35 years of twisting orientation research so that it fulfills preconceived script

by Jeremy Hooper

Focus on the Family is looking back on Exodus International's founding:

Despite the doubters and nay-sayers who have attacked and vilified those who have come out of homosexuality over the past 35 years, the ministry continues. I’m thankful for the men and women who pioneered this work, and I’m very grateful for God’s hand on this ministry.

Happy Anniversary!

Us too:

Don't let Focus on the Family mislead: Almost no one "attacks" and "vilifies" the people who choose to identify "ex-gay." Nobody really attacks the individual right to live their lives as they see fit. In fact, this site has been quite judicious in dealing with the human beings who are caught up in the chosen "ex-gay" lifestyle and who push the "former homosexual" agenda.

But we quite unabashedly denounce the "ex-gay" movement's generalized war on science, the cover they provide for "pro-family" groups and their "love the sinner, hate the sin" positions, and the general mud that this concocted wing of the religious right throws into the "culture war" waters. The harms from that are simply immeasurable.
