I have not really encountered much of Fr. Ripperger's videos, but I've always liked him because back in the day I bought his brilliant book The Science of Mental Health, a fascinating (but very academic, not necessarily really for popular reading unless you really want to do a deep dive, I remember he says so himself in the summary and introduction) Thomistic framing of psychology.  Unfortunately at one point in my life I was strapped for cash and sold it, but one day if I ever settle down it's definitely going to get a place in whatever home or office library I collect. 

He's a very smart guy, and I think genuine and devoted too.  Of course that doesn't mean everyone must agree with everything he ever says, but I definitely don't think ppl should be turned away from him on this point either; I certainly am not, although I have some disagreement on the topic.
