LA Dodgers Honor Anti-Catholic Hate Group
Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., blasted the Los Angeles Dodgers for announcing plans to present an award to an anti-Catholic group.
The L.A. chapter of Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will receive a “Community Hero Award” from the baseball team at its annual L.A. Pride Night on June 16. “This is outrageous,” Morse said. “Members of this group dress in grotesque drag costumes meant to mock nuns and the Catholic Church.”
“The Dodgers would never ally themselves with a group attacking any other religion. Imagine them presenting an award to white supremacists or antisemites. Only Catholics are considered legitimate targets for abuse.”
“Organizations that advocate abortion, same-sex marriage and ‘transgenderism’ attacking Catholicism is hardly surprising. When you’re in the forefront of defending morality and the family, it’s to be expected.”
“This is my faith, but Catholics aren’t the only ones concerned. The Ruth Institute staff includes Latter Day Saints, an Orthodox priest and a Jew. Our coalition includes Protestants across the denominational spectrum. We forge an alliance in defense of the family. We are all affected by attacks on morality and Christianity.”

“The tragedy here is that something as all-American as baseball is allowing itself to be corrupted by the Sexual Revolution. Even Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL, sent a letter to Major League Baseball’s Commissioner Rob Manfred calling out this lack of inclusivity for Christians, from a past-time meant to be enjoyed by all.”
“Apparently, the Dodgers learned nothing from Bud Light’s colossal ‘transgender influencer’ ad campaign fail. Consumers and fans resent attempts to force-feed them LGBTQ propaganda. The Dodgers need to wake-up and smell the beer.”
Update: Since this release, the Dodgers have decided not to honor this group and apologized to Catholics. Still, they should’ve known better in the first place.
Second Update: Never mind. The LGBTQMYNAMEISLEGION lobby is so marginalized and oppressed, that it flexed its muscles and within days the Dodgers apologized for their apology to Catholics, and reinvited the group.
Cyberattacked for Truth
Dr. Jill Simons is the Executive Director of the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds). In this Dr. J Show interview, she shares what her organization does to protect children and how that led to a relentless cyberattack.
“This was coordinated on many fronts,” Dr. Simons said, “and was meant to intimidate and incapacitate us. It has not silenced us. It has not intimidated us. It’s done quite the opposite. We have received tremendous support… We are stronger than ever.”
“We will continue to promote the health and well-being of children by protecting the rights of born and preborn children, promoting biological integrity, and defending conscience rights for healthcare professionals.”
“The reason we were hacked is they can’t debate us. They can’t argue the medical science, the facts, the research, even common sense. They can’t beat us, so this is what they do. They feel they need to silence us. So, in a way it’s showing how important our voice is.”
Watch this video to learn how the American College of Pediatricians was formed by members of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), who could see that AAP was “drifting away from the medical research and the science and becoming more of a political organization.”
“There is a huge silent majority out there of pediatricians… trying to speak out against some of [AAP’s] policies on so-called gender-affirming care for children, on pro-life issues, and they are being silenced.”
“Many good, well-intended pediatricians are afraid to speak out because of things that happened to us or they would lose their jobs… I encourage those people to not be silent, to speak out because more of us are. There’s strength in numbers, and we welcome you. And we will help you.”

Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse Withdraws from “Hope is Fuel” Conference
Statement from Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse regarding the “Hope is Fuel” conference.
I regret to announce that I am withdrawing from participation in the Hope is Fuel conference, sponsored by Patrick Coffin. I’d like to make clear exactly why I am making this decision. For those of you who do not know me, I am Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and president of the Ruth Institute, an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love.
When Patrick approached me to participate, I told him that I did not agree with his position on the resignation of Pope Benedict. I have never said anything about this issue in public. Getting involved in this particular controversy would take me too far from the overall mission of the Ruth Institute. I explained to him that I may have to make a public statement distancing myself from him on this topic if it became an issue. We had a very cordial conversation. On this basis, I agreed to be part of the conference.
I recently learned that E. Michael Jones is one of the participants in the conference. Jones has authored several important books that I value. However, he has recently authored works that I consider anti-Semitic. I tried to read his work in this area. I put it down. I considered it poisonous.
Anti-Semitism carries a historical load that no other form of discrimination carries. People say that Jones’ work is well-researched and intelligent. That doesn’t make me feel any better about it. In my judgement, the world does not need anti-Semitism, especially from a Catholic.
