Because?  We promote people to get high and say its ok.  We promote public indecency and say its ok.  What is wrong with a priest on a motorcycle compared to these?  I honestly don't understand the problem when compared to the others, so I am sincerely asking you to explain.  Probably better in a PM so we don't derail the thread too much.

There's no real topic in this thread, so we won't derail it too much.  :) 

I'm well aware of your fervent opinions on "getting high" and "public indecency" as expressed in other threads (as well as your emphatic disagreement with alternative opinions) but they really don't apply everywhere you think they do. 

My protest is not that a priest is riding a motorcycle: I've seen archpriests ride motorcycles in India wearing cassocks with red piping, jeweled pectoral cross, and kalimavkion.  That's really not a problem for me.   

But I can't imagine a situation in which it would be appropriate for a cleric to wear sacred vestments while riding a motorcycle.  Generally their use is restricted to liturgical rites conducted within the church.  Their use "outdoors" is quite restricted in just about every tradition I'm aware of.  Even in the church you're not "free", while you wear them, to conduct yourself as you might were you only wearing a cassock.  What was that priest doing while riding a motorcycle that required wearing a phelonion and epitrachelion?  The photo just looks strange and, barring some legitimate reason that would surprise the hell out of me, irreverent.       

I did a Google search on the image and found some info behind the photo.

Bikers take a dip in the holy spring in the village Gavrylivka Kemerovo (Siberia) region and consecrate their bikes through participation in the procession, which takes place on Saturday and Sunday, the press service of the Archdiocese of Kuzbass.

http://newsland.com/news/detail/id/1218478/

It will bring together more than 250 motorcyclists of the cities and the Siberian region of Kuzbass. The total distance is will be about 150 kilometers. Along the way bikers will attend church and participate in church services. The initiator of the unusual procession was the Rev. Alexander Ilyin. He sits behind the wheel of a motorcycle and leads column. Father Alexander is a member of the motorcycle club Kuzbass "Free Spirit"

^ Which one was that?

And how was it? I've always wondered how it was in Baha'i houses of worship.
The one in Willmette . It s I guess a much grander version of an upper class living room of Willmette  or winnetka , northen Chicago suburbs
The one in my area doubles as a gym of some sort.

Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

Okay, thank you.

I don't have any objection to motorcycles, priests riding motorcycles, motorcycle clubs, etc.  All of this sounds great.  But why the vestments?  It really doesn't make sense to me.

That's a good point. The nearby Baha'i are both just Centers.

According to Wiki:
Quote
The Houses of Worship are open to the public, and are exclusively reserved for worship, where sermons are prohibited and only scriptural texts may be read. Most Bahá'í meetings occur in local Bahá'í centres, individuals' homes, or rented facilities.[2] though local houses of worship are forthcoming.

So Houses of Worship = just public worship spaces. Baha'i Centers = local assemblies that, like some churches, will provide/rent/etc. other services.

Yeah, though their god sounds a bit like an apotheosis of early 20th century liberalism.

I handled a claim once very similar to that where a truck did that and hit power lines.  There was someone living in a trailer nearby and it literally pulled the electrical line and box right through the wall of the house/trailer and all the wires out of the sockets.  That was not a fun claim to handle.  :(

How do you know she's hot?  You can't even see her face.  I've made the mistake of assuming someone was hot just because it would seem so from a particular angle, but then you get a better look and then you want to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAp9sFVdERQ

I assumed it represented some sort of diving bird.

Using my magical Wikipedia skills, I found this explanation.

Quote
There is no sure and definite interpretation of the symbol; however, most historians agree that it most probably depicts a stylized falcon which according to the Slavic mythology was the Primary god (Pershoboh). In Christianity, a descending falcon, just as dove (with head downwards, as in case of Ukraine´s trident) also symbolizes the Holy Spirit. This is the most likely explanation, as the symbol appears during the years surrounding the Christianization, and is furthermore identical to modern representations of the descending falcon...
