Christian group apologizes to gays

The leader of Exodus International, a Christian ministry that worked to help people repress same-sex attraction, has apologized to the gay community for inflicting “years of undue suffering.” He plans to close the organization while launching a new effort to promote reconciliation.

“The church has waged the culture war, and it’s time to put the weapons down,” Alan Chambers told The Associated Press on Thursday, hours after announcing his decision at Exodus’ annual conference and posting his apology online.

“While there has been so much good at Exodus, there has also been bad,” Chambers said at the conference. “We’ve hurt people.”
