World Vision, one of the largest Christian charities in the country, had announced plans to drop their discriminatory policy prohibiting gay Christians from working there -- even if they're married and have the support of their churches.
Then the ugly backlash from the religious right started. So World Vision quickly reversed course and said they're going to continue firing gay employees.
World Vision's president Rich Stearns even apologized profusely for not consulting enough with anti-gay leaders and said "we cannot defer to a small minority of churches and denominations that have taken a different position."
But in addition to support from churches, World Vision also actively courts the support of major corporations who want to curry favor with Christian consumers. Google has two senior executives on World Vision's board of directors, including the company's director of corporate giving.
Google claims to support marriage equality, so now that World Vision is putting anti-gay politics ahead of serving poor and hungry people, Google needs to find new Christian partners who don't discriminate.
