Good Riddance to Sam Brinton

And other dispatches from the front lines of the Sexual Revolution.

By The Ruth Institute Published on December 22, 2022

“Thank heavens the Department of Energy finally fired Sam Brinton. It’s about time,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “Pandering to the Alphabet Lobby is the only reason he was hired in the first place.”

The now former Deputy Asst. Secretary for Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition was caught on camera stealing luggage from two airport baggage claims: a Vera Bradley suitcase worth $2,325 from the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport in September, and luggage containing $3,500 in jewelry and clothing from the Harry Reid Airport in Las Vegas in July.

In Minneapolis, cameras showed Brinton taking the bag and ripping off the name tag. When questioned by police, he first claimed that he didn’t take the bag and then said he took it by mistake. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

When Brinton was appointed to his government position in February, the Ruth Institute raised concerns about his character. As a “non-binary” activist, Brinton spoke internationally, claiming he had been tortured during talk therapy, which aims to address unwanted same-sex attraction.

Susan Constantine, a body language expert and founder of the Human Behavior Lab, spoke about Brinton at the Ruth Institute’s 2021 Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution, and on the Dr. J Show.

Constantine and her team used a three-pronged approach of statement analysis, voice stress analysis, and behavioral analysis. They concluded that Brinton showed numerous signs of being “highly deceptive.” Constantine also noted multiple instances of “duping delight” — when a person takes pleasure in successfully deceiving someone.

“Good riddance to Sam Brinton,” Morse said. “The public has no interest in privileging activists for the Sexual Revolution, especially those who lie and steal. The Biden administration has become a jobs program for otherwise unemployable ‘sexual minorities.’”

New Movie Reveals the Truth About Transgenderism

The latest Dr. J Show features filmmaker, author, and speaker Don Johnson. He is the founder of Runaway Planet Pictures and has produced three feature-length documentaries: Convinced (2015) about atheists converting to Catholicism, Unprotected (2018) about the harms of the Sexual Revolution, and Dysconnected (2022) about the transgender movement.

Dysconnected follows the story of Daisy, who shared a video diary of her transition as a teenager, and who later, realizing her mistake, detransitioned. “There’s a wave of these girls coming out the other side of this,” Johnson says. “There’s a Reddit group of 40,000 detransitioners.”

Daisy’s story is incredible and has a happy surprise ending, Johnson hints, not wanting to spoil it. There are also activists and experts featured in the film, but not nearly as many as Johnson felt there ought to have been.

A lot of people he asked to interview agreed with his position but said, “‘No, I don’t want the pushback. I don’t want to be hated.’… It was almost impossible to get a therapist to come on record. The people who did are taking great risks, personally and professionally… . They’re so brave.”

Before he started this project, Johnson says, “I wasn’t as aware of just how dark, and insidious, and Satanic this whole thing is until you start peeling back the layers of what’s actually going on … . It is dark. It is evil when you get down into it. It’s a painful attack on the human person. It’s just so sad.”

“The stakes are very large here. It is a time in our culture though, where you have to speak up. I don’t think you can overestimate just how much the institutions have been overtaken by this and how strongly we’ve gotta fight back… . We are way, way too silent on this.”

Dysconnected is a fascinating, truth bomb of a documentary that all concerned, or just curious, citizens must watch. It’s time to get off the sidelines and do something to save children from ruining their lives.

Dr. Morse Joins Pro-Family Leaders in Warning of ‘Gender Identity’ Summit

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., joined a group of distinguished pro-family leaders in warning South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem of the dangers of an upcoming Gender Identity Summit in her state.

Morse stated, “The Ruth Institute is pleased to learn that Gov. Noem has cancelled the state’s contract with The Transformation Project, a radical trans activist organization. I join with other pro-family leaders in now calling her to speak out against the Midwest Gender Identity Summit and to investigate the use of taxpayer funds that promote the gender identity ideology.”

Please Support The Stream: Equipping Christians to Think Clearly About the Political, Economic, and Moral Issues of Our Day.

The letter expresses “grave concern” over a January 13, 2023, Midwest Gender Identity Summit in Sioux Falls, in which “Sanford Health [formerly a state contractor] is partnering with The Transformation Project, whose goal is to condone sex changes in children.”

The letter explains that the conference will “promote gender ideology, a belief system that severely undermines healthy mental and physical outcomes, especially in children.”

It notes that “under your direction, the State of South Dakota should be in the business of ensuring that health care providers live up to their ethical obligations to do no harm.”

The letter continues:

The Transformation Project promotes the lie that men can be women, boys can be girls, that some people are even ‘non-binary’ or ‘asexual.’ This ideology has inspired thousands of children to take puberty-blocking drugs and cross-sex hormones. It’s given cover for doctors to amputate healthy body parts even of minors and to fashion nonfunctioning replicas of sex organs.

The letter concludes:

Respectfully, we are asking you use your leadership to speak out against the misguided agenda of this summit and urge President and CEO Bill Gassen to disassociate Sanford Health and its employees from this event. Any benefit of professional credit will only serve to advance its radical philosophy and harm children and families.

Morse added:

Gov. Noem has always been a strong advocate of family values. I’m sure that now that the matter has been brought to her attention in a thoughtful manner, she’ll warn citizens of South Dakota of the harm caused by such events.

Besides Morse, signers include Penny Young Nance (President, Concerned Women for America), Tony Perkins (President, Family Research Council), and Ryan Anderson (President, Ethics and Public Policy Center).

Dr. Morse Speaks at Pro-Family Conference in Poland

On December 12, Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., addressed the “Family in Time of Change” conference in Krakow, Poland, on “Understanding and Combatting the Global Sexual Revolution.”

The two-day event, attended by more than 30 Polish mayors and other officials, was sponsored by the Auxilium Foundation, a network of 100+ therapists who provide counseling for families and operate an emergency hotline.

The Auxilium Foundation’s aim for the conference was to “create a platform for the exchange of knowledge and experience by scientists, practitioners and, above all, family members from different parts of the world.”

Morse said, “This conference was an inspiring gathering at a location deeply steeped in the legacy of Pope St. John Paul II. I am confident that the people of Poland will carry his dedication to strengthening the family forward to the next generation.”

Other speakers included Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz of the Archdiocese of Krakow, Marlena Malag (Minister of Family and Social policy in the Polish government), Fr. Robert Sirico (Founder and Honorary President of the Acton Institute), Solene Tadie (EWTN News), Priscilla Kulczyk (European Centre for Law and Justice, France), Prof. Francisco Jose Contreras (Dept. of Philosophy of Law, University of Seville, Spain) and Marcin M. Rzegocki, Ph.D. (Managing Dir., Auxilium Foundation).

The Ruth Institute is expanding its involvement with the international pro-family movement. Last month, Morse addressed the “Demography and Culture of Relationships Conference” in Budapest, Hungary.

In March, Ruth Institute Communications Director Don Feder spoke at the “International Summit of Pro-Life and Pro-Family Organizations” in Guatemala City on “Demographic Winter: The Fatal Fall of Fertility Worldwide.”

In February, Morse will be speaking at Family Life International’s Pro-Life and Pro-Life Family Conference in New Zealand.
