Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Hate Group
Notes: According to their about page “The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization creating a mass social movement to end family breakdown, by energizing the Survivors of the Sexual Revolution. We especially focus on the impact of family breakdown on children: understanding it, healing it, ending it.” The founder is Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse.
In review, the Ruth Institute is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The Ruth Institute was originally a project of the anti-LGBT National Organization for Marriage (NOM), created to conduct youth outreach, and to warn young people about the dangers of divorce, sexual promiscuity, and, especially, to recruit them in the fight to block the legalization of gay marriage. Essentially, the Ruth Institute is opposed to equal rights for gay and transgender persons. Overall, we rate them extreme right biased based on radical Catholic ideology as well as promoters of propaganda, conspiracies, and labeling as a hate group by the SPLC. (D. Van Zandt 3/10/2018)
