Exodus Inter. is finally realizing that once you like dick, like diamonds, it’s forever…
The president Exodus International, Alan Chambers says his group is moving away from the idea that sexual orientation can be permanently changed.
Really Alan? Are you finally realizing the power of the cock?
This week, 600 Exodus ministers and followers are gathering for the group’s annual conference, held this year in a Minneapolis suburb. The group’s president, Alan Chambers, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the conference would highlight his efforts to dissociate the group from the controversial practice usually called ex-gay, reparative or conversion therapy.
“I do not believe that cure is a word that is applicable to really any struggle, homosexuality included,” said Chambers, who is married to a woman and has children, but speaks openly about his own sexual attraction to men. “For someone to put out a shingle and say, ‘I can cure homosexuality’ — that to me is as bizarre as someone saying they can cure any other common temptation or struggle that anyone faces on Planet Earth.”
Chambers has cleared books endorsing ex-gay therapy from the Exodus online bookstore in recent months. He said he’s also worked to stop member ministries from espousing it.
Chambers said the ministry’s emphasis should be simply helping Christians who want to reconcile their own particular religious beliefs with sexual feelings they consider an affront to scripture. For some that might mean celibacy; for others, like Chambers, it meant finding an understanding opposite-sex partner.
“I consider myself fortunate to be in the best marriage I know,” Chambers said. “It’s an amazing thing, yet I do have same-sex attractions. Those things don’t overwhelm me or my marriage; they are something that informs me like any other struggle I might bring to the table.”
I think this is just one step toward Exodus finally accepting the truth that they have known all along, the “ex-gay” movement is a complete lie and fabrication that dangerously and with concern, served to only harm people. And i bet in a year it will be turned into a gay christian group for hook ups. Oh wait, it already is
I look at people like Chambers as sad, self loathing and pathetic. I would like to know what he is thinking when he is screwing his wife, I am sure it is dicks that are dancing through his brain and not women’s tits. To live your life with out truly excepting and embracing who you are is utterly sad and the real “sin”.
Groups like this should be illegal. And Chambers should look in the mirror everyday and be ashamed of the dangerous lies and falsehoods he has led people to believe over the years.
