One of the downsides of recording daily radio segments for Religious Right activists like Matt Barber and Mat Staver is that they often record several at a time with plans to air them on some future date. Normally, that is not a problem, but sometimes they record segments about an issue that has changed dramatically between the time of the recording and the time of the airing, as was the case with today’s broadcast in which they furiously attacked the Christian charity World Vision for announcing that legally married gay Christians would be welcome in the organization.
World Vision quickly reversed course but Barber and Staver had already recorded today’s commentary in which Barber said the organization had clearly fallen under Satan’s deception on the issue of gay marriage:
More of a concern than their compromising their values is that they’re compromising non-negotiable Biblical truth and Biblical principles.
The President of World Vision USA, Richard Stearns, has said in the past quote ‘no one ever died of gay marriage.’ Well, I would introduce him to the plague of AIDS.
The spiritual warfare is palpable, Mat. And the Father of Lies is using this issue to deceive the multitudes and many within the church are falling under his deception; World Vision is one organization that has clearly fallen under his deception.
