http://www.cbn.com/tv/2539123269001 that's link to a video from the 700 Club about Exodus shutting down
and Pat Robertsons comments after this sotry was shown:
" I am very very very pleased that we have many homosexuals watching this program, and many of them are looking for love and acceptance and help and I'm glad to report that we have thousands of these people who are saying "yes we want to follow Jesus, we're not happy with the lifesyle we're in and we want to have a better way" so, I think it's wonderful that that's happening, and I just think you know we're not anti- gay or anything, but I do believe in the Bible."(goes on to talk about Paul and 2nd chapter of Romans being very explicit about the world and how it would not see god- and their foolish hearts were darkened and they began to exchange natural sex for same sex and how homosexuality is not something new or natural, but came from foresaking God) and " If they reunite with the Lord, the lord will get their priorities the way it's supposed to be"
then his co-host said that "and I think that one of the things that Chambers was saying was that maybe the challenge and journey of that has been made to seem too simple because it (he interupts with sor of a sighing nanano type of response) you work through it in your relationship " then he interrupts again with "well, you work through it but if you meet the Lord, I mean it should be, it can be instant, but there are a lot of people who are into this homosexual thing because they've been abused by a parent, abused by a sibling, aboused by a friend and they're little boys, little girls, they don't know any better and then they somehow think well, I must be gay. Well, they aren't, they are heterosexual and they just need to come out of that. There are others who maybe they have some chormosomal damage that's different from heterosexuals, that's what of course they claim, and then the homosexual movement, they say that hey, you can't come out of this under any circumstances. But in any event, this Exodus, I don't understand what he's saying- now we'll let the church do what we weere doing, the church aint gonna do it, it hasn't been doing it (kinda laughing as he says it) and so, I'm sure some other organization will rise up to help people who want out."
*I didn't put in the Uh's and repetitive and's but yeah...*and I tried to just find video of Pat, but had no luck
anyhow... for the question, what do you guys think of Exodus shutting down? Personally, the second they showed the guy running it- I thought, why WOULDN'T they? I mean obviously, he hasn't "changed" even if he IS married and trying to avoid it. (I do not mean that in any kind of negative way at all- just the ovbious *to me anyhow)
*I know most of us can agree that Pat Robertson is...well...Pat Robertson ;)
side note- before this story started they did one on obesity and he was pushing green tea extract pills - WHAT THE? *his views/comments (that I've seen) on weight make cringe too...but that's a whole other post!
*also, excuse typos and grammar issues- I tried ;)
