    Originally Published March 13, 2022 by WQPH Radio; First Do No Harm with Dr. Mark Rollo Republished by Ruth Institute, May 4, 2022   The Three Ideologies that are Destroying Your Life Right Now!   In this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we are privileged to listen in to Dr. Mark Rollo's interview with Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse on his show, First Do No Harm. Hear them discuss why the Sexual Revolution is a fabricated product of the totalitarian State. Dr. Morse explains the three ideologies of the Sexual State: the Contraceptive Ideology, the Divorce Ideology, and the Gender Ideology. She speaks of how these three ideologies have thoroughly infected our laws and civil institutions and how that is hurting the lives of millions of Americans. But, Dr. Morse offers a simple answer to these evils: the Catholic moral system which protects the rights of children, men, and women much better than any alternative. It is the most coherent, natural-law based system. Natura law refutes the three ideologies. Be sure to hear her for yourself.

    Originally published February 24, 2022 by Women of Grace, EWTN. Republished by Ruth Institute April 30, 2022. Glimmers of Grace: Moments of Peace and Healing Following Sexual Abuse In this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we are delighted to listen in to Johnette Williams show, Women of Grace on EWTN. Faith Hakesley, author of the book, Glimmers of Grace: Moments of Peace and Healing Following Sexual Abuse and associate of the Ruth Institute shares with us very helpful insights on healing after sexual abuse. Many of today are wounded from the Sexual Revolution and today we have the chance to hear from one of Ruth Institute's experts on what to do after being sexually abused. Hakesley tells us that healing is not linear and not typical. It is life-long and may pop up again in the future and may need to be handled differently at different times in life. But that is okay, because God has glimmers of grace in store for the suffering soul. Glimmers of grace from God are opportunities, moments or events that God sends or causes that allows the soul to taste peace even if for a moment. They are unique to the individual and are helpful to souls suffering from abuse. Glimmers of grace lead to gratitude for what you already have, and Hakesley insists that this is an important component of any healing process: gratitude! Suffering, as Hakesley astutely points out, is a result of original sin, and we do not live in a perfect world. “Jesus never promised we would never suffer; He promised He would be with us forever and that He would suffer with us… even though sometimes we may not feel His presence.” Hakesley adds, “trauma rewires the brain – [after trauma there is a] need to retrain the brain to view the world [correctly].” Hakelsey also points out the difference between a victim and a survivor, which impacts a person's self-worth and identity. You will want to hear her wise words on how to stop being a victim and how to truly live (survivor). Continue listening to get the full story.

Republished by Ruth Institute April 29, 2022.   In this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we are delighted to listen in to Johnette Williams show, Women of Grace on EWTN. Faith Hakesley, author of the book, Glimmers of Grace: Moments of Peace and Healing Following Sexual Abuse and associate of the Ruth Institute shares with us her journey to healing she embarked on following the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her priest. Hakesley tells us that because her attacker was a priest her path to healing had particular obstacles. She explains that religious faith is often an important tool in the healing process of a victim but that in the special cases where the abuser is a representative of faith, such as a priest, the victim feels betrayed by the faith and the religious structure involved. There is a difficulty in keeping the faith because the abuse is no longer only sexual but is also spiritual, an intensifier of the pain. Though this abuse left her a wounded Faith, her name and her religious belief, a nobler hope was born by the wonders of God's grace. Hakesley briefly touches on how seemingly innocent signs of grooming she experienced suddenly led to an attack that lasted for some considerable time. In this dark place of pain and agony, she began to hate God. And everything unraveled when her brother died unexpectedly and she found herself in the office of a bereavement counselor. In the very first meeting, a glimmer of grace shone, and she found the courage to speak up of the abuse she had suffered. Now carrying the cross of two separate traumas, she tells her parents and begins the arduous process of healing. Friends, please continue listening to hear the beautiful story that Faith Hakesley tells, a story that there is hope and healing after sexual abuse.

You will hear these two engaging speakers discuss her book The Sexual State: How Elite Ideologies are Destroying Lives and Why the Church Was Right All Along Dr. Morse tells Dr. Rollo of how she transitioned from a seemingly tranquil life as an economics teacher at Yale to a defender of the family and founder of the Ruth Institute. She tells of the adoption of her son from a Romanian orphanage and the birth of her daughter which led to her having two children in less than six months. This abrupt change in life taught her many things, but most importantly, that children need their parents. Dr. Morse expounds on three of Ruth Institute's core values, near and dear to all of us who work with her: Firstly, that all people have the right to know their cultural heritage and genetic identity. Secondly, that every child has a right to a relationship with his or her natural mother and father, except for an unavoidable tragedy. And thirdly, that we reject the idea that a child is a problem to solve if you don't want one and an object to purchase if you do want one. She explains that these are natural principles that arise from simply considering the perspective of the child in society as opposed to the adults needs and wants. Dr. Morse laments that society treats adults as weak beings who will be crushed if they don't get what they want and yet views children as strong, resilient youths who will quickly rebound from divorce and other traumas. The end result: adults get what they want while the child's rights are denied. Continue listening to hear the facts.

Don Feder on Demographic Winter On this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we tune in to Trending with Timmerie on Relevant Radio where Ruth Institute's Communications Director, Mr. Don Feder, speaks on Demographic Winter. Mr. Don Feder highlights that one of the darkest trials awaiting the human race is Demographic Winter: the worldwide decline in birthrates and the impending catastrophes that this will cause. He  explains that the Japanese, having one of the lowest fertility rates in the world, has coined the term “lonely-death” to describe the phenomenon of persons dying without any living relatives to mourn or bury them. Japan has developed an industry to address this problem of humanely disposing ‘lonely' corpses. Feder warns that we are heading for “terra incognito” unknown land where we do not even know what this implosion of population will cause. Nevertheless, Feder offers sage advice: marriage is the answer to Demographic Winter! Generally, where there are marriages there are babies. The worldwide marriage rate has declined more than the fertility rate and if the marriage issue is mended then perhaps the coming demographic crisis can be averted. Feder even offers a second answer to the coming Demographic Winter, but you will have to continue listening to hear him tell you. Be sure to get the full story!

She gets into some of the gory details of what these gender-confused youths experience by taking cross-sex hormones, mutilating their bodies, and never being happy with their self-image. Because of their age, they retard their natural development and don't reach the fullness of growth which manifests in adulthood. Dr. Brewer explains that President Biden's Equality Act will make Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (SOCE), illegal, fund transition interventions, and require doctors to participate in them, which necessarily will be a curb on the religious freedom of healthcare professionals. It will allow men to infiltrate women sports and not only dominate them in the arena but also in the bathrooms. There is a big danger here. Continue listening to get the scoop!

Rob Jack's show on Sacred Heart Radio, Driving Home the Faith. Here he interviews Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse. They discuss many hot button topics that you are sure to want to hear. Of note, they consider the recent confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court and the irony of her appointment: President Biden announced he'd be appointing a woman, but the woman he appointed can't even define what a woman is. Dr. Morse offers for our consideration Justice Jackson's previous track record on child pornography and the exporters of it. You'll probably not hear about that one in the news so be sure to hear Dr. Morse talk about this. Dr. Morse explains how a redefinition of childhood had to take place in order for the Sexual Revolution to advance its agenda of separating sex from babies and consequently babies from parents and marriage. Dr. Morse asks from where our basic human rights come, because if it is not from God then it will necessarily come from the state as she hypothesizes Judge Jackson believes. Perhaps the greatest point that Dr. Morse makes in this episode is that ideological imperialism is the necessary evil of the Sexual State to achieve its end and Judge Jackson is the Sexual State in robe and gavel. Dr. Morse concludes with discussing with Fr. Rob Jack the recent gallup poll finding which may be the greatest evidence that shows that there is no gay gene and ‘born gay' is scientifically untenable: epidemics of genetic illnesses do not exist.

Dr. Morse highlights the destructive force of the “Population Bomb” myth which, unlike the short-lived success of the Ebola scare, successfully convinced people that there are too many people in the world. Dr. Morse explains that this idea has led to U.S. foreign aid often having “strings attached”: no U.S. aid if you don't accept LGBT, etc., etc. She points to the Philippines as an example of this subversive maltreatment who are now being heavily pressured to accept ‘no-fault divorce'.

Rob Jack's radio show, Driving Home the Faith Republished March 29, 2022   In this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we tune in to Dr. Morse' interview on Fr. Rob Jack's radio show, Driving Home the Faith. Here Dr. Morse speaks on the Catholic Church's teaching on Traditional Christian Sexual Ethics and how it is sorely needed in these times. Luxembourg Cardinal, Jean-Claude Hollerich, recently announced, “The sociological-scientific foundation of [Catholic] teaching [on homosexuality] is no longer correct.” Dr. Morse asks what science is he following. Promoters of LGBT lifestyle often act as if science has proven their worldview, but when pressed to divulge the scientific proof they can't prove any of their talking points. If you examine every one of their implied claims, every one of them is refuted by science. Dr. Morse also examines the historical battle for truth. The menacing attacks from the elites in power against the faithful truth speakers of the day is not anything new. She highlights the episode of St. John Chrysostom boldly calling out the empress' lavish lifestyle. Discussed is the fact that many Catholic dissidents seek approval for dissension from the Jesuits. Presented is the famous case of the Jesuits of Boston College meeting with the presidential Kennedy family and advising them on how to promote contraception and abortion and still be Catholic. “When the Catholic Church is true to Her mission and divine origin, She has the potential to lead the culture” explains Dr. Morse. Dr. Morse gives the laity an insight into what they can do while the hierarchy of the Church is wavering on the tough issues. What we have to do as laypeople is make the Church's teaching as clear as possible. The same people who leave the Church because of problems with the teaching on sexual issues can become the ones who come back to the Church because of problems they are experiencing in life because of disobedience regarding these same issues. Dr. Morse describes herself as being one such person.

Dr. Morse makes a keen observation in today's episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast. She observes that New York law makers and city officials consider going house to house to forcibly coerce COVID vaccinations. Yet, California decriminalizes knowingly spreading HIV/AIDS in sexual encounters. You can't take a risk of contracting or spreading COVID by remaining unvaccinated. However, you can be lied to by a sexual partner, contract an incurable disease, and denied justice in prosecuting the perpetrator. Why? Because no health risks are allowed…. unless they are risks to your sexual health. America is quickly becoming no longer a government of the constitution but a government of agencies. Congress passes off law-making power to agencies, which are non-elected and unaccountable, while congress sits back and does nothing.

    Air Date: Feb 10, 2021 Published: Feb. 11, 2022 In this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we listen to Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse who is interviewed by Erin Kunkle and Sarah Stonestreet on their show, the Strong Women Podcast sponsored by the Colson Center. Dr. Morse explains her upbringing, family history, and what the Ruth Institute is and its mission in the fight against the Sexual Revolution. She describes being the mother of two – one biological, the other by adoption – and having the ability to conduct informal controlled experiments because of this difference. She talks of developmental milestones, such as playing peek-a-boo, that were experienced differently between her two children. All of these interactions taught her firmly that children need their parents. Dr. Morse explains that if a child misses a developmental window, it is a lot of work to go back later and try to fix. A child only has one year to be one year old; only one year to be two years old, etc. Her adopted son missed a lot of developmental interactions in his first two years of life and Dr. Morse tells of some of the things she and her husband did to make up for it. In addition, Dr. Morse comments on the secular culture today that has hollowed out the meaning of important Christian words like equality, freedom, and love, and has replaced them with new meanings. For instance, when St. Paul speaks of freedom he means the ‘ability to do what one ought'. But by far, the most misunderstood word today is love. Far from being a mere feeling that one experiences with someone they like, Dr. Morse teaches that love, as conceived by great minds like St. Thomas Aquinas, is the pursuit of a greater good for the other, which points away from feelings to a concrete objective decision. It is in the will and not the fleeting emotions. And love is very important for the family. Children need their parents to learn what love is. Dr. Morse shares some wise words on St. John Paul II's Theology of the Body, and posits that women are the nurturers of life, and nurturing can take on many forms. She demonstrates this premise by sharing that she loves to cook for others and see them enjoy the food she makes. This does not necessarily entail raising a child, although mothers often cook for their children, but shows the beauty of womanhood and its many various forms of nurturing everyone. Finally, Dr. Morse shares what she considers a profound truth: doing God's will is what makes us happy. She explains that this is in direct contradiction to the ideologue's ideas of equality. How?

    China's One Child Policy: Increases Demand for Women, Doesn't Increase Wellbeing of Women

    In this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we tune in to Sacred Heart Radio's show, Driving Home the Faith with Fr. Rob Jack. Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse discusses China's One Child Policy and the bleak demographic winter that looms in the future. Dr. Morse relates that perhaps it is absolute power wielded by a few which has corrupted the government of China. “They get off on bossing people around and we have to account for that in the human condition, that some governmental policies are driven by corrupt persons who want to exercise their might.” [paraphrase] The age old maxim comes to mind: absolute power corrupts absolutely. Dr. Morse adds that China fell for the overpopulation myth, hook, line, and sinker, with its own citizens turning on each other and reporting on non-conforming neighbors. China assembled somewhere around one million persons into the birth control police, conveniently named, Family Planning Police. This was the largest, non-military police force in the world at the time. [1980s] Many economists and businesses thought that opening trade with China would make them want to be free like us. Capitalism was the great hope for them. But instead of liberalizing because we dealt with them, they stole all our technology. Dr. Morse emphatically stated: “The government has no right issuing birth limits on the citizen.” She comments that very few Western, non-religious, NGOs (non-governmental organization) said anything against the One Child Policy when it was implemented. It seemed only religious people, mostly Catholic, would acknowledge that it is intrinsically wrong for the government to decide family sizes. Now China is encouraging women to have children. They are beginning to see what looks to be a devastating future. And especially the future looks bleak for the women of China, who are outnumbered significantly by their male counterparts. This is because the overwhelming demand under the policy was for sons. “[This devastating One Child Policy] increased the demand for women; it did not in fact increase the wellbeing of women – it increased the wellbeing of men who control the women.” – Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse

    In this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we find Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse on the Capital Record Podcast published by National Review. She is interviewed by David Bahnsen. Dr. Morse tells her journey from an economist to a defender of the family, becoming a mother herself of two children. Dr. Morse describes what she learned early on as a mother: children need a relationship with their parents in order to build a conscience and be able to socialize properly with the outside world. And this has major effects on the economy. The people that keep contracts and promises and who are honest in the economy must come from somewhere – the family. A child without love cannot do even the most basic things in society. Is free enterprise and the family mutually exclusive? Are they really unrelated? Dr. Morse invites the listeners to consider that the family reproduces itself whereas the Sexual Revolution is sterile. She highlights that the Sexual Revolution is a war against nature. The fact that men and women are different is natural. The reality that children depend upon their own parents is an unavoidable truth. To sustain itself against nature, the Sexual Revolution requires force and therefore is totalitarian. The pioneers of the sexual revolution, persons like Wilhelm Reich and Alfred Kinsey, thought that all sexual taboos were harmful. Fast forward today, and now we see that almost all sexual taboos that put healthy distance between men, women, and scandalous actions have been removed. “A lot of the brokenness and families failing to perform, a lot of that has to be laid at the doorstep of Roe v. Wade. That is the accelerator…. [There is this] article that George Akerlof and Janet Yellen did… that was analyzing the fact that the advent of modern contraception and abortion actually is correlated with more out of wedlock pregnancy.” – Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse “Traditional Christian Sexual Ethics created equality because it said, ‘For every child: his or her own father and his or her own mother. For every man: one and only one wife. For every woman: one and only one husband. And for life. That created stability. That created equality.'” To hear the full, un-cut episode, see here: https://www.nationalreview.com/podcasts/capital-record/episode-51-the-anti-stimulative-impact-of-the-sexual-revolution/

Dr. Morse explains: the vision of the Ruth Institute is that every child be welcomed into life in a loving home with his or her own father and mother married to each other excepting for an unavoidable tragedy. And she adds that the mission of the Ruth Institute is to equip Christians to defend traditional Christian sexual ethics by providing sound sociological and scientific information, expertise, carefully reasoned arguments, as well as compelling stories from witnesses and survivors. She invites everyone to check out the two talks she gave in Wichita, Kansas at the Eighth Day Symposium. Dr. Morse then begins an abbreviated version of those two talks. For the full talks, see here: https://ruthinstitute.org/podcasts/dr-morse-speaks-on-combatting-sexual-revolution-at-eighth-day-symposium/ Among other things, Dr. Morse plainly states that if you start with the premise that children have a right to a relationship with both of their parents and reason backwards, you are going to end up with traditional Christian sexual ethics. This makes divorce and remarriage an abuse against a child's rights, excepting of course in grave, unavoidable tragedies. The lifelong cooperation of parents is needed for children to thrive. She gives three, tangible things that all of us can do to help defend the family: Without repentance, we don't have anything; in other words, we will never fix this society unless we as a society repent of the Sexual Revolution's ideology Sex-ed in the public schools must be stopped The victims of the Sexual Revolution need to be mobilized to repentance and activism where possible and advantageous – Dr. Morse gives the sterling example of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director There are so many enlightening and inspiring words that Dr. Morse shares in this episode, that you will want to listen for yourself!

    In this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we tune in to the Drew Mariani Show on Relevant Radio. Here Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D speaks on the decline of marriage and the abysmal fertility rates of American culture, even amongst conservatives. Father Sullins explains marriage is a pre-governmental, transcendent institution being founded in the Garden of Eden. Yet, despite this glorious aspect, it has suffered major blows within the past 7 decades. As he highlights in this podcast, inhumanity amongst young people has advanced to its heights, and this is largely because of advanced technology and social media. This inhumanity has led to the decline of young persons meeting and marrying each other. This phenomenon also operates concurrently with what sociologists call the Advanced Specialization of Modernity: that all of the functions in society that used to be grouped together have been differentiated and parceled out from each other. All of the goods and functions of marriage have come to operate independently from the institution itself. Formerly, in marriage, men and women sought companionship, sex-relations, children, financial security, etc. They would buy a home together, they would plan a life together. Those are all now things that young men and women do independently of marriage. Yet, Father Sullins doesn't leave it there. He emphasizes that another big factor in the decline of marriage was the decline of religion which has become empty and de-resonated. Be sure to listen to get the full scoop!

    Deborah DeGroff became interested in the subject of children's books when her oldest child began to read. While perusing the then-current literature of the eighties, she noted the qualitative difference between those books and the books she had read as a child. Upon more investigation, her curiosity shifted to concern. Thus began a lifetime of research and a resounding cry for parents to look inside their children's books. The end result of Deborah's research and concern is the book, Between The Covers: What's Inside A Children's Book. In the book, she connects the “dumbing down” of school books to a simultaneous shift from moral instruction to amoral, and ultimately to today's immoral indoctrination of our children.
