On his blog titled “Some Christians Shift on Gays – Alan Chambers in USA Today” Randy Thomas pointed out his favorite quote from Tom Krattenmaker’s column in USA Today: “A couple of years ago, in announcing Exodus International’s resignation from the anti-gay ‘Day of Truth’ in high schools, Chambers said, ‘We need to equip kids to live out biblical tolerance and grace, while treating their neighbors as they’d like to be treated.’ Now, in launching his Reduce Fear campaign, he again draws from the Bible. Exodus, he says, has been ‘imprisoned in a worldview that’s neither honoring toward our fellow human beings, nor biblical. From a Judeo-Christian perspective, gay, straight or otherwise, we’re all prodigal sons and daughters. … God is calling us to … welcome everyone, to love unhindered.'”

(Analysis by Ex-Gay Truth editor Thomas Coy: Alan is right in saying that all Christians are prodigal sons and daughters. Christians are united in their repentance and the turning away from past sin and choosing to follow Jesus. The Church welcomes all to repent and join them in following Jesus. Christian love includes the message of sin and repentance, and that seems to be left out of Alan Chamber’s new religious philosophy)
