Ruth Speaks Out

This blog is maintained by the Ruth Institute. It provides a place for our Circle of Experts to express themselves. This is where the scholars, experts, students and followers of the Ruth Institute engage in constructive dialogue about the issues surrounding the Sexual Revolution. We discuss public policy, social practices, legal doctrines and much more.


Thanksgiving Message from Dr. Morse

Thanksgiving, more than any other American holiday, is a family holiday. 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.

Not so much this year. 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. Some states won’t let anyone enter without a negative COVID test, or a two-week self-quarantine. Pennsylvania announced new restrictions ten days before Thanksgiving, disrupting thousands of people’s plans.

Some of the virus-containment rules are blatantly biased. The Mayor of San Francisco tried to limit church attendance in the massive cathedral there to one person at a time. Also in California, a judge lifted restrictions on strip clubs, considering them protected free speech. But churches in the same jurisdiction are closed for indoor services.


 

In the meantime, some of these self-appointed dictators transgress their own rules. California Governor Gavin Newsome was recently caught dining at one of the most exclusive and expensive restaurants in the state in direct violation of rules he himself had established. And let’s not forget Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her infamous unmasked trip to a beauty salon.

But sanity will eventually prevail. Thanksgiving is a family holiday and the family is bigger than government. Yes, there are risks involved in travel and gatherings. Yes, some people become very sick from COVID. Some even die. 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.

The experts who are advising the governments are single-minded in their focus on reducing numbers of cases. They cannot see the collateral damage to other legitimate aspects of human thriving.

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

Most of all, the so-called experts don’t take account of the divisions their sometimes-arbitrary rules have created. Families and friends are quarreling over who cares the most about other people.

  • “If you really cared about grandma’s health, you’d wear a mask and stay home.”
  • “If you really cared about the future we are leaving our children, you’d fight the governmental takeover of all of social life.”

And so on. Not only are we physically isolated. We are also psychologically isolated from people we love, work with and do business with.

One thing is for sure: these divisions are not natural. These conflicts are driven by the propaganda-artists in the media. Are they trying to pit us against each other? I don’t know that. But, let me stand this rhetoric on its head and speak directly to the media and others responsible for creating this current climate of fear and division.

  • If you really cared about our health, you would have encouraged people to take vitamin supplements that boost our immune systems at modest cost.
  • If you really cared about our health, you would have encouraged people to lose weight. We’ve known for some time that obesity is a risk factor for complications from COVID, as it is for respiratory diseases in general. If you had applied yourself to persuading people to lose weight instead of scaring them to death, a lot of people would have lost a lot of weight by now and been much healthier overall.
  • Speaking of scaring people to death, if you really cared about our health, you wouldn’t be. You would be leading a media campaign to “stay calm and carry on,” as the British did during WWII.
  • If you really cared about our health, you would be leading by example, suffering in the trenches alongside everyone else, instead of standing on your privileged positions and flouting your own edicts.

As I say, 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. The Ruth Institute is an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love. Our coalition includes Roman Catholics, Orthodox Christians, Evangelicals and Pentecostals, Mormons and observant Jews. I can tell you that we are united in this one point at least: God created the family in the Garden of Eden. He created the Cosmos, the plants and animals, men and women. And finally, He created the first social institution: the married couple.

Every totalitarian movement of the past 100 years has despised and feared the family. That’s because the family can stand on its own and is a potential threat to any totalitarian plan. 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 pointed out that as members of a free society, we don’t want a “ruling class.” We want and need, a leadership class. It has become sadly clear that too many of the Elites are rulers, not leaders. In my decades of studying the Sexual Revolution, I have concluded that virtually every profession has been corrupted by that toxic ideology. Doctors who can’t figure when life begins or whether a boy can become a girl. Lawyers who happily use the law, not for justice, but as an ideological battering ram. Librarians and schoolteachers with agendas that undermine the wishes and authority of parents. It would not surprise me to learn that corruption I know about in these professions is not the only arena in which ideology trumps truth and science and justice.

I speak now to educated people, professional people, anyone with skills or authority or influence: I call upon you to use these gifts for the common good. The Elites, including the billionaires, the Tech Moguls, the politicians and the media, rely on you to implement their policies. They need you to supply technical knowledge and to keep systems running. They need you to actually see patients and go to court and choose library books and decide what the school play will be.

I call on you: Become servant leaders, not tools of the Ruling Class. When you see untruth or deception or corruption in your sphere of influence, don’t let it slide. Do something about it.

And everyone: do keep this one thought in mind: The family was created by God. Governments were created by man. God is infinite and everlasting. Governments are finite and fleeting. Only the family endures. We will outlast any government.

On that note, I’m off to start making pies for my family’s Thanksgiving feast. I’m Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, for the Ruth Institute, wishing you all a very blessed Thanksgiving Day.

 


Ruth Inst. Applauds Court Ruling on Reparative Therapy Bans

“In striking down bans on Sexual Orientation Change Efforts to lessen same-sex attraction, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals sided with First Amendment free speech against LGBT dogma,” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., Founder and President of the Ruth Institute.

The court overturned local ordinances of the City of Boca Raton and the county of Palm Beach, Florida. These ordinances prohibited licensed counselors from offering counseling to minors who voluntarily seek their help to “reduce same-sex behavior and attraction and eliminate what they term confusion over gender identity.” (pg. 4)

Morse noted, “Sexual Revolutionary activists, and the professional associations they control, have successfully persuaded local governments to adopt these bans. The activists argue that this type of therapy, based solely on conversation between therapist and client, are psychologically harmful. I am especially pleased that the Court’s majority considered the evidence on this point.”


The Court stated: “[The Defendants] present a series of reports and studies setting out harms of SOCE. But when examined closely, these documents offer assertions rather than evidence, at least regarding the effects of purely speech-based SOCE. Indeed, a report from the American Psychological Association, relied on by the defendants, concedes that ‘nonaversive and recent approaches to SOCE have not been rigorously evaluated.’” (pg. 21)

“Without conclusive evidence, LGBT organizations insist that homosexuality is innate, and that individuals with same-sex attraction must accept their fate -- that they are condemned to be ‘gay,’ whether they like it or not,” Morse explained.

In fact, the majority decision pointed out that the ordinances contain an exception for “counseling that provides support and assistance to a person undergoing gender transition.” But the Court goes on to observe, “No such carveout exists for sexual orientation. The ordinances thus codify a particular viewpoint—sexual orientation is immutable, but gender is not—and prohibit the therapists from advancing any other perspective when counseling clients. That viewpoint may be widely shared in the communities that passed the ordinances, but widespread agreement is beside the point; the question is whether a speaker’s viewpoint determines his license to speak.” (pg. 12)

Morse congratulated Liberty Counsel, which provided representation to the therapists in this case. “I agree with Liberty Counsel President Mat Staver when he said that ‘This is a huge victory for counselors and their clients to choose the counsel of their choice free of political censorship from government ideologues.’”

Vatican Cover-Up Continues: Dr. J's Explosive Interview w/ Catholic Journalist Phil Lawler

On today’s Dr. J Show, veteran journalist, now editor of Catholic World News, Philip Lawler shares his insights on the newly released McCarrick Report, the Pope’s comments on same-sex marriage, the President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops congratulating Joe Biden on the election, and the status of the Church in China. The show’s host is Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., Ruth Institute Founder and President.

Of Pope Francis’s comments on homosexual marriage, Lawler observed: “The Pope wasn’t changing Church doctrine on marriage. He can’t do that. Unfortunately, his remarks provided an opportunity for journalists to misrepresent Church doctrine.”

Lawler agreed with a November 10th Ruth Institute release questioning the propriety of Archbishop Jose Gomez, President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, congratulating Biden before the votes are fully counted and certified.


Lawler said: “There was no need for Gomez to say anything. He wanted to curry favor with the man who will likely be the next president.” Morse added: “Biden promises soft-persecution of the Catholic Church and abortion under all circumstances, paid for by taxpayers.”

Regarding the report on ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s sexual abuse, Lawler noted that the report is silent on important questions, including: “How did he rise through the ranks?” and “Who helped him?” Lawler said the only member of the hierarchy who comes off badly in the report, ironically, was Archbishop Carlo Vigano, former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States who blew the whistle on McCarrick.

McCarrick helped to negotiate the Vatican/China deal, whose details have yet to be made public. Morse charged, “It’s believed that the Pope will now select Chinese bishops from a list submitted by the communist regime. This comes at a time when the Church – both underground and official—faces increased persecution.”

The Dr. J Show is a weekly interview that features experts on issues relating to marriage, family and human sexuality. New episodes release every Friday.

100 Years of Legal Abortion: Happy ‘Birthday,’ Subhumanism

Our thanks to these authors for the mention and for calling us "One of the best comprehensive pro-life organizations around"!

By Jason Jones & John Zmirak

Published on November 18, 2020, at The Stream.

November 18 marks a powerful anniversary. In 1920, the newly-hatched dragon that was the Soviet Union legalized abortion. That made it the first government in the West to embrace the destruction of children since the conversion of Constantine. No one even dared to raise the idea of doing that until the 18th century, when the Marquis de Sade proposed it — in the midst of one of his many pornographic, literally Satanist books.

The egg he laid took centuries to mature, but it pecked its way out 100 years ago today. Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir both argued for abortion as the only way women could be fully “equal” to men. Equally free, that is, to abandon the innocent product of sexual gratification. In the U.S., Ruth Bader Ginsburg picked up de Sade’s argument (likely ignorant of its origins) and tried to enshrine it in U.S. law. In the Soviet Union, by the best estimates, the average woman had six abortions in her lifetime.

Abortion and Totalitarianism: You’re Only “Free” in the Bedroom

One of the best comprehensive pro-life organizations around is the Ruth Institute. Its founder and president, Jennifer Roback Morse, issued a statement to mark this bleak day in history.


‘It’s not surprising that a totalitarian state pioneered legalized abortion. Just as communism violates human rights on a massive scale, abortion denies the most fundamental of rights — the right to life — to the unborn child.

That’s why it’s ironic that so many international organizations try to portray abortion as a fundamental human right, comparable to free speech or the right to a fair trial.’

Until the end of World War II, legalized abortion was limited to Russia and countries controlled by the U.S.S.R. Then Sweden and Japan followed suit. In the 1960s and 70s, many European democracies passed similar laws. In 1973, the Supreme Court imposed abortion on the United States.

Today, the World Health Organization estimates there are 50 million abortions a year worldwide. ‘The number of abortions performed in the past 100 years could be in the billions,’ Morse said.

She also warned: ‘Now some prominent NGOs and government aid-givers are trying to force abortion on African countries like Kenya, despite overwhelming local opposition. It’s important for us all to understand the origins of legalized abortion. It started with a regime dedicated to the abolition of human rights and the family, and the massive expansion of state power.’

Wednesday Marks 100th Anniversary of Legalized Abortion Worldwide

“On November 18, 1920, Soviet Russia became the first country to legalize abortion,” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., founder and president of The Ruth Institute.

“It’s not surprising that a totalitarian state pioneered legalized abortion. Just as communism violates human rights on a massive scale, abortion denies the most fundamental of rights – the right to life – to the unborn child,” Morse declared. “That’s why it’s ironic that so many international organizations try to portray abortion as a fundamental human right, comparable to free speech or the right to a fair trial.”

Until the end of World War II, legalized abortion was limited to Russia and countries controlled by the U.S.S.R. Then Sweden and Japan followed suit. In the 1960s and 70s, many European democracies passed similar laws. In 1973, the Supreme Court imposed abortion on the United States.

Today, the World Health Organization estimates there are 50 million abortions a year worldwide. “The number of abortions performed in the past 100 years could be in the billions,’’ Morse said.

“It’s important for us all to understand the origins of legalized abortion. It started with a regime dedicated to the abolition of human rights and the family, and the massive expansion of state power,” Morse charged.

In Kenya, the fight against abortion is being led by groups like the Kenya Christian Professionals Forum.

Human Life International Poland has also been working to raise awareness of this tragic anniversary.

 




Pope Francis and Civil Unions: Be Not Afraid!

Pope Francis, Pope Francis greets the faithfulCOMMENTARY: Scripture, sacred Tradition and our Catechism all agree: Sexual activity must be confined to a lawfully married husband and wife.

by Jennifer Roback Morse

Many of our friends from a variety of faith traditions have contacted the Ruth Institute regarding the recent statements attributed to Pope Francis regarding the Church’s position on civil unions for same-sex couples. I have one statement and two messages.

The statement is very simple: Pope Francis has not changed the magisterial teaching of the Catholic Church.

My messages are very simple, too:


1. Do not be diverted.

2. Do not be demoralized.

Let me explain.

I can tell you with 100% confidence that Pope Francis has not changed the magisterial teaching of the Catholic Church on the immorality of homosexual acts or on the true nature of marriage being the life-giving union between a man and a woman or anything else. How can I be so sure? Because he does not have the authority to change the teaching.

Every Catholic schoolchild is taught that the pope is only infallible when he speaks ex cathedra on matters of faith and morals. As a child, I was taught, as many of you were, that the pope can be wrong if he predicts who is going to win the World Series. As an adult, I extended that simple thought: When the pope makes personnel appointments or does foreign policy, he can be wrong, sometimes disastrously so. And, when he gives interviews to journalists with agendas, he certainly can be wrong.

the vatican

In fact, there are levels of “magisterial-ness,” if you want to call it that. Some writings of the pope carry more weight than others. Look closely at this resource, which explains various levels of doctrinal authority. You will not see “random papal statements to tendentious journalists who cut and paste the pope’s words to his own liking” anywhere on the list.

But what did Pope Francis really mean to say? I have no idea. I don’t think it is productive to try to “explain” or “explain away” his latest confusing statements. I do have some thoughts about what he and those around him may be trying to accomplish.

I believe the Pope and his advisers are well aware that he does not have the authority to change the teaching. The Vatican has in effect, suggested that the teaching has changed. The Vatican held a reception honoring the filmmaker. The Vatican Press office initially ordered silence about the controversy. The following week, the Vatican Secretary of State issued a “clarification” that the average person most likely neither heard nor understood. The net result: people continue to hold the incorrect impression that the Church’s teaching has “progressed” on the matter of homosexuality.

I can think of two possible explanations for why they might do this. First, they are positioning themselves as heroes to the gay-friendly world media, by appearing to move the mean old, nasty, out-of-touch Catholic Church out of the darkness and into the Modern Sunlight. You could think of this as a bright shiny object that attracts everyone’s attention.

Meanwhile, they divert attention from the clergy sexual abuse cover-up, including the newly-released but long-delayed McCarrick Report. While the release of this report is an important step, many questions remain. It focuses on how people above McCarrick in the ecclesial ladder missed the numerous red flags. But so far absent is the all-important question of the networks of people below McCarrick. People who owe their careers and other benefits to McCarrick may still have secrets, still be causing problems, and may still be flying under the radar. I do not know how to get to the bottom of something like this. But that makes it all the more important that we remain vigilant.

This is why my first message to faithful Catholics is: Do not be diverted. Take every opportunity to steer the conversation back to our insistence that the Vatican continue becoming more transparent. Do not allow another confusing papal statement to change the subject away from this important topic.

The second possible explanation for this latest episode of Vatican-induced doctrinal confusion is to demoralize the remaining faithful Catholics who love the Church’s teachings and are trying to defend them. The sexual revolutionaries would love to completely take over the Catholic Church and put an end to our resistance to their ideology. As we all know, the Church’s ancient teaching is one of the last remaining bulwarks against the continued crimes of the Sexual Revolution.

This brings me to my second message: Do not be demoralized.

Demoralizing one’s opponents is an important aspect of psychological warfare. Do not give them the satisfaction of being discouraged or upset. Do you have a right to be angry? You bet. Is it in your interest to be discouraged? Absolutely not.

Catholics who wholly embrace Catholic teaching may find it painful to realize that the Church, the bride of Christ, has been corrupted by the worst sort of sexual revolutionaries. I agree. It is painful. It is also a fact. However, we are not alone. Pretty much every profession and every sector of society, and yes, pretty much every church, has been corrupted by the Sexual Revolution.

Pope John Paul II, Be not afraid

The Church’s teaching is good and true. Scripture, sacred Tradition and our Catechism all agree. Sexual activity must be confined to a lawfully married husband and wife. This teaching belongs to all of us. The Pope has a responsibility to defend it. So does every bishop and every priest. And so, dear friends, do we as baptized Catholics. We have every right and responsibility to defend the teaching. If the hierarchy refuses to defend the teaching, it is all the more important that we do so.

Remember: Pope Francis does not have the authority to change Church teaching. He knows this. The media’s barely-concealed glee that the Catholic Church is ‘progressing’ is a distraction. We should work together to get the conversation back where it belongs, which is that the Vatican needs to be fully transparent about clergy sex abuse and harassment, and the role that homosexuality among the clergy plays in this.

Everything else is a distraction. In the immortal words of the late great Pope St. John Paul II: Be not afraid!

 




Ruth Institute deeply disturbed by Catholic bishop’s ill-conceived statement on the 2020 presidential election

Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., founder and president of The Ruth Institute, issued a statement criticizing the US Conference of Catholic Bishops for congratulating Vice President Biden on his election as president, calling it “ill-conceived” and “disappointing.”

“Congratulating Joe Biden on his election before all the votes have been counted shows poor judgement at best,” Morse declared.

“The media have no authority to decide an election. Secretaries of State must certify the results in their state. USCCB president Archbishop Gomez is surely aware of the numerous disputes surrounding the integrity of the election process. For him to prematurely ‘recognize’ that ‘Joseph R. Biden, Jr. has received enough votes to be elected the 46th President of the United States,’ is to claim a knowledge and an authority that he does not possess.”

Morse said Gomez’s call for “unity” and “compromise” is “simply not appropriate to the situation.”

 


 

“All voters, including Catholics, in states with credible accusations of election fraud have every right to contest the election through all legal channels,” Morse asserted. “They should not be asked to ‘promote fraternity and mutual trust,’ when their trust has been violated by election tampering. The court challenges and legal processes should be allowed to proceed without prejudice.”

“When the media claimed to ‘call’ the election for Biden, many thoughtful people concluded that they were attempting to build momentum for the idea that Biden had won, in spite of the serious problems with the election process. This is precisely the sort of thing that many Americans have come to expect from the legacy media, with its barely concealed commitment to the Biden campaign. What should the public conclude when an official of the Catholic Church makes a comparable premature call?”

Morse saved her harshest criticism for Archbishop Gomez’s final statement, which she found “frankly, revolting.”

“He asks the Virgin Mary to help us work together to fulfill the vision of America as ‘one nation under God, where the sanctity of every human life is defended and freedom of conscience and religion are guaranteed.’

“But the Democratic Party promises to do precisely the opposite on every point,” Morse said. “They will eliminate what remains of religious conscience rights. They have no respect for innocent human life. And they even tried to take an innocuous reference to God out of their 2012 platform.”

Morse explained that: “The Ruth Institute is an interfaith international coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love. Everything we do is in keeping with the teachings of the Catholic Church. We have followers around the world: Evangelicals, Mormons, and Jews, who are working hard to defend Catholic teachings, not because the teachings are Catholic, but because they are true. None of us has the slightest illusion about the nature of the Democratic Party.”

Finally, Dr. Morse emphasized, “The Ruth Institute reminds the public that Archbishop Gomez’s statement has no authority to bind Catholics who may wish to contest the election through legally permissible means.

“We call on all Catholic clergy to distance themselves from this unfortunate and ill-conceived statement by Archbishop Jose Gomez, President of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.”

 


Ruth Inst. deeply disappointed by Catholic bishop's ill-conceived election statement

Statement by Ruth Institute President, Jennifer Roback Morse, regarding the US Conference of Catholic Bishops' statement regarding the election:

I am deeply disappointed by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops President, Archbishop Jose Gomez’s statement on the US Presidential election. Congratulating Joe Biden on his election as President of the United States before all the votes have been counted shows poor judgement at best. Statements by the media have no authority to decide an election. Secretaries of State in each state must certify the results of the elections in their state. Archbishop Gomez is surely aware of the numerous disputes across the country surrounding the integrity of the election process. For him to prematurely “recognize that Joseph R. Biden, Jr. has received enough votes to be elected the 46th President of the United States,” is to claim a knowledge and an authority that he does not possess.


Furthermore, Archbishop Gomez’s call for “unity” and “compromise” is not appropriate to the situation. All voters, including Catholic voters, in states with credible accusations of election fraud have every right to contest the election through all legal channels. They should not be asked to “promote fraternity and mutual trust,” when their trust has been violated by credible allegations of election tampering. The court challenges and legal processes should be allowed to proceed without prejudice.

This is precisely the sort of thing that many Americans have come to expect from the legacy media, with its barely concealed commitment to the Biden campaign. What should the public conclude when an official of the Catholic Church makes a comparable premature congratulation?

Most importantly, Archbishop Gomez’s final statement is frankly, revolting. He asks the Virgin Mary to help us work together to fulfill the vision of America, “one nation under God, where the sanctity of every human life is defended and freedom of conscience and religion are guaranteed.” The Democratic Party promises to do precisely the opposite on every point. They will eliminate what remains of religious conscience rights. They have no respect for innocent human life. And they booed at the mention of God at their 2012 convention.

The Ruth Institute is an interfaith international coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love. Everything we do is in keeping with the teachings of the Catholic Church. We have followers around the world: Evangelicals, Mormons, and Jews, who are working hard to defend Catholic teaching, not because the teaching is Catholic, but because the teaching is true. None of us has the slightest illusion about the Democratic Party.

The Ruth Institute reminds the public that Archbishop Gomez’s statement has no authority to bind Catholics who may wish to contest the election through legally permissible means.

We call on all Catholic clergy to distance themselves from this unfortunate and ill-conceived statement by Archbishop Jose Gomez, President of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.


Kenya Threatened by Cultural Colonialism in Abortion Bill

“Despite a recent poll showing 85% of Kenyan citizens support the right to life, international NGOs are pushing a new abortion bill, which would override the will of the people,” said Ruth Institute Founder and President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

The deceptively named Reproductive Healthcare Bill is currently before the Kenyan Parliament. Morse noted: “The Kenyan Constitution, updated in 2010, states that ‘the life of a person begins at conception.’ It prohibits abortion except when the life or health of the mother is threatened.”

The bill not only imposes abortion on demand, but violates the conscience-rights of medical workers by providing a three-year prison sentence and a fine of one million Kenyan shillings for those who refuse to refer a woman to an abortion provider or, in an emergency, perform the abortion themselves.


“This not only nullifies the right to life enshrined in the Kenyan Constitution, but mandates draconian punishment for medical professionals who refuse to participate in abortions – either directly or indirectly,” Morse said.

Anne Kioko, CitizenGo Campaign Director for Africa, said the bill goes beyond abortion. “It imposes abortion on demand, surrogacy, and sexualization of children through what they euphemistically term ‘age appropriate’ education, which also advocates homosexuality for children.”

Vincent K. Kimosop, Secretary of the Kenya Christian Professionals Forum, confirmed that, “The current version of the bill allows minors access to contraceptives and information on sex without parental participation or responsibility.”

Morse observed: “Groups like Planned Parenthood International, Marie Stopes International and the Soros-funded Open Democracy foundations have been relentless, both lobbying and making legalization of abortion a condition for international aid.”

Speaking at the 2019 Uganda National Youth Conference sponsored by the Kasana-Luweero Diocese, Morse stated: “The old economic colonialism attempted to dominate the physical resources of the African continent. The new ideological imperialism attempts to dominate the soul of Africa.”

Morse concluded: “The Sexual Revolution is not native to Africa. Wealthy and powerful people and organizations have spent vast sums of money to promote the Sexual Revolution.” These elites have “captured the use of government and international agencies to impose these ideologies around the world, especially on traditional societies.”


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

“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.”
