What The World Has Come To: These Days, Hands Off Is The Best Policy
by Michael Fox
Always plenty of folks willing to comment on a topic, and that results in the article on touching run by the Cox News service. You can see it here at the Springfield Sun website. This story was inspired by the allegations against the now confirmed gay Episcopalian bishop, that he inappropriately touched another man at a church function. It turned out those touches were on the arm and back and in full view of a number of other people. Nevertheless, some of the quoted wisdom summed up by the headline, can't just be scoffed at given todays litigious society.
Incidentally, the Mail & Guardian seems to have already promoted Gene Robinson to archbishop. See the headline here, although that error is not repeated in the main story.
