Randy Thomas and Alan Chambers recently went to Washington DC to lobby for the marriage amendment. Ex-Gay Watch readers have likely thought many different things about Chambers’ and Thomas’ motivation. My editor Mike dug up an old copy of the Exodus newsletter where Chambers discusses his reasons for involvement in politics. (April 2005)
For copyright reasons I can’t reprint Chambers’ entire letter but I enlarged some key passages.
In between the excerpts Chambers discusses the difficulties of operating in Canada, Christian protesters arrested at Philadelphia pride, and quotes Chuck Colson. Nowhere in the letter does Chambers explain how gay marriage encroaches on his freedom of religious speech.
Since Exodus has stopped sending their newsletter to us, I would appreciate it if XGW readers subscribe to it (free) and help watch for newsworthy content.
