Survivors Summit Covers Abuse, Addictions and Attitudes that Threaten our Civilization

June 23, 2020

For Immediate Release

For More Information: media@ruthinstitute.org 

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s disastrous Bostock decision, the Ruth Institute’s Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution takes on extreme urgency. The Summit, to be held July 17-18, in Lake Charles, LA, will analyze the many ways the Sexual Revolution needs the power of the State to do its destructive work.

Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., stated, “The Bostock ruling redefines “female” and “male” for purposes of law. The Obergefell decision redefined marriage. The Federalist Society vetted Gorsuch, appointed by Pres. Trump, who wrote the majority opinion. This terrible ruling shows that the conservative legal establishment has no idea how to address sexual and social issues. The Sexual Revolution attacks both the individual and the family. At our Summit, we’ll take a hard look at some of the most destructive pathologies the Global Ruling Class has inflicted on ordinary people.”

Expert presentations will include:


  • Surviving Childhood Sexual Abuse – The future of health and the family depends on ending it. No one will do this but people of faith! Presented by Dr. Morse and Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D.
  • Surviving Pornography, as a nation, as a family, as an individual: Pornography as a Public Health Crisis, Melea Stephens (of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation) and Protecting Young Eyes: Tools for Parents and Other Educators, presented by Chris McKenna (of Covenant Eyes).
  • Surviving the LGBT Sub-Culture: Medical Issues – presented by Dr. Michelle Cretella, MD, of the American College of Pediatricians.
  • Reporting from the front lines of the Transgender Movement – stories from parents of gender-confused children, “desisters” (individuals who lived as the opposite sex and stopped), resistance within the medical profession and surprising new allies, presented by journalist Brandon Showalter.

The program will also include testimony from Survivors of the Sexual Revolution, as well as activists’ panels, question and answer sessions and general discussions.

Among the participants on the Surviving the LGBT subculture panel are journalist Doug Mainwaring and Pulse Nightclub shooting survivor, Luis Ruiz. Both left the LGBT subculture.

Morse observed: “After the Bostock ruling, social conservatives of all faiths have realized beyond any shadow of a doubt: we are on our own. Participants at our Summit will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of redefining the direction of the social conservative movement. The encounter with experts and their analysis, the first-hand testimony of Survivors, and the experience of effective activists, will inspire participants. They will come away with new friends as well as practical tips on how to get involved and make a difference.”

Awards Dinner Honors Heroes at Ruth Inst. Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution

June 12, 2020

For Immediate Release

For more information, contact media@ruthinstitute.org.  

As part of its Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution (July 17-18 in Lake Charles, LA) the Ruth Institute will host its Third Annual Awards Dinner July 17. The honorees are:

Public Witness Award: Sue Ellen Browder, author of How I helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women’s Movement. As a freelance writer for Cosmopolitan, Browder became a propagandist for sexual liberation by promoting unmarried sex, contraception and abortion as the single woman’s path to personal fulfillment. Browder will also deliver the keynote address.


Activism Award: Cathy Ruse, graduate of Georgetown University Law School and past spokeswoman on human life issues for the U.S. Catholic Bishops Conference. Ruse is being honored for exposing the Fairfax Co., Virginia Board of Education for using a Planned Parenthood-endorsed Comprehensive Sex Education program.

Professional Integrity Award: Dr. Paul Church, Cornell-trained urologist, who worked for 28 years at Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. In 2013, he was removed from practice at this and other Boston-area hospitals for urging them not to participate in LGBT events, due to overwhelming evidence that same-sex practices increase the risk of disease and mental health problems. He compared this to the medical community promoting smoking.

Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., observed: “Our three honorees have been on the front lines of the fight to expose and oppose the more pernicious aspects of the Sexual Revolution. They are all heroes, and we are proud of their participation in our Survivors Summit.”

The Summit will also include “It Takes a Family to Raise a Village,” an Ambassador Training Conference (by application only) on July 17, and the full-day Summit program on July 18.

Ruth Inst. Third Annual Awards Dinner and Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution – July 17-18, 2020

June 2, 2020

For Immediate Release

For more information, contact media@ruthinstitute.org.

The Ruth Institute will hold its Third Annual Awards Dinner and Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution on July 18, in Lake Charles, LA. Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “This Dinner and Summit will take those who’ve suffered from the Sexual Revolution from victimhood to healing, empowerment and activism.”

The event will be held live, in accordance with the gradual reopening guidelines for the state of Louisiana. Morse said, “We are not cowering in fear, wondering whether we will have a future. We will comply with all public health guidelines in place at the time. But we want the public to know that we at the Ruth Institute are filled with hope for the future. We will act as if we have a future.”


The Awards Dinner Friday evening kicks off the festivities. The Institute will give awards for activism and public witness, including a keynote address on How the Sexual Revolution Hijacked the Women’s Movement. The Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution on Saturday includes these sessions:

Surviving Childhood Sexual Abuse – Statistical analysis and strategies for healing, including testimony from survivors of childhood sexual abuse, including clergy sexual abuse.

Surviving Pornography Addiction – Understanding pornography as a public health crisis, and offering strategies for protecting children.

Surviving the LGBT Sub-Culture – Including health and psychological risks commonly associated with same-sex sexual activity and gender dysphoria.

Morse added: “Last year’s Survivors Summit was an overwhelming success. This year, we’ll be hearing expert input and testimony from survivors on a new range of issues associated with the Sexual Revolution.”

“The Ruth Institute is the only organization fighting for the family and exposing the interconnectedness of such diverse issues as divorce, pornography, sexual abuse, gender dystopia, the LGBT movement and the sub-cultures it’s spawned.”

Morse concluded, “Our Third Annual Awards Dinner and Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution will be about healing, hope and unity.”

Ruth Institute Calls for Moratorium on “Sex-Change” Operations and Clarification on “Conversion Therapy”

April 2, 2020

For Immediate Release

For more information, contact media@ruthinstitute.org. 

Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., founder and president of the Ruth Institute, called on the nation’s governors to halt “gender reassignment surgery” during the coronavirus crisis.

Morse explained: “The government has called for a moratorium on non-essential procedures in order to conserve medical resources. Sex-change operations clearly fall within this category. No one will be harmed by a delay here. And it will give those considering such surgeries more time to contemplate what could be a life-altering event that they’ll later regret.”


The Ruth Institute took a similar position on abortion clinics during the coronavirus crisis, calling for a halt in elective abortions as non-essential medical procedures.

Trans activists have warned that some gender-confused will commit suicide if their operation is delayed. Morse called this argument a red herring. “A study shows that those who have undergone a ‘sex-change’ operation are nearly 20 times more likely to commit suicide than the general population.” (See below for link.)

Morse said a moratorium would help us come to terms with the nature of gender-reassignment surgery. “After the operation, patients will have the same sex they had before. These procedures change physical appearance, not DNA. Those who were born male or female will remain so till the end of their days, regardless of what they do to their bodies.”

“The answer to gender confusion is compassionate counseling, not facilitating a fraud,” Morse said. She also called on governors to lift bans on such therapy, where they exist. “Bans on conversion therapy are often so broad that therapists fear taking on gender-confused clients. Lifting such bans would enable those seeking help to receive it without therapists fearing legal consequences.”

Ruth Institute Questions Why Radicals Think Pro-Family Equals Anti-LGBTQ

February 28, 2020

For immediate release

For more information, contact media@ruthinstitute.org.

Right Wing Watch – a project of People for the American Way that routinely misrepresents family advocates – responded to the Ruth Institute’s Feb. 21 presentation of its Make the Family Great Again petition at the State Dept. Commission on Unalienable Rights.

Right Wing Watch claims both the Ruth Institute petition and the Commission itself were created to help advance what it calls an “anti-equality agenda,” a term frequently used to smear and dismiss arguments for the right to life and defense of the family.

Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., Founder and President of the Ruth Institute, said, “We hold these truths to be self-evident: Every person comes into the world as a helpless baby. Every person has a mother and a father. Infancy is the one truly universal human experience. Is respecting this fact what Right Wing Watch regards as ‘anti-equality?’”


Morse continued: “Our Petition doesn’t mention LGBTQ, homosexuality or ‘same-sex marriage.’ We focus on the rights of children and parents.” Morse’s statement to the Commission reiterated the rights enumerated in the petition:

  • The right of every child to a relationship with his or her natural mother and father, except for an unavoidable tragedy
  • The right of every person without exception, to know the identity of his or her biological parents
  • The right to life from conception to natural death
  • The right of families to educate their own children in their faith tradition and values, without being undermined by the state

“Which of these rights does People for the American Way think are ‘anti-equality?’” Morse asked. “Does Right Wing Watch think children have no right to a relationship with, or to know the identity of, their parents? Maybe Right Wing Watch and its parent organization, People for the American Way, do not believe parents have the right to raise their children in accordance with their values. If so, let them tell us: who does have the right to direct the education of children?”

The Ruth Institute’s petition gained more than 8,000 signatures at its partner site for this project, LifePetitions.com. Signers included leaders and activists from 15 countries, among them former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Alveda King (niece of Dr. Martin King, Jr.), Nigerian Bishop Emmanuel Badejo, and Fr. Boniface Ssenteza (National Scouting Chaplain of Uganda).

People for the American Way and Right Wing Watch also accused the Commission, headed by Harvard Law Professor and former Ambassador to the Holy See, Mary Ann Glendon, of promoting a “right-wing interpretation of religious liberty.”

Morse countered: “The Constitution prohibits government interference with the free exercise of religion. That is neither right-wing nor left-wing. The sexual revolutionaries simply want to avoid an honest debate on these important topics.”

Countering Half-truths on Human Sexuality: A Clear Response to Fr. Martin’s Fuzzy Thinking

November 26, 2019

For Immediate Release

For more information, contact media@ruthinstitute.org. 

On November 23, Hudson Byblow, a former same-sex attracted man with transgender inclinations, now a faithful Catholic living chastely, spoke at the Saint Pius X Church Center in Rochester, New York, to an enthusiastic audience.

This event, co-sponsored by The Ruth Institute and The Station of the Cross Catholic Radio Network, was in response to a recent interfaith Rochester event featuring Fr. James Martin, a priest known to advocate for homosexuality. The Ruth Institute worked with a group of local Catholics, at their request, to bring Byblow to Rochester.


Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “Catholics must respond to people like Fr. James Martin. Evangelicals must respond to people like Pastor Josh Harris. The best response to fuzzy thinking is clear, unambiguous positive thinking,especially on the ancient Christian teachings about marriage, family and human sexuality.”

“It was a great blessing to welcome Hudson Byblow to our diocese to share his story and proclaim the fullness of truth on the virtue of chastity,” said Jim Havens, General Manager of The Station of the Cross Catholic Radio Network.

“In our time, when grave lies about human sexuality have largely captured the culture, and have even gained a strong foothold within the human element of the Church, faithful lay-led events such as this are no longer merely beneficial, they have become necessary," Havens said.

Local pro-life leader John White said, “In his talk, ‘Something more beautiful,’ not only did we hear about the mercy of Jesus Christ, we also felt it through the story of Hudson Byblow. Once feeling inadequate and not one of the boys, he is now a leader of men. He leads them to Christ.”

Byblow is a teacher and public speaker. He shares his journey from feeling like he didn’t belong and that he must be “gay” (and then transgender) to joyfully living a life of chastity in the freedom of Christ.

Correction: Ruth Inst. Responds to Fr. James Martin’s Fuzzy Teaching with Clear Teaching

In the press release issued November 11, 2019, we incorrectly attributed a quotation to Bishop Mark Hegemoen, current bishop of Saskatoon. The statement was actually made by the previous bishop of Saskatoon, Archbishop Donald Bolen, who is currently archbishop of Regina, Canada. The Ruth Institute regrets the error. The statement below is correct. Please discard any previous versions of this press release.

November 11, 2019 corrected on November 13, 2019

For Immediate Release

For more information, contact media@ruthinstitute.org. 

In announcing an upcoming speech by Hudson Byblow, a faithful Catholic who once embraced a gay identity, Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “The best response to fuzzy thinking is clear, unambiguous positive thinking,especially on the Catholic doctrine on sexuality.”

“We are concerned about the confusion spread by people such as Fr. James Martin, who spoke at an Interfaith gathering in Rochester, New York, on November 7,” Morse explained. “A group of loyal Catholics in Rochester asked for the Ruth Institute’s support.”

In collaboration with the Station of the Cross Catholic Radio Network, the Ruth Institute is sponsoring a talk by Hudson Byblow November 23, 7 pm, at St. Pius X Church Parish Center (3010 Chili Avenue, Rochester). The title of his talk is “Something More Beautiful – From LGBTQ to Jesus Christ."


Rochester Bishop Salvatore Matanohas given permission for the event to take place on Catholic property and be advertised in Catholic media. Byblow’s own bishop, The Most Reverend Mark A. Hagemoen of the Canadian Province of Saskatoon, says “Mr. Byblow’s approach is informed by his own journey and ongoing conversion, and by his intellectual, human and spiritual formation. I am confident that Hudson is faithful in presenting the fullness of the Church’s teaching in these areas and that his presentations will be of great benefit to his audiences.”

Archbishop Donald Bolen of Regina, Canada, formerly bishop of Saskatoon, said, “Mr. Byblow’s frank yet tempered approach to some of the most difficult topics facing our youth today is an important part of dialogue and witness so needed by our church on matters including chastity, homosexuality, same-sex marriage, and contemporary gender issues.”

Morse said, “We are honored to work with The Station of the Cross Catholic Radio Network and others to let the full truth and beauty of Catholic teaching shine forth.” She also noted, “The teaching of the universal call to chastity has been a part of the Christian tradition from Apostolic times, stretching back to Judaism. These teachings are often regarded as strictly Catholic, but historically, all branches of Christianity and Judaism taught the same things. Mr. Byblow’s talk is open to anyone who wishes to learn more about the beauty of living a life of self-command.”

Byblow is a teacher and Catholic speaker. He shares his journey from being bullied and abused and thinking he must be gay, to being a free man, living in the freedom of Christ as a Catholic, joyfully striving to live a life of chastity.

Ruth Institute Summit Focuses on Victims of the Sexual Revolution

For more information contact: Rachel Golden info@ruthinstitute.org

“Divorce and the LGBT subculture have changed the face of America in ways that cry out for thoughtful examination,” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., founder and president of The Ruth Institute. “Our Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution will do just that, with a unique blend of scholarship and personal stories.” The Summit will take place April 26-27, in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Testimony on the toxic effects of the LGBT sub-culture will include Moira Greyland, daughter of iconic science fiction writer Marion Zimmer Bradley (author of the Mists of Avalon series). In her autobiography The Last Closet: The Dark Side of Avalon, Greyland exposes how her mother molested her for years. Later, Greyland blew the whistle on her father, who was arrested for abusing an 11-year-old boy. “It’s only been in the last few years that I’ve been able to confront what my parents did to me,” said Greyland, who will receive The Ruth Institute’s “Public Witness of the Year Award,” at a banquet on April 26.

Luis Ruiz is a survivor of the 2016 mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando. Speaking of the Pulse night club attack, Ruiz observed that 49 people were killed, “I was almost 50.” The shock and horror of the tragedy, as well as the knowledge that he was HIV positive, helped Ruiz to turn his life around.

Greyland and Ruiz will share the spotlight with critics and survivors of divorce, including Leila Miller, author of Primal Loss: The Now Adult Children of Divorce Speak and Dr. Stephen Baskerville, professor of government at Patrick Henry College, speaking on “How Does the State Benefit from Your Divorce?”

Other speakers include adult children of divorce and divorce reform advocates, as well as sociologist Fr. D. Paul Sullins, author of The Ruth Institute’s report on clergy sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church, and Robert A.J. Gagnon, Professor of New Testament Theology at Houston Baptist University who will receive the Ruth Institute’s “Scholar of the Year Award” at the Awards Dinner Friday evening.

“No one knows more about the history of the sexual revolution than Jennifer Roback Morse, and no organization has shown more compassion toward its many victims than The Ruth Institute,” says Family Research Council Senior Fellow for Policy Studies Peter Sprigg. “We welcome this constructive response to the destructive ideologies that have wrought such havoc.”

“The Sexual Revolution is often praised for how it changed America,” said Morse. “But what are those changes? Broken families and increased misery and loneliness. The all-star panels at The Ruth Institute’s Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution are just the first step in exposing the truth about this destructive ideology.”
