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. The ex-gay therapist, whose group effectively promotes the work of NARTH in the UK, has complained before that his membership was revoked without a hearing. In his latest missive, to the Organisation […]
On the heels of Dave Rattigan’s recent post about the BBC’s “Gay to Straight” documentary, Brian Tashman of Right Wing Watch finds conversion therapist Floyd Godfrey on the Linda Harvey show with an interesting take on the nature of homosexuality. You may want to read that post first to prepare you for Godfrey’s inanity in this one. […]
Exodus president Alan Chambers returned to the Oprah Winfrey Network’s Our America this week, a year after he first spoke to host Lisa Ling on the show. By all accounts, the episode contained little new, simply re-screening most of the 2011 broadcast alongside new interview footage of Chambers. Nor did most of the new footage say […]
A doctrinal statement released by the new Restored Hope Network last week seemed to downplay potential differences between it and Exodus International, particularly on the reparative therapy controversy. But a new statement by Andy Comiskey sets the new ex-gay organization at odds with Exodus. In a letter to supporters of his Desert Stream Ministries, Comiskey […]
The Restored Hope Network released its official doctrinal statement Tuesday. The first tenet of belief is a fairly direct response to Exodus International’s recent claims that being gay does not exclude a person from heaven: 1. Sexual purity is a life-and-death matter. Sexual holiness for Christians matters to such an extent that a sexually immoral life […]
This year has seen Exodus International’s president Alan Chambers drop support for the brand of change therapy called reparative therapy. In response, the therapy’s chief proponent, Dr. Joeseph Nicolosi, has accused Chambers of misrepresenting the practice. Some of what we present here has appeared elsewhere recently, but we are now able to provide a more […]
Little information has yet been made public about Restored Hope Network, the new ex-gay organization that seems designed as an alternative to Exodus International. We do know that its founders include two of Exodus’s most outspoken critics, Robert Gagnon and Andy Comiskey, who have recently taken Exodus President Alan Chambers to task for both his […]
NARTH co-founder Joseph Nicolosi has called on Exodus International head Alan Chambers to take back criticisms he has made of reparative therapy. In particular, Nicolosi, the chief theorist and practitioner of reparative therapy, took exception at the following remarks, which Chambers made on Facebook: As for Reparative Therapy, I do not support it. I don’t […]
