I'd be embarrassed...

Rappin' for Jesus. (I know - This is something you would expect to read in some dorky Diocesan Newspaper.)
"Thanks to the initiative of Conventual Franciscan Father Masseo Gonzales, the teens have discovered rap from the Catholic perspective.

Two months ago the priest, known as “El Padrecito” from the collection of “Homies” his brother developed and marketed in books, comic strips and plastic figures, decided to create Hiz-Kidz, a group of 20 young people between 14 and 19 years old. The title comes from urban slang. “It is a game of words,” said Father Gonzales. “’Hiz’ means both God and Hispanics.”" - Catholic Online
So anyway...it's like Fr. Stan Fortuna - it just isn't cool - unless you are between the ages of 5 and maybe 10 years old.

    Who gave you the right to judge these people who are simply trying to make a difference, encourage young people and bring them closer to God? Who are you to comment on "cool" when that certainly isn't their goal? It's not a superficial thing; if you listen to the words and understand the motivation, then maybe you might recognize that they're doing this out of love for Christ and for others. As you've said, "Try getting out more." Step out of your little, narrow-minded world.
