World Vision Retracts Decision on Employees in Same-Sex Marriages

world-vision-HEAD-smThe Christian relief group World Vision has reversed its controversial decision to hire employees who are in same-sex marriages. Earlier this week, World Vision had announced it was changing its employment policy to allow Christians in same-sex marriages to work there. The announcement set off a furor among the group’s evangelical supporters, and a number of donors pledged to pull their sponsorships. After two days of withering criticism, World Vision’s board reversed its original decision and issued an apology.
