Anti-Gay Pastor Seems Pro-Gay On Grindr Profile
Pastor Matt Makela, a married father of five, reportedly routinely argued gay people should sublimate their same-sex desires—while he was simultaneously chatting up guys on the app.
In the screenshotted messages, published by Queerty, the good rev tells a potential date, “I love making out naked. Oral and massage. And i top. Also love to cuddle.” Meanwhile, publicly, on his now-deleted Facebook page, he compared homosexuality to alcoholism and posited less-than-charitable views about transgender people…
According to Queerty, Makela did confirm the Grindr profile is real but declined to comment beyond that. He’s reportedly resigned from his associate pastor job at St. John’s church.
In the meantime, the church is urging its congregation not to read or turn on the television so that they might avoid inadvertently discovering what happened to that nice pastor man.
