Christian group that thought it could cure gays apologizes and shuts down
I’m eagerly awaiting Michele Bachmann’s reaction to THIS:
Exodus International, a Christian group that claimed to be able to “cure” homosexuality though therapy, announced Wednesday that it is shutting down after more than three decades of work following an apology it issued to the LGBT community.
“We’re not negating the ways God used Exodus to positively affect thousands of people, but a new generation of Christians is looking for change – and they want to be heard,” board member Tony Moore said in a press release posted to the Exodus International website.
Just a day earlier, Exodus International’s president, Alan Chambers, wrote a lengthy apology published on the group’s website that lamented his organization’s and the church’s approach to the LGBT community without renouncing his “biblical beliefs” regarding sexuality.
