hoverboarding priestWhile the “hoverboards” we are seeing today is definitely not the hoverboards we have expected, they are gaining a ton of popularity. However as quickly as they rose to fame, it seems that there are many places in the world where they are just as quickly banned, such as in New York City, over in Australia, and seems some colleges have started to ban it as well.

As it turns out, it seems that the Church isn’t a very big fan of the hoverboard either because they have recently suspended a priest for riding a hoverboard up and down the aisle during mass while singing a song to his congregation. This was confirmed by The Diocese of San Pablo, Laguna in a statement posted on Facebook.

According to the 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 statement adds, “He will be out of the parish and will spend some time to reflect on this past event.” It looks like the places where we are allowed to ride hoverboards just got a bit smaller. In the meantime if you’d like to see the video of the hoverboarding priest, head on over to Facebook for the video.
