World Vision has managed to stir up two hornets nests this week: first, by deciding to change their policy on hiring married homosexuals, and second, by then backing off and changing that position after the “evangelical” community became totally enraged.
“This World Vision thing has exposed even more of the absolute and utter darkness and ugliness of the whole Christianist empire. They have persecution complexes, but they’re really BAD at being persecuted. They don’t turn the other cheek. They don’t ‘count it all joy.’ They bitch and moan and complain and bellyache.” —Kevin Shoop of Shoopscope.
Herein lies the rub: if the homosexual community fights for a civil right to marriage, they are lauded. If Christians, in turn, fight for the inalienable right given to all men by the Creator to freely practice their faith then they are evil, wicked, homophobic assholes. If Christians dare notice that a professedly “evangelical” organization has implemented a policy that conflicts with the “evangelical” view of Scripture and rightly determine that to continue to support said organization would be inconsistent with their faith, it’s because they think opposing gay marriage is more important than feeding starving children…somewhere (For the love of God, don’t you love children?!).
Note as well that if Christians notice that their inalienable rights are being trampled on, then they’re just imagining things. For God’s sake, we all know how American evangelicals are suffering from a persecution complex, right?
But if Christians express their disagreement with the zeitgeist, it’s because they’re really bad at suffering from (completely imaginary!) persecution.
If you haven’t realized this by now, let this situation be a lesson to you: there can be no disagreeing with the homosexual rights movement. It’s not enough that you tolerate homosexuality any longer; now, you must agree that homosexuality is a good, wholesome thing and celebrate the lifestyle God calls a perversion.
As long as you disagree, anything you do is wrong.
You cannot win.
