"Ex-Gays" | Grindr | Matt Moore | News | Zinnia Jones

'Ex-Gay' Blogger for the 'Christian Post' Caught on Grindr, Admits His 'Disobedience to Christ'

Activist Zinnia Jones, via one of her readers, revealed a Grindr profile yesterday belonging to someone who appeared to be Matt Moore, an "ex-gay" blogger for the Christian Post, who has written much about his departure from the "gay lifestyle".

Like this: Moore

God commands me to repent of my sin not because He’s an evil dictator, but because He’s a loving Father who knows that my sin will destroy me in multiple ways. Mentally, emotionally, physically, and ultimately eternally. If you don’t think homosexuality hurts anybody, just check out the statistics. Check out the number of murders among the gay community. Check out the addiction rate among homosexuals. Check out the average lifespan of a male homosexual. Seriously, just google it. You can see for yourself. …

I can, in truth, firmly say that the longer I keep turning away from my homosexual desires, the less in strength they become. My homosexual feelings have definitely diminished since the night God started drawing me to Himself in September of 2010. Are they completely gone? No, they are not. Will they ever be completely gone? I do not know. …

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.

Zinnia has a few more examples on her blog. Anyway, after exposing Moore, he wrote her:

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.

As we all know, Moore is not only deluding himself, but his writings are dangerous to others who may be reading them with questioning feelings. Hopefully, he'll see the light at some point and realize there's no such thing as "ex-gay" and preaching that there is only does harm to others. In the meantime, look out for him on Grindr.

  1. Dear God, please make this stop. I find it hard to laugh at the hypocrisy of these guys; to me it's just sad. Sad that we still perpetuate these lies about "change," and sad that people are still so brainwashed as to buy them.

    I speak from personal experience. I just want to tell these guys, there is so much freedom in finally living in truth.

  2. Let me get this straight, Matt. You're goddamn religion (and all religions) force us into the closet, rob us of our self esteem, gives permission for others to abuse us, dictates that our families disown us, force us to have sex with someone we don't find attractive, AND IT'S BEING GAY THAT CAUSES THIS? You're a moron!! It's the closet that kills. You dumb ass! The closet is killing you, you bean brain. The CLOSET and your religion is making you unhappy. Maybe you're too dimwitted to understand. So sick, sick, sick of you and your ilk.

  3. Pretty sad for Jones - it shows how pathetic he is.

    But, in all fairness, it's hillarious for the rest of us!

  4. what a waste..... 23 years old, at his prime, and deep into the closet of denial and hate, and most sadly, self denial...

    by the time he's in his late 30s and early 40s no one in the gay community will give him any attention (specially with this past)... instead of praying the gay away, he should pray the hate away.... he even got the grindr eyebrow raise down...

    it totally reminds me of WIllam's "The Boy is a Bottom" video.... google it, it is delightful...

  6. It must be great to have such a "loving and gracious God" that forgives you when you commit the same "sin", over and over and over...

  7. This is just delicious.

  8. I feel sorry for any guy that hooks up with him. Although he has been a very bad boy and needs to find someone who will punish him for his sins. Perhaps a good spanking is in order?

  9. oh he needs to lighten up. Pathetic.

  10. Maybe he likes being a dirty, bad boy. I remember in my teens I would have sex with this older guy. I avoided him as much as I could, but he was so hot and I wanted to do it so badly. My religious upbringing made me insanely guilty. But when I would give in - I was like an animal out of cage. It was so hot that my head would explode when I had an orgasm. Maybe he just likes that kind of sex. It's unhealthy but it feels incredible when you give in.

  11. What a mess. Homophobia is a chain of abuse.

  12. He's really cute though!

  13. This kid is obviously in crisis. I'm not sure how you can react to this story with anything other than profound sadness and a hope that he gets the help he needs one day. And, that after healing, he is able to make up for the damage he has done.

  16. the list of people like this is as long as the list of loud-mouthed homophobes.

  17. He reminds me of a guy I worked with once. He was always preaching to his coworkers and telling us all the sins we were going to hell for. When we pointed out his *sins*, he said he could do anything he wants, because he is *forgiven*. That's his eternal get-out-of-jail card. Same with this guy. He got caught doing something he preaches against, but he can get away with it by pulling out the "covered by Jesus' blood" get-out-of-jail card.

  18. It would seem it's not his heart he's hardening.

  19. Sad thing is someone this messed up puts themselves forward to help and influence others.

  20. Proves - once again - just how ridiculous and unworkable the "ex-gay" construct is. Wake up Matt - "ex-gay" does not exist, and you cruising on Grindr makes that point clear, and your own hypocrisy even clearer.

  21. We're all at risk when falling under the influence of another, including our notion of God. Likewise others fall under our influence and might therefore be misled. So the argument that he is misleading others and therefore a peril to vulnerable gay people is both hopeless and inevitable all the way around. Of course he's misleading them. What else can he do?

  23. He's hot! Stay on Grindr Matt!

  24. Belatedly, I'm curious now. Somebody's got to know somebody what's he like as a shag.

    *Spill it. NOW...*

  25. I truly feel sorry for this guy. He's lied to himself for so long that he actually believes the lies.

    Also, I would tend to think that even if you don't believe that homosexuality is "God's best" for anyone, surely being in a loving and committed relationship with someone of the same sex is far better than trying to randomly hookup with strangers on Grindr.

    Jesus specifically spoke out against divorce and remarriage, yet conservative Christians don't flip out about that like they do homosexuality. Why? It's as if they have decided that while divorce and remarriage isn't God's best, it's not a bad 'second place' so to speak. So at the very least, shouldn't they be consistent and view homosexuality that way?
