Our Ruth Institute Recipes for Peace campaign is winding down. I want to thank everyone who participated by posting cute family photos and survival tips for the holidays! I had a lot of fun, and I can tell that all of you did as well.
Let us remember that Jesus is the King of Peace. He allowed Himself to come to us as a child, in all the weakness and vulnerability of an infant. He allowed us to do our worst to Him, and still He loves us. He triumphed over our sins, and even death itself. All of this is foreshadowed in the modesty of his birth.
Have a very Merry and Blessed Christmas everyone, from all of us at the Ruth Institute!
1) PRAY for the Ruth Institute – for our safety and for the transformation of the hearts and minds of those we encounter.
2) FOLLOW us on Facebook and keep up with our activities.
3) PROMOTE the events and activities we are engaged in.
4) GIVE a one-time or monthly donation to help fuel our 2015 initiatives which include:
No time to read? Not a problem. Get this three-CD set, based on Dr. Morse’s best selling book of the same name and listen while you drive!
Dating is difficult, especially if you’re looking for a serious relationship and not just a casual hook-up. If you or someone you love is hoping to get married and stay married, get this CD set for yourself or as a Christmas gift for a friend. Find it here.
Do you prefer turning pages? We’ve got you covered. Get the book here.
Pst! There’s also a digital read-only version for only $4.99 here! But don’t tell anyone!
Head on over to iTunes or LibSyn to check out Ruth’s newest audio, The Gay Agenda in the Media, where Dr. J and Drew Mariani are discussing the ways homosexual activity is becoming more mainstream in television commercials and programming. (This is a rebroadcast of her interview yesterday on the The Drew Mariani Show.)
Do you support natural marriage, but don’t know how to explain why, especially without reaching for a Bible?
Let us make it easier for you! Read 77 Non-Religious Reasons to Support Man/Woman Marriage and/or simply have several copies on hand to give to people when the topic comes up.
For example: Reason 67 says, “Same s*x marriage separates children from at least one of their parents, not due to extraordinary circumstances, as arise in adoption, but as a routine procedure.”
This is a 10-panel, accordion-folded pamphlet. It’s easy to read and easy to mail to a friend in a standard-sized long envelope.
It is offered both as a paper pamphlet for $2.50 and as a digital “read only” download for only $1. You can find it here.
Dr. Morse is quoted in this article on the 6th Circuit Court’s upholding of natural marriage:
““It lays out some places where the Supreme Court is going to have to rule,” said Jennifer Roback Morse, founder of the Ruth Institute. Sutton, she noted, calls attention to the fact that the high court already ruled that marriage is a state, not a federal, issue, setting a binding precedent that has never been overturned.”
(BTW, this is a photo of Judge Sutton, whose carefully crafted opinion is giving us the opportunity to be heard at the US Supreme Court.)
Friday, November 7, 6 p.m.- Saturday, November 8, 9 p.m.
Join 200+ students and young adults from colleges and universities across the country in Princeton next weekend to learn from leading scholars and experts on marriage, the family, and sexuality. Housing is available for undergraduate students. Talks will include:
Recognize that most people are thinking of themselves most of the time. Seeing this about your spouse will save you a lot of disappointment. Seeing this about yourself will help you realize what your spouse has to put up with.
How many times have you launched into the intricacies of the all-consuming project your working on, only to take a breath and have your spouse change the subject to whatever all-consuming task he or she is working on? Then when your spouse pauses, you go back to talking about your thing, slightly annoyed that he or she changed the subject. But no matter how important and interesting you think your project is, the world still doesn’t revolve around you. If anything, it revolves around the two of you as a pair. Access your inner child, go back to kindergarten, and learn how to share.

The Most Reverend Joseph E. Kurtz
Archbishop of Louisville, Kentucky
Please consider the attached petition during the deliberations of the Synod on the Family. We are 1,700 individuals from across the United States and around the world. We come from diverse theological perspectives: we are Catholics, Protestants of many denominations, Latter Day Saints, Jews, and people of no faith at all. We are united in our appreciation of the Roman Catholic Church for its clarity about the great moral issues of our time.
We have no particular proposals to suggest. We only ask that the Synod Fathers remember the Victims of the Sexual Revolution. Whatever you decide to do, please, remember the millions of people who have been harmed by NOT following Catholic teaching.
We affirm: The ancient teaching of the Church has been right all along.
Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.
Founder and President,
The Ruth Institute
