Ruth Inst. Survivors Summit Ruled “A Transcendent Fundamental Experience”

The Ruth Institute’s 2021 Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family,” came in the midst of advances by the “transgender” ideology in law, education, and government.

While the Summit covered a broad range of topics, including the medical costs of the Sexual Revolution, the worldwide decline of fertility, abortion and the black community, and resisting the corruption of education, there was a special emphasis on the role the professions play in all of these.

Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., observed: "The Sexual Revolutionaries cannot carry out their remake of society without the cooperation of numerous well-educated, highly-placed professionals. This year's Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution equipped those professionals with the tools they need to say, 'Enough! No more!' The on-line participants, the in-person participants, and those who will watch the Summit videos, will be ready to fight back."


Of the Summit, writer, teacher and victim-advocate Christa Stamper said, “Being at the Ruth Institute’s Survivors Summit felt like coming home! I left invigorated, encouraged, inspired, and better informed. I’m ready to further my work to strengthen families and advocate for those harmed by the Sexual Revolution.”

Denise Shick, author of When Hope Seems Lost: Understanding Gender Confusion, remarked, “The Survivors Summit provided a wealth of information. The speakers were compassionate and knowledgeable on the sensitive topics presented.”

Rev. Walter Hoye, Founder of Issues4Life and California Civil Rights Foundation said, “The Ruth Institute’s Summit was a transcendent, fundamental experience in accord with the all-powerful reality of truth.”

The Summit gave special attention to the transgender juggernaut, providing professionals and parents with the tools to resist. For instance, Erin Brewer, who describes herself as having been a “trans-child,” said, “So-called ‘transition’ is an experimental and harmful medical intervention. The best treatment for children suffering from gender dysphoria is puberty. Puberty is natural, no-cost, and shown to be effective in the vast majority of cases.”

Attorney Mary McAlister, Senior Litigation Counsel with Child and Parental Rights Campaign, helped parents fight back by providing participants with their School Resource Guide. She stated: “Parents and school administrators have gone from being partners in educating children, to arch enemies, as sexual revolutionaries have transformed classrooms into indoctrination centers aimed at replacing the Judeo-Christian worldview of the parents with the anti-Christian, sexually exploitative worldview of the elites.”

Morse affirmed: “This is our most important Summit to date, as we helped train those fighting the toxic gender ideology. The personal relationships forged at the Summit will unite professionals opposed to the influence of the Sexual Revolution in such organizations as the American Medical Association, American Bar Association and National Education Association.”

The Ruth Institute’s Survivors’ Summit took place in Lake Charles, LA, July 16-17. Raw footage of the event can be seen with purchase of a Virtual Conference Pass.

The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization, leading an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love.

Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “This will be our most important Summit to date. If you want to help reclaim the professions and gain valuable insights into the issues family activists deal with most often, this will be the place to be Friday and Saturday.”


Morse, who will give the opening address on “Confronting the Corruption of the Professions,” noted: “Once-respected professions have become megaphones for the Sexual Revolution. When it comes to issues like transgenderism, their positions are based on ideology, not science.”

The Summit will include a Friday, application-only, Ambassador’s Training Program for members of the pro-life and pro-family movements, followed by an Awards Banquet with guest speaker Rev. Walter Hoye, Founder and President of both the Issues4Life Foundation and the California Civil Rights Foundation.

“I’m very proud of the team we have assembled for this year’s Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution,” Morse said. “The Sexual Revolutionaries count on people being isolated in their fields, but the same problems are common across many professions, including law, medicine, therapy, and education.”

Reclaiming Therapeutic Professions a Key Topic at Ruth Inst. Summit

Reclaiming Therapeutic Professions a Key Topic at Ruth Inst. Summit

How the therapeutic professions have become a handmaiden for the Sexual Revolution will highlight the Ruth Institute 2021 Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family,” July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA.

“Therapy has become politicized. Therapists have turned from science to dogma,” said Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “Is it really out of the question for a person who once identified as ‘gay’ or ‘lesbian’ to choose a different identity or way of life?"

The session on “Reclaiming the Therapeutic Professions” will feature these experts:


Dr. Laura Haynes retired from psychological clinical practice after more than 40 years. She now speaks and writes about same-sex attraction and discordant gender-sex identity change. She served on the board of the International Federation for Therapeutic and Counseling Choice and chaired a committee of the National Task Force for Therapy Equality. Dr. Haynes worked on research for the Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity and was a consultant for the American College of Pediatricians. She also served as president the Christian Association for Psychological Studies, Western Region. She is a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and the American Psychological Association.

Susan Constantine, MPsy, has more than 17 years’ experience analyzing jurors, witnesses, and suspects. She has consulted as the human behavior expert for some of the world’s most noteworthy trials, including George Floyd, Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby, and Jerry Sandusky. She has appeared in over 1,000 national and international television programs such as CNN, Fox, Dateline 20/20, Dr. Phil, Dr. Drew, Discovery Channel, Good Morning America, and The Today Show. She has published in the Washington Post, Capitol Hill, New York Times, and the New York Post. She has trained FBI and Homeland Security agents, The Department of Defense Inspector General, Federal Court Judicial Law Judges and attorneys in hundreds of private law firms on how to read facial expressions, emotions, and body language, and how to detect deception and emotional/cognitive processing. Her masterclass, “How to Spot a Liar in 7 Seconds or Less,” releases this month.

Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D., is a Senior Research Associate of the Ruth Institute. He recently retired as a Professor of Sociology at the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. Dr. Sullins is a leader in the field of research on same-sex parenting and its implications for child development. He has written four books and over 100 journal articles, research reports, and essays on issues of family, faith, and culture. His reports on clerical sexual abuse from the Pennsylvania Grand Jury data, John Jay data, LA Times, and other sources have garnered international acclaim.

“Is it impossible to believe a person who experiences same-sex attraction might not want to act on those feelings?” Morse asked. “Yet, to the guardians of the therapeutic professions, this is the new taboo. If the Sexual Revolutionaries have their way, therapists will be legally forbidden to assist clients who want to change. At the Summit, we will discuss the growing body of evidence that people can change their patterns of attractions and behaviors.”

Attendance at the “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family” Summit can be in person or on-line with a Virtual Conference Pass.

Ruth Inst. Summit to Reclaim Medical Professions

Ruth Inst. Summit to Reclaim Medical Professions

Of all of the professions captured by the Sexual Revolution, the medical profession can do the most harm. At the Ruth Institute’s Survivors’ Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family,” July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA,the Medical Professionals Panel is of vital importance.

Ruth Inst. President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., explained, “Untold damage is being done by groups like the American Medical Association in advancing the agenda of the Sexual Revolution.”


In June, the AMA said sex should be removed from birth certificates: “Designating sex on birth certificates as male or female… perpetuates the view that sex designation is permanent and fails to recognize the medical spectrum of gender identity.” It also “risks stifling an individual’s self-expression and self-identification and contributes to marginalization and minoritization.”

Morse responded: “The AMA is following non-science by endorsing the notion that sex is fluid and can change based on an individual’s whims. In reality, the sex you were born with is the sex you’ll have for the rest of your life, regardless of what you choose to do to your body.”

The panel at the Survivors Summit consists of three distinguished physicians:

  • Dr. Michael S. Parker, MD, KM, is the System Medical Director for OB/GYN at Hospitalists Mount Carmel in Columbus, Ohio. He is also President of the Catholic Medical Association. He has spoken nationally and internationally on a variety of topics, including family planning, infertility, and the side effects of contraception.
  • Dr. Quentin Van Meter, MD, FCP, President of the American College of Pediatricians, has a long history of advocating for children in the American Academy of Pediatrics. He is continually frustrated by the political bent of the National AAP, which is why he switched his affiliation to the ACPeds. Now he continues to work for children and families without being hampered by political correctness.

“These physicians are eminently well-qualified to discuss the dangers of politically correct advocacy by medical associations on issues such as transgenderism,” Morse said. “It’s high time for caring professionals grounded in the Hippocratic tradition to reclaim organizations such as the AMA and AAP.”

Attendance at the “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family” Summit can be in person or on-line with a Virtual Conference Pass. Early Bird registration pricing ends today, July 6.
