New rules: Ohio priests ban bear hugs, allow High Fives with kids

I loved this story for it’s strange approach to what I would call really inappropriate touching by priests.

AP-The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati has issued a detailed list of inappropriate behaviors for priests, saying they should not kiss, tickle or wrestle children.

NO KIDDING. But that’s not all.

The newest version of the archdiocese's Decree on Child Protection also prohibits bear hugs, lap-sitting and piggyback rides.

They need to be told this? Where’s the common sense. But what’s OK?

Priests may still shake children's hands, pat them on the back and give high-fives. The Cincinnati archdiocese says it updates the rules every five years.

I so glad we are now able to put these horrific molestations behind us.
