Gasp! How could I have forgotten to Promo the Argument of the Month Club?!!??!!


October 13th:Real Men know Freedom is not Free!

A real story about the true sacrifice and struggle of one man, Ken Porwoll, to maintain his faith and hope in the face of unspeakable evil, the “Japanese Bataan Death March of WWII!”

There has never been a greater time than now for heros. Heros that can inspire us to fight in the face of great evil and terrible odds. They encourage us to keep on fighting and get back up if we fall. They help us to recognize the truth about manhood, that it requires selfless sacrifice and great virtue.

AOTM feels we have found such a hero, Ken Porwoll. Mr. Porwoll being a survivor of the Baton Death March will tell his story at the next AOTM on October 13th. He is an inspirational speaker that has given this presentation numerous times and has made a DVD about the topic. Senator John McCain, whom I’m sure most of you know, is the host of the program.

Fr. Echert has heard him speak and said his talk is moving and very inspiration. Mr. Porwell will deal with many points of interest but one of the main points of his account is the struggle he has with his faith in the midst of such evil.

Please join us for a great evening.

Sounds like a very inspirational talk. No arguing though? Well, I suppose Ray can always challenge Fr. Echert to an arm wrestling contest!
