The leader of the largest Ex-Gay Fraud business in the world, Exodus International, has wound down the group, admitted that he was always still gay, that nobody becomes ex-gay, but he still continues to advocate not having gay sex.
For years the Fundies tried to sell their private definition of ex-gay: a gay person not currently having gay sex. But they went beyond that too, claiming that with help from an Invisible Sky Monster who was just waiting for an excuse to condemn them, gay people could cease feeling attracted to other men.
Now that the lying, duplicitous, deceitful, self-loathing turd has been forced to admit he was deceitful all along, he thinks everybody should just kiss, platonically of course, and forget. Nobody is upset, right?
'Ex-gay' group says it's shutting down; leader apologizes for 'pain and hurt'
By Erin McClam, Staff Writer, NBC News
A Christian ministry that led the so-called ex-gay movement, which professes to rid people of their homosexuality, has announced that it will shut down, and its leader apologized extensively to gays for causing “pain and hurt.”
The ministry, Exodus International, was founded in 1976 and claims more than 200 branches, churches and counselors in the United States and Canada. It had insisted that people could overcome same-sex attraction through prayer and therapy.
Mainstream psychiatric and medical groups have said that the movement, also known as reparative therapy, is unfounded in science and can be harmful. The American Psychiatric Association said 15 years ago that it could cause depression, anxiety and self-depressive behavior in patients.
I think we should make him surrender Dorothy, then cut him a break. Or maybe he could spend a few thousand hours going on a tour of stupid clubs around the country, telling the muggles in the pews that it was all a lie.
I need to see a sincere effort to undo the harm he has done, except for the gay teens who have already committed suicide because they could not become ex-gay. No need to apologize to those dead teenagers.
