Why I outed “ex-gay” Matt Moore

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.

  2. Let him that is without sin cast the first stone!

    I am 39 yrs old and I’ve been gay since I was about 7 yrs old. I have always felt like a pariah in the gay or straight communities. I didn’t act like a girl and wasn’t interested in hanging out with girls all the time.
    I set at the “cool” table at school and I was popular! I wasn’t picked on nor was I asked about who I was attracted to, we just had fun! High-school was pretty great for me! I went around on the weekends to parties with the football players, rich kids, popular kids, cheerleaders, etc. So I was by no means an outcast!
    When I started going to bars things changed, quickly! Every person there was so fake and I didn’t like doing what they wanted to do (drink, dance, scream like girls, giggle) so most of my time was spent at tha bar, drinking. Finally, I started dating a cop and he and I stayed together for about 8mths until I ran into his “only boyfriend”. I’m not one of those fools who stays and cries, that kind of uselessness.
    All this time I just felt like something was incredibly wrong and I knew what I was doing was a sin. I would want sex until it happened and then I would feel dirty on the inside!
    6yrs ago I got saved and I thought I would be made straight, but as so often, it didn’t happen. I would pray and pray for God to change me, especially after beginning to study the Scripture and it made it clear that same-sex is a sin! Not that I didn’t know before somehow!
    People would tell me I was born that way and I needed to stop hating myself. The TRUTH is that we are all born sinners from the fall of Adam and Eve. When we are born the devil begins to influence our behavior and THAT IS HOW I WAS BORN GAY! God had nothing to do with it or if we are made gay by God then consider murderers, fornicators, thieves, liers, petifiles, rapest, etc. are they to be excused because they were like that from when they were kids? God forbid!
    I was living with a man that I considered my husband since we were together for 10 yrs and we both got saved at about the same time. At first he believed same-sex sex was wrong too but then after awhile he wanted to say we were born that way instead. We had stopped having sex for over 3 yrs but I considered us family. I was living close to God and while praying one night I told God that whatever it took I wanted to be closer to Him. Imagine my surprise when God asked me if I would love Him still if He made my partner leave! I thought about it for a few mins and said yes I would still love Him (GOD). It was not long after that that Brian met a guy and left.
    I will be truthful here and say that it was horrible! I started hooking up with every guy I could until God brought me back to my senses and I replanted of my transgressions and started for praying for God to change me again! Now God is truly amazing and spoke to me and said what He told Paul that His Grace is sufficient for me and that His strength is made perfect in weakness.
    This time I stopped praying for God to change me and that He instead help me be able to help others who were struggling with the same feelings. He did just that, doors were opened that wouldn’t and couldn’t unless God opened them.
    Finally, about 7mnts ago I woke up like any other except, when I saw a man that before would have pumped me full of lust to the point that he would have been on my mind all day, I felt NOTHING nor do I feel it for women. However, the love inside of me for all people grew and grew! My soul concern now is to help people see how much they need salvation. When I pray I feel so unworthy of His blessings but then to have had Him touch me and release me from that splintered, heavy, cumbersome cross truly I still stand in awe!!
    Hear me, PLEASE, homosexuality is not a gift from a Holy God it is a wicked trick of satan but The Lord has beaten satan and deliverance IS yours.
    No doubt many that read this will despise me and hate me and while if I could I would let you experience it for a day! Many of you may pen disturbing letters to me or hate me enough to want me dead but I do not fear what man can do to me! I ask that God open your eyes and plant a seed in your heart. This I say because I love all of you: if you continue to live a homosexual lifestyle, dress like women, talk like women, etc you are going to HELL! IT’S THAT SIMPLE! Hell was not made for humans it was made for the devil and his angels! No a loving God will not send anyone there, YOU WILL SEND YOURSELF!
    Remember God loves you but He hates the sin in your life and that can be removed if you humble your pride and repent for them and then study and live your life as close to the teachings of the Word,with all due haste, and give up that gay life, the lies, the fornication, the adulterey, the idolatry, etc.

      Yeah, I know that you really, really get off on the stories of hell, zombies, necromancers, dragons, unicorns, demons, talking snakes and donkeys, witches, wizards, various gods, foreskin chopping, rape, child sacrifice, murder and genocide in the Bible, but you’re a huge asshole for posting this shit here. If you want to believe that a multi-dimensional, material-non-material, being created all of existence with you in mind, be my guest. Just be decent enough to keep your delusions to yourself.

      Did I go on your site to spread the good news that your god is just as fake as the 1000s of other gods throughout the history of humanity? Nope. Did I go on your site to mock the fact that you apparently think that an invisible sky man spends his time fretting over how many times and in what way our particular species of ape has sex? Nope. Did I track you down to mock the idea that you believe that for 96,000 years you think your god watched humanity struggle, but that apparently 2000 years ago, he decided that he’d had enough and thought that the best way to fix things was – not to go to China where people were educated and had writing – to go to the most illiterate, superstitious part of the desert where to reveal himself to one of the various tribes who were ALL caught up in differing messianic cults so that he could sacrifice himself to himself? Nope. Did I go to your site to tell you how disgusting I find your preoccupation with human sacrifice and vicarious redemption? Did I track you down to tell you that you pollute the most important word of all: the word love, by making love compulsory, by saying you MUST love an invisible father-figure who you also must fear? Do I follow you around telling you that indulging in this kind of delusion is not mentally, morally or intellectually healthy? Nope.

      Take your head trip someplace else. I get that you feel some oneness, some compassion and some bliss when you think you pray. So do people of every other religion ever. I get that you think YOUR god is special because he rose from the dead. MANY other gods supposedly did the same. I know that you can’t accept the fact that the oldest book of the bible was written 70 years after the supposed death of Jesus and I know that it never occurred to you to wonder why Paul don’t know the Jesus story in your own bible.

      Take your cult of the scapegoat, death and human sacrifice someplace else.

      Bryan Matthews, you keep publicly claiming you are no longer gay, but privately you admit you are not heterosexual. It’s too late to play that game. Every major evangelical ex-gay ministry with decades of experience in the English-speaking world has shut down the past year after the leaders of the oldest and largest ex-gay ministries admitted NOBODY CHANGED FROM HOMOSEXUAL TO HETEROSEXUAL.

    • Jerry Reiter says:

      Bryan Matthews, you hate gays even though you are one your entire life. And though you go around writing claims you are no longer gay, you admit you feel zero attraction to women and you are not heterosexual. God made you homosexual. Men made you hate yourself. Jesus calls you to love yourself. Remember, love your neighbor as yourself?

  3. THE GREAT POWERFUL SPELL CASTER THAT

    Thank you for all your help prophet.

    • Jerry Reiter says:

      No prophet can undo the work of God, who created some homosexuals in every species science has studied. The ex-gay leaders who claimed change was possible have mostly all admitted the truth: nobody changes from homosexual to heterosexual any more than the other way around. And putting the phone number there is just turning your dial-a-prophet into internet spam
