Gay? Ex-Gay? Exodus International Conference Starts Today!

Post image for Gay? Ex-Gay? Exodus International Conference Starts Today!

Are you gay? Fighting those nasty homosexual urges? Do you find yourself attracted to members of your same gender? Do you believe that it is morally and spiritually wrong and that, even though God created you in his image, he was having an off-day when you were born?

Fear not! Exodus International, one of the largest so-called “ex-gay ministries” has a conference just for you, and it’s starting today! Just head on down to North Carolina, pay $325 to register (food and lodging not included) for four days of fun (but not too much!) and frolic (but not that kind!) and embrace (not that kind!) the word of God — which tells you how evil you really are.

Let’s be frank, folks. If you’re gay, bisexual, lesbian, transgender, it’s OK. Embrace it.

If you believe in God, he loves you, just the way you are.

Trying to change something in your very soul goes against nature and God.

And so does Exodus International and all the ex-gay movement, as we see in our series, The Sissy Boy Experiment.

Exodus claims, “Exodus International is the world’s largest ministry to individuals and families impacted by homosexuality. With over 35 years of ministry experience, Exodus is committed to encouraging, educating and equipping the Body of Christ to address the issue of homosexuality with grace and truth.”

By the way, two of Exodus’ founders left the group and got married. Two men. And a member of their board of directors got kicked out for hanging out in a gay bar looking for, well, you know.

George Rekers is the very example of the ex-gay fallacy. Read all about him here.

“Ex-gay” doesn’t exist. The very idea is dangerous, and destructive. And it’s already, tragically, killed.

Sharing… here is my header and comment: David Badash 's got it right. Don't waste your money. "Let’s be frank, folks. If you’re gay, bisexual, lesbian, transgender, it’s OK. Embrace it. If you believe in God, he loves you, just the way you are."….because he made you that way to begin with!

.and mortals such as pastors/ministers/priests can only attempt to interpret God' will. And those that tell you they are right and GOD is WRONG.. have it all backwards.

PS David when you say two left to get married was that to men or women? or intersex? lets not discriminate.

Sorry if it wasn't clear!
"two of Exodus’ founders left the group and got married. Two men." A same-sex marriage, oh my!
Thanks for all your wonderful support!

I don't dispute how difficult it can be to change sexual orientation, but to deny that people change sexual orientation is just shutting your eyes. I know plenty of people who have been ex-gay for decades with large families and happy marriages. That doesn't mean they don't have still have orientation conflicts, but they have found and developed their latent heterosexuality and are happy. I think its wrong to rob people of their chance to have a marriage where both partners share in the creation of their children.
