Hoverboarding Priest: Suspended by Church ... What Would Jesus Say? (VIDEO)

Hoverboarding is an unholy activity unbecoming a priest ... so says the diocese in the Philippines that benched him.

The priest conducted Christmas mass in the city of Binan while tooling around the church on his board. It didn't sit well with church officials.

Those closer to God said, "The Eucharist demands utmost respect and reverence. It is the Church's highest form of worship, not a personal celebration where one can capriciously introduce something to get attention."

The honchos in the diocese said they want to give the priest in question time to "reflect," calling it "a wake up call."
