LAKE CHARLES, Louisiana, July 19, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A gathering this weekend on the Louisiana Gulf Coast may soon prove to have been a turning point in the sexual revolution as experts and activists layed out strategies to win back the many professions that have been corrupted by decades of the sexual revolution’s anti-life, anti-marriage, anti-child, anti-gender and anti-Christian ideologies.
Hosted by the Ruth Institute, the 4th Annual Summit for the Survivors of the Sexual Revolution obliterated the foundation of lies upon which the sexual revolution has been built, dismantling it brick by brick, using facts and truth-telling.
“The sexual revolution is irrational. It’s impossible. It can’t stand on its own. It needs force. It needs propaganda. It is a totalitarian ideology that no Christian should have anything to do with,” said Jennifer Roback Morse, founder of the Ruth Institute at the outset of the two-day event.
Roback Morse explained that much of that force has come from professionals in education, medicine and therapy, law, journalism, library science, and even research science who have become agents of the sexual revolution, aiding in the undermining of the family, marriage, and the complementarity of man and woman.
The sexual revolution is the creation of the global ruling class and has always been promoted from the top-down, often with force and power of government, said Roback Morse.
“The state is complicit,” the author of The Sexual State noted, “and is sometimes the root cause.”
“The global ruling class, no matter how powerful it may be, cannot implement everything it needs to get done all by itself. They need the help and cooperation of competent, trained people, namely, people in the professions,” she continued.
The point of this summit is “to identify the ways in which we can stop doing their work and make it harder, not easier, for them” to achieve their goals.
In 2019, LifePetitions launched a similar petition on behalf of Jeff Younger (the father) and his son James, asking for support and for the Texas state authorities to intervene in a unbelievable case in which the Dallas courts keep flip-flopping over which parent has parental rights and, ultimately, whether or not James must be forced to live as a girl and suffer the trauma of so-called gender "transitioning," as his mom believes he is a girl.
Incredibly, we now seem to be back at square one.
Jeff Younger currently has a gag order put on him, which prohibits him to speak out in defense of his son. But, because he has recently decided to ignore that order, to save his son from irreversible surgery, this brave Dad now faces possible arrest.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which does two things: 1) Supports Jeff Younger (again, the Dad) in his fight to save his son, James, from so-called gender "transitioning;" and, 2) Calls on Texas' Attorney General to intervene in this case and quash the gag order against Mr. Younger.
CLICK HERE to WATCH the latest LifeSite interview with Jeff Younger. Hear about the latest developments with his son, as well as the real dangers of gender reassignment surgery and other “transititioning” methods.
Currently, even though he shares 50/50 parental rights to James, which has allowed him to stop the chemical castration of his son, Jeff’s ex-wife recently sued to have full parental rights and to "give her sole medical and psychological decision making."
Jeff is also being threatened with jail time from the gag order, which he believes was intentionally done to stop him from helping pass legislation in Texas to ban sex-change surgeries for minors.
Jeff says that the gag order "prohibits me from speaking on all manner of political topics. And I’m not even allowed to tell you in that gag order whether my son’s a boy or girl."
But Jeff is speaking out, no matter what, because of the real danger that his son is in if he undergoes "transition" surgery.
Indeed, so-called gender "transitions" present many unsafe effects, some desired, some undesired, though all dangerous for one's physical and mental health.
Puberty-blocking drugs and cross-sex hormones have not been proven safe. For example, the FDA has NOT approved Lupron and GnRH analogues for use in blocking puberty.
Risks associated with these pharmaceuticals include: low bone density, high blood pressure, weight gain, abnormal glucose tolerance, breast cancer, liver disease, thrombosis, and cardiovascular disease.
And, additional risks and potential harms include:
For Males: Stunting of penile and testicular growth, sexual dysfunction, prevention of spermatogenesis, and disruption of normal brain and bone development.
For Females: A menopause-like state, blockade of normal breast development, decreased blood flow to vagina and vulva, sexual dysfunction, thinning of vaginal epithelium, vaginal atrophy, prevention of menses/ovulation, and disruption of normal brain and bone development.
In other words, these medications can sterilize and cause medical harm to vulnerable, confused children.
And, the stunning part about this: studies show that 85% of gender confused children eventually become comfortable with the sex of their bodies.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which supports Jeff Younger, a Texas Dad, who is fighting to prevent his son, James, from being "turned into a girl." At the same time, we appeal to Texas State Attorney General, to intervene in this case and quash the gag order against Jeff.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE DANGERS OF PUSHING GENDER IDEOLOGY ON CHILDREN:
Many eminent psychiatrists are now speaking against the faulty notion that sex is fluid and a matter of choice. In particular, they are concerned about the welfare of children and young people in this regard.
Dr Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins University, who has researched the occurrence of gender dysphoria for 40 years, has stated that the notion of gender fluidity "is doing much damage to families, adolescents, and children and should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation wherever it emerges". [See more below.]
And, the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) is definite about the promotion of transgenderism as being harmful public policy:
"Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: 'XY' and 'XX' are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived, either male or female…Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse. Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents…” [Read more below.]

About some of the unconscionable practices some medical professionals are engaged in:
Politicized science is propaganda, fraught with lies
“We are in an age of falsehood,” observed Fr. Paul Sullins, former professor of sociology at the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C., and currently a senior research associate at the Ruth Institute.
“It is not just in journalism or popular media that the news has become fake,” said Sullins. “Science itself has become politicized, with well-connected and influential groups working to suppress evidence they don’t like and promote false conclusions that serve their purposes.”
“I encourage you not to believe or accept the falsehoods of today’s politicized science, but also, more importantly, to speak the truth in any way you can,” urged Sullins, who used charts to show how research is manipulated to affect change in public opinion and policy.
Renowned human behavior expert Susan Constantine demonstrated how some tear-jerking, pro-LGBT testimonials have been fabricated, and retired psychologist Laura Haynes showed that assertions made by medical and therapeutic professionals are often demonstrably false, employing lies to silence reasoned opposition and advance the cause of the revolution.
In a presentation that revealed the power that the abortion industry has wielded to cultivate future clientele through public schools, Sharon Slater, president of Family Watch International and the chair of the U.N. Family Rights Caucus, asked, “What kind of an organization would show sexually graphic images to children under the guise of sex education” and “profits from sexualizing children and selling: condoms, abortion, hormones, contraceptives, comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) programs, and sexual counseling?”
“Meet the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF),” said Slater. “They’re after the hearts and minds of our children.” The IPPF plays a crucial role in many major U.N. programs aimed at children.
A panel of three doctors — Dr. Michael Parker, representative from the Catholic Medical Association; Dr. Quentin Van Meter, president of the American College of Pediatricians; and Dr. Donna Harrison, executive director of the American Association of Pro-Life Ob-GYNs – talked about how they were forced to form or join alternative medical associations after realizing that mainstream professional societies, including the once-venerable American Medical Association (AMA), which have been compromised by the sexual revolution.
Many professions have a fiscal interest in advancing the Sexual Revolution and maintaining its foundational falsehoods as true and so have no interest standing against it.
Family lawyers, family law courts, and social workers owe their livelihoods to our robust divorce culture; abortion is a thriving, multi-billion dollar industry employing medical professionals who profit from our throwaway culture; sexually active homosexuals depend on drug manufacturers in order to maintain some semblance of health; and the transgender contagion among young people now promises ever-increasing future prosperity for gender-affirming doctors and pharmaceutical corporations who produce the drugs and hormones required to for individuals to both transition and de-transition. Big Pharma wins either way.
Watch your language
Many of the speakers cautioned that the use of now-commonly used terms introduced by sexual revolutionary forces often constitutes a capitulation to those forces.
“Revolutionaries are very good at crafting language,” said Roback Morse. “Some of these ideological words have a whole ideology baked into them.”
“Unwanted pregnancy,” “unplanned pregnancy,” “family planning,” and “born that way” are terms that have been crafted “to achieve a particular ideological objective,” said Roback Morse. “It is almost never in your interest to use those words, so you’ve got to think carefully about what you want to say.”
Roback Morse said that she learned by experience not to use the term “same-sex marriage” because there’s no such thing. It’s not marriage: It’s a legal innovation removing the gender requirement for marriage. “Every time I say ‘same-sex marriage,’ I’m carrying water for the other [side].”
“There are certain words which are live hand grenades that have been rolled onto the field by your opponent. If you pick it up, you’re going to die,” she warned. “Don't pick it up. Let it sit there.”
