WATCH: Former fashion model with indulgent past wants others with same-sex attraction to know joy of faith, chastity

TIGARD — Twenty-five years ago, Paul Darrow would march in New York’s gay pride parade. He’d pause with peers outside St. Patrick Cathedral to shout obscenities, hoping to interrupt Mass. Catholicism was the enemy.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (CNS) — The culture wars of today have nothing on those from Renaissance times.

In Florence, Italy, in 1497 — after people had been repeatedly warned that some instruments, books, sculptures, paintings and clothes could lead them away from their faith — thousands of these items were thrown into a huge pile in the center of the city and burned in the famous Bonfire of the Vanities.

Z: The Beginning of Everything
NEW YORK (CNS) — Streaming now on Amazon Prime, "Z: The Beginning of Everything" upends the conventional understanding of one of the 20th century's most famous marriages.
