I was honestly ok with this, right up until they mentioned that 25% of World Vision's budget comes from OUR POCKETS. Yeah, they're a religious group and I don't hold it against them if they only want religious people in that group. It makes sense. But as long as you're getting taxpayer dollars, you should have to follow the rules of a government entity, NOT the rules of a religious entity.

My primary objection to this is really the fact that they GET $300m from the federal government every year. That needs to stop.

What is funny is that they receive government money, but want government out of their way when they discriminate.

Yeah, I'm with Galen. I was totally fine with this until it got to the $300 million in federal money bit.
