    Anti-gay Michigan pastor resigns after being caught chatting on Grindr

    Pastor Matthew Makela resigned from his post at St. John's Lutheran Church and School in Michigan after he was caught chatting on a gay hook-up app.
    A Michigan pastor who once rallied against same-sex marriage was caught soliciting sex on a gay hook-up app.

    Matthew Makela, an associate pastor at St. John’s Lutheran Church and School in Midland, resigned after he was busted chatting on Grindr — where he told other men he was a “bicurious guy” who “loved making out naked.”

    Gay news site Queerty obtained screenshots of the conversation, which showed Makela sending multiple photos of himself to other men. The married father of two confirmed the authenticity of the screenshots to Queerty, but would not offer further comment.

    Makela stepped down after the article went public, the Midland Daily News reported.

    “Pastor (Makela) has acknowledged that there was sin and repentance, and I have testified that there is indeed forgiveness through the same Lord who forgives all our sins,” Senior Pastor Rev. Daniel Kempin said.

    Makela repeatedly condemned same-sex marriage and homosexuality, according to Queerty.

    In a now-deleted comment posted to an anti-gay marriage newspaper column penned by a fellw pastor, Makela compared homosexuality to alcoholism and suggested gay people could overcome same-sex attraction with enough support.

    “I love people who have same sex attraction, and so does God,” he wrote. “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.”

    Makela has worked at St. John's Lutheran Church since 2010.
    In a September Facebook post he again repeated his anti-gay views.

    “Changing the culture begins with changing our own culture of marriage and family, taking the marriage union with the utmost seriousness and welcoming children in our church,” he wrote, explaining the gay marriage and divorce did not “reflect God’s will of love and submission.”

    But on Grindr, the pastor asked to hook up with other men, explaining that he had a girlfriend so he couldn’t “do evenings or overnights.”

    “I love making out naked,” he wrote. “Oral and massage.”

    “Also love to cuddle,” he continued before sending more photos of himself.

    Makela’s biography on the church’s website has been taken down, but it once said that he started serving as a pastor in 2010.

    More anti-Christianity piling on. I'm sure this stuff happens, but the ykw owned media just doesn't let up. How about reporting more of the rabbi crimes, or Hindu or the Muslim crimes? Or the well known black pastor sexual stuff? Pastors at black Baptist churches are just as guilty, perhaps more so. The info is just as readily available. It affects all religions. Let's see the percentages across all religions, you fucking poseur 'journalists'. I don't even have a dog in this fight really, I just want accurate reporting of facts. Guess I'm alone with my circle of friends and family.

    :clap:

    I'm an atheist and don't understand why it's primarily stories about Catholic priests that make big news. Not to minimize the abhorrent behavior and culture of coverup that's taken place for a very long time, but it definitely goes on in other faiths

    i think the reason is because they are not only preaching against it, but causing policies against it and effecting ppls lives, (while at the same time doing it themselfs)


    ppl figured out a way to make this about race, really?

    Do Lutherans have priests, or are they just copying the cool collar?

    There are hypocrites in all walks of life. You rarely see the non-relgious ones called out.

    Hating gays is such a pointless and useless use of energy. Unless it's Wiggy.

    But it's ykw that proudly and openly owns the media. Therefore, it stands to reason that they have an interest in protecting their own and dividing the rest. And yes. Things are about race because society is a racial construct, not the other way around as the above mentioned media would like us to believe. I used to accept things at face value. Used to believe the equalist lie. Hell, I used to ignore the truths that were staring me in the face, even after those equalist lies bit me in the ass. Admittedly, life is harder since my 'awakening', but truth must be pursued. That's the short reply. End rant.
