Excerpt from an article published July 17, 2020 at NCRegister.com.
Jennifer Roback Morse and the team at the Ruth Institute have been on the front lines in the fight against the sexual revolution since the institute’s founding in 2008. In those foundational early years, the mission was mostly educational: a series of on-campus talks and debates designed to give college students the tools and information they needed to practice sexual purity as young adults and thus be better prepared for marriage.
By 2013, the institute’s mission had expanded into the political arena, battling for the legal protection of natural marriage on the national stage. Now, in 2020, Morse and her team take on the many-headed hydra of the sexual revolution itself, mainly by seeking healing and justice for its victims: spouses abandoned due to lenient “no-fault” divorce laws, children growing up with only one parent, women hoodwinked by the feminist push to sacrifice their deep desire for children to the cultural god of career advancement, and now, men, women and children lost in the swirling confusion of the transgender movement.
If you want a deep dive into these topics, the Ruth Institute’s annual “Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution” is exactly what you’re looking for. The conference will be livestreamed on YouTube from the institute’s headquarters in Lake Charles, Louisiana, beginning Friday evening, July 17, with the Ruth Institute Awards dinner at 6pm CDT, then continuing with the conference proper on Saturday, July 18, beginning at 8am Central Time. A virtual conference pass is $30 per individual, but if you can quickly throw together a “watch party,” up to 10 people can attend for $75.
Topics to be covered on Saturday include child sexual abuse, pornography addiction, and how to break free from the “LGBT” subculture.
