Chick-fil-A Chickens Out – Bows to LGBT Lobby

November 21, 2019

For Immediate Release

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., responded to the news that Chick-fil-A’s foundation will no longer give to Christian groups which oppose same-sex marriage. “Once the third largest restaurant of its kind stood for something fine and noble,” Morse said. “Now they’ve shown that their principles are negotiable, which means they have none.”


Morse observed, “The company’s charitable foundation just announced that they will no longer donate to the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes because of their refusal to worship at the altar of the Sexual Revolution.”

In a letter to the corporation, Steve Hicks, a member of The Ruth Institute’s board of directors, wrote, “Yesterday’s news that Chick-fil-A folded to political pressure from the LGBT elitists was so sad. Now you will go the way of the Boy Scouts and become irrelevant.”

Hicks continued: “You might have a few precious hours left to fire your executives and recover some trust with your base, but it may be too late. You just nuked your founder's core values and dream. How am I supposed to eat another sandwich without being sick to my stomach? It would violate my core values of principled leadership and American entrepreneurial independence.”

Morse added, “Sexual revolutionaries are relentless in crushing dissent. No deviation will be permitted, however principled. How long will it be before Chick-fil-A is delivering sandwiches to gay pride parades?”

Morse concluded: “We can only sadly quote the words of Winston Churchill to Neville Chamberlain after Munich. 'You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you will have war.' Chick-fil-A has just returned from its personal Munich singing the siren song of appeasement.”

The Ruth Institute is a global interfaith non-profit organization equipping Christians to defend the family and build a civilization of love.

Dr. Morse is the author of The Sexual State: How Elite Ideologies Are Destroying Lives.

Ruth Institute President Warns: Big Tech has become Big Brother

“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.”

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.
