Marlo Thomas: Shutting Down the Myths: Exodus International Sees the Light
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It takes a lot of courage -- and honesty -- to admit you were wrong, and Alan Chambers has done just that. This week, he announced plans to shut down his controversial Christian ministry, Exodus International, which was the country's largest organization devoted to "curing" homosexuality, and he issued a public apology to the LGBT community for the harm he has done to them over the years. "Exodus is an institution in the conservative Christian world, but we've ceased to be a living, breathing organism," he said. "For quite some time we've been imprisoned in a worldview that's neither honoring toward our fellow human beings, nor biblical." I found his choice of words to be very interesting. To be "imprisoned" by a way of thinking -- especially when it stands in direct contradiction to the religious beliefs a person holds to be true -- is to be at odds with one's own heart. And that is what this is really all about -- following your heart, and allowing others to be who ...

    Age 45
    In 1996 Bruce Hart made a comeback to the ring with the independent New York based promotion Ultimate Championship Wrestling (UCW), where he wrestled with the likes of Chris Chavis, his brother-in-law Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart, Falcon Coperis, and Marty Jannetty and feuding with wrestlers such as Tiger Khan.
    More Details Hide Details In UCW Hart was involved in and developed a nWo type storyline in which he and former WWE wrestlers portrayed greedy lazy fat-cat type villains who looked down on and used the younger rookie talent at the shows to make money and gain power in the promotion. Hart was instrumental in the development of the young talent of the UCW. Bruce's next WWF appearance was at In Your House 16: Canadian Stampede when he interfered in the main event which pitted The Hart Foundation (Bret Hart, Owen Hart, British Bulldog, Brian Pillman and Jim Neidhart) against Stone Cold Steve Austin, Ken Shamrock, Goldust and Legion of Doom (Hawk and Animal). Bruce played a key role in the finish of the match as he scuffled with Austin, allowing Owen to score the pinfall victory over Austin. Bruce's next and most recent appearance in the renamed WWE was at WrestleMania XXVI, where he was the surprise Special Guest Referee for his brother Bret's first WWE match in 13 years, a No Holds Barred Lumberjack match against the WWE chairman Vince McMahon. McMahon thought that Bruce and the rest of Hart family were at his side, but they all turned on him and helped Bret win the match.

    More Details Hide Details Bruce and several Hart brothers interfered in the match by climing the cage. Bruce also appeared on an episode of Monday Night Raw in the summer of 1994.
  • 1993
    Age 42

Bruce made his first appearance at the 1993 Survivor Series pay-per-view, teaming with his brothers Bret, Owen and Keith to take on Shawn Michaels and his "Knights" (The Red Knight, The Blue Knight and The Black Knight).
    More Details Hide Details The Knights theme was used as the team was supposed to be led by Jerry "The King" Lawler, who was having legal troubles at the same time as his feud with Bret Hart and was replaced by Michaels. The Hart Brothers won the match, with Owen being the only team member eliminated. Owens failure ignited a lengthy feud between Bret and Owen that would last for several years. The Owen and Bret feud was originally conceived as a feud between Bret and Bruce but Bret proposed to make it between him and Owen instead as he believed the dynamic for them would be superior.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1985
    Age 34
    As a result, near the end of 1985, Stu Hart decided to re-open the promotion with Bruce running most of it.
    More Details Hide Details Initially the promotion, which had been hurt by the loss of most of its well known wrestlers, struggled to remain afloat. As a consequence, Bruce chose to feature a new, edgier and more hard core style of wrestling - featuring villains: the Karachi Vice (Makhan and Vokhan Singh and the Great Gama, the Viet Cong Express (Hiroshi Hase and Nubohiko Niikura) Jason the Terrible, the masked Zodiak (Barry Orton) and younger and coming babyfaces, such as Owen Hart, Ben Bassarab, Chris Benoit, Jushin Thunder Liger and the tag team Badd Company (Bruce Hart and Brian Pillman). In short order, the promotion would survive for the next several years, drawing reasonable gates and turning out a number of performers who would go on to have decent careers in other companies after the promotions end. Despite this the promotion suffered backstage due to Bruce and his father Stu having grave disagreements about how to handle storylines. The promotion shut down in 1989 when Stu's promoter's license expired and they could not afford to pay for a new one.
  • 1984
    Age 33
    Hart returned to New Japan in early April 1984 for the NJPW Big Fight Series where he primarily wrestled in singles matches, several of which were with Norio Honaga but also against other wrestlers such as Nobuhiko Takada, Tatsutoshi Goto, Masanobu Kurisu, Makoto Arakawa, Fumihiro Niikura, Isamu Teranishi. He also took part in one known tag match, partnering with Hercules Ayala against Haruka Eigen and Kantaro Hoshino. Near the end of 1984, Bruce's father, Stu, accepted an offer from WWF president, Vince McMahon, to sell the promotion for $1,000,000, plus 10% of all subsequent WWF gates in Western Canada to the WWF.
    More Details Hide Details As part of the deal, several Stampede superstars, including Bret Hart, Dynamite Kid, Davey Boy and Neidhart also joined the WWF. However, several months later, Bruce violated the terms of the agreement by assisting a rival promotion in the territory, leading McMahon to renegade on the deal.
    In March 1984 while back in Stampede Hart became Stampede International Tag Team Champion together with Davey Boy Smith.
