Should the Catholic priest be suspended after giving a sermon on a hoverboard? I understand this priest was going up and down the aisles on Christmas Eve Mass on a hoverboard. This priest has been suspended from his duties. One person who says he no longer attends mass says if there were more priests like this one, I may be tempted to return to mass. If people keep calling for traditions, you will lose even the most ardent Catholics. Then on the other side one person said it was complete and total disrespect not only for the Lord but also for the salvation of all those poor souls. There is a lot of controversy over this. Wonder what will happen next.

I see nothing wrong with it, tho it is controversial. At least he is getting around and it might be easier for him lolz

I might even think of going back to the church if I had a priest like him who doesn't act like he comes from another century.@TiarasOceanView

@TiarasOceanView The Catholic Church could use more priests like him that show people they are human and know how to have fun.

I am not religious like at all. But I still don't see this as offensive or anything. I think it would be fun. I don't see how this is a problem. People can be so darn uptight I swear.

I have read the news this happened in the Philippines. I do not know if the Priest had to be suspended, but surely did a stupid thing.

Yes you are correct he was in the Phillippines and I think it is acceptable and I would not mind going back to church if I had a priest like him to talk with. @LadyDuck

@Marcyaz If he is a Roman Catholic Priest, this act is considered offensive. The Catholic songs need respect and reverence. As all Roman Catholics know, he should also know. The laws (even religious laws) are made to be respected, no matter if they are right or wrong.

@LadyDuck If he is a Roman Catholic Priest which I suspect he is I don't see why he can't be human like everyone else and I have to admire him for his action.

it is OK from the one side, but, however, a priest should give an example of his faith in every action. Moreover, i think it is right for real church-attenders to come to church only by foot regardless of the distance. I do so. But the church isn't far from me of course. I might have changed my opinion if i had lived far from it.

@TypicalRussian I don't understand how he is not giving an example of his faith, he is after all a human being like us.

I think suspension is going overboard for this priest. Personally I probably would have enjoyed his sermon and smiled that he was able to deliver Gods word while managing to stay upright on that hoverboard. I think the church has more to worry about than hoverboards and their priests

I don't feel suspension is proper for this priest as he sounds like a priest a lot of people would enjoy. The church does have more to worry about then hoverboards. No wonder they have lost so many people who no longer want to attend Mass. @Marilynda1225
