Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution (July 17-18) Will Be an Historic Event

Posted on Thursday, July 16, 2020

"Despite the rapidly changing COVID landscape here in Louisiana, we’re pleased to announce that the Ruth Institute’s 2020 Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution will take place as planned, tomorrow, July 17 – with an awards banquet in the evening-- and Saturday, July 18, in Lake Charles,” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., president of the Ruth Institute.

The Summit will be a hybrid event with both in-person participation and live-streaming. It will present an analysis of the many ways the Sexual Revolution attacks both the individual and the family, and will include the testimony of survivors.

Morse explained: “The Sexual Revolution has brought in its wake a host of pathologies and addictions. We’ll be looking at some of the most destructive of these.”

Presentations and panels will include:


  • Surviving Childhood Sexual Abuse – The future of health and the family depends on ending it. No one will do this but us! Presented by Dr. Morse and Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D.
  • Pornography as a Public Health Crisis – “Protecting Young Eyes: Tools for Parents and Other Educators” presented by Melea Stephens (marriage and family therapist) and Chris McKenna (youth minister).
  • Surviving the LGBT Subculture: Medical Issues – includes health risks associated with common sexual activity among same-sex partners as well as through understanding medical issues involved in so-called “gender affirmation medical treatments,” presented by Dr. Michelle Cretella, MD.
  • Reporting on the Transgender Movement -- a report from the front lines, including stories from parents of gender-confused children, “resisters” (individuals who lived as the opposite sex and stopped), resistance within the medical profession and surprising new allies, presented by journalist Brandon Showalter.

The program will also include activists’ panels, question and answer sessions and general discussions.

Among the participants on the Surviving the LGBT Subculture panel is Doug Mainwaring, a journalist, and Luis Ruiz, who survived the Pulse Nightclub shootings. Both left the LGBT subculture.

“This will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear both expert analysis and first-hand testimony on the trauma inflicted by the Sexual Revolution,” Morse said. “The emphasis will be on healing.”
