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

Staff Blog

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.”
