Alan Chambers Making Stuff Up

Terry Gross of the NPR program Fresh Air broadcasted an interview today with Exodus president Alan Chambers (she also interviewed ex-ex-gay Shawn O’Donnell and writer Tanya Ezren).

Alan claims that he is speaking for his constituents, the people that he represents. Was he elected to a congressional post or something? Taken over Foley’s seat? When did he stop working in ministry and begin a political career?

Daniel Gonzales of Ex-Gay Watch put together this excellent video with some of Alan’s boldest and most inaccurate claims. Unlike Alan, Daniel provides us with some statistics.

    PT,

    I trust you’ve heard about Alan Chambers’s book, GOD’S GRACE AND THE HOMOSEXUAL NEXT DOOR, in which he condemns celibacy as a sinful act? This guy seems to be always finding new ways to wave the banner of heterosexism.

    Bravo, Mr. Gonzales! I heard the interview with Terry live, and I in fact had thought to myself that his facts were likely made up. Well…maybe he asked some reprogrammed gay folks in his program and got his statistics there:-)
