The President of gay dating app Grindr who made this known in a now-deleted Facebook post, had accused HTC president and CEO Cher Wang of supporting anti-LGBTQ causes through two nonprofit organizations and attempting to influence Taiwan’s same-sex marriage decision.

Chen who further disclosed that he will be boycotting smartphones and accessories from her Taiwan-based company for a lifetime, wrote;

‘There are people who believe that marriage is a holy matrimony between a man and a woman. I agree but that’s none of our business,’ Chen wrote in Chinese, which was translated by an independent translator for INTO.

‘There are also people who believe that the purpose of marriage is to create children that carry their DNA. That’s also none of our business. There are people that are simply different from you, who desperately want to get married. They have their own reasons,’ he added

He continued by taking a jab at HTC’s Wang: ‘Getting married is a personal thing, rich can’t donate to the real poor hungry war disaster that needs help? Why spend money to stop people in love from getting married? Is nothing important in life?’

‘Right, I won’t buy HTC Products for a lifetime, and I won’t donate any money to Taiwan’s Christian groups for a lifetime!’

Reacting to this, Zach Stafford, the Editor-in-Chief of INTO a digital magazine owned by Grindr, wrote;

 ‘Today we at INTO have learned that the current president of Grindr believes that same-sex marriage is a ”holy matrimony between men and women.”’

‘We are reporting this as the media property owned by Grindr and will be updating this as the story develops,’ he wrote.

However Chen who reacted to this alleged that the article was ‘unbalanced and misleading,’ and further called out a staff writer Matthew Rodriguez.

‘Matthew, I wish you asked my comments before you publish this. This article is unbalanced and misleading. It hurts my feelings and it also hurts INTO’s and Grindr’s reputation,’ Chen replied.

‘The reason I said marriage is a holy matrimony between a man and a woman is based on my own personal experience. I am a straight man married to a woman I love and I have two beautiful daughters I love from the marriage. This is how I feel about my marriage,’ he explained.

Chen, whose 60-year-old conservative aunt got into a ‘heated discussion’ after the controversy sparked by his Facebook post, further wrote:

‘I am a huge advocate for LGBTQ+ rights since I was young. I support gay marriage and I am proud that I can work for Grindr,’ he concluded.

His comments came after voters in Taiwan rejected a referendum this month to legalise same-sex marriage in what would have been the first country in Asia to do so, after a constitutional court declared it legal in May.

  1. Imaging even the gay president knows what there are doing is wrong because God says every man need a partner which is woman not his fellow man

  2. Everyone with their own choices no need to judge anyone as that is not our job as humans or Christians, judgement is for God.

  3. Even the devil knows the Bible… So being the president of the gay association, he is aware of the fact that marriage is between a man and a woman.

  4. From generation to generation,marriage is always between a man and a woman..so they won’t to change the meaning now

  5. This world is totally changing everyday. I hope now that he knows that marriage is for man and woman he can stop been a gay president

  8. Thank God, you have come to realize the truth”that marriage is between a man and a woman as God made it”so stop decieving people about gay marriage,is highly prohibited before God,the Victims repent from this act

  9. Thank God he speaks his mind and truth, he doesn’t want to deceive them, he is married with two lovely daughter

  10. So when you know the right thing before.. Why are you nw doing the wrong thing by promoting gay marriage

  11. never judge or crucify anyone,we all make our different choices.because we are not the same so we can’t judge each other.

  12. Whether you buy HTC products or not
    Or donate money to christian or not
    Its still none of our business Chen

  13. People no what is right and wrong but the devil in them will never allow them to let go.God did not create Adam and Steve he created Adam and eve.

  14. he even agreed that marriage Is for a man and a woman not man and man. Why is he misleading all those people

  15. So he knows the truth that marriage is the union between a man and woman and he is promoting gay.. Some people have to wake up from their dream land.

  16. Thank God mr president knows what he is doing he knows the truth about marriage that is between man and a woman.

  17. I pity this guy called Chen because he is negating God’s principles and covenant on marriage and I pray the wrath of God will not visit him.

  18. Everyone has his life to live.If the gay president which to adopt what he said,so be it.And if he changes his mind,na him sabi..

  19. He said the truth…God definition of marriage cannot be changed by people who are possessed with evil spirit.. calling themselves gay.

  20. The bible clearly states that marriage is between a man and a woman, it’s is an institution design by God

  21. God took a rib from Adam and created Eve. In doing so He instituted marriage and sanctified it. He didn’t create another man from Adam or create a woman from Eve. Chen should stop trying to create a smoke screen for fear of losing what he had. Nevertheless, I’ll leave it to God to judge.

  22. thank God this is coming from the gay president and he knows it was not man’s opinion or saying but the fact still remain that it was stated in the holy bible.

  23. That’s was how God intended it to be from the beginning before idiot like him started doing it the other way round

  24. You see y we say God is not a man, even the people who device means to legalise same sex marriage has npw come out to kick against it

  25. Everyone with their own choices no need to judge anyone , everything is in hand of our creator, judgement is for God

  26. Thank God he has now come to his senses and realized that what he was supporting then is very bad. Marriage is a holy matrimony not sinful matrimony.

  27. I think he is trying to come clean. Maybe he is tried of being gay. Even the devil himself knows that marriage is for man and woman

  28. The truth they say is bitter….why are they crucifying him for that? Hell is real, gay should have that n mind..

  29. Every single person practicing gay knows the truth deep down but self desire and satisfaction overclouds the reality. If your parents decided to be gays how can u possibly come in existence? Obama approved gay marriage in the US yet he’s not,,

  30. This guy is defending his business empire. We all have the responsibility to preach and do the right as required by GOD.

  31. Comment*interesting so the president knows the right thing but yet his the leader what a marvelous world we live in

  32. But..he is saying the truth for crying out loud, marriage is between a man and a woman, if the gays are not comfortable with it that’s their problem.

  33. So most countries are really legalizing this rubbish, the Bible has said it all, they were left with reprobate mind, doing what is not convenient, God should just forgive and deliver me, I hate gay with passion

  34. Even the president of gay dating site,know that it is not right for a man to marry,because it is not right before God

  35. Why is he now in support of gay marriage when he knows marriage is between man and woman (holy matrimony)

  36. Even a gay president knows d truth …..my issue nw is y his he still supporting gay marriage wen he know it’s btw a man nd woman

  37. No man can change what GOD has put in place, from d beginning GOD created man and woman not d other way round

  38. This world is really changing everyday, things are really happening. I hope now that he knows that marriage is for man and woman then stop been a gay president.

  39. It is none from creation that marriage is between a man and a woman because when God gave Adam a life partner he gave him a woman and not man,and we all have our different understanding why we marry
