Ex-gay, ‘Christian Post’ blogger Matt Moore can’t resist Grindr

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

Matt Moore, a blogger at the Christian Post who has written extensively about his experiences with homosexuality and his ultimate decision to leave that “lifestyle,” has been spotted on the gay hook-up site Grindr.

Zinnia Jones, an LGBT activist and writer at Freethought Blogs, first exposed Moore’s Grindr profile on Monday, questioning if the account could be a fake.

But as Jones wrote on Tuesday, Moore confirmed that it was, in fact, him trolling on Grindr:

“I am wrong in having been on grindr. I haven’t changed my views on homosexuality, the bible, etc.,” Moore told 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.”

You can read Moore’s latest post, “Leaving Homosexuality: The Real Power Of My Testimony,” at his blog, “Standing on Truth.”

  3. He couldn’t pick any guy up at an ex-gay meeting? I thought it was GRINDR for the self-loathing, Christian crowd!

  18. Right, I think I will decide to be an ex-lesbian. But, oh my, what will I tell my wife? Poor delusional gay.

  19. How very sad that he does not feel Christ can love him if he is gay. iHe needs to keep his relationship with Christ to himself and stop trying to project his own fear of inadequacy onto others.

  20. Lmfao! This is actually a sad story.

  21. I feel sorry for this young man. I pray that he will learn to accept himself just as God made him…and stop trying to make others feel guilt about the way God made them.

  22. Can’t ignore your sexuality – proof that gay “exorcism” (what I call it) doesn’t freakin’ work.

  23. “…and I won’t be on Grindr ever again.” because I got caught. Jeesh.

  24. I’m calling fraud on this one. Reminds me too much of the ex-atheist routine.

  25. Let’s all pitch in to buy him a flashlight….. cuz he’s jumped right back into the closet, and he needs some light to find his way out. Usually this kind of person would really piss me off because of how he treats homosexuality as a choice….. but this just makes me sad, to see that he is ***SO*** brainwashed into believing that his sexuality is a sin/mistake. The poor guy is in denial, and if nothing else I hope he at least steps out of the public light and stops trying to shame others :(
