Ex-gay Christian Advocate Discovered on Gay Sex App Grindr.

An “ex-gay” Christian advocate, who blogs about how religion saved him from a life of homosexual sin, was recently discovered on a gay sex hookup app called Grindr.

Matt Moore, a blogger for the Christian Post, writes extensively about how Christianity has helped him to turn away from a gay lifestyle. But, apparently it didn’t help him quite enough to steer him away from Grindr.

I am wrong in having been on grindr. I haven’t changed my views on homosexuality, the bible, etc.,” he said to Jones. “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.”

When attempting to explain his gay desires, Moore wrote, “I had a yearning in my soul that God had placed there for Himself, but I was perverting that desire and directing it toward people instead of my Creator.”

Although he “never really thought, ‘I want God to cure me of my homosexuality,'” Moore turned to religion for the cure. He says that every day he deals with desires, but claims it is worth the fight “because of the working of the Holy Spirit in my heart, I am able to see clearly that the homosexual feelings I have are a perversion of the gift of sex that God gave mankind.”

The poor guy is bullied and brainwashed by those around him that he actually buys what they are telling him.  I can tell you as someone who connects to Heaven and the spirit world on a daily basis that Heaven, God and Jesus DO NOT see homosexuality as a sin.  In fact, what they have told me is that they see no distinction and are happy to see two souls in love.   They say that we can set up our lives here as we choose. We have free will and some people, particularly the churches, live in fear and unfortunately choose to believe something about gays that is simply not true. You are all loved equally.   At the same time, when you seek out the pleasures of the flesh on a sex app like Grindr though, you are seeking to cover up inadequate feelings about yourself that can only be fulfilled by a love of self and of God.  This goes for heterosexual or homosexual sex addictions whereas a committed love relationship with another soul regardless of their gender is accepted.

Male Couples Face Pressure to Fill Cradles

 

Fabrizio Costantini for The New York Times
John Corvino, right, and his partner, Mark Lock, with Mr. Lock’s niece. Neither wants children.
By 

WASHINGTON — When the jubilant couple were wed in June, they exchanged personalized vows and titanium rings, cheered the heartfelt toasts and danced themselves breathless. Then, as the evening was winding down, unexpected questions started popping up.

One after another, their guests began asking: Are you going to have kids? When are you going to have kids?

Tom Lotito and Matt Hay, both 26, could not help but feel moved. They never imagined as teenagers that they would ever get married, much less that friends and family members would pester them about having children.

“It’s another way that I feel like what we have is valid in the eyes of other people,” said Mr. Hay, who married Mr. Lotito in June before 133 guests.

As lawmakers and courts expand the legal definition of the American family, same-sex couples are beginning to feel the same what-about-children pressure that heterosexual twosomes have long felt.

For some couples, it is another welcome sign of their increasing inclusion in the American mainstream. But for others, who hear the persistent questions at the office, dinner parties and family get-togethers, the matter can be far more complicated.

Many gay men had resigned themselves to the idea that they would never be accepted by society as loving parents and assumed they would never have children. They grieved that loss and moved on, even as other gay men and lesbians fully embraced childless lives. So the questions can unearth bittersweet feelings and cause deep divisions within a couple over whether to have children at all, now that parenting among same-sex couples is becoming more common.

The process can be also daunting logistically and financially, as would-be parents wrestle with whether to adopt or use a surrogate. And once they have children, many same-sex couples still endure the inevitable criticism — spoken or unspoken — from those who remain uncomfortable with the notion of their being parents.

But support for same-sex parents is growing steadily among Americans. A Pew Research Center survey conducted in July and released last week found for the first time that a majority of people surveyed — 52 percent — said that gay men and lesbians should be allowed to adopt children, up from 46 percent in 2008 and 38 percent in 1999.

The shift in public opinion and the simple question — Are you having children? — is nothing short of a marvel to some gay men, perhaps even more so than to lesbians, for whom giving birth has always been an option.

Greg Moore, 62, a retired corporate manager in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., shakes his head with wonder when he sees young male couples chattering about their toddlers. That possibility seemed hopelessly out of reach when he and his 74-year-old husband, who have been together for 44 years and married in 2008, dreamed of having children. “Gay people didn’t have kids,” he said wistfully. “Straight people had kids.”

Popular culture is helping rewrite that script. Gay men who have children, or are considering having children, are becoming increasingly visible on network television. In “Modern Family,” the nation’s most popular television show, the couple Mitchell and Cameron considered adopting a second child this past season. In “Scandal,” a new ABC series, a middle-aged White House staff member groused about his partner’s desire to adopt a baby from Ethiopia. And this fall, a new NBC sitcom called “The New Normal” will feature a gay couple and their surrogate.

The shift is also reflected in census data. Between 2000 and 2010, among same-sex couples raising children, the percentage of couples with adopted children increased to 20 percent from 9 percent, according to an analysis by Gary Gates, a demographer at the Williams Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles. (Most same-sex couples with adopted children are lesbians, but gay men make up a growing share, accounting for nearly a third of such couples in 2010, up from a fifth in 2000.)

“The definition of family is unquestionably evolving,” Dr. Gates said.

But he also noted that many Americans remain deeply opposed to gay parents raising children. Same-sex couples are explicitly prohibited from adopting in two states — Utah and Mississippi — and they face significant legal hurdles in about half of all other states, particularly because they cannot legally marry in those states. And some religious leaders have refused to provide adoption services to gay couples.

Roman Catholic bishops in Washington, D.C., Illinois and Massachusetts have shuttered adoption services rather than comply with requirements that they consider same-sex couples as adoptive parents.

As a result, even in Democratic strongholds like Washington, some gay men keep their dreams of having children mostly to themselves.

But for Jeff Krehely, 35, who has been married for six years, there is no escaping the question in his social circles. His friends ask. His colleagues ask. His parents are so eager that they have taken to sending birthday cards to his two cats (they call them the “grandkitties”).

On the Fourth of July, when Mr. Krehely and his husband sipped iced coffee with several other gay couples, he knew it was only a matter of time before the subject came up. Three of the five couples said they were seriously considering adopting.

“Everyone’s asking: What’s your timetable? What’s your plan?” said Mr. Krehely, a policy analyst, who is still weighing whether to take the plunge.

But some gay men who have no plans to have children view the shift as something of a mixed blessing. On one hand, they welcome the sense of inclusion that comes with always being asked about children. On the other hand, they are always being asked about children.

Rudolph Chandler, 57, and George Walker, 43, who married in 2010, thought long and hard before they decided against having children. They say they greatly admire their friends who are parents. But these days, they are asked so often about their child-rearing plans that they roll their eyes oh-so-subtly when it comes up. “It’s irritating, tiring,” said Mr. Chandler, a health economist.

John Corvino, 43, chairman of the philosophy department at Wayne State University in Detroit, has even come up with a standard response that he leavens with a dash of humor when asked if he wants children: “To shovel the snow and mow the lawn, sure,” he says. “Beyond that, no.”

As for Mr. Lotito and Mr. Hay, the couple who married in June, in North Bethesda, Md., they said they were taken aback by the inquiries about children on their big night. “I was kind of like, ‘The wedding’s still going on, guys,’ ” Mr. Lotito said. “It’s flattering, but that’s really not on my radar.”

Mr. Lotito, who handles contracts for a federal agency, said he has never really wanted children. Mr. Hay is an elementary school music teacher. “He has like 800 children a week,” Mr. Lotito said. “It’s nice not to have them when he comes home.”

That has not deterred friends and relatives from continuing to ask. Mr. Lotito’s mother, Lisa Sanno, who dreams of grandchildren and asked about them (yet again) at the wedding, has been thinking about all the options.

At the moment, she is enamored with the idea of a surrogate who might give her son and son-in-law each a biological child. “They’re young,” said Ms. Sanno, ever the optimist. “Maybe they’ll change their minds.”

Marriage Proposal at Madonna concert in Amsterdam.

Cute marriage proposal caught at the Madonna concert in Amsterdam July 2012.

“Who are you going to ask to marry you?” Madonna asked the woman. “Well, do you want to ask him to marry you in front of several hundred thousands of people?”

Madonna handed the mic over to the excited woman — after warning her to not “slobber all over my microphone” — who then asked her boyfriend to marry her. He said “yes,” and a wave of cheers erupted from the crowd.

After taking her mic back, Madonna cheered the couple on, chanting, “Tongues! Tongues! Kiss with tongues!” as they kissed for all to see on the jumbotron.

“I’ll give you once piece of advice. Never go to bed angry,” Madonna told the couple before she got back to the music.

Dude Habits

Madonna treated tens of thousands of ecstatic people in Israel to the inaugural show of her “MDNA” world tour on Thursday night (5/31/12), performing in a country where she has long claimed a special bond.  She rocked and controlled the stage and arena in top form.

She landed in Israel last week, arriving with her children, her boyfriend, Brahim Zaibat and a 70-person entourage. She spent the days leading up to the performance rehearsing for the sold out powerhouse show and visiting Kabbalah centers.

Her spiritual serenity may have been challenged by Israel’s aggressive paparazzi, who have been camped outside her beachfront hotel and near the stadium where she performed.

For years, violence kept musicians away from Israeli stages. Now, with the ebb of the Palestinian uprising over the last decade, performers planning concerts have faced pressure from activists to cancel their appearances in Israel as political punishment.  This did…

CNN praises Madonna. Why Madonna still leads, others follow

 Madonna performs during the NFL Super Bowl XLVI game halftime show in February in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Madonna performs during the NFL Super Bowl XLVI game halftime show in February in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Editor’s note: LZ Granderson, who writes a weekly column for CNN.com, was named journalist of the year by the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association and a 2011 Online Journalism Award finalist for commentary. He is a senior writer and columnist for ESPN the Magazine and ESPN.com. Follow him on Twitter:@locs_n_laughs Watch him on Tuesdays on CNN Newsroom in the 9 am ET hour.

(CNN) — I thought she was over. Madonna, that is.

I thought she was too old to be referring to herself as a “girl.” I thought pop music passed her by. I thought Lady Gaga had killed her.

And then I look at this week’s Billboard chart and I see I thought wrong.

Her 12th CD, “MDNA” debuted No. 1 on the album chart and she has two singles on the dance-chart Top 10. She’s 53 and the clubs are banging her new stuff, including “Give Me All Your Luvin,” which became her 38th top 10 hit on the pop chart. For those of you keeping score, that’s more than Elvis, more than The Beatles. I’m not saying she’s better, but clearly she’s done — correction — doing more.

This year she won another Golden Globe and her halftime performance at the Super Bowl drew more viewers than the game itself, according to Nielsen. I know the perception is that only gay men care about Madonna, but if that were true, given the 114 million viewers who tuned in to watch her at halftime, maybe “don’t ask, don’t tell” should have been called “just assume.”

The reality is it’s hard for pop music to leave behind someone who keeps leading the pack. Madonna had the highest grossing tour ever for a solo artist (2008) and has sold more than 300 million records worldwide. She’s an ’80s child whose 2005 single “Hung Up” holds the Guinness Book record for topping the charts in 41 countries, while 2012’s MDNA was No. 1 on iTunes in 40 countries.

That’s not “over,” that’s now.

When you look at where Madonna’s career is today in the same week we learned Whitney Houston drowned in a foot of water, you’re reminded that God truly does work in mysterious ways. The two pop icons released debut albums within two years of each other, Madonna in 1983 and Houston in 1985.

Of course, Houston was the former model with a voice for the ages, while Madonna was the thin-voiced tart rolling around on the floor of the MTV music awards in a wedding dress proclaiming that she felt like a virgin. If anyone might have been expected to meet a desperate, tragic end, back then the safe money would have been on Madonna. And yet Houston’s gone, Michael Jackson’s gone, Prince is semi-retired and everyone else, with the exception of U2, is making their money off nostalgia.

Meanwhile, Madonna has methodically become, arguably, the greatest recording artist of all time. Who would’ve thunk it?

As for the music, her latest CD is not breaking any new ground, but it does remind everyone who owns the ground Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce and others are walking on. In fact, each time they receive a royalty check, they should be sending Madonna a cut.

While MDNA is about three songs too long for my taste, I will tell you the first five songs make it very difficult not to want to dance, and that the track “Gang Bang” is pure genius. As you could probably figure out from the title, it’s not radio friendly, but likely not because of what you may think. And that, in a nutshell, is why Madonna is who she is.

You can tell you’re watching a Woody Allen film with the first five minutes of dialogue. You can identify the beautiful prose of Toni Morrison within a couple of pages. But my 15-year-old came home one day and asked who I was listening to. I told him Madonna and my son, who loves techno and hip hop, thought I was joking.

“Seriously… like your Madonna?” he asked.

“Yep,” I said.

“Well, she’s still old but that song’s not.”

The song was “Gang Bang” and I’m glad he left the room before she started singing. As I said, it’s not radio friendly. But then again, it wouldn’t be Madonna if a song like that was.

Obama comes out in support of Same Sex Marriage

It’s about time.  I’m so over listening to people ramble there reasons for not supporting it.  It’s a list of reasons you’d find from someone with zero brain capacity.  They’re the most irrelevant people on the planet.  They shouldn’t be allowed a forum or a voice considering that there also against the media.  The media that they so love to freely use at their disposal.

I was never an Obama fan as he spends too much money, but he gets my applause for this one.  It’s not going to hurt or affect him this election.  For one, whether or not he makes the statement, those that hate the man regardless will not vote for him anyway.  You can’t win them over, but may as well win the millions of other people that originally voted for him.  And he’s made history in the process.  One hundred years from now he’ll be in history books as the first President to actually say something about it.  Marriage equality will exist in every state in this country at that point.  This country that belongs to EVERYONE not just hate-filled bullies who use the not thought out point of view as their reasoning.  They base their decisions on a passage in a book that was added by man, NOT by God.  The only passage they ever pay attention to because their social circles do.  They’re led like cattle and don’t think for themselves.  They also are without heart and insignificant vile creatures.

Michelle Pfeiffer’s statement on Marriage Equality when asked where she stands

Michelle Pfeiffer who has always been gay friendly and has many gay friends has never been one to be political or make a statement about the issue.   However, when recently asked where she stands on it since no one ever hears anything from her on the topic, she had this to say.

Michelle Pfeiffer statement on Marriage Equality when asked where she stands: “I do not know what the big deal is with legalizing same-sex marriage. I don’t understand the problem people have with that. I can’t even wrap my head around that way of thinking. I don’t know if it’s judgmental, bigoted? I don’t know how a person gets to be like that. I mean, who’s it hurting, you know?”

She can be seen in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows which opens this week and People Like Us in June 2012.

Man shoots 4 year old for ‘gay behavior’. CNN & Nancy Grace don’t bother to cover this.

You won’t read about the fate of 4 year old Jadon Higganbothan on the front page of CNN today.

It’s unlikely that Nancy Grace will rage about him on her show. ABC and Fox probably won’t give his death wall to wall coverage.

Because Jadon Higganbothan was not blond, or a girl – but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t lament what happened to him, or why.

In Durham, North Carolina this week Peter Lucas Moses, 27, stood trail facing two counts of first-degree murder.

Moses was the leader of a religious cult who shot the 4 year old boy dead for what he called his ‘gay behavior.’  Moses also shot and killed Antoinetta Yvonne McKoy, 28, because she wanted to leave the cult.

‘In the religious belief of that organization, homosexuality was frowned on,’ Durham County District Attorney Tracey Cline told WRAL.COM.

‘Sometime in October 2010, Smith told Moses that Jadon had hit another child’s bottom, and Moses became angry and started walking around the house with a gun that belonged to Jadon’s mother, Vania Rae Sisk, prosecutors said.

‘He starts screaming, ‘I told you to get rid of him!’ and told Sisk,’How am I going to do this?’ Cline recalled the witness’ account.

‘Moses ordered two of the women to set up computers and speakers in the garage, prosecutors said they were told by the witness. They said he started playing music with the Lord’s Prayer in Hebrew, took Jadon in the garage and shut the door, and the women then heard a gunshot.’

Four years old. Jadon died with the Lord’s Prayer ringing in his ears and hearing himself condemned in the Bible.

Zac Efron drops his shorts; The Lucky One opens this month.

Zac Efron is one of those guy’s who will always be considered to be like fine wine.  He’s only going to continue getting even more attractive the older he gets.  I met him back in December at the Trevor Project which is organization that prevents gay teen suicide.  Also met him on NYE, I can tell you that he is exactly what you expect…a sweetheart.  He surprisingly doesn’t really drink.  He’s not a party animal which makes sense because you don’t look that good getting trashed every week.

I hope he’ll forgive me for posting these photos where he’s reaching into places that shouldn’t be caught by a camera, but he looks so damn good you’ve got to own it and flaunt it.

He’ll be seen this month in the romantic drama, “The Lucky One.”

Uh-oh…he discovers he’s being watched:

He aims the camera right back at them!
