The following excerpt is from the article “Sound Science (Not Politics) in the Post Exodus Era” written by Christopher Doyle and published on the Christian Post website: “… misinformation from gay activists, as was seen in Mr. [Gregory T.] Angelo’s article [Gay Rights in the Post Exodus Era], is responsible for the present clouding between science and politics.”

“Mr. Angelo incorrectly cited Exodus International as the ‘standard-bearer’ and Alan Chambers as the ‘poster boy’ for SOCE therapy. However, Exodus International never existed as a therapeutic organization, but rather, a network of faith-based ministries providing support for individuals seeking to leave homosexuality. One must be very careful to distinguish ministerial and pastoral care from professionally trained psychotherapists and psychologists that provide therapeutic services for those who experience unwanted same-sex attractions.”

“Furthermore, to label Chambers, a man with no therapeutic or psychological training, the ‘poster boy’ of the ex-gay movement, especially in light of the fact that he never received psychotherapy to overcome his own same-sex attractions, is disingenuous. It is no secret that Chamber’s poor leadership and lack of resolve to do his own therapeutic work played a significant role in the implosion of Exodus. Neither can Chamber’s or John Paulk’s personal failures speak for the many that have experienced change from a homosexual to a heterosexual orientation. …”
