Ten thousand kids.

A lot has been said about the aftermath of the World Vision fiasco of last week. A LOT. Too much, I'd argue. Everyone has a stance, everyone has an opinion, everyone is going to wax theological about the whole thing for at least another week or two. That's all fine and good. Be my guest. 

Here's what I want you to know from my little corner of the internet. 

I just got off the phone with a few other folks, including Rich Stearns, CEO of World Vision. I had the chance to ask him questions, we heard a bit about the decisions made last week and where things stand now. 

You need to know that 10,000 kids have lost their sponsorships because of the events of last week. TEN THOUSAND CHILDREN. 

Ten thousand kids lost their sponsorships because Christians didn't like it that World Vision wanted to allow legally-married gay people a place of employment. 

 

Ten thousand kids over the war on gay marriage. 

 

I'll just leave it at that & let it sink in.
