President Of Exodus International No Longer Believes In Curing Homosexuality

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay Gay

This is progress!

Alan Chambers, an "ex-gay" and current president of the organization that believed in conversion therapy to "cure" homosexuality, now recognizes that it is impossible for Exodus International to "pray away the gay."

He was enlightened by an episode of Our America With Lisa Ling which investigated the controversial practice. On Tuesday night, the OWN show's finale revisited the topic and Chambers went one step further. He now believes that homosexuals can indeed go to Heaven and told Lisa Ling:

"Do I think there are people living a gay Christian life who are going to be in heaven with me? I do. If they have a relationship with God."

Watch the extended interview from the episode that questions the practice of praying away the gay (above) to learn how one supporter of the "unethical and potentially harmful" therapy had a significant change of heart.

    Awesome…Loving it…

    There'd be even more progress if lesbians stopped faking hate crimes. What's this last one make it, the third in just as many months? Why won't you ever post about those?

    I believe that homo can be cured; I think it's a genetic disorder that can be isolated and eliminated in the future. And that would be awesome. If parents could prevent their kids from being sexual deviants, why wouldn't they?

    Re: thebigboot – I was wondering why he hasn't covered the lesbian liars either. They are deliberately faking hate crimes and should be prosecuted themselves, right after someone beats the crap out of them for being so stupid. Perez won't post about those carpet munchers because they'll make his pet cause look bad; it demonstrates that homos are unstable liars who will do anything to get attention and make others look bad. Wow … that description fits Perez perfectly.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Oh good there you are - we were all worried about you since it's been about 5 minutes since your last canned anti-homosexual and anti-Perez rant. C'mon now sweetie - your intense fascination about Perez and every LGBT-related story make it so obvious that you're in the closet. Just come out already and admit that you're gay. I'm sure the LGBT community would welcome you and you won't hate yourself so much.

    The therapy he rejects is using hetero porn for conversion. Love is a decision and we all struggle with a sin in our lives but we have to CHOSE to walk away from it and not honor it. Whether that is a sex addiction, same sex addiction, drug addiction, child molestation addiction, shopping addiction it doesn't matter EVEN IF IT FEELS RIGHT OR GOOD. The right path is ALWAYS the most difficult to walk; that's why I lean on my rock and my Peace..Jesus Christ and it is a minute to minute, day to day dependency that I cherish.

    God doesn't exist.
    Nor does heaven.
    So who cares really?

    Re: susieserb – Agree with susieerb. He was speaking specifically about using hetero porn. Sin is sin, and we all fall short of the glory of God. The church needs to do a better job of loving the homosexuals in our community. That does not however mean condoning sin.

    Re: LS – In YOUR opinion it is a sin. It is not a "choice". I kissed my first boy in Kindergarten. I have never had attraction the female sex. I was never abused nor was I ever neglected so that I would "become" homosexual. God says he created man in his own image. God created homosexuals. It is as simple as that. We are not sexual deviants, sinners, etc. And guess what? See you in Heaven along with the murderers, rapists, etc who became saved and follow God.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Ask yourself, "Where do gays come from?" If being gay is genetic, you'll have to sterilize the breeders/carriers to stop the homosexual trait from appearing in their litters. Did you know that parrots (both males and females) start bonding with their unhatched eggs from day one? Parrots, when placed with same sex birds, will form lifetime bonds. I would have to say that successful homosexuality depends more on parental nurturing, or lack thereof, by one or both of the parents. For instance, Teresita's lack of parental control (by leaving it up to the Catholic's to raise her precocious darling) has created an envy-driven, plagiarizing sexual deviant.

    after all the pain and suffering this fucking fool has caused because he wasn't a strong enough gay man to stand up against societies bigotry, i'm sure his final resting place will NOT be in heaven. (like one really exists) i still can't believe him and his beard where allowed to adopt.

    Re: thebigboot – those damn lying lesbians are hindering the progress of lgbt people world wide because. if only they could be like straight people and NEVER lie about anything. especially religious & moral politicians whom never lie or never get caught up in scandals. now those are the people americans should look up to.

    Alan Chambers is just craving for the dick since he deprived himself from it. He'll be back to bouncing up and down on a wet woodie sooner or later getting that bunghole busted wide open.

    Damn, I swear Yes You Bore Me has about 5 accounts on this site. It's not a good luck to be that pressed.

    Lisa Ling is fantastic and this show is really good. I'm glad they did an update on this episode. The guy they followed the first episode made me so sad. Too bad he is still fighting who he is.

    the whole fix the gaqy thing is discredited.

    But note this character still beleives you cant go to heaven unless you lead a "good xtian life"

    In effect he is condemning 5+ billion people to hell

    HIs religiion is still a curse on humanity, with a hateful absolutist type of not God, but the devil
