Alan Chambers (left) the Exodus International ex-gay group President and Rowan & Martin’s Laugh In look-a-like of Alan Sues, has cancelled its “Love Won Out” conference due to a lack of interest and money, Ex-Gay Watch reports.

“It is with great disappointment that we are notifying you today that the Love Won Out Conference scheduled for May 19th at Legacy Church in Albuquerque, N.M., has been cancelled,” Exodus’ senior director of events David Fountain said in an email, which was sent out to planned attendees.

Exodus International’s last conference barely brought in 400 people.

Truth Wins Out  says, “This is a positive development and signals the decline of this organized lie in the United States” on its website. “The cancellation of this conference, the first time we know of since either Exodus or Focus on the Family held the event, appears to provide more evidence of their decline,”

In November of last year, Exodus held a secret meeting about its fundraising strategies and how to keep the group from social and financial oblivion and has reduced its staff and lost important supporters.

Fountain suggested that individuals who paid for the event might “Automatically convert all or part of your registration fees into a tax-deductible gift to support the ministry efforts of Exodus International.”

    I would like to extend my sincerest apologies to the late Alan Sues for mentioning his name and Alan Chambers in the same sentence.
