Former Ex-Gay Leaders Apologize.

As everyone who has studied the issue at all knows, sexual orientation cannot be willfully changed. No amount of deprogramming, praying to Jesus or laying on of hands will ever change someone from gay to straight. A few years back, the leader of Exodus International in England finally went on record saying that over the many years he led the group, NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON CHANGED from gay to straight.

Now, my friends over at Beyond Ex-Gay and Soulforce have reported that three more leaders of ex-gay ministries in Australia add their names to the long list of former leaders apologizing for their part in the destructive and indecent lie called the Ex-Gay Myth.
