Reclaiming the professions

A global interfaith coalition equipping Christians to defend the family and build a civilization of love is encouraging professionals to deal with the root of the nation's moral problems.

The Ruth Institute is sponsoring the fourth annual Summit on Survivors of the Sexual Revolution, an event designed to encourage professionals to reclaim their professions "for life and family."

According to Ruth Institute founder Dr. Jennifer Morse, an example of a vocation that has been corrupted by the sexual revolution is the medical profession, where changes started when the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in 1973.

"Very early after that, the medical profession -- doctors -- stopped taking the Hippocratic Oath," Dr. Morse notes. "That tells you right there you've got a big problem."

So after abortion was advanced, doctor-assisted suicide came next. That was followed by opposite-gender imitation surgery and so on.

The legal profession is another field that Dr. Morse says the sexual revolution has gravely implicated and corrupted.

"As we know, most of the sexual revolution came about through law, not just because there was some overwhelming grassroots demand for different things to happen," she recalls.

So under the guise of benefiting children, attorneys have made it possible for children to access abortion, contraception, and cross-sex hormones without their parents’ consent or knowledge.

This weekend's summit will challenge psychologists, social workers, educators, and others to reclaim their professions, and it can be live-streamed online or attended in-person in Lake Charlie, Louisiana.
