Hope for a porn free life is message of former Catholic Answers speaker
Atlanta (Oct. 30, 2013) – As a keynote speaker for Catholic Answers, Matt Fradd often spoke of how pornography is hurting families and the church. Now, that passion is his full-time effort as a speaker for Covenant Eyes Internet Accountability and Filtering.
“Our mission is to help people understand the dangers of pornography and teach church leaders and families how to fight against this cultural onslaught,” said Ron DeHaas, president of Covenant Eyes. “Matt has been a champion in this battle. As a former porn addict, he has a personal understanding of how much pain it can cause, and he has a great inner drive to warn others and share his knowledge. We are thrilled that we can help him make his passion his full-time mission.”
A dynamic communicator, Matt speaks to nearly 100,000 teens and adults every year. He has appeared on TV and radio shows in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Australia and elsewhere.
His new book, Delivered, has just been published by Catholic Answers. Within its pages, Matt shares his story and the stories of men and women who have risen from the devastating impact pornography had on their lives and relationships.
“Men are being emasculated, women degraded, marriages destroyed, and souls lost because of pornography,” Matt said. “A man who is hooked on porn has been spiritually vasectomized. He is incapable of passing on the life of faith to his family. Vocations to marriage, priesthood, and religious life are not happening when men and women have been taken out by pornography.”
With his characteristic wit and Australian accent, Matt has a knack for turning the serious topic of pornography into thought provoking and even entertaining discussions. Matt weaves powerful and often hilarious stories and poses questions that allow his audience to look deeper into their minds, their lives, and their souls.
“[Matt] proclaims Jesus’ message of hope and healing, and he offers concrete, practical advice on ways to break free from pornography’s strongholds,” Archbishop Terrence Prendergast said. “I believe Matthew is reclaiming the truth, goodness, and beauty of human sexuality, and I support his work in the Church.”
Covenant Eyes provides Internet Accountability and Filtering software for computers and mobile devices and serves families in more than 100 countries. To help educate and restore families, Covenant Eyes provides educational e-books, small group workshops, and other resources.
