Alan Chambers says he wants peace in closing down “ex-gay” ministry Exodus International but he won't say being gay is okay.

A day after he apologized for and announced the shuttering of Exodus, Chambers, the group's president, appeared on HuffPost Live.

Last year, Chambers began leading Exodus away from supporting therapies aimed at “curing” gay men and lesbians of their sexual orientation. Chambers, who at one point starred in ads for the ministry touting “change is possible,” reversed course, saying such therapies do not work.

Many ministries reacted angrily and some Christian conservatives called for Chambers to resign.

In a blog post on Wednesday, Chambers apologized to “ex-gay” survivors, saying that he had “hurt so many by failing to acknowledge the pain some affiliated with Exodus International caused, and by failing to share the whole truth about my own story.” Chambers last year admitted that his own attractions to other men had not faded.

While Exodus has reached its end, Chambers said that he's preparing for a new message, an inclusive message.

“I think that moving forward really our desire is to reduce fear. Is to create an opportunity for peace. To really encourage and challenge the church to put its money where its mouth is. To be an organization or a living breathing body of people, the embodiment of Christ, to people who are all sorts of things, whatever it is they are. And for the church to be a place that has a big open front door for everyone and anyone who wants to come into it,” Chambers said on the program.

However, when asked if he believes homosexuality is a sin, he gave an indirect answer, saying that his beliefs only apply to himself.

Also joining the program was Michael Bussee, who has criticized the ministry he helped build.

“Make no mistake, [Chambers] still believes that we are still less than. That our relationships are counterfeit,” Bussee said. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
