World Vision Reverses Decision To Hire Christians in Same-Sex Marriages

Letter: 'We failed to be consistent with [our] commitment to the traditional understanding of biblical marriage and our own Statement of Faith.'

World Vision Reverses Decision To Hire Christians in Same-Sex Marriages

World Vision U.S.

Two days after announcing it would hire Christians who are in same-sex marriages, World Vision U.S. has reversed its decision.

“The last couple of days have been very painful,” organization president Rich Stearns told reporters this evening. “We feel pain and a broken heart for the confusion we caused for many friends who saw this policy change as a strong reversal of World Vision's commitment to biblical authority, which it was not intended to be.”

“We've had a lot of feedback from a lot of people. But the feedback we've paid special attention to is from our many trusted partners, [including many church leaders who] came to us out of sincere concern and love for World Vision,” he said. “Rather than creating more unity, we created more division, and that was not the intent of the board or myself. The board acknowledged that the policy change we made was a mistake, and we believe that you've helped us to see that … and we're asking you to forgive us for that mistake.”
