(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The closing of Exodus International, which had claimed that gays could be made straight through reparative therapy, noted. Tonight's interview held with former Exodus International president Alan Chambers about his apology and the closing. [CHAMBERS†- explains how he is sorry that people were impacted and hurt by our rhetoric about promising to change their sexual orientation; admits vulnerable people are in a state of anxiety so they look to Exodus and the church for help and we told them to change; asserts now he believes sexual orientation cannot be changed and that reparative therapy does not work.]
Cooper, Anderson
