Anti-gay ministry folds

After the closing of Exodus International, a Christian ministry that claimed to offer a "cure" for homosexuality, the National Religious Leadership Roundtable offered a multifaceted response. It said children of all gender and sexual identities are welcome in God's kingdom, and it called for reparative and repentant action from those formerly associated with Exodus International. Alan Chambers, former leader of Exodus, did offer an apology. While some affiliates have set up umbrella groups to support gay conversion therapy, several of Exodus' former leaders plan a new website (www.ReduceFear.org).

Good news.  Hopefully the affiliates will come to "see the light".
