Make no mistake! Charities are big business in America! From both ends! Often the giver is just trying to “buy” his way to heaven (a business with God), since major religions in America consider “works of charity” as a means of Salvation, and, obviously, they want that deduction in their Tax Return (a business with government)! The receiver and the distributor of the donations is a business because it is a business. The fact that they are called not-for-profit doesn’t mean “charitable”. They have executives that earn a salary, expenses, employees, although they bear names with words Christian, Christ, Jesus, or Christian related words, like Vision, Aid, Help, etc. they are and operate as a business. They are not a local Church; not a congregation upon which one can exercise close supervision and monitor how the funds are employed and where one may be safe that his beliefs and conscience is being respected.
So, I know, the reader is intelligent and will think, I know, that you want to call Charities such as World Vision a business in order to defend their stupid executive decisions. Well, who else makes executive decisions but a business? Who else decides and un-decides in an issue because of the fear of loss… of revenues, such as a…. guess… a business?
As a business they have clients or customers! Donors of these organizations are no more than clients or customers!
Let’s say I am a customer of a hamburger joint and I am a fierce defender of animals at the brink of extinction and I just adore them. One day I find that the hamburger I eat in that place contains or is totally from a source of animal that I so adore and would not like to see them extinct? If I would decide to take my business to another hamburger joint for the sole reason that I no longer want to support a place that uses meat which I don’t approve and kill animals that I love, am I bullying that first joint? Well, according to the logic of a certain left-wing publication, yes!
If you write accusing me of comparing gays with animals, please, spare me the red herring… and the making of a fool of yourself. I can however point to many people who do within the gay community and post their argument here…
My final question for reflection: Why is it okay for gays to call for a boycott of Chick-fil-A on a remark from their executive in expressing his views, thus risking the livelihood of so many innocent good people who are employed by them, and it is considered bullying and a grave sin worthy of stopping calling a group “Christians” because of their objection to World Vision’s business decision to hire or not gays?
Disclaimer: Judging my position on the issue of gays for what I post here may lead to to slander.
