"I invited Marin to be on my program on Sirius Satellite Radio , where he would not answer a simple question I asked four times: 'Do you affirm homosexuality as normal, natural, and healthy?' Marin claimed that as a 'bridge' he had to be circumspect and also denied ever saying the foundation would make him rich. He also said that he had the full support of HRC, GLAA , and GMHC , which he had linked to and listed on his Web site as 'sponsors and donors,' even though he admitted they had not given him any money."
"Andrew Marin, Kevin Harris, and I [Nathan Nathan Albert, Director of Pastoral Care] at The Marin Foundation have gotten tons of requests for an 'I'm Sorry' shirt.

"This audit proves that in 2008 AIDS Network lied to all of the ACT Ride participants when it said that 90% of their donations were used to support AIDS Network prevention and client services. The audit proves that only 32% of Rider donations were used for these services. What is shocking to everyone who has ever invested the time and enormous energy to complete the ACT Ride and raise the funds – is that 58% of their hard earned donations are used by AIDS Network to cover their fundraising and management costs."
And finally they come to this elderly black man who's been sitting there quietly the entire time. And Ashley asks him why he's there. And he does not bring up a specific issue... He simply says to everyone in the room, "I am here because of Ashley."
By itself, that single moment of recognition between that young white girl and that old black man is not enough... But it is where we start. It is where our union grows stronger ... [it] is where perfection begins.
This isn’t a book about counseling teens or strugglers. At the CStone panel discussion, Andrew was completely respectful of the Exodus ministry people who said they do NOT attempt to recruit people out but disciple those wanting to come out.
It is a book about relating to the GLBT community. It is not a book that addresses the “problem” of homosexuality no matter who makes that call. It is a book about relating to those who are settled in their sexual identity.
