Truth Wins Out/Wayne Besen is misrepresenting the facts
* Exodus International does not deny that homosexuals exist
* Exodus is not for people who are content with their homosexuality
* "In no way shape or form is our message about trying to cure or do we try to promote that type of methodology or message," Jeff Buchanan, Exodus International's Senior Director of Church Equipping & Student Ministries,
* Exodus and Don Schmierer opposed the Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Bill - in writing
* The American Psychological Association and other mental health organizations do NOT oppose reparative therapies. They support freedom of self-determination as stated in the APA "Answers to Your Questions For a Better Understanding of Sexual Orientation & Homosexuality" :
"Mental health professional organizations call on their members to respect a person’s (client’s) right to self-determination"
Some organizations, such as Soulforce, will quote older statements but don't quote the current positions, such as the one above.
Instead of "live and let live" Truth Wins Out wants to cleanse society of ex-gay people and support organizations
