Ruth Institute President Says Teaching LGBT History is Indoctrination, Not Education

For more information, contact: media@ruthinstitute.org.

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., called the growing trend in public schools of teaching LGBT history “the institutionalization of the Sexual Revolution.”

“For years, activists have sought to use schools to advance their sexualized worldview,” Morse explained. “They are succeeding beyond their wildest dreams. California, New Jersey, Colorado and now Illinois require exposing children to this ‘instruction.’ ”

Morse noted an assault on parental rights. “Since most sex education instruction has an opt-out provision, activists have branched out, inserting LGBT instruction into history, foreign language and even art classes.”

Morse urged parents to be vigilant to stop this indoctrination from spreading. “The mandates for these classes are usually based on a vote of the state legislature. Often, legislators hear from only one side – the proponents of these radical measures.”

“You might say eternal vigilance is the price of morality,” Morse concluded.

The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization equipping Christians to defend the family and build a civilization of love. On April 26-27, the Institute held a Summit for Survivors of Sexual Revolution.

New York City’s First Lady Chooses Drag Queen Over Saint: Ruth Institute President Appalled

For more information, contact: media@ruthinstitute.org.

Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., Founder and President of the Ruth Institute, said replacing a noted humanitarian and America’s first canonized saint with a politically connected drag queen “makes a mockery of the program’s stated purpose. The city claimed it wanted to erect monuments honoring the women who built New York City. Instead, NY’s First Lady is honoring men who say they are women.”

New York City is planning to erect statues of women to address a perceived gender-imbalance among the city’s monuments. Political correctness has come to dominate the process.

The project is known as She Built NYC and is expected to cost $5 million. Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini (popularly known as Mother Cabrini) “fit the stated description of the project perfectly,” Morse observed.

Working in the 1880s, Mother Cabrini founded an upstate orphanage and a school for girls in the Washington Heights section of New York. Altogether, she started 67 institutions dedicated to helping the poor. When the city solicited nominations for the She Built NY project, Mother Cabrini was nominated more frequently than any other person.

The City’s First Lady, Chirlane McCray, ignored the public’s stated wishes and selected drag queens and LGBTQ activists, who adopted the names Sylvia Rivera and Marsha Johnson, in place of Mother Cabrini.

Dr. Morse explained: “Calling yourself ‘transgendered’ doesn’t make you a woman if you have the DNA of a man. Adopting a woman’s name and dressing like a woman won’t work either. Gender is a matter of biology, not belief.”

Morse continued: “Sexual Revolutionaries have found a new way to advance their agenda – publicly-funded monuments honoring individuals who represent gender confusion and whose chief achievement is political activism promoting their cause.”

Ruth Institute President Warns: Big Tech has become Big Brother

For more information, contact: media@ruthinstitute.org.

“It’s been a month since the White House conference on social media censorship and nothing has changed,” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., founder and president of the Ruth Institute.

Twitter recently banned a video posted by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “Twitter said the video’s ‘violent language’ violated its standards,” Dr. Morse stated. “But the threats were being directed against McConnell by activists demonstrating at his home. If social media giants like Twitter can do this to the leader of the United States Senate, imagine what they can do to ordinary pro-family groups,” Morse observed.

She cited the recent example of Google’s refusal to run ads for the movie Unplanned and Amazon’s decision to ban books about conversion therapy.“The Sexual Revolutionaries can’t answer our arguments, so they suppress, suppress, suppress,” Morse charged. “Their Big Tech allies have become Big Brother, protecting us from thoughts that disturb their regime.”

Commenting on Google’s treatment of Unplanned, Dr. Morse noted:

“This film is based on a true story, about the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic who quit after watching a sonogram of an abortion for the first time. This woman had been kept in the dark about the nature of abortion. Now Google tried to keep moviegoers in the dark about one of the first general-release films to expose Planned Parenthood.”

Dr. Morse also noted Amazon’s decision to ban books about Conversion Therapy, which offers hope to adults experiencing unwanted same-sex attraction. These include the works of the late Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, considered by many as the father of Conversion Therapy. Amazon caved to pressure from gay activists.

“For heaven’s sake, what are they afraid of?” Morse asked. “For years, we have been told no one can be harmed by a book. Unless, of course, it is a book that contains ideas they don’t like. Amazon banned books containing the testimony of people who were once gay, and who now live a different life. These people defy the ‘born that way’ article of sexual revolutionary faith. So, naturally Big Tech Brother wants to ban them.”

Morse concluded: “We invite those interested in factual analysis and the unvarnished truth to visit the Ruth Institute’s website, www.ruthinstitute.org.”

Ruth Inst. Challenges Mainstream Media: Connect the Dots between Mass Murder and Family Breakdown

For more information, contact: media@ruthinstitute.org.

In the wake of the tragic mass murders in El Paso, TX, and Dayton, OH, Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., wonders why the media show so little interest in the impact of family breakdown on these crimes.

Morse notes: “The absence of a father – through divorce, abandonment or failure to form a family – leaves an enormous hole in the lives of teenaged boys and young men. Studies going back 30 years have shown a connection between family breakdown and violence. But the Sexual Revolution marches on oblivious to this common-sense truth.”

Dr. Morse continued, “In my 2001 book, Love and Economics: It Takes a Family to Raise A Village, I cited a study from 1988 showing family breakdown as a serious risk factor for criminal and violent behavior. Studies since then confirm this connection. We’ve known from the beginning of the Sexual Revolution that kids need both parents in a loving and stable relationship. The claims that ‘kids are resilient,’ and ‘alternative family forms are harmless,’ are simply unfounded.”

Dr. Morse continued: “It is not just academic research. The late rapper Tupac Shakur, who himself met a violent end, explained it simply but eloquently: ‘I know for a fact that had I had a father, I’d have some discipline. I’d have more confidence. Your mother can’t calm you down the way a man can. You need a man to teach you how to be a man.’”

The Ruth Institute calls on media outlets to tell the whole story about family breakdown and crime. Stop glossing over this connection!

The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization equipping Christians to defend the family and build a civilization of love. On April 26-27, the Institute held a Summit for Survivors of Sexual Revolution, which included presentations on the long-term impact of family breakdown on children throughout their lives.
