(February 28, 2020) Dr J is speaking with Traci DeVette Griggs on Family Policy Matters. Their topic is the "seamless garment," an idea that has had several meanings over the years. In the 1980s, it meant a consistent position on the life issues; more recently, it has been used as a way to downplay the horrors of abortion in favor of other issues. Dr J has some thoughts on this.

This week we offer the powerful testimony of Paul Darrow, a victim of the Sexual Revolution whose transformed life has given hope to many entangled in same-sex attraction.

Paul moved to Manhattan immediately after graduating college and became an international fashion model, a pleasure-seeker, and an atheist. His former hedonistic life, glamorous career, and ties to high society have provided him with invaluable insight into today’s alternative lifestyles. But Jesus changed his life forever. Shortly after converting to Catholicism, Paul was surprised to find himself being filmed as a subject for the award-winning movie Desire of the Everlasting Hills, which won the JP2 Film Festival Award. Paul's conversion story is so powerful that he was invited to speak at the Angelicum in Rome, where he pleaded with Cardinals and other clergy to defend and propagate the teachings of the Catholic Church on homosexuality. Paul has appeared on EWTN and is a frequent guest on talk radio from coast to coast. Whether giving presentations to high school and college students, priests, seminarians, penitentiary inmates or Catholic groups across the U.S. and in Europe, Paul shares his unusual testimony in order to be a living example that God’s grace is more powerful than even the greatest of human temptations.

This week's podcast is a "primer" in Gender Ideology by Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse. She spoke to a Catholic group of teens and their parents in Arizona last week, and after her talk, she took questions from the group. We thought it made a perfect introduction to the subject, including offering answers to those struggling with pressures from friends and the media on transgender issues.

We hope to produce many other "primers" on topics of critical import to the family, marriage, and children's rights. We kind of think of it as "Basic Training" in "resisting" the politically-correct world. As we say in the introduction:

Faith, love, and hope are being destroyed in the hearts of vulnerable people. Life and death are literally in the balance. This is your "basic training" in a war for societal sanity.

RUTH INSTITUTE RESISTANCE: In these basic training episodes, Dr. Morse will dispel politically-correct confusion, expose lies, and reveal freedom-giving truth.

The Ruth Institute is building a coalition to defend marriage and the family, stand up for children's rights, support victims of the Sexual Revolution, and facilitate a civilization of love. JOIN THE RUTH INSTITUTE RESISTANCE.
