Victory shows the cultural battle over homosexuality-based “marriage” is far from over, says LaBarbera

THANK WORLD VISION! The American branch of WORLD VISION has listened to you and thousands of outraged Americans and reversed its sellout on “gay marriage.” TAKE ACTION: Call or write World Vision USA at 888-511-6548 [send an online message HERE] and THANK them for reversing their previously announced policy of recognizing  employees’ unbiblical homosexual “marriages.”  You can read AFTAH’s original press release on World Vision’s marriage sellout–which received wide coverage [e.g., see Charismanews.com]–HERE

Dear AFTAH Readers,

Yesterday I brought you bad news; today I bring you great news: World Vision is reversing its unbiblical cave-in of recognizing employees’ (legal) homosexual “marriages”!  YOUR CALLS, joined with thousands of others from across the USA, made the difference, as World Vision’s board recognized that it had made a gigantic mistake departing from Christian Truth. It is impossible to simultaneously honor Jesus Christ while recognizing and incentivizing sin and sexual perversion. Thank you to all who called WV to defend Truth!  WORLD magazine reports:

World Vision reverses gay marriage decision

Board member says the organization never meant to undermine the authority of Scripture

By JAMIE DEAN, Posted March 26, 2014, 03:40 p.m.

UPDATE (5:05 p.m.): World Vision released a statement (see below) this afternoon confirming it has reversed its decision to allow its American branch to hire employees in same-sex marriages:

“The board acknowledged it made a mistake and chose to revert to our longstanding policy requiring sexual abstinence for all single employees and faithfulness within the Biblical covenant of marriage between one man and one woman. … We are brokenhearted over the pain and confusion we have caused many of our friends, who saw this decision as a reversal of our strong commitment to Biblical authority.”

We now wait to see what the new World Vision policy will be, and how they will handle the inevitable (media-magnified) outrage by LGBT activists. And I want to make clear that we are only commending World Vision’s return to biblical faithfulness on this issue.

MARRIAGE BATTLE FAR FROM OVER: I was just interviewed by SRN News (the national Christian-owned Salem Radio Network) and my message was this: the righteous turnaround at World Vision shows that Culture War over homosexuality and “gay marriage” is not nearly over. The media–who are sort of a huge PR firm for the ‘Gay’ Lobby–want you to give up.  They keep telling Americans that legal homosexual “marriage” in all 50 states is “inevitable”–forget the more than 30 states that passed pro-natural marriage amendments or statewide referenda in support of genuine marriage (one-man, one-woman).

The Left-dominated opinion-molders and pro-“gay” pundits are wrong about marriage. (Besides, when have the media been RIGHT about anything important? Remember how they shilled for Obama?) The American people, and especially those who seek to honor God, do NOT want to treat two men or two women in a homosexual union as if it were a real marriage.

Thanks for not giving in to the Gay Thought Police and standing up for what’s right. The fight ahead is long and difficult, but we must be more committed to defending Truth than the homosexual activists are to pushing their lies. God bless you. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
