World Vision Board Member Resigns Over Gay Uproar
AP ^ | April 3, 2014 | Staff

World Vision board member has resigned in protest after the Christian aid group quickly reversed its decision to hire employees in same-sex marriages.

Jacquelline Fuller, director of corporate giving for Google Inc., said in an email Wednesday to The Associated Press that she remains a "huge fan" of the group's work on behalf of the poor, but she resigned Friday "as I disagreed with the decision to exclude gay employees who marry."

gay people can’t marry in the eyes of God.

And issue that some tend to take care if given enough time and money. :)

Of course, they’ll never be the sex that they wish to be. It is impossible.

I’m sure she left for her very own reasons. many so-called Christians today have abandonded the Christ-like principal that you can love the sinner while still holding firm to the Law.

"Jacquelline Fuller, director of corporate giving for Google Inc"

NOW...we have a clue as to who was trying to steer this thing where. More lefty top-down activism.

Out of the world’s population, 2-3% are considered to be actively homosexual.

Out of this number a small percentage want to “get married”.

Out of this number x number consider themselves Christians.

Out of this number y number want to work for a charitable organization.

Out of this number a small subset want to work for World Vision specifically.

Just HOW many people are actually affected by maintaining the policy as it was???

Didn't Ms. Fuller realize before she accepted the board appointment that World Vision ostensibly holds that the Bible is the inerrant word of God? And did Ms. Fuller not know before accepting her board position that the word of God calls homosexuality sin?

1) How long has Ms. Fuller been on the WV board?

2) And why is does she suddenly feel compelled to resign?

3) Why did she accept the WV board position in the first place?

4) Without trying to impugn her motives, but did Ms. Fuller join the WV board with the hope or intent of changing their foundational tenets? In other words, was Ms. Fuller motivated to be an agent of change rather than to be of service to the board?

Anyone who supports this abominable and disease-ridden lifestyle has no place in any Christian organization. You have to wonder what is in her closet.

She evidently feels homersexuals are more important than poor people.................................

It was the same with the wide-eyed disbelief that the media just couldn't believe that Chick-Fil-A (a company closed on Sundays) held to traditional values.

Yep, and my feeling is that the more you know about the under belly of World Vision, the less you would ever be inclinded to participate. Just short of SCAM territory.

Being a distanced member of this population, in America, 2% maybe, worldwide 2% is wildly inflated.

Vast majority despise Christianity and are only apart of it and charitable organizations to change them.

Don’t let them.

yeah, that was stunning that the CEO of a company who had never sold so much as a single waffle fry on the Sabbath would believe in the sanctity of marriage…..shocking I say, just shocking….

The Bible calls it ‘vile affections’ not love.

The fact that this leftist was on the board to begin with doesn’t speak well of the spiritual health of World Vision.

That’s what concerns me.

Now, one can rightfully say that Jesus associated with sinners and tax collectors, but Jesus did not invite them into His inner circle until they demonstrated a repentant heart (Matthew).

personally the entire board ought to step down.

they all voted for it. they allsaid they “prayed for years” over this subject before voting unanimously to approve it. they defended their decision by the fact they had said they prayed earnestly about this for years before voting on the change.

they ALL need to go.

One article I read said that World Vision acknowledged making an error of judgment in changing this policy in America. I still have not heard what their policy is elsewhere.

Was America the anomaly for rejecting same sex marriage or for supporting it?

The entire board was the source, their original release said this was something they had been wanting to do for years

Pray for her true conversion to Christianity (because she apparently doesn’t believe in Jesus), and be glad that she’s gone from this organization.

Good - every board member who voted for the policy to hire gays should resign.

Reading the lines before those scenes, it was because there 'were many who followed him' (Mark 2) and also that it was because they wanted to hear what he had to say (can't recall which book, but I read it either in a Daily Mass or a reading from the Breviary/Office of the Hours).

So basically, the sinners can to him because their ears and hearts were at least open to repentance. Of course, the Pharisees missed that point. I think we need to point this out when people use the argument you referred to. It's not like Jesus didn't care about them - he came for sinners and tax collectors to preach, not to hang out with.

While many educational administrators may feel like martyrs, I have yet to encounter any who were “christ-like”.
