Why I outed “ex-gay” Matt Moore

February 9, 2013 ·

After my last post about a profile on Grindr using ex-gay writer Matt Moore’s photo and personal details, I contacted Moore, who responded as follows:

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.

While I’m glad that Moore chose to own up to this rather than continuing to make excuses as others have done in the same situation, it’s disappointing that he ever put himself in such a deceptive and hypocritical situation in the first place. 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.

The BackStory…

Matt Moore is yet another one of those ex-gay folks who thinks that he can change his sexual orientation by pretending to be heterosexual.  He spreads his fallacious logic to others who are suffering from homophobia-driven fear, shame and guilt on the Christian Post. Moore, like so many, many other ex-gay guilt-ridden faux heterosexuals figured out that he couldn’t, in fact, change his orientation and went looking for a man on Grindr… and just like so many before him, he was caught and his hypocrisy was exposed.
