Actor Harry Reems became famous for a role in the porn film Deep Throat. Eventually the alcoholism and drug abuse ruined his health and then Reems became a Christian, according to Catholic Online which reports that Reems then "spent the next 20-plus years clean and sober, married to the same woman and attending church."

Reems is featured in a list of "10 Bizarre Christian Converts" by Christian Degree Programs which quotes Reems as saying, "If' I didn't put God in my life, I'd be dead now. I am not religious. I'm spiritual, 100 percent."

Wikipedia reports Reems as saying, "Being the low-bottom drunk that I was, I started going around to churches." According to Wikipedia, "Reems credited his conversion to Reverend Mark Heiss, a former pastor with Park City Community Church in Park City, Utah."

This week Reems, age 65, died in Salt Lake City.

Linda Lovelace, Reems' co-star in Deep Throat, also left the porn industry and crusaded against it. According to UPI, Lovelace became "a born-again Christian" more than 20 years before her death.

Jesus reached out to prostitutes. It shouldn't be a surprise that He also reaches out to porn stars with open arms.
