
to defer to  the authority of local churches on this issue,

 Luke 7:32 They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to each other: "'We played the pipe for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not cry.'

[This above is in context of three parties, 1. pharisees [political] Johns followers and Christ's. Whereas the disciples followed Jesus and John to John, the pharisees mourned with those who mourned and wept with those who wept , but their hearts were far from God , as their interests were for their own advancement]

Thus they attract money from the government by playing to them - thus they employ people who otherwise might be out of work - thus they support millions through these donations which in turn come from "anyone and anything"

Government funding as far as I am aware comes out of the populations pockets and if we retrack these donations back to their original owners will might find the "common citizen" from all walks and lifestyles

So to me if we are to draw a line we must go all the way or not at all


To me the issue is about funding from government and the "mentioned charity"looking after its interests

In the same way as some "investment companies have an interest in the Church"


Probably if you dig deeper into this you might find a few hidden facts that have not been disclosed Mark 4:22 For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open.

Well the latest on this story is that the people who supply 82% of there funding have protested about the dening of the bible, world vision have changed there tune again and retracted their earlier statement.

What we can learn from this fiasco is that it is worth protesting.

Question now is will we actualy do it?
