Hoverboards are infiltrating society in nearly every way imaginable. Kids are riding them around neighborhoods in large groups, celebrities are trying to bring them on airplanes, and now priests are using them in churches.
During the holidays last week, a priest in the Philippines was filmed riding a hoverboard down the aisle during mass while singing a song to his congregation.
After the video garnered millions of views on Facebook, The Diocese of San Pablo issued a statement condemning the priest's "wrong" behavior.
“That was wrong,” the Diocese of San Pablo, Laguna said in a statement. "The Eucharist demands utmost respect and reverence. It is the Memorial of the Lord’s Sacrifice. It is the source and summit of Christian life. It is the Church’s highest form of worship. Consequently, it is not a personal celebration where one can capriciously introduce something to get the attention of the people.”
The diocese said the priest has been temporarily removed from the parish to "reflect on this past event," which was described as "going around the nave standing on a hoverboard."
