There's nothing quite as good for a defense, as a good offense. "Ex-gay" Christian Post blogger was interviewed by an unbiased third-party news outlet The Christian Post to delve deep in order to get to the bottom of his gay sex curiosities and proclivities that we reported on earlier in the week. (We wrote "deep" and "bottom" in the same sentence. Ooops!)
So what did La Moore do? He sold his computer and locked down his phone (whaaattt?!?!), so he's not tempted into sin.
Oh, we're serious. More after the jump.
Sometimes we throw cookies and brownies into the trash and squirt some liquid soap all over them to curb our sweet tooth (ala Miranda in SATC), so we totally get where Matt is coming from by selling his computer and his phone…but we also dive right back in to the bin again, wipe off that Palmolive and devour.
So, c'mon now. Really, Matt Moore? And you moved to New Orleans?? What do you think happens in NO?
From The Christian Post article:
Moore says: "I moved to New Orleans as a part of a team of eight individuals desiring to plant a church in the city. I got a job here more quickly than I had anticipated, which put me here ahead of the rest of the team. All of us will be here as of next month. The past few months of being here have been hard and lonely at times. My struggle with sin has intensified since being here."
Team of eight guys? (We're saying guys.) He got there first, which put him ahead of the game…to explore the Dirty South!
But this is the gem:
The Christian Post asks: What boundaries have you established to prevent giving into temptation?
Matt Moore: "I have sold my computer and have had someone put a lock on my phone where I cannot download apps or access the Internet through a non-filtered browser. Ultimately, this isn't the solution. My heart being captured by the grace of God and brought into humble obedience is the solution. But not taking precautions is dumb, so these are the precautions I have taken."
We want to give this guy a hug. C'mon, Matt. You've got your whole life ahead of you. Stop fighting who you really are and embrace that.
