The Vanco company markets itself to religious organizations. Many churches use their services for processing donations. We surmise that Vanco dropped us because we hold views about marriage, family and human sexuality that are considered “Anti-LGBT.” Our beliefs are the common heritage of all Christian groups. Christian organizations that utilize Vanco’s services may wish to reconsider.

This one strikes home to me since I work in NPOs and have had to make decisions on payment processors.  I think the best solution for now is to use large conglomerates like Authorize.net that process credit card transactions, instead of smaller companies that might succumb more easily to political/social pressure.

But all this is going to wind up at the Supreme Court.  Mark my words.

"Our task today is to tell people — who no longer know what sin is...no longer see themselves as sinners, and no longer have room for these categories — that Christ died for sins of which they do not think they’re guilty." - David Wells
