I need to cancel my membership, when I signed up to be a sponsor I was unaware of compassion's policies on same-sex marriage my wife and I are both donors and cannot in good conscience give our dollars to company that supports discrimination against gay families we also cannot tolerate that we must sensor our letter to the child was selected because we are gay family. Certainly sad. Will find another organization to sponsor ...... donor number 07655940

Eileen,

I sincerely apologize for the feelings of frustration, hurt, and discrimination that we have caused. CompassionInternational is a non-profit, child development agency that works withexisting church-based organizations. Our church partners are often much more conservative than we are here in the West. As a mutual and respectful partnership, we allow them to decide what is appropriate for their children.Compassion does not set criteria for who may or may not sponsor. However, we try to make it clear in all of our communications the nature of our organization. Messages that condone sexual relationships outside of the heterosexual marriage covenant are not consistent with the values and beliefs shared with our partnering churches.

As you requested, I have cancelled your sponsorship and made your child available for another sponsor.
