The United Pentecostal Church International is known for its “holiness standards,” which include rigid rules for appearance such as men must be clean-shaven, no facial hair and very conservative dress.

But the UPCI dress code is not what Rev. Ronald Oree Nation, 69, has to worry about now. The St. Louis UPCI Sunday school director was arrested for violating the criminal code, for allegedly engaging in sex acts within a public park, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The UPCI routinely judges others for not being “holy” enough and says Christians who accept the trinity and are not baptized according to their “oneness” creed are condemned to hell.

What about Rev. Nation? He may have looked holy, but apparently his behavior didn’t match his appearance.

UPCI officials said they were “shocked and saddened by the allegation” and that “appropriate action” would be taken. Reportedly the minister may “retire” soon.
