Ministry Apologizes to Gay Community and Shuts Down

Exodus International, the Christian ministry known for its "pray away the gay" therapy for homosexuals, issued an apology "for years of undue judgment by the organization and the Christian Church as a whole."

The group also announced it was closing down after 37 years.

Said President Alan Chambers: "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."
