You may remember the professionally anti-gay Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse (dramatically pic, left) from recent comments given to Focus on the Family in which she brazenly declared that same-sex unions have "nothing to do with the needs of children and nothing to do with lifelong married love." Now Dr. Morse is taking those unfortunate views and putting them under the NOM umbrella (which we hear is good at weathering "Gathering Storms), as she works to convince younger generations that residual Baby Boomer biases are in need of a resurgence:
Princeton, NJ – The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) announces that effective this month, The Ruth Institute, founded by San Diego author Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, will be moving under the auspices of the National Organization for Marriage.
“Working with NOM, we plan to expand our outreach to next generation leaders,” said Dr. Morse. “Making a happy marriage begins with the decisions students make now about what they believe and how they express it.”
“NOM’s mission is protecting marriage and the faith communities that sustain it. The Ruth Institute’s mission is transmitting a healthy culture of marriage and family to the next generation of leaders. It’s a great fit,” said Maggie Gallagher, president of NOM. “We aren’t giving up on the next generation when it comes to marriage, and we’re happy that Dr. Morse is going to help us win this fight.”

Because seriously, when is the "next generation" not thinking about hurting gay people via unnecessary civil bias? Seriously, it's like they watch "The Hills" -- then go off and draft a marriage inequality bill. Peep the New Moon trailer -- then concoct new and different ways to bring gay rights to their own twilight. Eat some Pinkberry -- swallow some anti-gay rhetoric. Despite all of the remarkable progress that they've seen in their time, this is a new youth generation that will be defined by three things: shiny Apple products, Twitter, and the Defense of Marriage Act.
Zac Efron? Schyea, right! It's Dr. Dobson that these youngsters pin up on their walls.
"American Idol"? Uhm yea, no -- this new crop is all about Idling America with stale ideas about who is and is not an equal citizen.
And as for soft drinks? Well Pepsi may have been the choice of a previous "next generation," but for this new crop it's all about drinking the anti-gay Kool-Aid.
You are right on the money with this bet, NOM! It's just a shame for you that every last thing we just said is as comically ridiculous as is the notion that the phrase "injecting discrimination" can be accurately replaced with "protecting marriage."
I'm convinced itt all started when some middle school kids taunted "Faggy Maggie" and she said, "I'll show them."

“We aren’t giving up on the next generation.."
Sounds pretty concessionary to me. When MSNBC walks away with the under 35 audience, and the opinion polls overwhelmingly indicate that that demographic is tired of the lying liars' lies, it does make sense that they would finally wise up and realize that they are losing. But, that they equate berating, cajoling and otherwise coercing the "next generation" into adherence to "help us win this FIGHT" is really an indictment of the tactics used by those ends-justify-the-means lying liars.

I didnt notice in the article any mention of what kind of Dr. she is. Jennifer Morse has a phd in economics and taught economics for many years. This hardly makes her an expert in anything that has to do with psychology or homosexuality. The very best she can do is express her personal opinion as just another homophobic citizen
