This group does not owe me an apology. I never bought into the crap they were trying to sell. But some men and women who could not change felt so disconsolate, they ended their lives. This group owes the surviving family members of those folks a huge apology. I hope they forgive you.

You have to give him credit for realizing that after 37 years of trying, he hasn't been able to alter his own or anyone else's homosexual feelings, so, DUH, it's not a choice. God made them that way. Let's stop stigmatizing people for who they are.

These apologies do not fix the over 37 years of telling people that they can change their sexuality, but closing Exodus International for good is a step in the right direction.
