One of the most reprehensible 'advice' columns you'll ever read. For shame, Matt Moore

by Jeremy Hooper

This "ex-gay" advice has the power to do real and lasting damage. It's shameful:

Matthew1 SNIP: The gay lifestyle is driven by sex, not love. But I didn’t realize that until God took me out of that lifestyle and placed me on the outside, so I could look in with clear eyes. Yeah, that’s right, God. The God I didn’t believe in. The God who never answered me when I prayed as a kid. I can’t fully explain in words how it happened, but now that I look back I can see that God was drawing me to Himself for a period of a few months. I didn’t know it, of course, I was just living my life how I wanted to and He was nowhere on my radar. But one day I just knew that I had to have Him, I had to know Him, I had to live for Him. I wanted to live for Him. So I began to.

So did God make me straight? Nope. He made me ALIVE. I still am attracted to men, but all of the sudden, things became so much bigger than my sexual preferences.

God wants you to value Him more than anything else in this life… and that may include your desire for a romantic relationship right now (if it’s a same-sex relationship you desire).
Dear Gay Kid [Christian Post blog] (H/t: Str8Grandmother)

As I wrote on Matt's site: I have been with my husband nine years, and he will be the only man in my life until the day that I die. I will spend at least a portion of every one of those days protecting LGBT kids from dangerous "advice" like this.

Oh, and look how this "ex-gay" voice closes out his post:
