Exodus moves away from curing gays and towards promoting celibacy or finding an understanding member of the opposite sex

This week in Minneapolis, 600 Exodus ministers and followers are gathering for the group's annual conference. The conference is about dissociating the group from the controversial practice usually called ex-gay, reparative or conversion therapy. Exodus president, Alan Chambers, says... I do not believe that cure is a word that is applicable to really any struggle, homosexuality included...
The ministry's emphasis for gays and lesbians is now about celibacy or finding an understanding opposite-sex partner.
Chambers acknowledged some Exodus affiliates might still offer reparative therapy and that 99.9 percent of people he's encountered in two decades with Exodus were not able to completely rid themselves of same-sex attraction.
So Ennis ... did Sydney Anglican, Haydn Sennitt, raise enough money
to take himself off to the Exodus Conference?

Perhaps Sydney Anglicans could get their organisation, Liberty Christian  Ministries Inc to seek out understanding heterosexual Christian women and arrange marriages. Now wouldn't they be  marriages made in heaven...and Haydn could tell the men how to behave and Phillip Jensen could provide the marriage guidance for women.
