People in the United Kingdom may have assumed that the exgay movement there was effectively crippled when the head of Exodus’ British flagship organization, Jeremy Marks, acknowledged that no one had really changed from gay to straight, and that Christians were being damaged by efforts at so-called “change.”

But former exgay Peterson Toscano suggests that the movement — still alive — may have gone underground, using British evangelical and pentecostal churches and piggybacking on a rising trend of “Christian counseling.”

Toscano quotes British blogger Contemplative Activist, who believes that by working out of sight, the antigay movement can be more poisonous to churches and communities than the visible and public work of Exodus was.
