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.

    “It [Exodus]claimed it was equally as entitled to be registered as Rainbow Youth, because of Rainbow Youth’s mission to actively increase the self-esteem of GLBT youth and their families.”

    I fail to see the logic here. Do they mean that since Rainbow Youth increases the self-esteem of GLBT youth, Exodus will run out of business and need compensation?

    Great, now us australians are gonna have to watch the gaybours lord it all over us….typical :P

    One sad thing about these gay guys is that I would bet that in their communities they are never thought of as “ex-gay” despite attending Exodus. They can never really exit, because once it is learned that they went to Exodus, christians really think of them as gay — forever. Because that’s the truth.

    That big hello kitty light bulb he has sitting on his shoulders will always be there too.

    Tax the cults till they drop. Then tax ’em some more.

    Religion is the enemy.

    Religion is a form of insanity composed of equal parts of greed, superstition and ignorance that comes howling straight out of the Dark Ages and prehistory.

    Religion is humankinds greatest tragedy.

    I had a dream about a guy who looked like this. He was glaring at me through the shades of my bathroom window when I got out of shower. I WOKE UP IN COLD SWEAT!

    They should declare it taxable retro-active to the beginning and collect all the back taxes!
