‘Gay cure’ Christian advocate exposed on Grindr

Matt Moore, a blogger for the Christian Post, who writes extensively about he was ‘cured’ from ‘sinful homosexuality’ by turning to Christ, has been recently caught using gay hookup app Grindr.

Speaking with Freethought Blogs writer, Zinnia Joes, Moore confirmed it was his profile and said: ‘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’.

Moore told Joes that he informed the pastor of his church about using Grindr before the story reached the media.

Last year Moore discussed his triumph over his sexuality saying: ’I had a yearning in my soul that God had placed there for Himself, but I was perverting that desire and directing it toward people instead of my Creator.

‘… Because of the working of the Holy Spirit in my heart, I am able to see clearly that the homosexual feelings I have are a perversion of the gift of sex that God gave mankind’.

‘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’.

Apparently neither Christ nor ‘cure’ was enough to hold back Moore from trying to hookup with fellow ‘sinners’.

Moore has been promoting his ‘ex-gay’ views on several Christian websites, although denying such advice and ideas could be harmful to others.

In her blog post Jones commented on the idea of men who underwent the ‘reparative’ ‘therapy’: ‘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 practising what they preach’.

Gay blog Towleroad slammed Moore saying that he ‘is not only deluding himself, but his writings are dangerous to others who may be reading them with questioning feelings’.

On 17 May, 2012 the Pan American Health Organization stated that services that purport to ‘cure’ gay people lack medical justification and represent a serious threat to the health and well-being of affected people.
