A Catholic priest in the Philippines has been suspended from the Diocese of San Pablo after members of the congregation complained that his hoverboarding around during Christmas Eve Mass was inappropriate, especially after they realized what all the money in the offering basket went to last week.
In its statement, the Diocese of San Pablo added, "The priest said that it was a wake up call for him; he acknowledged that his action was not right and promised that it will not happen again."
"He will be out of the parish and will spend some time to reflect on this past event. He would like to apologize for what happened," the diocese said.
There's a short clip video of the action after the jump, which includes the priest doing a double spin at the 10-second mark and earning himself some sweet applause. What was going through this guy's head? I mean, besides what would Jesus NOT do? Sadly, the congregation will never get to see the quadruple spin and figure eights he was working on for Easter Mass.
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to Ace, who agrees real priests learn how to use devil-sticks.
