"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. This kid needs some therapy, to find an accepting church, and to get into a stable healthy relationship.
    (or at least have the self esteem to have safe sex)
    That was me save for the blogging and the grindr a couple of decades ago...

  3. Does his loving god forgive the fact that every word of explanation he wrote was a lie? If you've not read any of his other works of fiction, check out his blog. For such a young guy he's very jaded and bitter. He was depressed, drug-addled cockgobbler for a time (weren't we all) but now, instead of understanding the reason he went through that faze had everything to do with his internalized homophobia and the shame that came with it, he blames it on the "gay community." As though those "nasty" gays forced him to be a one-man cum depository whilst snorting blow and tweaking on E. No accountability whatsoever. Same thing with his Grindr profile. Not his fault. It's satan.

    Matt, please stop quoting stats about alleged violence, high rates of addiction, depression and shortened life expectancy in the gay community as proof as what a "dangerous" way of life it is. The reason that many of us experience depression, abuse substances and sometimes kill ourselves is mainly down to the anti-gay liars that you surround yourself with. Your lies add to the despair and misery.

  4. To all guys like Matt Moore:

    No matter how hard to pray to God (or Allah, Xenu, Buddha or the Flying Spaghetti Monster), he is not going to make you straight.

    You can suppress your homosexual feelings, but you sure as hell can't eliminate them. No matter how many times you get electro-shocked, how fervently you pray, or how many pills you take, you will always be gay.

    You can either waste your time, money and sanity on a Sisyphean task, or you can stop listening to a 2000 year old book of fables and start listening to your heart.

  5. Jesus is quoted denouncing remarriage in several places in the Bible, including Luke 16:18:
    “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery."

    And of course, adultery is listed as one of the Big Ten, and yet is completely ignored by those (largely serial adulterers) who denounce gay people, many of whom have much more meaningful and honest relstionships.

    Curiously, Jesus has not one word on record against gay people or homosexuality or same-sex couples (or even Grindr). When he did talk about a sexual minority (the eunuchs) he spoke acceptingly.

    Moore's concepts around homosexuality have obviously been poisoned by his brainwashing. Being gay need not causes him any problem whatsoever, but he's been so conditioned to hate what he is that he seeks out self-destructive outlets.
    He could instead to be a gay man with a healthy and positive lifestyle conducive to as long a lifespan as his genetics might allow. He could, for example, decide to join the NOLA softball league and end end up falling in love with a man he meets at a post-game barbecue, and they could have a completely healthy relationship and sex life and they could attend the Big Easy Metropolitan Community Church together on Sundays, and he could surround himself with people gay, straight and bi who would share his interests and be positive influences.

    Instead, he chooses to listen to brainwashed people who know nothing about gay people except the negative stereotypes they've heard. He internalizes the false idea that "unhealthy" is the only way to be gay, and thus he lives out his self-fulfulling prophecy of living a psychologically and physically inhealthy and unfulfilling life.
    I notice that the gay people who choose to attend these anti-gay churches invariably live unhealthy lifestyles plagued by issues like drug abuse, suicide attempts and meaningless relationships, while most of the gay people I know have friends who accept them and love lives that are healthy and meaningful. That is no coincidence.

    It's hard to fathom why such people chose to put words into Jesus' mouth to justify the idea that He would prefer that they live this neurotic version of thrir own lives.

  6. There was a time I would have relished hearing about someone getting "caught". But this is just sad. I don't take pleasure in hearing about yet another person tormented between their beliefs and who they are. Were I religious, I would pray that he finds a way to accept himself.

  7. So sad that this person continues to deny God's plan for him. God created him as a gay man because God wants him to fall in love with and marry a man, not enter into a loveless relationship with a woman (or no one). As a Christian man who happens to be gay and is married to a Christian man with whom I have the best son in the world, I assure Matt that if he actually accepts that God created him gay and quits trying to force God to obey his sinful homophobic wishes, then he will be blessed by God and have a much more fulfilling life. I pray Matt sees the error of his ways.

  8. Proof that ex gay therapy does not work and is a fraud and criminal because it take money from suckers who send their kids to these nut jobs who are anti-gay Christian psychotherapist who kill their kids.

  9. He's concerned with the life span of gay men? Well, if we weren't deluged by a horrible plague, our numbers would be double, and we would live to 100 (which sounds horrifying anyway)

  10. He is just afraid to live as much he's. Afraid to die , he wants the eternal living more than the now , he is deeply in struggle , millions of good gay people suffer the same , a msg from me to him , if god is so cruel to play that tit for tat game with whom he creates , u should start considering he's the devil. Be honest and accept urself.

  11. 23 years old, seriously!
    That must be a really bad picture of him because he looks like he's about 35!

    What a fine example of the damage caused by religious brainwashing.

  12. He's hot.

    This is sad though. He's clearly struggling and in a lot of pain. We all deal with our pain in different ways. Some, like Matt Moore, immerse themselves in religious beliefs that intensify their self-hate. Some turn to drugs to self-medicate and end up with serious addictions. Others shut themselves off emotionally from others and can only find intimacy through sex. And others still take their own lives.

    This young man has a very long path ahead of him. I hope he eventually finds whatever peace he seeks.

  13. I don't see how this is dangerous to others who are questioning their sexuality. Its okay to express opinions supporting gay lifestyle but anyone who expresses otherwise, are 'putting others in danger'?!?! please. He is allowed to have this opinion. As long as its not a hate message. and no, saying someone will go to hell for their lifestyle doesn't mean they are spreading a hate message, as long as they are not saying they hate gays or that they will kill gays, etc... they are simply saying what they believe to be the scriptures opinion\God.
