Now They Want to Ban… the Handshake

Image result for images of handshake ban

This is the latest thing sweeping the business world: banning the handshake (

It’s not totally irrational. The idea is to “ban all forms of physical contact to avoid confusion about what kind of touch is appropriate”–because that’s how you wind up with some #MeToo nut filing a sexual harassment lawsuit. Those can be expensive. So you just ban all contact whatsoever, and you’re covered.

Until they come at you for verbal harassment, microaggression, unwanted eye contact, or thinking bad thoughts.

Meanwhile, a survey says that three out of four people in business want the handshake ban. We are at liberty to disbelieve that.

You know what’s so weird about this whole thing? It’s like pole dancing in a burqa. They want to be puritans and libertines at the same time. All these new rules restricting virtually any form of male-female interaction are drawn up against a backdrop of the most widespread sexual anarchy ever seen in history. I mean, if you can get through the day without seeing any pornographic images at all, that’s a pretty neat trick. And they start on you in first grade–with all the gender stuff, “you can be a boy one day and a girl the next, depending on how you feel,” invitations to your teacher’s same-sex “marriage,” there’s no bottom to this pit.

Our culture is racing off in two opposite directions at the same time.

May the Lord defend us.

  1. Before I read the article, I thought perhaps this “ban” was supposed to be a means of avoiding the possibility of passing on a communicable disease or something of that sort, but no, it is much goofier than that. Just more of the old childish and moronic nonsense. Where does it end?!

  2. Seems like it already has. What is it going to take to get people to wise up? Is it already to late for that?

  3. That’s the way Satan likes it though, right? Keep us chasing after ridiculous, impossible, soul-destroying things that will obscure our vision of God’s truth. And our culture is lapping it all up as if it makes perfect sense. Call this evil out for what it is and you’re a “hater.”

  4. What? No fist bumps? How about the thumbs up sign? The Christian community is in a heap of big trouble because the Scriptures says to greet one another with a holy kiss.

    1. I didn’t think Lutherans do that. Patty was raised Lutheran, and that’s what she told me. But it would’ve seemed strange to the folks in the Dutch Reformed, where I grew up.

  5. Every time big government bans something, it grows even bigger. But of course those who make these laws don’t follow them anyway so they don’t care whether it makes sense or not. Bureaucrats can rationalize anything these days, even if it exposes their insanity.
