In New Zealand, an Exodus Global Alliance affiliate has been declined charitable status. The Charities Commission made its wise decision saying that Exodus does not serve any “public benefit” because homosexuality is not considered a mental disorder and did not need curing.

Most organizations that apply to the commission are accepted, so far nearly 25,000, but increasingly they are later dumped with 978 rejected this year so far.

In our view, Exodus should also have its tax-exempt status removed in the United States, because the group is practicing fake therapy that damages its clients. As in New Zealand, Exodus has no public benefit in the United Sates and thus should not be given tax breaks that make it easier for the organization to destroy lives.
