Focus on the Family Sells Gay Workshops

Focus on the Family apparently obeys higher powers than the one in heaven: The religious organization is shutting down its controversial Love Won Out program, which tries to turn gays straight, because the workshops lose money. "Love Won Out is not an inexpensive event to stage, and rarely, in over 50 cities where it's been held, have we ever made back our investment, despite good attendance,” said Focus’ vice president, Gary Schneeberger. The Love Won Out operation will be handed over to a longtime ministry partner, Exodus International.
