Grindr has made the decision to remove adverts from Christian group GodLife. It seems odd that a Christian group would choose a gay dating app to promote their “Four Steps To God” programme. That is unless they are trying to change the ways of the gays. Perhaps promoting the “GodLife” over the gay life? However GodLife denied these claims when speaking to Australian website Same Same. A representative from the Christian site said, “We do not judge anyone. We simply want you to know the love of God and what His son did to save you from your sin. I am not trying to change you from who you are at all. God made you just the way you are.” With that said, Grindr has just made the decision to remove the adverts, which have been spotted on the gay app by users worldwide. Speaking to Pink News today a Grindr spokesperson said: “We have both direct advertisers as well third party ad networks which supply advertising to the app. The ad you reference was served by one of these third party ad networks. “While we do have safeguards in place to monitor for ads on third party networks, we do serve billions of ads on our network, so there is the occasional chance that an inappropriate ad may appear. “In this instance, we’ve reached out to the third party networks to have the ad removed. “While we are pleased to learn that Godlife.com seems to be an inclusionary organization, we are working to remove this ad from Grindr.”
