    Here's the Thinkprogress link: Leading 'Ex-Gay' Organization Closes, Apologizes To LGBT Community | ThinkProgress

    If a link to think progress makes you whine and you cannot seem to get past the name Thinkprogress here is another link to a blog: BREAKING: Alan Chambers Announces Exodus International Is Shutting Down | Truth Wins Out

    If you also cry about "random bloggers" as some sort of reason for dismissal here is their actual website: http://exodusinternational.org/2013/06/exodus-international-to-shut-down/


    If you also find another reason to cry about it. Go cry about it in the corner

    "Love unhindered". See when I read the Bible that's not the message I got.

    But hey, whatever destroys the American Family is a good thing and Homosexuality and Depravity does just that.

    Where the radical RW fundamentalist Christians go wrong is they focus on this sin to persecute. God say that all sin is sin, lying is no better or worse than homosexuality. However, they've focused on it and have shown their hypocrisy.

    It's time for them to wise-up now.

    From Exodus International's web site:

    That took a lot of courage, and a great deal of pride had to be swallowed.

    Judge not lest ye be judged.

    St. Paul excoriates masturbators and homosexuals in the same breath. So when you measure fags, you are measuring yourself, too.

    Think Progress, telling us what George Soros has to say today.

    Chambers no longer believes that reparitive therapy works or is necessary. He will continue his ministry in other areas.

    Dunno why exactly they would apologize for their beliefs.. unless rather than just a choice, they are considering it a disorder where it is not therapy that is needed but treatment like other disorders... because it is not a genetic trait or new genetic sex make-up

    I've never heard of this group before. But then again, I've never believed homos could be re-programmed, so I never paid attention to which organizations I should send all the homophobes.

    Homosexuals cannot be reprogrammed any more than heterosexuals can be reprogrammed. The ones who claim they have been "cured" of being gay, were never gay to begin with. They were just conditioned to believe they were gay. At some point, they recognize that they weren't and looked for some kind of therapy. They didn't need therapy.

    There is nothing that says Chambers has suddenly become pro gay, he just recognized that his form of therapy was unnecessary and didn't work.

    Nobody in this country should live in fear for what they believe in. And people say gay folks are the victims. Guess again.

    I like the idea that everyone is a prodigal. Makes sense to me.
