Note to Exodus: Proofread your press releases.

As I noted in my June 1st post, Exodus’ latest press release is only two paragraphs long, yet they didn’t notice that they inverted the term “live a life” for “life a live.” It has yet to be corrected.

Me: “I also think that that grammatical Faux pas above is indicative of their lack of scrutiny when it comes to so much of what they say and do. They don't seem to care when they are caught in a lie, or come across as hypocritical. That article was two paragraphs long, and they didn’t even take the time to proofread it, yet they want the world to conform to their supposedly superior standards.”

Well, upon re-reading that post, I noticed another one:

“…Scott Davis who overseas Exodus International's outreach to youth…”

This further highlights my point that Exodus International does not consider accuracy to be a priority.

Luke 16:10:

“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.”

To be sure, bad grammar is not a form of dishonesty, but the point remains: If they can’t get the little things right, how can they be trusted to get the big things right?
