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.

Facebook May Be Liable for Trafficking, Court Says

Facebook May Be Liable for Trafficking, Court Says

On Friday, the Texas Supreme Court ruled that Facebook may be held liable for sex traffickers who use its platform to prey on minors.

The social media giant denies responsibility and claims it has no way to police such postings.


Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D, responded, “Facebook is showing its true colors. It has no trouble censoring conservatives and shutting down groups whose speech offends its politically-correct sensibilities. They could certainly shut down child exploitation if they wanted to. But Facebook is part of the Global Ruling Class and the Sexual Deep State.”

Morse noted that in May, Facebook permanently deplatformed Life Site News, supposedly for spreading “COVID-19 disinformation.” The real reason, Morse said, was that, “The site is a powerful voice against the abortion lobby and radical LGBTQ agenda that had to be silenced. This could be seen in the fact that a number of groups like the National Abortion Rights Action League and the Human Rights Campaign took credit for the move.

“You must appreciate the irony here,” Morse observed. “Facebook claims it can’t monitor sites that promote the sexual exploitation of children, but it can scour its platform for sites that promote what it calls ‘disinformation’ on COVID-19.”

Facebook isn’t the only tech giant with a double standard. In August 2020, Amazon stopped selling The Health Hazards of Homosexuality: What Medical and Psychological Research Reveals, claiming the book contains “content that is considered offensive,” despite having sold it for several years.

Morse asked, “Offensive to whom? How can medical science be offensive? Apparently when it runs contrary to Big Tech’s political agenda.” To counter this Tech tyranny, the Ruth Institute developed a Censorship and Propaganda Resource Center.

“Amazon says a book of medical and scientific research on the health hazards of homosexuality is ‘offensive,’ but offers books like The Joy of Gay Sex and Fist Me! A Guide to Anal Fisting.”

Morse concluded: “Apparently, the sexual exploitation of minors does not offend Facebook’s nebulous community standards.”

The Ruth Institute’s 2021 Survivors’ Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family,” July 16-17 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, will be the premiere event for leaders, activists and professionals fighting the Sexual Revolution.

Why We Must Reclaim the Professions for Life and Family

Why We Must Reclaim the Professions for Life and Family

“Doctors say they don’t know when life begins. Therapists’ associations try to prohibit talk therapy. The education establishment uses schools to promote Sexual Revolutionary propaganda,” said Ruth institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “This is why our Summit, Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family, is so essential.”

The Ruth Institute’s 4th Annual Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution will take place July 16-17 in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Registration for the Ambassadors Program, the Awards Dinner, and the all-day Summit, including a Virtual Conference Pass, can be found here.


Morse observed, “Whether it’s the American Medical Association, the American Bar Association, the National Education Association or the American Library Association, the story is always the same: leave no stone unturned in advancing the agenda of sexual radicals.”

For example:

  • In June, the American Medical Association 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.”
  • In March, the American Bar Association announced, “Transgender youth are under attack” when “trans females” aren’t allowed to compete in women’s sports, stating, “Exclusionary laws and policies not only impact the ability of transgender students to participate in sports, but also to experience the solidarity and inclusion that participation affords.”
  • In its 2016 “Legal Guidance on Transgender Students’ Rights,” the National Education Association said, “Denying equal access to gender-appropriate facilities (such as locker rooms and restrooms) for students who are transgender violates Title IX. It is essential for them to be able to live in accordance with their internal gender identity in all aspects of life, and restroom usage is a necessary part of that experience.”
  • The American Library Association maintains that Drag Queen Story Hour creates “a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive society… This includes a commitment to combating marginalization and under-representation within the communities served by libraries… by sponsoring a program or event featuring drag queens reading stories to children.”

Morse responded: “If these esteemed professional associations have their way, women athletes will be compelled to compete against biological males, women and girls will be forced to share restrooms, showers and changing rooms with males who say they’re women, parents will no longer be able to designate their child’s sex on birth certificates, and those who object to having men in drag read stories to their children will be pilloried as hateful and bigoted.

"Christian professionals are under enormous pressure to conform to ideas directly at odds with their faith and the evidence of their own eyes. We planned this Summit for people of faith who need ammunition and encouragement in this daily battle for sanity."

The Ruth Institute’s Summit will include sessions on Confronting the Corruption of the Professions, Reclaiming the Therapeutic Professions, and Legal Strategies for Reclaiming Education, as well as a Panel of Medical Professionals.

Actresses Traumatized by Nude Scenes are Both Victims and Perpetrators

Actresses Traumatized by Nude Scenes are Both Victims and Perpetrators

“A spate of high-profile Hollywood actresses have recently revealed that appearing nude on screen traumatized them. But the Sexual Revolution promised that such anxiety could be eliminated if we were just ‘sex-positive’ enough. We were told that everyone would be happier if we would just overturn our antiquated taboos. The heartfelt cry of these actresses shows that this is simply not true,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

These vocal actresses include Selma Hayek, Kate Winslet, Nicole Kidman, and Reese Witherspoon.

  • Of her nude love scene in “Desperado,” Selma Hayek said, “I started to sob and kept saying, ‘I don’t know that I can do it.’”
  • Kate Winslet disclosed: “I hate it… It’s a profoundly bizarre thing to do… really sort of unethical if you think about it.”
  • Nicole Kidman admitted: “I felt very exposed and vulnerable and deeply humiliated… I was just lying there sort of broken and crying.”
  • Of the sex scenes in the movie “Wild,” Reese Witherspoon confessed: “I started to panic... I was just terrified.”

Morse responded: “These aren’t vulnerable starlets but seasoned professionals. They wrongly thought their fame could insulate them from this sort of exploitation. Instead, the studios saw it as an opportunity to improve their profits by catering to base appetites.

“Often the nude scenes weren’t in the script but were sprung on the actresses while on set. Could they have refused? Of course. Could they have made these revelations sooner? I wish they had. But people are not at their most reasonable when they have been traumatized,” Morse said.

The Ruth Institute has been a consistent and outstanding voice for the protection of sexual abuse victims, with interviews with several therapists specializing in their care, and providing platforms, such as The Dr. J Show, and the Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution, for the victims themselves.

“The ideology of the Sexual Revolution insists that feeling shame over nudity is one of those outdated taboos we should all strive to get over. This view is very convenient for persuading victims to silence themselves,” Morse explained. “Harvey Weinstein, a convicted Hollywood predator, is the tip of the iceberg.

“Hollywood is a classic example of the corruption of the professions in a sex-saturated culture – partly for profit and in part because they’ve bought into the ideology of the Sexual Revolution, like so many other professions. At the Ruth Institute’s Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution, we’ll be talking about how education, medicine and law have been corrupted.”

The Ruth Institute’s 2021 Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family” will take place July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA.

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

Pro-Abortion/LGBTQ Groups Boast of Getting LifeSite News Banned by Facebook

Pro-Abortion/LGBTQ Groups Boast of Getting LifeSite News Banned by Facebook

Commenting on the news that Sexual Revolutionaries are bragging about getting LifeSiteNews banned by Facebook, Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “Now we know who decides on Facebook’s ‘community standards’: the National Abortion Rights Action League, GLAAD, the Human Rights Campaign and Media Matters. Big Tech has become a willing servant of the Sexual Revolution.”

On May 4th, LifeSite was permanently deplatfomed. Three days later, Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL, took credit for the move on Twitter, claiming LSN spread “COVID-19 disinformation.”


“Is FaceBook now the final arbiter on which scientific opinions are valid and which are not?” Morse asked. “They’re engineers, not scientists. And when it comes to the scientific community, there’s no consensus. The CDC, WHO and Dr. Anthony Fauci are frequently at odds. How can a difference of opinion justify censorship?

“But ‘COVID disinformation’ had nothing do with what happened to LifeSite,” Morse said. “The site is a powerful voice against the abortion lobby and radical LGBTQ agenda that had to be silenced.

“Since they can’t make the case for their cause, their first and last response is to scream ‘hate’ at the top of their lungs and censor their opponents whenever possible,” Morse charged. “The only surprise here is their audacity in bragging about their success in silencing the opposition Stalin-style.

“Big Tech operates as an adjunct of groups like GLAAD and NARAL,” Morse said. “In February, LifeSite was permanently banned from YouTube, even though its channel had more than 300,000 subscribers and averaged over 50,000 views on its main show.

“For Big Tech, it’s not about business or communications, but enforcing a rigid intellectual orthodoxy which will brook no dissent,” Mores explained. “Family advocates must unite to end these abuses while we still have a voice.”

The Ruth Institute’s Censorship and Propaganda Resource Center documents how social media are riding roughshod over freedom of speech. This will also be discussed at the Institute’s 2021 Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family” July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA.

Amazon is “Cancel Culture Central” says Ruth Inst.

March 16, 2021

For Immediate Release

For More Information: media@ruthinstitute.org 

Amazon is “Cancel Culture Central” says Ruth Inst.

Amazon’s latest ban is When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment by Ryan T. Anderson. “Amazon is becoming ‘Cancel Culture Central,’” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., President of the Ruth Institute. “They’re rapidly moving from selling books to the high-tech equivalent of burning books.”

A group of senators wrote to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos asking for an explanation, since Amazon still carries a number of Anderson’s books and sold When Harry Became Sally from its publication in 2018 until just a few weeks ago.


When questioned, Amazon refers to its ill-defined standards, including a refusal to sell books considered “hateful.” Morse wondered, “Why weren’t these titles ‘hateful’ for the years Amazon offered them, but suddenly are now?

“How does a scientific debate violate Amazon’s sacred standards,” Morse asked. “The arguments in all of these books are presented dispassionately and backed by scientific data and expert opinion.”

Morse notes that the timing is suspicious. “Amazon dropped Anderson’s book on transgenderism the same week that Congress took up the so-called Equality Act, adding ‘transgenders’ to groups protected by civil rights law.

“This is not Amazon’s first episode of censorship,” Morse observed. “In 2019, they banned all books by the late Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, Sr., M.D., the father of reparative therapy. More recently, Amazon abruptly canceled the MassResistance book, The Health Hazards of Homosexuality, a book it helped to publish.”

Amazon is just the tip of the iceberg. In February, Twitter cancelled the account of Focus on the Family’s Daily Citizen for describing Biden’s nominee for Assistant Secretary for Health at the Department of Health and Human Services, Dr. Rachel Levine, as “a transgender woman, that is, a man who believes he is a woman.”

Morse said: “That description is fully in accord with biology. Amazon and the rest of the high-tech establishment want to pretend that the debate on transgenderism is closed. In fact, they’re terrified of a discussion because they know full well that there’s nothing scientific about a man ‘identifying’ as a woman. Did he somehow change his DNA?”

Morse noted that Amazon’s standards allow it to continue selling Hitler’s Mein Kampf. Morse explained: “Other than a few neo-Nazi crackpots, no one is influenced by Mein Kampf. A reasonable person reading scientific arguments against transgenderism just might be persuaded. The High-Tech Establishment is so committed to the transgender ideology, they won’t take that risk.”

Cancel Culture Has Us All in the Crosshairs Ruth Inst. Says

Cancel Culture Has Us All in the Crosshairs Ruth Inst. Says

“This may be the greatest threat to freedom in America today,” Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said of censorship and the cancel culture.

Earlier this month, the pro-family group MassResistance discovered that its credit-card processing had been shut down. Supporters who tried to donate online were told their credit card was “declined,” with no further explanation offered. “For nine harrowing days, we worked to deal with this,” said MassResistance chairman Brian Camenker. Additionally, Amazon now refuses to sell the MassResistance book, The Health Hazards of Homosexuality, after offering it for several years.

Morse noted: “This has been going on for some time, but the trend has accelerated since the Capitol Hill riot last month. Conservatives have been de-platformed and lost speaking venues and book deals. Simon & Schuster violated its contract to publish Sen. Josh Hawley’s book, ironically titled The Tyranny of Big Tech.” However, the book will be published in May by Regnery.


“No one is immune,” Morse observed. “Focus on the Family, one of the largest pro-family groups in the nation, had its Twitter account locked. Their offense? A tweet pointing out that Dr. Rachel Levine, President Biden’s nominee for Asst. Secretary of Health, is a man who says he’s a woman. According to Twitter, acknowledging this biological fact is ‘hateful.’ That means reality is ‘hateful.’”

Morse continued: “Even President Trump has had his Twitter account locked for more than a month. The Tech Oligarchs aren’t afraid of the President of the United States. That tells you something about who really holds power in this country.”

Morse disclosed, “In 2017, the Ruth Institute temporarily lost our ability to process donations because of our opposition to the Sexual State. Vanco Payments said we were ‘flagged’ as a group with a product or service ‘that promotes hate, violence, harassment and/or abuse.’ If countering family breakdown and helping victims of the sexual revolution makes us ‘hateful,’ so be it.”

Morse called the censorship movement “nothing less than an attempt to enforce groupthink and avoid a debate on many of the most important issues confronting our society.

“It works this way: If you oppose same-sex marriage, you’re ‘hateful.’ If you oppose the destruction of women’s sports in the name of ‘equality,’ you’re ‘hateful.’ If you affirm that a man who says he’s a woman is still a man, you’re ‘hateful.’ And if you oppose administering cross-sex hormones to adolescents -- you’re just too hateful for words.’’

On Tuesday, March 2nd at 7:00pm EST, Morse will have a Facebook Live Chat with Brian Camenker and a representative of Focus on the Family to discuss censorship.

During the week of March 7-13, the Ruth Institute will launch its Fighting Censorship and Propaganda Resource Center.

Ruth Inst. President Addresses Catholic Law Guild and Legatus of Lincoln, NE

January 26, 2021

For Immediate Release

For More Information: info@ruthinstitute.org

Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., Founder and President of the Ruth Institute, addressed the Catholic Lawyers Guild of the Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska, and the Lincoln chapter of Legatus, a national association of Catholic business leaders, in person last week.

In her remarks to the Lawyers Guild, Morse charged: "The Sexual Revolution is a lawless totalitarian movement. Those of us in the pro-life and pro-family movements have been staring into the abyss of sin for a long time." (Watch the video of her speech, “The Sexual Revolution: The Church was right all along, and we can prove it!” here.)


Morse cited the example of David Daleiden, the undercover journalist who caught Planned Parenthood officials illegally negotiating the sale of body parts from aborted babies. Rather than prosecuting Planned Parenthood for felonies, the Sexual State allowed Planned Parenthood to sue Daleiden for civil damages.

In her talk, Morse referred to the traditional understanding of law, as enunciated by St. Thomas Aquinas. "Law is an ordinance of reason, promulgated by the proper authority, to promote the common good." She cited no-fault divorce as a lawless exercise of state power. "Treating the innocent and the guilty identically is the opposite of justice. Dissolving a marriage at the request of one party, against the express wishes of the other, does not promote the common good."

The Catholic Lawyers Guild helps members integrate their faith in their professional life, and provides a forum for addressing ethical and spiritual questions related to the legal profession in a practical way.

Among those present at Morse's talk were the Most Reverend James Conley, Bishop of Lincoln, and the Hon. Mike Foley, Lieutenant Governor of Nebraska.

During the trip, Morse also addressed the Lincoln chapter of Legatus, which is part of an international organization of Catholic business leaders and executives, who have committed to study, live, and spread the Catholic faith.

Morse is a popular speaker at conservative and pro-family functions, and has addressed the Family Research Council, The Acton Institute, and Alliance Defending Freedom, among other national organizations. She has also spoken around the world including in Uganda, Australia, Spain, and Rome.

Global Ruling Class Supports Sexual Revolution at Cost of Individuals’ Health and Well-being

November 3, 2020

For Immediate Release

For more information, contact Don Feder: dfeder@rcn.com

“Whatever the outcome of Tuesday’s election, COVID policy is likely to change,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “We should not forget the lessons we’ve learned about the Global Ruling Class and their priorities. Since the pandemic was declared in March, we have learned that there really is a Global technocratic ruling class and that they fully support the Sexual Revolution.”

Here are a few examples of their priorities:


  • Churches are closed but abortion clinics remain open.
  • People postpone medical care to avoid overloading hospitals, but, after a very brief pause, transgender medical procedures continue.
  • Hugging our family members is considered unsafe but having sex with strangers is safe.
  • Millions of businesses are threatened with economic ruin– one in six restaurants went out of business-- but the pornography industry is thriving.
  • The Global Ruling Class uses the internet to manipulate and intimidate dissent from its COVID edicts, but does not make even a token effort to limit internet pornography.
  • Millions are suffering from depression, anxiety, and addiction relapses. The Global Ruling Class has done next to nothing to alleviate or even acknowledge this vast human cost.
  • Contact tracing is considered vital to combat spread of the virus, but casual sex with strangers is okay.

Regarding the last, Morse observed: “Dr. Anthony Fauci, the president’s COVID expert, favors contact tracing for those infected with the virus, but has no problem with sex among those who’ve hooked up through sites like Tinder or Grindr. In an April interview, the immunologist said that if someone chooses to be intimate with a casual acquaintance ‘that’s your choice’ regarding the risk.”

Morse added: “The unlimited abortion and contraception rights are based on a ‘right to privacy’ which the US Supreme Court discovered emanating from the penumbra of the First Amendment.All of a sudden, the technocratic elites have no privacy concerns whatsoever about testing or contact tracing for the Coronavirus.”

“The bottom line here,” said Morse, “is that the Global Ruling Class didn’t let COVID interfere in any way with the Sexual Revolution, which it embraces enthusiastically. Throughout the COVID crisis, virtually every aspect of life has been turned upside down, but not one premise of the Sexual Revolution has been challenged. The Global Ruling Class has tipped its hand: they support the Sexual Revolution, even when it risks people's health and well-being.”

Ruth Inst. Applauds Texas Grand Jury Indictment of Netflix

October 29, 2020

For Immediate Release

For more information: media@ruthinstitute.org

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said she was, “greatly encouraged that Netflix has been indicted by a grand jury in Tyler, Texas, for showing the movie ‘Cuties.’ I’m glad something is finally being done to oppose the sexual exploitation of children, as exemplified by this French film.”

According to a New York Post article, the Texas grand jury charged that Netflix did “knowingly promote visual material which depicts the lewd exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 years of age at the time.”


Morse explained in an August 26 press release: “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.”

Morse also noted from a Fox Business article, “Netflix is paying the price for promoting this degeneracy. Since it began showing ‘Cuties’ last month, it’s seen a spike in subscribers choosing not to renew the service, compared to the same period last year.”

There have also been calls in Congress for the Department of Justice to launch a criminal investigation. Rep. Vern Buchanan (R, Fla.) said it was time to “stop catering to predators and start paying more attention to protecting children.”

Morse concluded, “We need to get serious about combating the plague of child pornography. Young lives are at stake.”
