Step Up 777: The Devout
Back in April, at a fundraiser for the Pontifical North American College in Rome, Rev. David Rider of Hyde Park, NY decided to liven up the event with a little bit of tap.
Rev. John Gibson of Milwaukee, WI saw Rider tearing up the floor and thought, "Oh,
H ell heavens no."
Gibson took the stage waving his arms, shoeing away Rider and his steel-soled shoes so he could have some room to show him how they do it back in the Irish homeland.
As far as Rider was concerned, this wasn't over by a long shot. And thus was born the most badass priest-on-priest dance battle this side of purgatory.
Things really don't get going until about a minute in...
According to the Associated Press, many commenters chastised the holy men for dancing underneath a crucifix, to which Rider replied, "We would just refer them to the Bible, where the Lord tells us to live with joy."
