Description

What happens when a pickup artist suddenly receives God’s grace after teaching a lifestyle of fornication for over a decade to a worldwide audience? American Pilgrim is a memoir that shares the first-year journey of a man upon his decision to repent from a life of evil to serve Jesus Christ. He travels across the United States to deliver his testimony in person through a series of lectures while chronicling the temptations that attempt to bring him back to Satan, the spiritual labors that deepen his faith as a new Christian, and the lamentable state of America on the cusp of great upheaval.

Roosh achieved notoriety and fame as a pickup artist starting with his first book Bang, eventually writing over ten books teaching fornication. Upon receiving the gift of faith in early 2019, he renounced and unpublished his old work. American Pilgrim is his first book as a practicing Christian.

    Excellent. Enlightening and thought provoking. Honest and entertaining. I enjoyed it very much.

    The book reminded me straight from the beginning, Roosh’s conversion and evolution as a character and personality. He renounces his past, but at the same time he accepts it and moves on, in the next chapter of his Life. That next chapter is essentially the book. As a Greek orthodox, I find the book very interesting, in the perspective of how Roosh is experiencing all the things that I’ve been taking for granted all of my life. It also paints very well the picture of Western civilization, and tries to give the reader his perspective about how a spiritual life devoted to Jesus Christ is the solution to the troubled souls of millions of people that lost their path. I recommend this book to everyone with the ability to think, also it’s good to support a creator and writer like Roosh, who essentially devoted his life to share his views and help thousands of people.

    As a male I can totally relate to the temptations of women, the thoughts that Roosh is going through.
    The book is very well written and Roosh narrates his thoughts without concealing anything about male thoughts.
    I really liked it.

    Part travelogue, part confessions, this is a voyage through the dark heart of a nation and civilization in apparently terminal spiritual and moral decline. As always though God leaves a remnant to mount a final defense and to rebuild. Roosh is part of this remnant and this book reads like an honest appraisal of the patients true condition.

    A great book, showing the journey of Roosh V and how everyone of us the struggle against the inside demons. I like the honesty and the transparence of Roosh. Keep up the great Work. God bless

    As a recent convert to to Eastern Orthodoxy who underwent a similar (though perhaps less dramatic) transformation to Roosh, I really appreciated this book. It really felt like a modern update to the “The Way of the Pilgrim,” certainly not as profound, but much more relatable. I bought this book to support Roosh (I am new to his content, fortunately, but appreciate his work since coming to Christ) and honestly didn’t think I’d get around to reading it for months or maybe years, but I happened to crack it open to take a look and ended up reading it straight through in just a couple days.

    I really appreciated his honesty in writing this book as he does not gloss over his difficulties in following Christ in our degenerate modern society. There are definitely a few parts where I cringed, thinking “I can’t believe he said/did that,” only to realize upon reflection that I have said or done quite similar things, if not worse. In this way, the book is quite useful as many of us struggle with the same passions of pride, lust, etc. and observing Roosh’s struggles may help us reflect on our own shortcomings. After reading a lot of writings from saints during my catechism, it is refreshing to read an honest account from someone who is much closer to my own level of spiritual development.

    I would highly recommend this book for any newcomers to Orthodoxy or Christianity in general, or those who just starting to take their journey toward Christ more seriously. Its such an easy, entertaining read that is also filled with plenty of insights on how to cope with the fallen world we find ourselves in. I look forward to following Roosh’s work as he progresses in his life in Christ.

    The book was very insightful, I’ve learnt so much from roosh over the years from his pua days to now, and watched him mature over the years.He’s been a great mentor, and It Would be great to meet him one day. I’m by no means religious but realise the damages i’ve done having been a perpetual fornicator for over 10 years and what it can do to your soul and that it certainly is a dead end. I look forward to reading roosh’s work for years to come.

    Excellent book, which came at a timely point in my life, when I was starting to admit to myself that I had had it with the liberal BS that this corrupt world was throwing at me. I recommend it for anyone struggling to find meaning in an apparently meaningless world.

  9. Milan Patel (verified owner)

    Congrats on the book. It was a powerful read for me as someone who has also only recently heard God’s call to return to Him after last 20 years of sin and deception. Insightful, illuminating, humourous and relatable. May God bless you on your continued pilgrimage.

    I know Roosh would like proper constructive criticism on his work, he is a true writer who wants to improve.
    But the truth is criticizing this work is much more difficult then it was to write it…
    This is a true and honest auto-biographival work, telling the truth of God’s ability to redeem and utilize all of us for his grand work.

    Roosh has a very relatable past for most men in the west these days, of falling for temptation, sin and pride – his writing style makes everything clear and understandable… I often felt as though I could relate to the emotional highs and lows along his journey.

    This was Roosh’s public confession, it often touches on his intimate and personal life while constantly reminding us of the bigger picture.

    One of the best reads I have taken the time for in year’s, I was only able to buy the digital copy at the time but I plan on coming back for a paperback in the near future.

    Thank you Roosh for your honesty, and perspective – having rolemodels like yourself for young Orthodox people (specifically men) is inspiring and a necessary branch of support in these dark times.

    The Community around this man speaks more on this than I ever could.

    God Bless.

    This book greatly exceeded my expectations. Roosh’s well-documented turn from womanizer to chaste believer is one we can all learn from in a world focused on chasing endless empty pleasures. I believe religion will be a big part in the coming renaissance of American freedom and values, and Roosh walks you through the current degeneracy of the world with humble and insightful thoughts on how we all can get back to what matters.

    The best part is that Roosh walks the walk, unpublishing his old works he no longer stands behind, and fully admitting that he wasted the majority of his life, something many of us can identify with. I finished the book in a few days and will definitely be rereading it regularly.

  12. [email protected] (verified owner)

    This book is so much more than just an account of the Roosh’s US road trip, only took me a few afternoons to read because his story is very relatable for many men in their 30s and up. Would definitely recommend!

    The author’s real journey is his transformation from a professional woman chaser to a devout Christian who has repented for his past worldly life. At the same time, American pilgrim is a chilling reminder that the world is quickly degenerating to a globalized mess of woke activism and mass hysteria, while traditional religion and family are in decline. There really is nowhere to run as even the conservative strongholds of yesterday seem to be headed in the same direction as the big liberal cities, be it in the US or elsewhere in the western world (I am from Europe and sadly, many “American” symptoms of the cultural decline are also starting to show on this side of the pond).

    The author’s message is clear – you can travel to any place in the world, but all will be in vain if you turn your back on God to pursue the cheap worldly pleasures. It is much wiser to get your priorities straight early on in life, before you have wasted a decade or more of your life pursuing material gratification. I am really grateful for all the wisdom Roosh is sharing with us, so we don’t have to learn all of his own life lessons the hard way. Will definitely reread this book because every time you do so, you learn something new.

    While the book narrates the typical tour of Roosh’s conferences, he intermingles a varied detail of diverse towns and cities along with his opinion of them and how their political and intellectual stances affect the local populace. I personally enjoyed the descriptions as well as his own opinion of his current surroundings. This book is for those that are interested in learning more about the current state of the nation as well as the newfound faith of the author and his desire to keep it.

    Great story. I lived a life very similar to how Roosh did and also had a radical conversion to Christ less than two years ago and I while I read his book I felt like I was reading the words of an older brother who knew what I was going through as well. Reading about how Roosh’s heart was transformed by the work of the Holy Spirit made me fall in love with God all over again and made me realize that even though living a life away from the world post-conversion can feel lonely in some ways, it’s actually when we become our truest selves. Thanks a lot Roosh!

    To be honest, this book was very shocking to me. Sadly, I have had a life of misadventures and pleasures, and the truth is that I am still paying for that detachment from God. It’s amazing that it’s still there for me. Every chapter I read from the book, I had to stop for a bit to take a breath; In many of those situations, I remembered my past and felt like every bad decision I made in life burned me. Today I am recovering little by little, I do not know if God forgives me, but in case I have the opportunity to start a family, I will not allow my children to go through the same thing that I went through. I hope this book enlivens faith in them as it did me.

    Wonderful books are those that touch your soul and invite you to wake up and understand that you must follow the right path; without a doubt this book is one of them. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

    great book! not complicated, straight forward with the occasional dry humour

    I will show the review gave to this book by a friend, Mihail Neamțu, to whom I sent the book in PDF format “Dear Emilian,
    The book brought tears into my heart. I have read just a few chapters and it blew me away with the power of living Christ.
    Be blessed and Thank You!
    Mihai”
    Mihail Neamțu is one the most public known theologians in Romania. Born in 1978, Mihail Neamțu received a PhD in theology from King„s College London with a thesis called “The Nicene Christ and Desert Eschatology”. He lived also in US. After the election of Donald Trump as president of the US he wrote and published a consistent book in Romania, “The Trump phenomenon and profound America”.

    Roosh’s Christian conversion gives him an atypical perspective on modern society. Whereas most people assume that society, and hence therefore also people – us, are all getting better and better in an ever-accelerating upward sweep of progress, Roosh does not. Nor did some past civilizations, as Quintus Curtius writes in the foreword to another or Roosh’s books, “Free Speech Isn’t Free”:

    “None of the prominent ancient peoples—Greeks, Romans, Chinese, or Indians—subscribed to “progress” as a desirable or inevitable goal of mankind. Instead, they were fixated on the concept of cycles. Human history, in the ancient Greek view for example, was an unending story of birth, rise, decay, and inevitable collapse; and there could be no real escape from this inexorable cycle. There was very little that was “new” in the world, except arrangement. Humans ignored this truth at their own peril.”

    Roosh travels through America, doing a little sightseeing (though he tends to see the same kinds of things wherever he goes) and giving talks, or perhaps giving one talk many times, trying to undo some of the damage he has done in encouraging men and women to live promiscuous lives and teaching men how to seduce women. It is Roosh’s penance, but with sincerity, not with any self-flagellation.

    Roosh has long admired hard work, and this book is evidence of his work ethic: he not only wrote this book, he also recorded the audio version and kept a vlog of his journey which can be viewed on this site. The vlogs and the book complement each other nicely as they overlap but do not simply repeat the same content.

    I liked reading Roosh’s responses to questions and criticisms he received from attendees at his talks. One in particular sticks in my memory: a materialist challenged him, “But you’re a man of science and logic. How can you just come to believe?” “Through the heart,” answered Roosh simply. Another time, he lectures a couple of young men who are going to university. It’s a long, impassioned plea which lays out the stark realities lying ahead of them after graduating, living in the city, meeting a woman (if they’re lucky) but she will also love city life, having children to provide for whom the husband and wife will both have to work leaving them little time with their own children to guide them in the right path.

    I also liked the fact that he wrote about what he observed, both inside and outside of himself, and also about how he felt about what he observed. In this sense, he sees with fresh eyes, unclouded by the baggage of intellectual knowledge. “The National Park Service did everything they could to remove God’s glory through their informational placards. One placard claimed that the Badlands was 500 million years old. They lied to us about the war Jeremiah [Johnson] fought in, and now they were going to tell me the story of what happened half-a-billion years ago?” He steadfastly refuses to read any of the informational signs in the various national parks he visits. “I had ignored all the informational placards around the park that offered theories on how these mountains and valleys had been made. The glory goes solely to God, not to “natural forces,” which are merely means to God’s ends. I didn’t want to hear how old the mountains were, or what purported glacier was here eons ago. God created this beauty, and He created it for us, and on this day He allowed me to witness it for a brief moment of human time. What more could be added?”

    Roosh writes well: the sentences flow. He also has humility and self-awareness. “Coming to God is not a problem of information or knowledge. The question I must ask myself is how to speak to people’s hearts instead of their minds. The best I can do is identify
    where a man is on his spiritual journey and give him one seed of nourishment that I think he needs. God will then decide whether that seed takes root or not.” “I had been a fool when I had thought I was wise.” “When I lived in Poland, I would rent a city bike and ride around a lake so slowly that joggers would pass me. I grudgingly accept that my constitution is that of a house cat. Give me peace, beauty, and nature, but only if it doesn’t elevate my heart rate.” “It was June, gay pride month. It seems to me that every month is gay pride month, but June even more so.” “There was too much beauty for me to handle, and I didn’t think I deserved to
    see it because of all the ugly things I had done.” “How would the lives of others be if they were never allowed to take selfies? How much does all this incessant documentation feed our pride? I’m cool or special because I have pretty eyes and I saw this and did that. Was this entire trip just a vain deception to keep my pride elevated, to be the focus of attention?” “The first place I attempted to visit in Asheville was a coffee shop that did not pose a danger to the community, because when I reached for the door handle, I
    noticed a gay pride sticker. I went to the homeless shelter instead, more commonly known as the library.”

    On the less-than-positive side, when I saw Roosh observing the gay pride parade in NY city and muttering into his camera about wishing an asteroid might come down and wipe out all this depravity, I thought, ‘Yes, but you’re looking for it!’ Wherever he goes, he counts the number of gay pride flags, the number of homeless tents, observes the manner and clothing of the women, and the number of tattoo parlours and shops selling occult books and paraphernalia. Some might question this as the unhealthy puritanical obsession which might hide a secret desire, but I think Roosh has figured out that these are all signs of degeneracy and of a lack of discrimination and good judgment among the residents: they really see nothing wrong with these things and do not see how they are interconnected. To Roosh, they clearly are, and he often points this out: “The purpose of gay pride is not only to pat gays on the
    back but to destroy female innocence, to bombard them with a lifestyle of sex and drugs, to render them sterile.” “Their [the liberals] ideas, activism, policies, and votes had helped to create this [homelessness problem]. Their weaponized use of political correctness, equality, and atheism destroyed anyone who tried to fix it.” As he puts it, “Satan has perfected all the games in the casino and will make sure you don’t walk away a winner. The only way to win is not to play his games at all.”

    I learned from this book. I teach, so I found this musing interesting: “I feed off the audience, so when their reaction is muted, I identify two or three men who seem the most interested and focus on them to the exclusion of others. If I catch someone not paying attention, or worse, sleeping, I never look in their direction again. When the speech was done, many of the men said how good it was, even more so than in New York, which taught me that I must always continue the speech in high spirits even if the feedback suggests otherwise.” “If you don’t try to build anything, you will never learn. You’ll always have to depend on other people to build it for you” (advice Roosh received from someone living a homestead lifestyle he felt attracted to.)

    Before reading this book, I was already aware of the great attraction this world has for me and how this attraction can become a huge DIStraction from what I am really here on this planet for, but Roosh’s travelogue and questions and comments on himself and what he sees around him in America re-inforced that awareness. Roosh is very aware of the danger of pride and of thinking that he (or anyone) can really do anything to improve ourselves or the world. Roosh once practiced the Japanese art of Aikido so he might have heard the following quote from modern Aikido’s founder, Morihei Ueshiba, which I think sums up what Roosh has learned about life: “We should leave everything in the hands of God.” Perhaps Roosh would also agree with the emphatic statement I once heard from a wise man: “You can have an idea about how to do this or that, but if you think you’ve got an idea of how you can save yourself, forget it!”

    I hope Roosh continues not only to deepen his relationship with God but also to share his insights into truth and the human condition, especially what he has learned about raising children.

    Roosh’s account of his conversion from womanizer and embittered fornicator to Christianity, after his beloved sister’s death which shook him at his foundations. Delivered in his characteristic workman’s prose─plain and straightforward, that leaves no taste on one’s literary palate. This work bears testimony to the powerful (and positive) changes Christianity can induce in a person, so much so as to make a complete 180 degree turn. By the end of his conversion Roosh might as well have been legally a different person, because his behavior pattern was unrecognizable.

    Where before he loved to fill the void in his heart with parties, alcohol, and fornication, now he fills his heart with God and consequently developed a hatred for vices. His newly acquired ascetic tendencies allow him to endure suffering and accept misfortune with equanimity, instead of seeking to avoid that pain or dull it with self-destructive behaviors.

    Where before he drew pleasure from ogling women as part of a licentious lifestyle, now his love for God allows him to draw pleasure from beholding God’s work, namely nature. Appreciation of the synthetic, pornographic, and superficial, is replaced by a fascination for the authentic and the aesthetic─a love for the Beautiful and the True. He now finds magic in watching birds and mountainscapes.

    Where before he regarded others in a shallow and facetious manner, now he feels a deep love and kindness towards his fellow man. His success at manipulating women into sleeping with him, the consistency of the input -> output pattern, lent him to see them as inferior, or as objects. Christianity gave him an understanding for the depth of the human soul as well as its infirmities, and consequently he developed patience and understanding in regarding fellow sinners like himself.

    Where before he would have easily compromised his principles for his physical wellbeing, now he developed the strong courage of a Christian. As a result of his belief in the afterlife, he would not sacrifice his life or comfort to accommodate evil. He knows that his soul belongs to God and only he can hurt it by the decisions he makes.

    I found Roosh’s descriptions of the simple, traditional life to be inspiring and you could feel the pain for missing out on the better life he could’ve given himself in the story of how a little girl made a drawing for him. It’s those moments that are life’s treasures for ordinary people. Roosh gives a window into the better lives some of us could lead and later contrasts that with the urban hellscapes of liberal cities. But never throughout did I find his prose compelling. If there was a word to describe it, it would be ‘deadpan’ or ‘monotone’. I could hardly feel any emotional charge one way or the other. Without emotional charge the book has little in ways of persuasion to cultivate on one hand, a love for Christ and all things beautiful, and on the other hand disgust for liberal values and the products thereof. Consequently, it is weak in this respect.

    His appreciation for nature was budding. If you live in the city, it may rub off on you or you may find it refreshing. But if you live in the countryside, his can seem weak in comparison. Fascinating, if nothing else, in the same way one observes a child’s development.

    If the book starts with 1 star for the effort of writing it, it gets another 2 because reading it increased my faith and virtue. That, it accomplished.

    I subtract one star because of his advocacy for civic nationalism which is anathema to Scripture and natural order. The following quote is a very good example of why you never let racial outsiders dictate your interests, no matter how good they may seem otherwise in whatever regard, because theirs will never align with your own:

    “Many parts of suburban Washington, DC also have a large Hispanic population, so I felt almost at home. If you use the faulty language of the left-right dichotomy, I am a “conservative.” I’m supposed to dislike the huge influx of Hispanics coming into the country since I didn’t vote to live in Mexico, but it’s hard to hate them. I’ve never been bothered by a Hispanic; they usually keep to themselves. First-generation immigrants are blue-collar workers, similar to my parents, and family-oriented. Some even possess a strong Catholic faith. Unlike the people in Laguna Beach, they don’t ache for fame and status. I know that wayward Hispanics are capable of gang activity and excessive drinking, but those problems have impacted me far less than the thuggery of [REDACTED] youths, the demented wrath of white female feminists, or the political censorship of [REDACTED] liberals. If I were to construct an enemies list, Hispanics would not be on it, but as a man who is frustrated at the direction America is going, who else can I direct my anger but those who are most visible?“

    Roosh is correct. He is not a conservative. He could not conserve America because he *is not* American. Would his anti-White views get governmentally implemented (they already are), American people would suffer demographic replacement and with it, the irreplaceable ethnic character which built the country his lineage immigrated into. America as he knows and loves it would cease to exist (it is already happening). He could never think of the American heritage as his own–to identify with it–because he is not *of* it. How can a man feel invested in something he does not own? He is not the Founding Fathers’ posterity.

    In fairness to Roosh, he not long ago published an article titled “I Am The Peasant Revolt” where he criticizes this exact phenomenon:

    “The plan of the regime was simple: culturally sterilize the white population, their greatest threat to power (as clearly evidenced by the recent Canadian truckers’ protest), and replace them with atomized non-European people who will obey any directive to come and reside in the United States to enjoy its first-world comforts. “

    He may have adjusted his politics since writing American Pilgrim but my review must address the contents of the book as they are. Anyway, this is the only iffy passage in the book and it stands out.

    It lacks the 5th star firstly because the prose is pauper and doesn’t enrich my vocabulary. Nor does it stimulate my intelligence with complex thought patterns. The best books─the 5 star books─excel in every measure, but here American Pilgrim falls short. It gives me less value per sentence as compared to, say, Aristotle’s Rhetoric, where sentences are structurally complex and rich in meaning, and the mere act of deciphering the text into meaning exercises my working memory. Secondly, Roosh could not explore deep theological matters or spiritual insights because he was newly converted. Beginners or those looking to explore Christianity will get more out of it but for intermediate or experienced Christians the most utility they will get is the repetition of the basics. Thirdly, there is the padding characteristic to him from other books consisting of thoughts, observations or repetitions that are superficial or conceptual dead ends. They do not lead anywhere or enhance the principal message. It could have been ~70 pages shorter without taking away anything. What makes the padding more boring is, again, the simplicity of the prose.

    If my review seems negative, let me emphasize that for everything else, the book is filled with wisdom, virtue and faith to learn from and it is worth your time to read. Roosh reiterates ancient Patristic wisdom found in writings of old Orthodox Fathers. If you’ve ever tried to read them but found language to be a barrier, his book may be a more accessible venue for the same ideas to reach you.

    To sum up:
    Positives:
    – Very accessible.
    – Promotes faith
    – Contains wisdom
    – Speaks truth
    – Orthodoxy
    Negatives:
    – Padded
    – Simple
    – Basic

    Favorite quotes:
    The man who was deepest in the red pill journey asked me whether I believed men should be “the best version of themselves.”
    “Who gets to judge when you have arrived at the best version of yourself?” I asked.
    “I do.”
    “But by what standard are you judging yourself? Who makes the criteria? At some point, you will need the judgments of other people to confirm you really are the best. I want hot women, so I am the best version of myself when hot women want to go to bed with me. I am not the judge of myself—the women are. I want to be rich, so I am the best version of myself when people decide to give me a lot of money for my labor, product, or service. They are my judge. So the best version of yourself will happen to be what pleases other people, but only for the short term, for what the mob likes today will change tomorrow. You will be going from trend to trend to stay
    on top of what the culture dictates is best.”
    “But don’t you think that you should work towards becoming
    better?”
    “I think you should work hardest in your relationship with God. Everything else is seeking approval from other people. You allow them to define what success is. They’re also applying that flawed standard to themselves, so in the end you have pigs in a pigpen showing off their mud to each other. For example, say you want to get attractive girls. You know that girls care about looks and charm. You go to the gym, upgrade your wardrobe, and learn some witty one-liners. You coat yourself with the mud to get a mud-soaked woman. You made it! You’re the best version of yourself! But you’re more likely the worst version of yourself, one that is purely material, totally disconnected from God, to please those who are far from God themselves.”
    “I didn’t think of it that way.”
    “It only took me 40 years to learn that. Today my only judge is God. I aim to only care about what He thinks of me. You see my hairstyle now. It’s unkempt and unattractive. My beard is not properly trimmed. When I look in the mirror, I know for certain that this is not the best I can look, but I proceed because I don’t want to subconsciously seek approval from fallen women.”
    Two men left and I gave the third a ride home since he lived near my lodging. He was looking for answers about what to do with his life. Like many, he was skeptical about my re-conversion to Christianity. He didn’t state that he was an atheist, but I was certain that was the case.
    “Now I totally respect you and your work,” he started, “and see
    you as possessing a sharp mind, but do you think your spiritual turn
    is a midlife crisis?”
    “I see this more as a midlife miracle than a crisis, an opportunity to withdraw from the world and seek my eternal salvation instead of playing meaningless games that lead to condemnation. In a genuine crisis, people often look for pleasure to soothe the pain. A woman finds yoga and that is her lifestyle. Or she becomes a vegan. A man buys an expensive sports car or pursues women half his age in the Third World. These things will be pleasing for a while until the crisis returns, but when you find God, there is nothing to achieve and nowhere to go. There is no pleasure to receive but divine pleasure. I believe I’ve reached the last stop on my earthly trip
    before I die.”
    He paused for some time, thinking of his next objection. “But you’re a man of science and logic. How can you just come to believe?”
    “Through the heart. It’s hard to come to God through the mind. If what you believe as ‘logic’ leads to evil acts then it can’t be logical at all—it’s the logic of Satan. You’re still looking at the
    material world to make you happy. You believe that if you get a new job, or a woman, things will be fine, but they won’t because you have separated those pursuits from God. You will try anyway, and I hope you ‘succeed’ as quickly as possible so that you can see the truth behind what I’m saying at a younger age, but from what I can perceive about your current frame of mind, there’s nothing I can say to convince you there is a God. There’s no argument I can
    give you, because your heart doesn’t want to believe. It isn’t ready for God, but I pray one day it will.”
    […]
    An atheist cannot be converted by an article. An article can barely help a man with his sex life, and that concerns matters of the world. Coming to God is not a problem of information or knowledge. The question I must ask myself is how to speak to people’s hearts instead of their minds. The best I can do is identify where a man is on his spiritual journey and give him one seed of nourishment that I think he needs. God will then decide whether that seed takes root or not.

    She even liked Donald Trump. What are the odds that I was able to meet a 22-year-old Polish girl who liked Donald Trump? It was like a needle in a haystack. She liked him and thought me liking him was something cute, but she was a little bit hesitant when I brought home a mammoth photo of Donald Trump and put it on my wall. I thought she would be more excited. She said, “Do you really want Donald Trump watching us make love?”
    “Yes! I do!”

    The last thing I learned in life is that this world is a gift from God, and when you are done here, you go back to Him. One other thing I learned from this experience is that there is nothing to be afraid of in this world. Imagine this man in the front row right now comes up to me with a gun and says, “Roosh, I’m going to shoot you!” I would tell him, “You cannot hurt me. You can hurt my body, but you cannot hurt my soul. Only I can hurt my soul with the decisions that I make.”
    Since humbling myself before God and starting to pray, everything has changed. My whole mental orientation has changed. My moral compass has changed. It turns out that in the inverted world we live in, I was living a life that was inverted too. By turning to God, He lifted me up and inverted back to where I should be.
