I think being Catholic is awesome.
However, I don't like this attempt to re-cast Catholicism as something cool.
Catholicism is not contemporary. It's not fashionable. It's not hip.
I don't think we have to be high-brow and august about it all the time.
But I think calling ourselves cool appeals to a certain fashion-minded worldliness that is unbecoming to the faith.
Catholicism is cool if by "cool" you mean that it inspires wonder.
But "cool" is a word that speaks to a certain superficiality. Things are cool one year, and passé the next.
Let's not be cool.
Let's just be ourselves.
