A self-proclaimed "ex-gay" blogger who wrote extensively for the Christian Post about "coming out of the homosexual lifestyle" was recently discovered seeking the companionship of other men on the popular gay geosocial networking app Grindr.
"I can, in truth, firmly say that the longer I keep turning away from my homosexual desires, the less in strength they become," Moore wrote in "My Story: Homosexuality, Drunkenness, Grace and Redemption."
Several months later, Moore was still fighting back his natural inclinations.
Many, many days I have failed to fight perfectly. I have at many times in my walk stooped down and willingly spoon-fed myself the familiar, vile vomit that is sin. Yet, in each and every one of my failures- I was given grace; grace to repent and to keep following after Jesus.
Though the fact that the Grindr profile used the same photo of Moore found on his Christian Post page left room for equivocation, Moore himself quickly confirmed to Jones that it was truly him on Grindr, and that he had once again strayed from the Righteous Path.
He continued: "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."
Jones says she's glad Moore confessed, but is disappointed by his needless hypocrisy.
"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," she wrote on her blog. "But privately, they often seem to have trouble practicing what they preach."
