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. That is where Dr J met him!
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.

These witnesses' lives prove that being "gay" is NOT immutable. Each of them has found a way out, and testifies that there is a better way to live. The Ruth Institute has collected many of these "former LGBTQIA+" and we want YOU to share their truths! It's as simple as copying a link from the Ruth Institute's Cloud of Witnesses and pasting it on your Facebook, or Twitter, or Instagram timeline!
We have the numbers and the truth that the Sexual Revolution has not made people happy. Hundreds of millions of people have been irreparably harmed by the Sexual Revolution. If you've been harmed by the Sexual Revolution, whether a child (or spouse) of divorce, a single mother, a post-abortive man or woman, a gender dysphoric, or a former LGBTQIA+, PEOPLE NEED TO HEAR YOUR STORY!
