Matt Fradd, Catholic author and speaker, presents “The Porn Myth,” 2/7

Wednesday, February 7 at 3 p.m. in the Commonwealth Room, DUC
Character U Keynote      Free and open to the public
“It’s just harmless entertainment,” “She’s willing to do it,” “It’s not like I’m supporting the industry.” These and many other myths prevent many of us from seeing pornography for what it truly is: a diabolical counterfeit for love. In this entertaining presentation, Matt exposes what he believes are 7 of the most common myths about porn. Then, Matt untwists the lies, shines light on the darkness, and offers hope to those who are ready to reject the counterfeit and embrace the truth. He backs up his arguments with startling statistics, real-life stories, and the rock-solid wisdom of the Church’s teachings on human sexuality.

Matt Fradd experienced a profound conversion at World Youth Day in Rome in 2000 and afterward committed himself to inviting others to know Jesus and the Church Christ founded. Matt speaks to about 50,000 people every year, and has been a guest on the BBC, EWTN, ABC, and Catholic Answers Live. He is the founder of the Porn Effect, a site dedicated to exposing the reality behind the fantasy of porn and offering help to those who seek sexual freedom.

Matt Fradd, Catholic author and speaker, presents “The Man Talk,” 2/6

Tuesday, February 6 at 7 p.m. in the Commonwealth Room, DUC
Male-only audience      Free and open to the public
In the first part of this powerful talk, Matt doesn’t explicitly “teach” the men anything. Rather, he invites the men to listen to powerful, moving, and oftentimes hilarious stories. Then, he poses questions to show the men, or perhaps even to convince them, that who they desire to be, and who God commands them to be, is in fact the same man. In the second part of his talk, Matthew lays out five rules that every man must break if he wants to fulfill his deepest desires and follow God’s commands.
