The stupid tradition shall now slowly fade out of existence thankfully. I never saw the value. Our church also voted to end it. Thank you!!!!!!!
I fine tradition shared by men of good will, extending their strong hand unarmed to greet in a spirit goodwill or at least temporary respect. Shook hands with a neighbor yesterday.

Your church is not the world. I prefer a Roman salute. Gladiators meeting gladiators.

I think there is a difference between forced group shaking of hands in a scenario like a church and meeting and greeting someone for the first time. To me there is just something fundamentally human about the handshake. I'm not letting a stupid virus take that from me.
True, although I do not indiscriminately shake hands with strangers right now, as it is not in my best interests at my age. I do not think this situation will last though and look forward to freely extending this possibly ancient greeting in future.

Nasty! I will not take someone else's hand and mash it around in my own hand. No way. Not unless I have soap and hot water nearby.

It's just too gross. You don't know where that hand has been and a lot of people don't wash their hands during the day.

I've never accepted hand shaking and never will. Just Say No to hand shaking.
