Where are the other quotation marks?

That load of bullshit was not an "apology". It wasn't even a non-apology.

Odds are, they closed their doors because donations were drying up, and they wanted to steal...I mean, pocket...I mean distribute the rest of the money before donors asked for it back or the creditors could file paper. It wouldn't be the first failed christard hate group whose operators committed financial fraud.

Have you seen a photo of Alan Chambers, the so called leader of that pack. His anti gay therapy SO did not work on him, he is the gayest looking man I ever saw, despite his wife clinging to his arm. I note in any photos I have seen of them together, it is HER doing the arm holding, not him.

So he still feels attracted to men, a big DUHH! His drippy apologies have done nothing for those whom they hurt over the years. I am sure someone has died by his own hand due to their stupid group and no amount of apologies can ever change that fact.

I wonder how ""Dr."" Marcus Bachmann is doing back in Minnesota right now? With his wife soon to be out of work he better amp up those shock treatments and aversion therapies at his clinic.

Exodus and Chambers have been on the outs with the rest of the "ex-gay" industry for a while now, ever since they announced they were closing down their conversion operations last year. As for Chambers "apology", I imagine this is as close as we will ever get. The man is a serious mess on so many levels, just check out any of the video of him that's ended up on YouTube.

There's an excellent open letter to Chambers about this whole fake apology media stunt at http://www.patheos.com/blogs/unfundamentalist...

It sounds like it was really just an attempt to rebrand their hateful product.

Definitely worth reading.
