and dont get me started on the horrible scourge of american cuisine...mcdonalds which is slowly killing all the oceans with its plastic straws and coca cola.
Are you from China? Have you got some kind of privileged info that the rest of us don't? Whatever fairy tale or sad Chinese story you've been reading is misleading you. You need to check your facts and then come back and apologize for this nonsense you are spreading.

The USA hasn't forced anyone to take their trash, or set up Mcdonald's, KFC or any other businesses around the world without permission from those other countries.

I mean seriously, what is your problem? The whole world is in crisis now, and you want to throw stones at the USA. As Christians we should be praying for everyone everywhere in the world right now.

I'm no conspiracy nut but it looks pretty odd that this disease started in China and only a little over 80,000 contracted it and a little over 3,000 died from it, and now it is has ended in China.

For some reason, now though, about double that amount has died in Italy and the USA has got over 100,000 cases of it. The statistics, looks a little odd to me, so far....just saying

So what's your thought on it Lanolin? You think maybe the USA unleashed it on the world to shut down our own economy and infect as many American Citizens and people everywhere that they could?

In China it was mainly older people dying. Why don't you look up female infanticide in China? Might give you a little insight into how much the Chinese government really cares about it's own citizens....just saying.

And no, I'm not trying to go to war with China right now, just sick of all this nonsense you are spreading.

Do your research and then get back to us on it.

People do what they are told in China for the most part.

They shut down Wuhan with 50 known cases. It only continued to spread because some people managed to flee. Much like in Italy the numbers spread to family members since they often all live together.

As well, we really do not know the real numbers in China, I think they were much higher,

You may be right and like I said I'm not normally into all this conspiracy theory stuff that I just laid down. I was really just trying to get to the point that we need to be praying for everyone everywhere around the world and not taking jabs at other countries.

Looks like I may have not followed my own advice in a post or two there, though.

Absolutely agree.

If this a planned, purposeful event, those people who are responsible, have no allegiance to any country, or any people, only to Satan himself

let me tell you chinese people are the most loving gernerous family orientated people around. That is why the chinese nation is one of the most populous on earth. so much that they need drastic measures and population control! It is absolutely horrible that they had to go through this.

my heart hurts thinking about it. if just one person got out, that person could have been in contact with who knows how many..

I love the Chinese people just as much as I do anyone else. God doesn't see color or race. We are to love everyone.

The Chinese government is definitely not perfect and neither is any other government world wide.



The USA didn't do any of this to China, though. So that's all I'm saying stop throwing jabs at the USA, we are in total crisis right now. and we need prayer, as well. Just like the true Christians here in the USA should be praying for every other nations. We are the Children of God not the children of the world. We are all struggling right now and we all need prayer. Getting on here and blaming other countries is not of God and is not helping anyone.

shaking hands is a western thing. Also you are meant to spit on your hands before you shake them to show you really want to share your germs.
Oh? You're only supposed to spit? I've been taking a knife and drawing blood every time... Now I learn it's spit, not blood, that's important. That's probably why it got me some strange looks... :)

I prefer the peace sign (v for victory) myself orsmile and wave hands ir fingers but it seemed that for some strange reason a handshake is what westerners do and often to conclude a business deal or some other shady operation.

the secret handshake is also what freemasons do.

Guess the devil's in a handshake in America, huh? :rolleyes: This is really getting ludicrous. I wonder, do they throw up deuces (peace signs) after shady deals in the eastern countries...Idk...but we know there are shady deals going on everywhere in the world, right. So what do they do where you live...just asking...

I would rather greet folks with the right hand of fellowship than greet them with an holy kiss.

For the cause of Christ

Just a "smile" is a nice greeting, but I understand that "smiles can be contagious"! :eek::giggle::love::love::love:

I for one will not stop shaking hands... If I can find someone to shake hands with! :)
My dear brother Moses, may you never find anyone to shake hands with!
Everyone I greet recently seems peculiarly frightened to shake hands,
You can't blame them.
I mean, I know the government is going on about this Corona virus, but since when did anyone believe the government?
Thousands have died. Thousands are out of jobs. So naturally they will go on about it.
The cold and 'flu' didn't stop people shaking hands for the last 2 millenia, so it's kind of strange to me that people stop now
This is worst, so it needs drastic measures
If it was in the bible not to shake hands, it would be different. But the bible even talks about holy kisses...
There is a time for everything under the sun. Now is not the time for kissing and hand shakes.

That's just the way it is.

They were just extremely aggressive in containing it, while people here walk around without masks, etc. You must have seen videos how did their police handle those who wouldn't wear masks.

The sad thing is there are no masks to wear here, no handsantizer, or gloves anywhere. Not even online.

In Kentucky they are providing people with police escorts home if they refuse to self quarantine and they are also using ankle monitors to make sure they stay at home.

Wow that is really too bad.
Sad people cannot act in accordance with the public good.
People stand up at the wrong time.

No handshake, no hugging in church to prevent coronavirus. What do you think about it?
I think its good because frankly i do not like shaking hands anyway, i am not much of a huger either. Sometimes i do these things but what matters most is fellowship with God then with people.
