Communication Begins

Timothy Kincaid

June 30th, 2007

Peterson Toscano and Christine Bakke of www.BeyondExGay.com and the organizers of the Ex-Gay Survivor’s Conference invited leadership of Exodus International to dinner.  Although no one from the Exodus Board was available (Alan Chambers expressed interest in meeting at a separate time), three leaders in affiliated ministries were able to attend.  Peterson blogs:

Three leaders of Exodus member ministries joined four of us ex-gay survivors for dinner. No one from Exodus International senior leadership or from the Exodus board attended the dinner, and those present for the dinner stressed that they do not represent Exodus International.

We commend those leaders who chose to take time away from their very busy schedule to listen to former ex-gays express their concerns. We hope that this is a first of many steps taken to open communications between those ex-gays seeking to live lives consistent with their faith and those former ex-gays who have reconciled their faith and their sexuality.
