In this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we tune in to the Drew Mariani Show on Relevant Radio.
Here Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D speaks on the decline of marriage and the abysmal fertility rates of American culture, even amongst conservatives.
Father Sullins explains marriage is a pre-governmental, transcendent institution being founded in the Garden of Eden. Yet, despite this glorious aspect, it has suffered major blows within the past 7 decades.
As he highlights in this podcast, inhumanity amongst young people has advanced to its heights, and this is largely because of advanced technology and social media. This inhumanity has led to the decline of young persons meeting and marrying each other.
This phenomenon also operates concurrently with what sociologists call the Advanced Specialization of Modernity: that all of the functions in society that used to be grouped together have been differentiated and parceled out from each other.
All of the goods and functions of marriage have come to operate independently from the institution itself.
Formerly, in marriage, men and women sought companionship, sex-relations, children, financial security, etc. They would buy a home together, they would plan a life together.
Those are all now things that young men and women do independently of marriage.
Yet, Father Sullins doesn’t leave it there. He emphasizes that another big factor in the decline of marriage was the decline of religion which has become empty and de-resonated.

Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, founder of the Ruth Institute, in this episode takes us to Wichita, Kansas, to the Eighth Day Institute Conference. Here she delivers a powerful talk that describes how pedophilia became key to the Sexual Revolution.
She speaks of how the destruction of the family was central to the Sexual Revolution succeeding. She explains that many early proponents of the Sexual Revolution advocated for children to have active sex lives and thus had to redefine childhood.

Understanding the Sexual Revolution – Eighth Day Books Institute, Wichita, Kansas – Jan 14, 2022
In this episode of the Ruth Institute podcast, Dr. Morse explains the mission and goal of the Ruth Institute. She is here heard giving her talk titled, “Understanding the Sexual Revolution”. Dr. Morse gave this talk at the Eighth Day Books Conference in Wichita, Kansas.
She explains that the Church’s traditional teachings on the moral law can be defended at the highest levels. She teaches a core principle that all advocates of the family must defend, namely, that every child needs his or her father and mother in the home married to each other, excepting, of course, for an unavoidable tragedy.
Hear Dr. Morse talk about hot button topics like Feminism, Gender Ideology, and Sex-Ed for children. She explains the contraception explosion of the 20th century and asks the question whether the Birth Control Pill really changed the culture or was it the persons promoting it?
She offers practical advice for those who wish to defend the Truth. Listen to hear for yourself.
