I will be speaking at the Christian Veterans United event in Atlanta, Georgia that takes place on September 10-11, 2021. Though my speech takes place on September 11, I plan to attend both days of the event.

Organized by Dr. Michael Robillard, a Catholic veteran, the Faith & Freedom Men’s Conference is an explicitly Christian men’s event that will address the feminization of men and the increased secularization of the United States.

For far too long have the values of Faith, Family, and Flag been under assault in this country. The current narratives have succeeded time and again in dividing us and pitting us against one another along every conceivable line of difference and grievance, real or imagined. This conference therefore, aims to proactively respond to this ongoing assault by bringing together three cross-sections that constitute nothing less than the backbone of this nation: Christians, veterans, and men. We therefore aim not just to conserve these traditional values, of discipleship in Christ, duty to country, and traditional masculine virtue, but to begin the process of restoring these values both for the sake of America and its future.

My speech is titled Turning away from the modern world, where I will discuss how faith in Christ offers both a shield to modern evils and a path to healing. There are 15 scheduled speakers, including Jesse Lee Peterson, Tim Gordon, and Terrence Popp.

Tickets start at an affordable $14 for the live stream and $29 to appear in person. Click here to purchase your ticket.

I look forward to meeting both old and new faces. See you there!

I support Roosh in charging for his work.
Charity is offered, not demanded.

Roosh,
I fully support your change in lifestyle but charging people money to hear you speak about Christ and spiritual issues seems like a strange move.

Why the need to make money off of people's faith? And since this marks the end of my time here, I'll be frank, I question your motives.
Nobody is being forced to buy it. He is providing a service for which some people decide to provide currency in exchange for. Priests get paid. Speakers get paid. Authors get paid. Why did you pay to be a gold member? Were you forced? Roosh also has many livestreams up for free talking about the same or very similar topics. Further, he is traveling for this, and that costs money. Roosh has also lost a lot of money unpublishing many of his sinful books.

There is a place for people producing edifying works. They need to be paid if we want more edifying works.

Adios, Barron. You couldn't even come up with good criticism on your drama-seeking exit, and I'll consider it a badge of honor that you had problems with me.

But he's not the one charging the event organizers are. An event of this size/magnitude will allow him to reach more people.

It costs money to run an event, you have security, venue rental, catering, advertising etc.

Even priests and nuns get stipends, at least in the Catholic Church which I'm familiar with.

If it's only $29 and covers your travel costs, I'll just buy a ticket regardless if I can attend. And if by some miracle Canada transforms from North Korea into a free country again, I'll come down and check it out.

Have you not ever made changes in your life? Did you go to the event website and see what it's all about? Curious...why is it the end of your time here?

There are expenses that the organizers have to deal with: i.e., renting a space, website, etc. Nothing is free when hosting and running an event.

The Christian Veterans United event costs $29 per ticket, which seems reasonable and affordable. I might plan on attending the event to meet like-minded Christian fellows & RVFers.

Compare it to the insane ticket costs of attending the 21 Convention (October 21-24, 2021): $2,499 $999.

Now that's insane, but it does remind me of something. There are very few opportunities to have male only fellowship. Some people are willing to pay $999 for that. I'd pay $29 for it. You could pay hundreds a year for a cigar lounge membership, maybe join Knights of Columbus if you're Roman Catholic, but there aren't many options, and that needs to change.

There are other expenses that people don't realize they need to fork out additional costs on top of 21 Convention's $999 ticket:
- travel (i.e., booking a flight ticket or renting a car)
- meals, drinks, nightlife, sightseeing, etc.
- and so on...

The above mentioned total "hidden" costs is where it gets insane when adding on top of the ticket costs.

^Also country clubs and gym memberships.
$14 or 30 is a great price for an event like this, honestly expected it to be higher.

C'mon dude this is just looking for attention. The sun rises for nothing. Priests need money, saints needed money, everyone need basic finance to cover their basic expenses. That's life.

LOL, the man is complaining about a $14 ticket to see several speakers including Roosh and JLP. To think that Roosh should work for no pay is ridiculous. The man needs to live. This is a very low cost.

When I was in India, a Sadhu would come to the cafe I ate at, and the cafe owner would serve him a plate of dhal and rice and he didn’t expect any payment, the sadhu would thank him and leave. I interrupted a sadhu once when he was contemplating, he seemed frustrated, I had misread him, I thought we would smoke, as is often in India and I had bought him some water in good spirits, he became angry and raised his voice (like when Gandalf turns dark) and danced a little crazy, slightly disturbed I apologised and left leaving the water, not sure what he was saying. It bothered me for days.

Over a month had passed, I was a 100 or so miles away travelling through the Himalayan foothills, I would visit a local shop to pick up some smokes. As I approached the shop, a sadhu, in his orange cloak and long dreadlocks was talking to the shopkeeper, he turned and saw me, he froze and a wide smile spread across his face, he started singing in hindi, he come up to me and shook me by my shoulders, he turned to the shopkeeper and gave him a demand, then looked back at me with great joy and skipped down the road. Ok, I thought, What? I approached the shopkeeper, his son stood next to him translated ‘he (the sadhu) said we should give you whatever you want, so, What would you like?’. Amazed I looked around the shop and decided to have what I came for, a pack of smokes. The next few days I was high on the experience. Two days later I realised that sadhu was the holy man I’d interrupted over a month earlier, in a different state on that strange warm stormy night, obviously suffering some spiritual block outside the guesthouse by the rough flowing river.

I hope you understand the lesson I learnt. It’s all true.

“When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you. Stay there, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages." (Luke 10 6-7)

"For Scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,” and “The worker deserves his wages.” (Timothy 5 18)

Both of these passages have their origin in Deuteronomy 25: "Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain." In other words, if the ox is doing the work of its master, it should be permitted to feed on the scraps his labor produces.
