'Ex-Gay' Christian Blogger Found On Male Hookup App


from HuffPost:



An "ex-gay" Christian advocate, who blogs about how religion saved him from a life of homosexual sin, was recently discovered on gay hookup app Grindr.

Matt Moore, a blogger for the Christian Post, writes extensively about how Christianity has helped him to turn away from a gay lifestyle. But, apparently it didn't help him quite enough to steer him away from Grindr.

Freethought Blogs writer Zinnia Jones, LGBT rights activist and HuffPost GayVoices blogger, was the first to expose Moore's Grindr account on Monday. At first, she questioned if the account could be a fake, but Moore later admitted the Grindr profile was his.

"I am wrong in having been on grindr. I haven’t changed my views on homosexuality, the bible, etc.," he said to Jones. "Creating a grindr profile and talking to guys on it was major disobedience on my part….disobedience to Christ. Disobedience to a loving and gracious God. Thankfully, I believe that He forgives me for this disobedience. I believe the blood of Christ covers this disobedience. And I won’t be on grindr again….ever." .................(more)

4. According to legend

Jesus was a carpenter. I guess the Christians who "converted" him just taught him how to build another closet.

8. It just makes me sad

He hates himself so much for who he is that he has to put his hate onto other people to be able to live with himself. It's heart breaking really. If only he could accept who he is, the world would be just slightly better... And less hateful.

9. How convenient for Mr. Moore

that he knows he is forgiven and everything is ok again. I feel sorry for him. It is a sad thing that he so hates his god-given nature so much that he has to fight it every minute.

10. Ouch, he needs to stop lying to himself and everyone else if he is ever going

break free of the confused chaos of the ugly hell that he lives in every day of his sad, miserable life.

If you're LGBT you're LGBT, it is what it is, end of story. Embrace who you are, and never look back.

11. He was created as he is by his 'loving and gracious God'.

Why can't he just go with that? Isn't it disrespectful to want to change how your god created you?
