Unhand me, Sir!

Bishop Foys has stepped up and told his people that the handholding during Mass is not cool.  There will be pouting but I suspect a lot of people will be quietly relieved. I'm a shy person and being grabbed by sweaty, sneezy, clammy or sticky(!) strangers is highly offensive. Unless you are my husband, my best friend or we are blood kin I really don't want to hold your hand. Period.

Hooray for him!
Thanks to you!

I simply will not attend a church that does the hand holding thing with zeal. You know - the kind of church that makes you feel like a zombie if you don't want to hold hands.

It now goes so far as having a choice of a militantly hand-holding church and not attending Mass at all - not attending Mass wins out.
