Exodus International Vice President Randy Thomas has followed President Alan Chambers in apologizing to gays and lesbians: When Alan Chambers made his apology to the gay community, I couldn’t have been more supportive. I am so proud of my friend and fully agree with what he shared. I, too, have been taking a personal moral inventory. So […]
Proposition 8 is dead. Following today’s finding that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional, the Supreme Court has now declared it will not hear appeals against California’s decision to strike down Prop 8. This means that same-sex couples in California will remain legally married, entitled to the legal benefits federal government affords all married […]
It’s been a long time coming, but finally, almost eighteen months after the rebranding of Exodus International began, President Alan Chambers has acknowledged the harm he and his organization have done.

In 1998, Exodus International plastered the image of husband and wife John and Anne Paulk on billboards across America as proof of the ex-gay message that “Change Is Possible.” Together, the ex-gay married couple wrote a book, Love Won Out, the tale of how “God’s love helped two people leave homosexuality and find each other.” […]
It’s little wonder that with so few facts on their side, anti-gay activists are forced to make earth-shattering headlines out of unremarkable material. So it is that WorldNetDaily excitedly reveals that a gay activist has, supposedly, challenged pro-gay arguments: But now the homosexual activists have had a wrench thrown in their argument, with the admission […]
Mike Davidson, leader of the Northern Ireland-based Core Issues, has again misrepresented the reasons why he was dismissed from the British Psychodrama Association.
