Sodom and Gomorrah Sex Tips from Colorado Dept. of Health

Commenting on a guide to “Sexual health during the pandemic” from the Colorado Department of Public Health, Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “It sounds a lot like the guidelines issued by New York City last March. I suppose they had to follow someone’s lead. Sodom and Gomorrah are out of business.”

The health departments in both states recommend masturbation as the best way to avoid spreading the virus. Both suggest avoiding sex “with anyone outside your household.” Also, if you do have sex with multiple partners, “have as few partners as possible.”

“The Ruth Institute offers our own health tip for the people of Colorado,” Morse said. “Have sex with one and only one partner: your spouse. That is a sure-fire way to avoid the spread of disease, including sexually transmitted diseases.”

Morse continued, “Last March, I stated that it sounded like the NYC Dept of Public Health was run by and for sex addicts. Now, Colorado sounds the same.”

Each state recommends prophylactics and dental dams and advises washing “sex toys” with soap and warm water “to avoid transmission and infection.” Colorado further admonishes “disinfect the surfaces where you have sex.” Like the kitchen table?

Morse observed: “These guidelines assume the average person has sex with multiple partners, meets partners online, and has ‘sex toys.’ Such assumptions are a way to try to normalize the aberrant lifestyles favored by the Sexual State.

“How well these assumptions work is demonstrated by the 20 million new STD infections a year in this country. Many are the result of the casual and multiple liaisons that Colorado and New York City take for granted.

“This is typical of the Sexual Revolution, which holds that any type of sexual activity is as valid as any other. If you tried to talk morality to these public health departments, which are evidently staffed by true believers, you’d get a blank stare.” Morse explained.

“Someone who prattles about washing sex toys to counter a pandemic isn’t serious. In fact, quite the opposite. How well the principles of the sexual revolution work can be seen in rising levels of divorce, out-of-wedlock births, pornography addiction, and sexually transmitted disease.

“If insanity were a disease, both the Colorado and New York Departments of Public Health would be in critical condition,” Morse said.

Ruth Inst: Thanksgiving Regulations Mark Too Many as Rulers, Not Leaders

November 25, 2020

“Thanksgiving, more than any other American holiday, is a family holiday,” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., President of the Ruth Institute, in a special Thanksgiving message. 

“No matter their religious heritage, on this day, Americans unite in giving thanks for their many blessings. Families long scattered gather together to share food and make memories. In years past, the day before Thanksgiving was always the busiest travel day of the year.”

But all of this has changed, thanks to officious government. Morse charged: “This Thanksgiving, some governors are going wild with COVID restrictions. Some state governments are telling us how many people we can have at the Thanksgiving table.”

Moreover, Morse observed: “Some of the virus-containment rules establish flagrant double-standards. The Mayor of San Francisco tried to limit church attendance in the massive cathedral there to one person at a time.

“Still, sanity will eventually prevail,” Morse promised. “Yes, there are risks involved in travel and gatherings, but many people who contract the virus have modest symptoms or no symptoms at all. The vast majority of people recover fully. We now know that contracting COVID is not a death sentence.

“How and where to celebrate Thanksgiving should be the decision of individuals and families, not government. The so-called experts who are advising the governments, are single-minded in their focus on numbers of cases. They cannot see the collateral damage.”

Morse said this includes:

  • The elderly who waste away from loneliness.
  • The addicts who can’t go to their 12-step meetings, relapse, and lose their sobriety.
  • The people who become depressed and even suicidal.
  • The small business owners who have a lifetime of effort wiped out.

Morse offered a message of hope in this holiday season: “The family is bigger than government. In fact, the family existed long before there were governments. The Bible tells us that humanity started with the family.

“Every totalitarian movement of the past 100 years has despised and feared the family. That’s because the family can stand on its own. Every little household created by a man and a woman can sustain itself, provide for itself, and protect itself. Fathers are natural authority figures. Mothers are natural objects of loyalty and affection. Totalitarian governments hate both.

“In my book, The Sexual State, I point out that a free society like ours does not need or want a ‘ruling class.’ We need and want a leadership class. It has become sadly clear that too many of the people in positions of power, influence, and authority are rulers, not leaders.”

Morse closed her powerful statement with a plea to educated professionals to do their part to fight corruption in their own spheres of influence.
