    I’m appreciating Exodus International’s latest video:

    January 25th Week in Review

    Alan Chambers is excited about switching up their set for the weekly video. Instead of coming to us from a comfy home den, they’re now broadcasting directly from… wait for it… you know you’ll love it… HEAVEN!

    OK, my interpretation, not Alan’s. But, c’mon, that’s exactly how uber-white backlit sets have been used for generations.

    Oh yeah, and out, happy gay people should feel free to call Exodus for help mediating squabbles with Christian family members.

    Bose,

    I couldn’t get the video to play this morning, so I’m not sure of the context. But I think there might be times in which an Exodus member might not be a bad idea as a mediary between an openly gay person and a conservative religious person.

    It can be a matter of language and culture, sometimes, and Exodus might serve as an interpreter. I’m familiar with both and at times I marvel at both how gay people misunderstand what a religious person is saying and vice versa.

    Of course this presumes that Exodus can leave their own goals out of it. They are headed in that direction, but I’m not sure they are all at a place where they could be neutral. At this time I would probably recommend Gay Christian Network.
