"...the company of the clueless..."

From the First Things blog (second item at the link), an extended excerpt from an unamed blogger complaining that his religious conservatism makes him feel uncool. Fr. Neuhaus has a wise reply:

Exclusion from the charmed circle of the cool is, in this way of looking at things, the price he pays for his Christian and conservative convictions. To be derided by the fashionably ignorant is no price at all. To be concerned about the other guy’s thoughtlessness is a mark of friendship. To envy his association with the company of the clueless is a mark of poignant insecurity.
