While at the HLI Conference in Minneapolis in the spring of 1997 it was a great pleasure to meet and chat with Dr. Gerard J.M. van den Aardweg, Ph.D. Such a nice and educated man. He's a bit of a behavioral scientist and has the mind of a rapier.
Later that same year he published a book entitled The Battle For Normality (Ignatius Press, 1997). This book is a must for every adult Catholic. Buy it online for $10.16.
Just recently a kid I knew in high school contacted me. He now has a child and was wed in Toronto to another young man.
As I glanced at his family photos I could only think of the inner child of the past and psychic infantilism as well as gender identification and gender inferiority. Neurotic emotionality is now more and more common.
Catholics need to get smart and educate themselves on this subject. Buy this fine book here:
