Exodus International Apologizes for Trying to Convert Gays From its start in California 37 years ago, Exodus International built 260 Christian ministries based on the idea that homosexuality could be "cured." Now, its leader says he was wrong, and Exodus International is closing down . Last night on the Oprah Winfrey Network, Alan Chambers read from an open letter to the LGBT community and apologized for the "gay conversion therapy" practiced by Exodus International. Chambers was interviewed earlier this week by Jeff Chu for the The Atlantic magazine. Chu is author of Does Jesus Really Love Me? : A Gay Christian's Pilgrimage in Search of God in America.
Trump's ethical conflicts pile up as transparency diminishes President Trump's refusal to reveal his income tax returns is just one example of a lack of transparency that could be hiding conflicts of interest.
