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

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

But it says priests may still shake children's hands, pat them on the back and give high-fives.


This should probably go without saying. For anyone, really, unless you are that child's parent.

Agree wholeheartedly. And I'm not just saying that because I'm (forced to be) Catholic. You may now feel free to high-five my children.
