Tenn. ends investigation of ex-gay camp for teens
Dept. of Children\'s Services says child abuse allegations \'unfounded\'

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) | Jun 27, 9:39 PM

Tennessee said Monday it has found no evidence to support child abuse allegations against a Christian group that works with gay teenagers.

The group, Love In Action International, believes instilling strong Christian beliefs can keep gays from acting on their gay sexual desires.

The group, which also works with adults, has a program called Refuge for teens 15 to 18 years old.

The state Department of Children\'s Services said last week that it was looking into a report of child abuse at the Refuge program. The program drew protests earlier this month from gay advocacy groups.
