Learning from the Sin of Sodom

01 Mar

A great Op-Ed piece from Nicholas Kristof in today’s New York Times:

A pop quiz: What’s the largest U.S.-based international relief and development organization?

It’s not Save the Children, and it’s not CARE — both terrific secular organizations. Rather, it’s World Vision, a Seattle-based Christian organization (with strong evangelical roots) whose budget has roughly tripled over the last decade.

Read the whole column here… and then come back and comment.

    <p>… the great sin of the people of Sodom wasn?t so much that they were promiscuous or gay as that they were ?arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.? (Ezekiel 16:49.)</p><p>Hmm. Imagine if sodomy laws could be used to punish the stingy, unconcerned rich!</p><p>I REALLY like Kristoff! And, Mr. Stearns, what a wonderful idea to frame the rich in terms of truly being Sodomites!</p>
