From Bush’s nomination speech:

She led by example. She put in long hours of pro bono work. Harriet Miers has given generously of her time and talent by serving as a leader with more than a dozen community groups and charities, including the Young Women’s Christian Association, Childcare Dallas, Goodwill Industries, Exodus Ministries, Meals on Wheels and the Legal Aid Society.

It’s ok if your heart stopped there for a second, mine did too. But I was still in my underwear this morning calling every non-exgay “Exodus Ministries” I could google when HRC came to the rescue:

During the announcement, President Bush referenced Miers’ affiliation with Exodus Ministry. This is not the so called “ex-gay” group, but is “a non-denominational Christian organization established to assist ex-offenders and their families become productive members of society by meeting both their spiritual and physical needs.”

Addendum from Mike A.:

1. Exodus International confirms no connection to Miers, but withholds further comment on her qualifications.

2. Wayne Besen views Miers with caution.
