Interview: Matt Moore on Being 'Outed,' Same-Sex Attraction, and God's Grace

Moore conducted an email interview with The Christian Post to address his joining Grindr, his daily struggle with same-sex attraction, how the church has treated him, and what God's grace means to him after this experience.
