The Sexual State: How Elite Ideologies Are Destroying Lives and Why the Church Was Right All Along
“The Sexual Revolution has never been a grassroots movement,” writes Jennifer Roback Morse in her latest book. Rather, it was manufactured by liberal elites
“justifying their preferred lifestyles, imposing their new morality” by harnessing “the coercive power of the State.” As a result, millions have suffered
the effects of this revolution. In her compelling indictment, Morse identifies the Contraceptive Ideology, the Divorce Ideology, and the Gender Ideology
as the three fronts that built the Sexual State — and the three fronts the Church and social conservatives must focus our own defense and attacks
upon if we are ever to restore love, marriage, and family to their rightful dignity.
