Uganda, Kenya, and World Vision

In Uganda, laws were passed this year that punish gay "repeat offenders" with life in prison.

In Kenya, one can be imprisoned for 14 years for having same-sex relations...  The laws are not usually enforced, but there are eight pending court cases.

Thus it's not surprising that World Vision took a stand in favor of recognizing the status of its employees in same-sex marriages.  

What a powerful statement for this well-known international aid organization to make.

World Vision was standing up for the oppressed and those in prison--exactly what Jesus would do.

But Jesus didn't have to worry about a budget of $1 billion to support or how to manage a staff that employs 40,000 people in 100 countries.

Once the donors, large and small, started dropping out, World Vision caved.
