Anti-Gay Pastor Goes On Grindr, Seeks Bottom Who Loves To Cuddle

Oh! Hey! Looks like an anti-gay pastor got caught cruising Grindr! What a surprise! Except not, because this literally happens all the time!

Meet Reverend Matthew Makela!


That little bio was up on his church’s website…until 2pm yesterday, when Queerty began their investigation of Makela on a tip from a reader who had met him on Grindr.

See, as it turns out, Makela not only enjoys family, music, home improvement, gardening, landscaping and sports–he also enjoys fucking men. And cuddling. With men. Not to mention all the naked makeout sessions, also with men.


This, of course, would not be a thing if Makela were not also very vocal about suggesting that being gay was like being born predisposed to alcoholism…

“Thank you, Pastor Dickerson, for believing the Word of God and loving people enough to reveal God’s will for their lives and also His plan of salvation for all believe in Jesus…I love people who have same sex attraction, and so does God. The proof is in the sacrifice He made for all of us who sin…We don’t tell a person born with tendencies to abuse alcohol to keep on giving in to his innate desires because he can’t help it. We try to help him in his struggle.”

Or preaching about the importance of taking one’s marriage vows seriously…


Or calling trans people “opportunistic sickos!”


Queerty contacted Makela about the Grindr pics, and he admits they are authentic.

You know, I don’t know much about the Bible, but I do know there’s something in there about people in glass houses not throwing stones. It’s pretty crappy to use your day job to suggest that there is something wrong with LGBT people, and to then turn around and go cruising for bottoms who like to cuddle on Grindr. It’s also pretty crappy to go on and on about how other people are ruining marriage by not taking it seriously enough, when you are running around on your wife.

I believe that everyone who wants some hot sex on Grindr should go have some hot sex on Grindr! However! I don’t believe that anyone who spends their days working to make life harder for gay people should ever be able to find any gay men to make his dick harder for him. That’s a privilege you lose when you open your mouth and tell other gay people they need to stop being gay.
