Picture this, me sitting in my office yesterday morning at 7:30am when all of a sudden my wife, Leslie, calls to not only inform me that President Bush has done what the AP reported he would do (nominate Harriet Miers), but also listed that his nominee has volunteered for 'Exodus Ministries'. Leslie and I laughed and she said, "Get ready for the phone to start ringing off the hook."
Leslie was right. Every major and minor, local and national, media outlet known to man called us. Not to mention many of our friends on Capital Hill, other pro-family groups and our own constituents at Exodus International.
It was an enormous encouragement to know that so many people knew of Exodus International and that their first thought was of us. Whether their respective opinion of Exodus International is positive or negative, at least people knew of our existence. In fact we even got honorable mention in the noon time White House Briefing.
One friend on Capital Hill said, "At least we now know the press’ lack of reporting on the “ex-gay” community is willful resistance and not just lack of knowledge whatsoever."
So, if you are still sitting on the edge of your seat wondering if future Justice Harriet Miers did actually volunteer for Exodus International...she did not. You can read our statement here. Though, we would welcome her involvement.
