New Zealand: Exodus International’s Mission to Cure Gays Is Unnecessary, No Longer Tax-Free

Exodus Ministries Trust Board, an affiliate of Alan Chambers’ U.S.-based ex-gay group Exodus International, will no longer get to solicit funds tax-free in New Zealand, the Charities Commission there ruled. After 10 years of enjoying charity status, Exodus was stripped of its credentials because its mission — to cure people of The Gay — is not actually a public benefit, since there’s nothing good about “curing” homosexuality. Too bad too, because Exodus could really use the budget boost.
