You Can Quit Being Gay, but You Can’t Quit Grindr

Oh, how easily one falls down the path of shame and sin! Isn’t it strange how it often happens to high-profile religious people who make a point to never, ever, ever do bad stuff? Not like, murder-bad stuff, but buttsex-bad stuff. Such is the case of Matt Moore, a gentleman who beat the gay away with prayer and God and such, who was then discovered using Grindr. Grindr is hard to quit, you guys.

Blogger Zinnia Jones received a tip that Moore, a Christian writer who has written extensively about being an "ex-gay," showed up on the dating app. Of course it was actually Moore and not some imposter, because, duh, who would use a fake picture on an app that is designed to meet other people in person for various activities, ranging from hugging to boning? Moore admitted his error in typical ex-gay fashion:

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.

Christianity is SO CONVENIENT! I love a good blank-slate, especially after being caught on Grindr. I’ll keep that in mind if the temptation ever hits me and someone catches me. "Oh, well, sorry! God and stuff. The end!"

Nicolas Cage In Talks For Christian End-Times Reboot ‘Left Behind’

Unless you have an evangelical Christian in your life, you probably did not see the Kirk Cameron-starring Left Behind films about "the   Rapture." But you might get your chance again with a big budget, mainstream remake starring Nicolas Cage. Same religious end-times message, with more action movie clichés — AKA Jesus Twilight.

The Left Behind books, written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, are an action-packed series of 16 novels that pits the Anti-Christ against all of humanity; total sales for the series have surpassed 65 million copies and spawned two spin-off series and a video game. In 2000, evanglical Christian Kirk Cameron starred in a film adaptation of the first Left Behind novel (which was sequalized as well) but The Hollywood Reporter reports Hollywood is eyeing a more mainstream remake "in the mold of a classic disaster film." Naturally this is where Nic Cage comes in.

Writers/producers Paul Lalonde and John Patus, who worked on the original film and its sequals, have penned the mainstream screenplay through the faith-oriented film company Cloud Ten and are seeking a $15 million budget. No word on whether Cage’s involvement with Left Behind will be anything more than "in talks," but something tells me Jesus Twilight will be right up his batshit crazypants alley.
