Holy shit! “Pray away the gay” group Exodus International has not only closed up shop, but they’ve actually apologized to LGBT people!
The closure comes less than a day after Exodus released a statement apologizing to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community for years of undue judgment, by the organization and from the Christian Church as a whole.
“Exodus is an institution in the conservative Christian world, but we’ve ceased to be a living, breathing organism. For quite some time we’ve been imprisoned in a worldview that’s neither honoring toward our fellow human beings, nor biblical,” said Alan Chambers, president of Exodus.
I don’t swallow the idea that opposing gay people is not biblical. The book actually calls for the deaths in Exodus, the chapter of the bible after which the organization was named. But still, good on them for coming around. This is progress!
