Not sure if you’ve heard of Matt Moore before but here’s a little background. Moore is a reformed “ex-gay” who blogs for the site Christian Post. There he writes about the evils of homosexuality, his experiences as a homosexual and his decision to leave the “lifestyle.” Here’s an excerpt from one of his posts.
“The main thing that I struggle with the most still is pornography, but even that is changing. I don’t get the same satisfaction that I used to from it. My stomach actually turns at the site of homosexual “relations.” But I also know that if I continue to watch it and harden my heart toward the Holy Spirit’s conviction, I will start to see things again through the eyes of my sinful flesh rather than through the eyes of the Spirit.” – Matt Moore
Perhaps, he’s watching the wrong kind of gay porn? LOL. With all this in mind, imagine the raised eyebrows when the 23-year-old was recently spotted on Grindr. Was he there to make “friends” or simply falling off the reformed gay bandwagon? A horny boy’s gotta do, what a boy’s gotta do ;) Atheist blogger & LGBTQ activist Zinnia Jones who’s written about Moore before, noticed his presence on the hookup site. She contacted Moore to see if that indeed was his genuine profile. Surprisingly, Matt did confirm it and wrote the following response.
“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.” – Matt Moore

I classify myself as somewhat religious and try to attend church whenever I can, but you don’t hear me talking about it frequently on the site. IMHO, it’s a personal thing. I always find it hilarious when someone is supremely vocal with such an extreme viewpoint, only to find “egg” in their face a short time later. What do you think of Matt’s ex-gay propaganda and his decision to appear on Grindr? Hypocritical or simply a lost soul? Sound off below.
