World Vision reverses gay hiring decision

FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (BP) — World Vision U.S. is reverting to its longstanding conduct policy of requiring faithfulness within the biblical covenant of marriage between a man and a woman, expressing regret with an earlier decision to hire legally married gay Christians.

World Vision U.S. President Richard Stearns and board chairman Jim Bere announced in a letter the reversal today, just two days after drawing ire from the Christian community by saying World Vision would begin hiring legally married gays.

“Today, the World Vision U.S. board publicly reversed its recent decision to change our employment conduct policy,” they said in the letter. “The board acknowledged they made a mistake and chose to revert to our longstanding conduct policy requiring sexual abstinence for all single employees and faithfulness within the Biblical covenant of marriage between a man and a woman.”
