Ruth Bader Ginsburg Was the Sexual State in a Black Robe

“Ruth Bader Ginsburg was doubtless a fine person and dedicated to her ideas,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “I pray for God’s mercy on her soul, and solace to her family. But her ideas are dividing America.”

“For Justice Ginsburg, the Sexual State trumped everything else, including First Amendment freedom of religion, common sense and basic science.”


Calling the late Supreme Court Justice “the personification of the Sexual State in a black robe,” Morse explained: “She consistently solidified the most radical tenets of the Sexual Revolution using the power of the State. She used the highest law of the land to overturn democratic processes that tried to protect traditional sexual morals.”

In abortion cases where even most of the court’s liberal members favored restraint, she remained an unapologetic champion of abortion without exceptions. Justice Ginsburg allowed radicals to use the power of the State to enforce their views on LGBT issues, including “transgenderism.” In June, she was part of the majority that applied workplace anti-discrimination provisions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act to homosexuals and the gender-confused.

According to Morse, “This marked the first time the Supreme Court equated so-called sexual orientation with race and religion – a move which would have confounded the authors of the ’64 law. Although meant to cover employment, the decision will inevitably lead to removing remaining barriers to a distinction between women and men who call themselves women, their DNA notwithstanding.”

“The ruling essentially erased women,” Morse observed. “So it’s ironic that Justice Ginsburg is being hailed as a champion of women’s rights.”

“In addition, her dissents showed a marked hostility to religion. For instance, in Little Sisters of the Poor vs. Pennsylvania (2020), six justices upheld a Trump rule exempting the sisters from a provision of the Affordable Care Act, which would have forced them to provide contraceptives to employees through their health insurance plan. Ginsburg was one of only two justices who dissented.”

“In 2016, Donald Trump was elected to put the brakes on the Sexual State. He can make a significant step in that direction with a prompt replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”

Ruth Inst. President: The Global Ruling Class Likes Pedophilia

“There’s no other way to describe it: The global elite likes pedophilia,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “Of all of the demons released by the Sexual Revolution, the exploitation of children is the most depraved.”

Morse charged: “The evidence is overwhelming. The sexual abuse of children is a growing scandal in our society. At our Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution, I stated flatly: ‘The Global Ruling Class likes pedophilia.’ In the six weeks since I gave that talk, three more incidents point to the same conclusion.”

“First, the Democratic Party nominated Kamala Harris for Vice-President of the United States. In the seven years she was San Francisco’s District Attorney, she did not prosecute a single priest who was accused of sexual abuse. She couldn’t find a single priest, living or dead, whose behavior needed to be examined in the entire Archdiocese of San Francisco. Unbelievable.”

According to a recent book by Peter Schweizer, Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite, of the 50 largest metropolitan areas in the United States, San Francisco was the only one in which no priests were prosecuted.


Meanwhile, Netflix began promoting the film “Cuties,” to air September 9. Morse explained: “The movie is about a group of pre-teen girls doing highly eroticized dance routines to win a competition. From the way they’re dressed to their moves, ‘Cuties’ sexualizes girls who were playing with dolls a short time ago. Such depictions groom young women to be victims. What kind of mind even conceives of such a program?”

Thirdly, a committee of the California Assembly voted 6-2 to weaken the prohibition on statutory rape. The bill exempts from mandatory registration in the state’s sexual offender registry an adult who had sex with a minor, if the ages of the victim and the perpetrator are less than 10 years apart. “Do the sponsors of this legislation understand that it would exempt a 20-year-old who had sexual relations with a 12-year-old?” Morse asked.

She added, “Any time you reduce the penalties for statutory rape, you encourage it. That California is in the forefront of this dangerous movement is hardly surprising.”

“The same elite that claims to be horrified by pedophilia is blasé when confronted with the evil. Sex with children is one of the few remaining taboos. Radicals are determined to sweep it away so that nothing interferes with indulging their appetites, no matter how perverse.”

“The pagan cults of the ancient world sacrificed the lives of children to appease the bloodlust of the gods,” Morse noted. “Today we are sacrificing the innocence of children to appease the sexual appetites of adults.”

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.”
