Father Jakub Bartczak, a hiphop musician-turned-priest, has released a
video promoting Christian values. "I realise some church-goers may think
such music is inappropriate, but every method of evangelisation is good if
it reaches young people," he told TVP. Before becoming a priest Bartczak
had been hiphop artist in Wroclaw known by the nickname Mane. Currently he
serves as a vicar at Wrocław's St Lawrence parish.

Unfortunately, he has forgotten that the devil has all the best tunes.

Which is why Slayer still rules and Stryper always sucked :D

If he was Christian he wouldn't have become a Roman Catholic Religious Cleric. Roman Catholicism is an Ancient Belief System that precedes Christianity. It should have died out a long time ago.

Catholicism is the original Christian faith from which the Eastern Orhtodox split off. All the later breakaway sects, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnersses, Mormons, etc. are the ones whose Chrsitianity may be questioned. But in this age of Ecumenism the challenge posed by the dissolute, hedonistic and hopelessly materialsitic world is drawing them all together.

The Orthodox often say the opposite is true.

I would say that the Jerusalemite church were the original Christian faith from which the Paulines separated.

A hip hop Priest shouldn't attract too much surprise - there's a long tradition (c.f. Vivaldi) of clergy being musicians.

DId you know that the world's first rock'n'roll mass was created in Poland in the 1960s and released on the Muza label. It was called 'Msza beatowa'. Early Polish rock'n'roll was known as 'Big Beat'.

Pure embarrassment for all involved. Nothing worse than a priest or any member of any religious mumbo-jumbo trying to be down with the kids.

OK, so what is your suggestion on how to reach them? Telling them that it's OK to smoke pot, badmouth their parents, shoplift (the big chains are insured after all!), vandalise property, smoke, drink, play truant and experience early sexual initiation?

Like watching your dad disco dance at a wedding. All adults should know that kids regard anyone over 25 as extremely uncool (unless they are famous).
