|Escaping from the ¨damage¨|
¨A psychologist and one-time Exodus* counsellor has told the Brisbane Times HERE, Australia, has denounced the ex-gay movement, saying he walked away 25 years ago because it forced gay men into “living an even greater lie” that hurt themselves and their families.
Paul Martin, now an equal rights activist and head of the Centre for Human Potential in Brisbane, spoke out after Australia’s Community Services Minister, Fiona Simpson, was criticized for her ex-gay views. The politician had lent public support to Exodus in 2002, praising the organization for giving homosexuals “the freedom to grow into homosexuality over time.” HERE
