ANTI-GAY PASTOR: Father Of 5 Quits Church After Getting Outed On Gay Hook Up Site Called ‘Grindr’

Those who scream the loudest are usually doing what they rage against. Please note that…

A married Michigan reverend with five children who publicly came out against homosexuality has resigned from his associate pastor job after his profile on the gay hook-up app Grindr was exposed.

Reverend Matthew Makela of Midland worked at St John’s Lutheran Church where he was called a man who enjoyed ‘family, music, home improvement, gardening and landscaping, and sports’.
