Exodus Int’l Prez Alan Chambers Is Just Super-Jazzed About Being Named Christian Of The Year

Congratulations Alan Chambers: World magazine just named you 2011′s Daniel of the Year, their big award that “honors Christians who stand up to unholy trends”—you know, like recycling, getting your kids vaccinated or reading anything other than Nicholas Sparks novels.

The particular trend Chambers is giving the hand to is homosexuality (you probably guessed that if you saw his face on our home page). He’s the president of Exodus International, the Make-a-Wish Foundation for terminal homosexuals.

In the clip above, Pat Robertson’s CBN profile Chambers and his work helping Christians “struggling with same-sex attraction.”

Meanwhile Chambers (at left right his beard wife, Leslie) sounds like he’s got a slow leak.

On its website, World goes into some detail about why it chose him for the honor:

It’s not an easy job. Part of Chambers’ work involves treading into the lion’s den of mainstream media outlets that scorn the notion that homosexuality is wrong. Critics have called him a bigot, a homophobe, and a spiritual terrorist. An online petition to ban an Exodus application from Apple’s iTunes store earlier this year drew more than 150,000 signatures. Apple dropped the Exodus app, saying it offended large groups of people.

But there’s something that angers Chambers’ opponents as much as his belief that homosexuality is wrong: His message that homosexuals can change. That’s not a new teaching in evangelical Christianity, but it might be one of the most radically unpopular messages in America today.”

We just can’t with these people. Seriously.

      Recycling? That’s a new one. What’s supposedly unholy about recycling?

      Then, Alan Chambers took a huge cock up his ass and two in the mouth.

      Idiot.

      Chambers steels his nerve and bravely goes into gay bars and bath houses nationwide to “spread” his news of Jeebus’ love…… 2011 Danielle award.

      Does anyone else hear a strong similarity in Alan Chamber’s voice and Marcus Bachmann’s?
      They like birds of a feather to me!

      I actually feel sorry for this closet case. It must be very dark and dusty way, way back in that old closet. Next thing you know he’ll try to convice us all that he’s a hunk.

      Honestly I’m more shocked by CBN’s coverage of the story: “Wow, Chambers heads up Exodus International a ministry that *helps* those who want to leave homosexuality.”

      Sorry, but when after 30 years of studies the APA came out to strongly condemn ex-gay “therapies” as extremely harmful I feel that should be added at the very least as a footnote. Plus it makes it sound like being gay is something you can “leave”. Lastly, “homosexuality”. Seriously? The term originated as a clinical diagnosis. Thankfully the world (or most of it) has caught up and realized there is nothing wrong in the first place! Quit using such archaic terms or else I’ll end up having to call you all troglodytes.

      Whoops, for some reason I thought it was CNN and not CBN. In this case I’m honestly not surprised and I will freely use the term troglodyte now (especially since they likely think the Earth is 6,000 years old so I hit that timeline spot on).
