Ex-Gay Blogger Admits to Profile on Gay Social App

Matt Moore has made a name for himself blogging for the Christian Post about leaving the evil ways of a homosexual lifestyle behind.

However, he recently made a U-turn on the gay road of life when he decided to create a profile on the gay social app Grinder and began chatting with other gay men.

Of course, it didn’t take long for another person to recognize the “ex-gay” advocate once his photo began popping up on the app.

Gay blogs such as Joe My God immediatly began running with the story, but couldn’t be certain if the person behind the photo was actually Moore or simply someone pretending to be him – until now.

Matt Moore has confirmed the Grinder membership was indeed his in an email to blogger Zinnia Jones:

“The grindr profile was really mine. I’ve been on it on and off for the last couple of weeks.

Like I told the guy who sent you the picture, I am wrong in having been on grindr. I haven’t changed my views on homosexuality, the bible, etc.

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.

The pastor of my church and the church body I am a part of were informed about me being on grindr (I told them) before all of this came out, publicly.”

Isn’t that convenient? Zinnia Jones was quick to sum up this screw ball’s weak excuse, saying:

“So-called ‘ex-gays’ publicly promote the notion that LGBT people are sinning against a god who will torture them eternally if they fail to suppress and deny their true nature. But privately, they often seem to have trouble practicing what they preach. They proudly tell queer youth that their lives will be cursed with misery, illness, violence, addiction, a lack of meaningful human connection and an untimely death, unless they follow a faith that demands nothing less than the utter negation of who they are. Then they turn around and happily jump right back into a life that supposedly carries these most terrible consequences. And isn’t it wonderful how easily they can choose to forgive themselves for all this?”

We couldn’t agree more Ms. Jones.

Oh, and let’s take note of the fact that while Moore claims he’ll never be on Grinder again, there are plenty of other gay social apps out there. So we won’t be surprised if this man’s mug begins to appear on Gay.com soon.
