"The Best Catholic Priest Rapper"

These words were used to describe Fr. Stan Fortuna, who is going to make an appearance at an event my diocese is hosting for the youth.

I know nothing of Fr. Fortuna, but I was struck by the description.

Isn't this akin to crediting Freddie Mercury with being the greatest gay Zoroastrian rock star of all time?

Fr. Stan lead two retreats at my high school in Arlington, VA back in 1999 and 1998 and I was fortunate enough to be there. His style is pretty unorthodox, but he's all about staying true to the Church. He also has a great gift for preaching the gospel in a way that many pastors either don't understand (that is, how to preach effectively) or seem too bored to do. He's a good guy, trust me!
