HomoQuotable – John Paulk

“It’s funny, for those of us that worked in it, behind closed doors, we knew we hadn’t really changed. Our situations had changed – we had gotten married, and some of us had children, so our roles had changed. I was a husband and father; that was my identity. And the homosexuality had been tamped down. But you can only ...

Former Exodus President Alan Chambers Denounces “Ex-Gay” Therapy For Minors

“What I believe is that when it comes to promising or assuring someone, or causing someone to expect that they’re gong to completely eradicate a set of feelings or temptations or desires, I think that sets someone up for tremendous damage, which can cause them shame and guilt. I certainly believe we should never be offering [conversion therapy] for minors. ...

Quote Of The Day – Rev. Nancy Wilson

“For decades, Exodus International has been synonymous with the idea that people need to be ‘cured’ or ‘healed’ of homosexuality. This week’s historic apology from Exodus leader, Alan Chambers, for the harm done to LGBT people by Exodus is encouraging. Sadly, nothing will bring back the lives lost to suicide based on pseudo-psychology and corrupt theology. Any apology for past ...

Alan Chambers: I Have To Be Honest,
I’m Still Digging Hot Sexy Men

Alan Chambers: Perverted Homosexual Leaders Are Like Hitler And Marx

IMPORTANT UPDATE: It appears the below quote was first published by the Christianist Charisma Magazine in 2004. Ex-Gay Watch speculates as to why the story is now appearing on the magazine’s front page with today’s date: “Is someone at the conservative Christian publication trying to sabotage him [Chambers] by bringing up his past words?” As always, infighting is funny. And ...

I do ask them (if they wish to do this; some clients do ...

Linda Harvey: Effeminized Men Have Overrun The “Ex-Gays” At Exodus

“For Exodus, as a position led by Alan Chambers and he’s not the only one in leadership there that are really misled, for them to pull the plug on kids and just abandon them, this is just the stereotype of men who are not being men, shall I just go there, because that’s what it is. Just don’t defend anything, ...

Linda Harvey Vs Alan Chambers

“Chambers has said he doesn’t believe a person can change his or her so-called sexual orientation. Now, there’s not anything like this invented term called ‘sexual orientation’ in Scripture in the first place, but then he also says that he still struggles himself with sexual feelings for other males. This shows very poor judgment as the leader of this ministry ...

Dan Savage Vs. Alan Chambers

“So we’ve gone from Boys in the Band to Stonewall through forty years of the gay rights movement and forty years of an anti-gay backlash funded by the religious right and twenty years of an ex-gay ‘movement’ that promised ‘freedom from homosexuality’ only to arrive right back where we started: Alan Chambers is a sad and pathetic man. He’s a ...
