Watch: Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse of NOM's Ruth Institute Spews Lies About Same-Sex Marriage to the RI Legislature


Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse of NOM's Ruth Institute recorded testimony a bunch of lies on same-sex marriage for the Rhode Island legislature. Hearings are scheduled for late today.

Morse, clad in the rainbow scarf she claimed late last year was the first salvo in a crusade to reclaim the rainbow from gay people, drops lie after lie about gay parents and children raised by gay couples in an effort to get her bigoted point across.


Also, bonus audio (via good as you) of Morse mocking the Human Rights Campaign's equality logo.

  1. what the hell is she talking about with the equal sign?

    Miss Thing needs to learn Marketing 101. IDIOT.

  2. And let's get it straight: she's a Ph.D doctor — in economics — not a medical degree one. That makes her "uniquely (un)qualified" to discuss interpersonal relations, gender identity, marketing or LGBT issues.

  3. Shouldn't this "doctor" be out there helping people, what happened to first do no harm?

  4. Wow. Her rhetoric is so illogical it's funny. How many married straight couples have children that are not biologically theirs?

    She can have our rainbow if she shoves it up her ass.

  6. Yet another hater!

    I have three sons, all adopted. Had my husband and I not adopted these boys...who would have taken care of them?

    Two of them spent more than half their life in foster care. When they arrived in our home they could not even do basic multiplications, divisions were terra incognita.

    Today one is applying to a prestigious private high school. The other is in therapy and being tutored to help him get caught up.

    The third is in college.

    They are happy, hard-working, caring and loving young Mrs Morse...I prove you wrong!

    Keep your hate away from my life!

  7. What the hell is she talking about ? Straights being able to get married has led to high divorce rates and kids being born out of wedlock. That has absolutely nothing to do with gays being allowed to get married.

  8. What is Dr.J's opinion about Maggie Gallagher Srivastav's getting knocked up at 22 and having her first child out of wedlock ?????

  9. How will preventing same sex couples from getting married help to reduce the 50% divorce rate and 40% out of wedlock child bearing?

    The majority of her arguments relate to parenting, but she fails to realize that having children is not a requirement of marriage or that gay couples are already raising children and will continue to do so regardless of whether or not gay marriage is legal.

    She says that it will be 30 years from now before we see the "damage" done by gay marriage, but she is too stupid to realize that gay couples have been raising children since at least 1980, so in theory we should already see that damage. My 27 year old nephew raised by my brother and his partner seems to be doing just fine.

    She is an idiot and tells so many lies in this video that it would take a book to call her out on each one.

  10. Is this a joke? She's looks like a drag queen.

  11. Arturo, how is project life vest going? I see the site is still on 2010 news? Hope you are still reaching out to kids in Georgia and Derrick Martin is doing well!

  12. This woman is so out of touch. I recently had a conversation with a with a straight man I know professionally. He asked about a woman we both know and told me that mutual friends had tried to set him up with her. I said, "that's not possible,she's married with a young child". "Oh, no", he said, "she's divorced. That's the way it is these days".

  13. This is clearly a case of a woman who is educated beyond her intelligence. Just because she uses grammar correctly and looks 'mainstream' this does not mean that anything she says is true. I don't know whether she is evil or stupid, but she is wrong in either case.

  14. Judging from her profile, I'd say girlfriend is a prime candidate for a Lifestyle Lift.

  15. I absolutely agree with her. Only biological parents should raise their children. If non biological parents raise children they might raise them to be the President (like 2 of the last 3 who where raised by at least one non-biological parent), one of the worlds most respected leaders, and a noble peace prize winner (like Nelson Mandela), or the CEO of one of the worlds most successful companies (like Apple's Steve Jobs). It's an outrage.

    And don't even get me started on that Jesus guy who was raised by Joseph even though they shared no biological connection.

    Stop these social experiments! ;-)

  16. uh...the Ruth Institute? But Ruth is the biblical figure who asked Naomi to be allowed to live with her forever. Strange.

  17. Isn't it astonishing what 5% of the populous can do to all of society? A few gay couples get married and our entire civilization will crumble in ruins. Seriously? I have (straight) relatives that live in Massachusetts. Some have gotten married within the past five years, even though gay couples can also marry. Shocking isn't it?

    As for her comment about four parents raising children. Heterosexuals are doing that right now. If a straight couple gets divorced, and each of them remarries, four parents will be involved in raising those children. What that has to do with gay parenting is anyone's guess. By the way, where exactly does Ms. Morse think those children came from, that gay couples are raising? They were most likely given away by straight mothers and fathers. The gay parents should be applauded for their efforts, not condemned. In my book, two loving parents (regardless of sexual orientation) are always better than none.

  18. So straight parents who adopt kids aren't REAL parents? She's loony toons! She looks like the Wicked Witch of the West.

  19. Nothing like "expert testimony" from a sanctimonious gas-bag spewing lies and threats.

    Posted by: jexer | Mar 10, 2011 1:54:40 PM

  20. She blow her entire argument all to hell in her first sentence. 50% divorce rate among heterosexual couples. 40% out of wedlock birth rate for...again, hetrosexual couples. Marriage already has been redefined.

    Second, marriage is no more about procreation than sex is aobut procreation. And it hasn't been since we were an agrarian society and more hands were needed to work the farm. Marriage is the union of two people to form a family. PLENTY of unwed people create families, gay and straight. Again, this idiot's argument is preposterous.

    Third, it's documented fact that children of same sex parents thrive as well IF NOT BETTER than opposite sex families. That's fact. She may not like it, she may not want it, but it's a fact.

    And lastly, isn't it telling she has a cross over her closet door.

  21. Since she is so stuck on accountability, can't someone sue her for spreading lies? Sure, we have free speech, but at what point do lies become damaging to the point where you can sue.

    I'm only half kidding.

  22. Funny thing is that she and her husband adopted a Romanian baby. I'll guess Absolutely Fabulous WASN'T the inspiration for her move. Oh and what of the link to biological parents she so vehemently defends in her "arguments" against same-sex couples having and raising children?

  23. "Mountains of data"? I don't even see a molehill.

  24. "They would gladly have rented them separate rooms, but that's not enough for the Thought Police."

    Blacks had perfectly good seats at the back of the bus, but that's not enough for the thought police.

  25. She needs to redefine that wart on the side of her face. When the video went to black and white I thought for sure the Witch had traveled back to Kansas.
