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.

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.


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

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.

What Impact Will Jenner’s Candidacy Have, Ruth Inst. Asks

What Impact Will Jenner’s Candidacy Have, Ruth Inst. Asks

Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., says the gubernatorial candidacy of Bruce (who calls himself Caitlyn) Jenner is a step toward normalizing transgenderism--the delusion that someone can change their sex by “identifying” with the opposite sex.

“The establishment has declared the debate over,” Morse said. “That’s far from the case. Transgenderism is a lie that’s exerting an increasingly corrupting influence on our society. Reputations are being ruined and voices silenced by a refusal to acquiesce to this latest offensive of the Sexual Revolution.

“Children are being used as lab rats and students indoctrinated. In Biden’s military, even the troops are brainwashed. Anyone who objects to this denial of reality is branded a bigot and persecuted relentlessly,” Morse charged.


Jenner was recently interviewed on a FOX Nation show hosted by Tomi Lahren. Lahren praised what she called Jenner’s conservative positions and said a celebrity had a better chance to replace current California Governor Gavin Newsom, who faces a recall election.

Morse said, "Bruce Jenner, the 1976 Men's Olympic Decathlon winner, has stated that he does not think it is fair for women and girls to compete in athletic competitions with men who say they are women. I'm glad to hear that. That is decent of him. But, there are many other horrors hiding behind Jenner's skirts: the medicalization of children, the promotion of Gender Ideology in schools, and parents losing their rights and ability to protect their children from ideological predators. We shall be waiting for Jenner's statements on these issues.

"In no case should the Republican Party or Fox News be giving this man a platform. There is nothing 'conservative' about undermining the basic understanding of the male-female biological structure of the human race."

The Ruth Institute’s Survivors’ Summit, Reclaiming the Professions from the Sexual Revolution, July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA, will include presentations on the medical and psychological aspects of transgenderism, and how the professions are being corrupted by a pernicious ideology masquerading as a civil rights movement.

Reclaim the Health and Education of Youth at the Ruth Inst. Summit

The Ruth Institute’s Fourth Annual Survivors’ Summit theme is “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family.” The Summit, July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA, will provide training to counter the corruption of professions involved with the health and education of youth.

Ruth Institute president Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., explained: “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.” Morse will give the opening address on “Confronting the Corruption of the Professions.”

The day-long conference will include:


Reclaiming the Therapeutic Professions with Fr. Paul Sullins on “Correcting the Data,” and Laura Haynes of the International Federation for Therapeutic and Counseling Choice.

Resisting the Corruption of Education by Sharon Slater of Family Watch International, followed by a panel on Legal Strategies for Reclaiming Education.

The Summit will also include a day-long, application-only Ambassador’s Training Program for members of the pro-life and pro-family movements, and 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 own fields, but the problems are common across many professions. Doctors, therapists, educators and attorneys who are distraught over the direction their professions are headed, should plan to be in Lake Charles, Louisiana, July 16-17. You will see that you are not alone in your beliefs.”

Ruth Inst. Calls Out Kellogg’s for GLAAD Support

Ruth Inst. Calls Out Kellogg’s for GLAAD Support

“Kellogg’s isn’t endorsing ‘pride,’ but a radical agenda that targets children and families,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

The breakfast food company is working with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) to promote its new purple-boxed “Together with Pride” cereal, which will hit supermarket shelves in June, just in time for pride month.

“Not only are they pushing the LGBTQ agenda,” said Morse, “they’re directly subsidizing it.” For every $4 box sold of the rainbow-colored cereal, GLAAD get $3.

 


 

“Supposedly, GLAAD exists to counter defamation. In reality, it lobbies relentlessly for its agenda. Its Commentator Accountability Project targets journalists, guests and pundits who disseminate unpopular, albeit accurate, information about subjects GLAAD has declared off-limits for discussion,” Morse explained.

“For example, if a commentator observes that you can’t change your sex through surgery or drugs, that the sex you were born with will be the sex you die with – which is scientifically sound – GLAAD will call you ‘anti-trans.’ If someone on a talk show observes that children need both a mother and a father, they’ll be labeled ‘hateful.’”

Morse charged: “It’s not just Kellogg’s. An array of corporate giants – including Delta Airlines, Wells Fargo, Netflix, Google and Target contribute to GLAAD’s coffers.

As if direct subsidies weren’t enough, the side of each box of “Together with Pride” urges kids to choose their own pronouns, with options like he/him, she/her, and they/them--the “non-binary” option. There are even blank spaces for children to make up their own. What fun!


“These companies are virtue-signaling to the cultural elite and everyone who buys in to its agenda,” Morse said. “They’re saying ‘We’re nice guys. We love everyone. Buy our product.’

“But to support the LGBTQ agenda is not to love children, families or churches – all of which are ground zero in the culture war,” Morse declared. “Apologies to Tony the Tiger, but grrrreat! it’s not.”

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

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

Ruth Inst. Summit Stresses Reclaiming Professions from the S*xual Revolution

The theme of the Ruth Institute’s Fourth Annual Summit (July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA) is Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family.

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jenifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., explained: “In recent years, the professions most intimately involved with the health and education of youth have been corrupted by the Sexual Revolution. Doctors follow the myth that people can be born in the wrong body and are willing to surgically remove healthy body parts. Schools are indoctrinating children in the anti-science notion that individuals aren’t the sex they are born with but the one they choose.

“Professionals who dare to speak out are often ostracized, stigmatized and punished,” Morse added.


Summit speakers and panelists include physicians, therapists and teachers, as well as researchers and activists. “These professionals have devoted their lives to education and medicine, and now lament how the Sexual Revolution has come to dominate their professions,” Morse said.

Sessions will include: “Resisting the Corruption of Education,” “Legal Strategies for Reclaiming Education,” “Organizing Therapists,” and “Surviving the Sexual Revolution.”

Morse remarked, “Parents, activists, and professionals will receive the tools they need to reclaim these professions and prevent the mistreatment and miseducation of generations of youth.”

The first day of the Summit will be devoted to the Ruth Institute’s Ambassadors Training Program for leaders and activists. An awards banquet will follow.

A full list of speakers and a complete schedule is forthcoming.

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

Getting Your Child Out of the Gender Cult--The Book Amazon Couldn’t Kill

Getting Your Child Out of the Gender Cult--The Book Amazon Couldn’t Kill

Last week, Amazon blocked both the digital and print versions of Desist, Detrans, & Detox: Getting Your Child Out of the Gender Cult, but then relisted the Kindle version within 24 hours, possibly due to pushback from its initial decision.

Author Maria Keffler is the co-founder of Partners for Ethical Care, whose mission states: No child is born in the wrong body.

Ruth Institute president Dr. Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “This book is an invaluable tool for saving children from the clutches of the transgender movement. For too long, the trans movement has recruited vulnerable and confused adolescents, convincing them that ‘this is the way you are, so get used to it,’ and talking them into life-altering, possibly irreversible, surgery and dangerous hormone therapy.


Desist, Detrans, & Detox shows there is another way. It uses communication and relationship-building skills to help children escape the gender trap once and for all,” Morse said. “The billion-dollar industry that sells mutilation and medication to those suffering from gender confusion hating and fearing a book like this is understandable. That’s why the Ruth Institute is pleased to recommend it to parents and other caregivers looking for compassionate answers.”

The Ruth Institute is at the forefront of the fight to expose and oppose the transgender movement. More information can be found at the Transgender Resource Center, including the pamphlet, “Your Pain is Real.”

CNN Marches to Beat of Transgender Drummer

CNN Marches to Beat of Transgender Drummer

“CNN parrots the most absurd positions of the transgender movement,” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., president of the Ruth Institute. “We should start calling it the PCNN, Politically Correct News Network. And they can’t even keep their own PC terminology straight.”

In a March 30 broadcast on South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem’s executive order on transgender males in women’s sports, the politically correct network editorialized: “The order also references ‘biological sex,’ a disputed term that refers to the sex as listed on students’ original birth certificates.” In the same broadcast, the network claimed, “It’s not possible to know a person’s identity at birth, and there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth.”

Following substantial backlash, the Politically Correct News Network updated the story to “provide additional explanation as to the distinctions between gender and sex.” Their story now states, “It's not possible to know a person's gender identity at birth, and for some people, the sex listed on their original birth certificate is a misleading way of describing the body they have.”


Morse countered, “The Gender Theorists have inflicted this new terminology on all of us. The least they can do is to apply it consistently.”

Morse explained, “The term ‘sex’ refers to the body. The Sexual Revolutionaries invented the distinction between ‘sex’ and ‘gender’ to undermine the stability of male roles and females roles. ‘Gender’ is the term they use to describe the complex of social roles, personal preferences, feelings and identity. The Revolutionaries maintain that sex roles are socially constructed and can be reconstructed. This distinction allowed them to pursue their agenda of eliminating everything based on male-female differences, without having to maintain that the body is completely irrelevant. They’re saying: ‘All we want to do is provide more flexibility in gender roles. We accept that male and female bodies are different.’

“But now the mask is slipping,” Morse said. “They can’t keep their story straight. There absolutely is a criterion for ‘assigning sex at birth’: DNA, which is almost always immediately obvious from secondary sex characteristics. Of course, we can’t know a person’s ‘identity’ at birth, if that term includes everything they are ever going to think or feel. But that complex of feelings is not relevant to which sports teams a person should play on. The body is the only relevant consideration for that purpose.”

CNN’s attempt at clarification did not help. “CNN’s statement that ‘the sex listed on their original birth certificate is a misleading way of describing the body they have,’ is absurd,” Morse said. “The sex of the body has not changed. The individual has changed their ‘gender identity,’ not the sex of their bodies.

“This is CNN being CNN,” Morse said. “In a story last August on screenings for cervical cancer, instead of ‘women,’ it used the expression ‘individuals with a cervix.’ Increasingly, doctrinaire outlets like CNN, try to avoid saying ‘men’ and ‘women’ which are thought to exclude so-called transsexuals.

“CNN’s newscasts should come with a warning label: ‘No News Ahead. Propaganda Only. Some viewers may find the following broadcast upsetting.’”

Morse added, “Bias like this is one reason the Ruth Institute recently launched our Transgender Resource Center with research, media and other resources to fight the transgender ideology which permeates our society.”
