or homosexual behavior?

or others you love?
The sexual revolution promised to give people greater freedom and joy in their
sex lives; but has resulted in record levels of sexually transmitted diseases, the legitimization and spread of
pornography, greater hostility between the sexes, and critically high divorce and illegitimacy rates. Sexual Wisdom offers
a way to redirect this revolution and to bring relief to a sexually challenged culture.

Pope Benedict XVI discussed the primary theme of Sexual Wisdom during World Youth Day 2008
in Australia. Referring to the "other god" of possessive love he said:
"Authentic love is obviously something good. Without it, life would hardly
be worth living. It fulfills our deepest need, and when we love, we become most fully ourselves, most fully human.
But how easily it can be made into a false god! People often think they are being loving when actually they are
being possessive or manipulative. People sometimes treat others as objects to satisfy their own needs rather than
as persons to be loved and cherished. How easy it is to be deceived by the many voices in our society that advocate
a permissive approach to sexuality, without regard for modesty, self-respect or the moral values that bring quality
to human relationships! This is worship of a false god. Instead of bringing life, it brings death."
Here is what cultural and religious leaders
are saying about Sexual Wisdom:
Wisdom is clear, well documented, and should be useful for
everybody, from parents to educators, priests, and young adults.
- Alfonso Cardinal Lopez Trujillo
President of the Pontifical Council for the Family, Vatican City
Wisdom is a wonderful resource for all persons seeking answers
to questions about human sexuality. The text is organized, well researched, documented and thought provoking. Each
chapter is a combination of scientific fact, common sense and moral value adeptly expressed in ordinary language."
- John Cardinal O'Connor
Archbishop of New York
Wisdom is refreshing and valuable in its scientific yet compassionate,
no non-sense approach to a wide range of contemporary issues involving physical intimacy."
- Michael Medved
film critic and author of Hollywood vs. America
Wisdom is a
terrific, fresh, masculine professional approach to the problems of sexual morality of our times. Could reach people
who would not listen to anything less authoritative, factual, and well-written."
- Ronda Chervin
author of Woman to Woman
