It's just not worth it. What seems to be lost on Rachel and her followers is that they were making a point about gay marriage just as much as Evangelicals were. Apparently when Evangelicals do it, it is hateful and persecuting. When liberal ...http://www.devinrose.heroicvirtuecreations.com/blog/2014/03/28/severing-ties-with-world-vision/

Genesis 33:4 This has long struck me as one of the most beautiful verses in the Bible. I can't read it without being moved. But we all feel the power of it.
