"For years, Exodus International has been one of the country’s most prominent “ex-gay” Christian groups, promoting the widely discredited practice of attempting to alter a person’s sexual orientation through prayer or counseling.

On January 6, however, during a panel discussion at the Gay Christian Network’s annual conference in Orlando, Florida, Exodus President Alan Chambers confessed that the overwhelming majority of those who had undergone “ex-gay” therapy had not changed their sexual orientation."

    CHAMBERS: The majority of people that I have met, and I would say the majority meaning 99.9 percent of them, have not experienced a change in their orientation or have gotten to a place where they could say that they could never be tempted or are not tempted in some way or experience some level of same-sex attraction. I think that there is a gender issue there. There are some women who have challenged me and said, “Well that - my orientation or my attractions have changed completely.” Those have been few and far between. The vast majority of people that I know do still experience some level of same-sex attraction.
