We pause for one of those inspirational deep thoughts that are widely posted on the Internet and credited to no one:
Never deprive someone of hope, it might be all they have.
Never give up on anybody; miracles happen everyday.
Never underestimate the power of a kind word or deed.
Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.
Truth Wins Out opposes the “ex-gay” movement because it deprives same-sex-attracted people of hope for authenticity. The “hope” that Exodus sells is hope for dishonesty, denial of reality, mischaracterization of other people, and the ultimately the power of hatred and control over other people — and their souls.
Truth Wins Out opposes the “ex-gay” movement because it denies that same-sex-attracted people and non-Christians can enjoy the same miracles as anyone else. In the worldviews of Exodus International and its allies, miracles are not permitted to happen to the politically and spiritually incorrect.
Truth Wins Out opposes the “ex-gay” movement because it denies kind deeds to same-sex-attracted people. Exodus believes that meanness, ostracism, and discrimination — the abusive myth of “tough love” — will force people to conform to the selfish wickedness of “ex-gay” and Christian Right activists. Instead of offering kind words, Exodus and its fellow Christian Rightists sugar-coat words of selfishness, condescension, and ostracism.
And Truth Wins Out opposes the “ex-gay” movement because it prefers to spend 18 months (and counting) promoting genocide in Africa, rather than tell LGBT Ugandans that they are loved unconditionally and tell antigay Ugandans that they have betrayed a God of love. Exodus cannot love anyone, because it denies the prerequisite existence of fundamental human rights.
