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.

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 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.

Fighting School Corruption a Part of Ruth Inst. Summit

Fighting School Corruption a Part of Ruth Inst. Summit

The Ruth Institute’s Fourth Annual Survivors’ Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family,” July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA, will include panels on the corruption of education through sexual indoctrination and the transgender ideology.

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “Each week seems to bring a new revelation about public and private schools indoctrinating children in the Sexual Revolution. In June, the prestigious Dalton School in New York City showed 6-year-olds a cartoon of children discussing masturbation.”


It’s a tenet if the Sexual Revolution that children can’t be sexualized too early,” Morse said. “They’re grooming these kids for exploitation later in life.”

The Ruth Institute Summit will include a talk on “Resisting the Corruption of Education” by Family Watch International President Sharon Slater, and a session on “Legal Strategies for Reclaiming Education” with Maria Keffler, co-founder of Partners for Ethical Care, and Mary McAlister, Esq., Senior Litigation Counsel with the Child & Parental Rights Campaign.

Slater is also the chair of the UN Family Rights Caucus. She has directed multiple widely-acclaimed documentaries, including The War on Children: The Comprehensive Sexuality Education Agenda.

Keffler is also co-founder of the Arlington Parent Coalition and the author of Desist, Detrans & Detox: Getting Your Child Out of the Gender Cult. Keffler writes: “Blindsided when a child suddenly announces a transgender identity, a growing cadre of parents have found themselves under assault by an insidious predator: the billion-dollar gender industry.”

McAlister has advocated for parental rights at all levels of federal and state courts for nearly three decades. She has a passion for protecting the innocence of children and has been an advocate for children’s rights, particularly protection from the harms of early sexualization and sexual exploitation.

Morse said, “American schools have become indoctrination cells. Schools belong to parents and taxpayers, not the teachers’ unions, and certainly not Planned Parenthood and various LGBTQ groups. It’s time we reclaimed what’s rightfully ours and moved to protect the innocence of our children.”

Attendance to 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 July 6.

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

June 24, 2021

For Immediate Release

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.

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

This one-of-a-kind Summit brings together experts, witnesses and activists from a diverse range of professional and personal backgrounds.


Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “The Sexual Revolution has harmed millions who are systematically silenced by the mainstream culture. Children of Divorce, Post-Abortive Women, Refugees from the Hook-up culture or the LGBT subculture, those impacted by the ‘transgender’ ideology -- these and countless others have effectively been made socially invisible. Yet, if their stories were known, more people would understand the tremendous harm the Sexual Revolution has done, and the danger it poses to our future.”

Here are the Top 10 Reasons to attend the Ruth Institute’s Summit:

1. Learn to protect children from the Transgender movement – the latest attack on families and our culture based on the fiction that people can change their sex.

2. Discover how professionals can break the Sexual Revolution’s hold on medicine, education, law and media.

3. Get training to become an effective advocate for the family at our Ambassadors Program preceding the Summit.

4. Be inspired by stories such as that of Rev. Walter Hoye, the keynote speaker of the Friday Awards Dinner and author of the book, Black and Pro-life in America.

5. Learn the devastating impact of world-wide declining fertility, known as Demographic Winter, on a growing number of nations, including the US.

6. Celebrate the achievements of award winners, like our Activist of the Year, Sharon Slater, President of Family Watch International.

7. Learn why kids really do need their parents, from Book of the Year award recipient, Katy Faust, founder of Them Before Us.

8. Forge lasting relationships with allies you can count on.

9. Rest and recharge in a welcoming atmosphere.

10. Enjoy down-home Cajun cooking, the best food in America!

“We hope members of the pro-life and pro-family movements, as well as activists working on their own, will explore all we have to offer at our Survivors’ Summit,” Morse said.

Participants can attend in person or by live streaming with a Virtual Conference Pass. The Ambassadors Training Program can be attended through a brief application process.

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

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.

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

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.

A Panel of Medical Professionals including Dr. Michael Parker of Catholic Medical Association and Dr. Donna Harrison, Executive Director of the American Association of Pro-Life Ob-Gyns.

Defending the Body with Erin Brewer of Partners for Ethical Care and Fr. Sebastian Walshe of Catholic Answers.

Equipping the Pro-Life Movement to Confront Trans-minded Clients, with a therapist on trans-psychology and an attorney on the trans suicide issue.

Surviving the Sexual Revolution, a panel including Maritza Cummings, a “desister,” who transitioned from female to male, and then transitioned back.

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.”

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

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.

Ruth Inst. Awards Banquet to Celebrate Courageous Pro-Life/ Pro-Family Leaders

Ruth Inst. Awards Banquet to Celebrate Courageous Pro-Life/ Pro-Family Leaders

The Ruth Institute’s 4th Annual Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family,” July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA, kicks off with an Awards Banquet.

“This banquet honors heroic leaders and authors who shine the light of truth on the Sexual Revolution,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

The Book of the Year Award will be received by Katy Faust, co-author of Them Before Us. Published in February 2021, Them Before Us dispels prevalent, harmful myths concerning children’s rights, including:


  • Kids only need love and safety – moms and dads are optional.
  • Love makes a family – biology is irrelevant.
  • Children are resilient and will “get over” divorce.

Faust was a recent guest on the Ruth Inst’s weekly Dr. J Show, discussing why children shouldn’t be forced to sacrifice their happiness for their parents.

Sharon Slater, president of Family Watch International, will receive the Activist of the Year Award. Slater also chairs the UN Family Rights Caucus and is the author of Stand for the Family: A Call to Responsible Citizenship, which contains research on many sensitive topics, including human sexuality.

Slater was also a recent guest on the Dr. J. Show, discussing the UN’s insane sex-ed program.

The night’s keynote speaker, Rev. Walter Hoye, will receive the Witness of the Year Award. In 2009, Rev. Hoye was convicted of protesting at an abortion clinic in Oakland, CA, in violation of the city’s “bubble law.” He was offered a lesser sentence of community service if he agreed to never return to the clinic, but he refused and spent 30 days in jail until his conviction was overturned.

This experience is the subject of his book, Black and Pro-life in America, The Incarceration and Exoneration of Walter B. Hoye.

Hoye is the Founder and President of both the Issues4Life Foundation and the California Civil Rights Foundation. He is the founder of the Frederick Douglass Foundation of California, an Executive Member of the National Black Pro-life Coalition, and a member of the Ruth Institute Board of Directors. In a Dr. J Show interview, he discussed why abortion is the most difficult conversation to have with African Americans.

Following the July 16 Awards Banquet is the Survivors’ Summit on July 17. Find more information and register for these events here.
