The Christian Institute has carried a blog post from a Christian ‘ex-gay’ activist who was caught using Grindr.

The British pressure group – headed by Colin Hart – has opposed a raft of equality legislation, including same-sex marriage, the Equality Act, the repeal of Section 28 and equal age of consent.

Today, they reprinted an article from Matt Moore, a Christian activist who claims to have been cured of homosexuality.

However, Mr Moore was exposed last year as a user of the gay hookup app Grindr – a fact which is conveniently forgotten in the CI’s report.

He said last year: “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.”

He wrote today: “Homosexual desires exist within people because people possess sinful natures.”

The Christian Institute claimed last month that the number of gays on TV is “out of proportion” with reality.

Previously, the Christian Institute claimed there aren’t enough gays in UK to justify giving them equal rights.
