Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and president of the Ruth Institute, recently predicted nationwide marriage equality by next year.

The Ruth Institute and its parent organization, the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), parted ways last November.

Morse, also known as Dr. J., joined NOM in 2008 as a spokesperson. She later served in a senior role with NOM's Marriage Education Fund.

Speaking to attendees of the National Catholic Singles Conference, which took place earlier this month in San Diego, Morse said the fight against allowing gay couples to marry was “over.”

“We're here in 2014 talking about the redefinition of marriage,” Morse said. “I'm just going to go on the record here and forecast by this time next year it will be over. As a legal matter it will be over. There will be same-sex genderless marriage in every state in the union. If anybody's here from Texas, I'm sorry. You're not going to be able to hold out. This is what's going to happen.”
