Even Exodus Doesn’t Want Uganda Killing Gays. Because Then Who Will They Convert?


Through its conversion therapy programs, Exodus International claims it can change homosexuals to heterosexuals if they want it bad enough. And, if not, they can at least train you to become celibate, and reconcile your same-sex attractions with your religious beliefs. So you would think that Exodus, an international organization, would look to a country like Uganda as a plump feeding ground for potential converts. And yet the group is criticizing a move there — supported by President Yoweri Museveni and some lawmakers — to make gay sex a crime punishable by death.

Uganda is free to make homosexuals feel marginalized, but they shouldn’t persecute and kill them! That’s the message Exodus’s chief Alan Chambers (pictured, top) is sending to President Museveni (pictured, below) , writing Monday in a letter to him: “If homosexual behavior and knowledge of such behavior is criminalized and prosecuted, as proposed in this bill, church and ministry leaders will be unable to assist hurting men, women and youth who might otherwise seek help in addressing this personal issue.”


The letter, co-signed by Exodus EVP Randy Thomas, Moody Bible Institute professor Christopher Yuan, and this guy, continues: “The Christian church cannot and should not condone homosexual living or gay-identified clergy within its leadership, but it must be permitted to extend the love and compassion of Christ to all. We believe that this legislation would make this mission a difficult if not impossible task to carry out.”

You see, if you execute all of Uganda’s gays, there will be nobody left to heinously convert. Even Exodus understands, that’s bad business!

    Alan Chambers looks like a former tweaked out twinkie I used to know.

  • romeo

    The hypocrisy makes the mind reel. Exodus does everything it can toward re-criminalizing and marginalizing homosexuality here.

  • romeo

    @Keith: it’s probably him. And he’ll be tweaked out again one day, rest assured. LOL

  • Bill

    Conversion??? Really??? Who on EARTH would rather be straight than gay???????????????????? (Besides the straights.)

    Please. If you’ve ever seen their homes, that alone is enough to encourage me to suffer their abuse.

    As far as Alan Chambers is concerned: When Alan is discovered in a public restroom with a dick in his mouth, and, let’s face it, Alan Chambers WILL be caught in a public restroom with a dick in his mouth, what will his explanation be? Research, perhaps??

    What a sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad man. He doesn’t have the balls to live under the persecution & discrimination and Apartheid that heterosexuals are, state by state, instituting against us, so he ‘becomes’ one of the enemy that would just as soon see him dead on the roadside.

    Uncle Tom Faggot much, Alan?

    Wow, the head of Exodus International has an EXTREAM case of gayface.

    Romeo sez: “Exodus does everything it can toward re-criminalizing and marginalizing homosexuality here.”

    Exodus is bad enough on its own without mis-stating its actions and goals.

  • dvlaries

    Yeah, there’s a pair of eyes that I say “I drank the Kool-Aid and I’d do it again” alright :o

  • romeo

    FakeName: Exodus supports everything and anything that comes along that would repress us. Anything to drive more of us into their corral.

    I don’t think I’m mis-stating at all. They would love to create an environment in this country that makes them the only viable alternative for us, Big Brother style. No ex-gay org is content to accept just the people that come to them voluntarily. They use church pressure on individuals to try to swell their ranks. And they are affiliated with right-wing groups to promote anti-gay legislation whenever possible.

    Yeah, it’s bad enough.

    I think Exodus is trying to cover their assess so if they is a mass persecution of GLBT of Uganda like Rwanda, they don’t want to be blamed, since it’s bad for business.

  • martin

    All of this madness for the sake of Christ.

    @10 Martin:

    And anti-semites talk about Jews running the world like that would be a BAD thing!

    As for this line from the article:

    “Uganda is free to make homosexuals feel marginalized”

    Bullshit. There needs to be a universal code of human rights and 100% LGBT equality needs to be one of the top requirements. There needs to be a zero tolerance code for violators with progressively harsher penalties for each violation, up to and including war.

    Religion really is the greatest plague upon mankind. People say money is the root of all evil. I say its religion.

    What the hell is WRONG with Africa? I mean, colonialism can only explain so much backwardness. The rest has to come from something else.

    Maybe it’s the mosquitoes. They’d make anyone cranky.

  • Attmay

    @13 Jeff K:

    I would support a form of liberal colonialism by western states over these backwards hell holes. It’s obvious that they both need and deserve it.
