Are there any prominent ex gays left still hiding in their closets while proclaiming their heterosexuality?

They woke-up and realized 'Exodus' means 'leave', so they left.

Darn, I was hoping they meant "NOW".

But what are all of the posters on this thread who have lovingly quoted Exodus going to do? Will any of them apologize?

Yes they will apologize tonight on OWN network @ 10 Eastern/Pacific time. A program called: God and Gays. Heard about it on OutQ XM 108.

Before we all "pile on" (forgive the expression!) this gentleman, it should be noted that he has never hidden the fact that he is gay. While I've always thought Exodus Intl was a sham,(and was never convinced he'd "recovered"- watch tonight to see what I mean!) I respected him being honest about his past. We should celebrate another religious group accepting our rightful place. He seems truly sorry for the damage Exodus Intl has caused. Now we can be the bigger people, and try to forgive.

Alternative translation: Paulk and Chambers have fully funded their retirement accounts. So now their going to go enjoy the fruits of their deception. And they will undoubtedly have a long list of victims who they can take advantage of again.
