"I am going to be a boy, it will keep me safe"

Dr. Erin Brewer developed a trans identity after being molested in first grade. She did everything she could to be a boy. In her mind, she *was* a boy. But instead of enabling this delusion, Erin's mother eventually sent her to a therapist, and she received proper care to manage her gender confused feelings. She eventually accepted her gender, but continued running away from God. She became a star on the most popular pornography site in the world, making the top 20 most popular amateur performers, with over 10.8 million views and more than 400 videos. She was saved from pornography when she accepted Jesus as her Savior. She deleted all of her videos and is now speaking out about the dangers of gender ideology and porn. She openly shares her deeply personal story to help others understand the damage that is being done to our children by the transgender movement. Erin earned her bachelors degree from Hampshire College, and her Doctorate in Instructional Technology and Learning Science from Utah State University.

Ambassador & Presidential Candidate Alan Keyes Talks National Policy with The Ruth Institute

Ambassador Dr. Alan Keyes is an American conservative political activist, pundit, author, former ambassador to the United Nations and Adviser to President Ronald Reagan, two-time major presidential candidate, husband and father. His stated purpose in life, like that of the America’s Founders, is to provide a secure future for our children and our posterity.

Keyes is an unparalleled leader among moral conservatives. His Harvard University Doctorate in Government with its emphasis on our Constitution, his extensive experience in American government, along with his great faith in God’s part in the founding of that government enable him to provide a cogent defense of morality in America! Ambassador Keyes has unashamedly and consistently raised the standard of unalienable rights and Biblical truth in defense of preborn children. He confronts the culture of death with compelling and inspiring reasons why abortion must be banned from our land, and speaks in all parts of our country in an attempt to educate those unaware of the threat to the very existence of the United States. He boldly speaks to bolster the troops!

The powerful testimony of changed FORMER-LGBTQIA+ Paul Darrow

This week we offer the powerful testimony of Paul Darrow, a victim of the Sexual Revolution whose transformed life has given hope to many entangled in same-sex attraction.

Paul moved to Manhattan immediately after graduating college and became an international fashion model, a pleasure-seeker, and an atheist. His former hedonistic life, glamorous career, and ties to high society have provided him with invaluable insight into today’s alternative lifestyles. But Jesus changed his life forever. Shortly after converting to Catholicism, Paul was surprised to find himself being filmed as a subject for the award-winning movie Desire of the Everlasting Hills, which won the JP2 Film Festival Award. Paul's conversion story is so powerful that he was invited to speak at the Angelicum in Rome, where he pleaded with Cardinals and other clergy to defend and propagate the teachings of the Catholic Church on homosexuality. That is where Dr J met him!

Paul has appeared on EWTN and is a frequent guest on talk radio from coast to coast. Whether giving presentations to high school and college students, priests, seminarians, penitentiary inmates or Catholic groups across the U.S. and in Europe, Paul shares his unusual testimony in order to be a living example that God’s grace is more powerful than even the greatest of human temptations.

Action Items

THE RUTH INSTITUTE RESISTANCE: Gender Ideology

This week's podcast is a "primer" in Gender Ideology by Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse. She spoke to a Catholic group of teens and their parents in Arizona last week, and after her talk, she took questions from the group. We thought it made a perfect introduction to the subject, including offering answers to those struggling with pressures from friends and the media on transgender issues.

We hope to produce many other "primers" on topics of critical import to the family, marriage, and children's rights. We kind of think of it as "Basic Training" in "resisting" the politically-correct world. As we say in the introduction:

Welcome to the Ruth Institute Resistance! Faith, love, and hope are being destroyed in the hearts of vulnerable people. Life and death are literally in the balance. This is your "basic training" in a war for societal sanity.

In these basic training episodes, Dr. Morse will dispel politically-correct confusion, expose lies, and reveal freedom-giving truth.

The Ruth Institute is building a coalition to defend marriage and the family, stand up for children's rights, support victims of the Sexual Revolution, and facilitate a civilization of love. JOIN THE RUTH INSTITUTE RESISTANCE.
