    And if those men did keep their hands to themselves and followed Pence's rule they would still have their jobs.


    ...And I guess you never heard of any false accusations of sexual harassment and rape before either? I am sure Rogue will be along shortly and repost his list of them for you if you haven't.

If this were not the issue, then the same rule would apply for solo meetings with men. IMO, it's sexist and juvenile, or seriously paranoid.
    Yeah, thanks.

    As I have stated earlier, the ONLY time I've ever had a complaint about my observance of "the Billy Graham rule" was by a woman who tried to have a meeting with me after Church on a Wednesday night, when she and I were the only two people in the building. I declined the meeting, and suggested she stop by in the morning. She tried to make an issue of this, complaining to our Deacons. One of them happened to know that this very same woman had had an affair with a married minister in our community in his office at night. She became his second wife, and he became her third husband. He's not her current husband.

    I've seen some recent photos of Keanu Reeves standing for photos with female fans, and while he has his arm around them, you can clearly see him keeping his hand from any actual physical contact.

    I wonder if this, too, would be seen as simply objectifying them.

    I think it's a generally wise rule but personally think it's good to be willing to make reasonable exceptions on a case-by-case basis. Once, my wife asked me to pick up another woman in our church from the hospital to take her home, since there was nobody else available to drive that morning. I think refusing on the basis of the Billy Graham rule and leaving her stranded there would have been unloving (not to mention silly since it was my own wife asking me to do it!)

    I think a case like that would be a perfectly reasonable exception to the rule.

    Not sure if I have that list but could whip one up easy enough.

    Anywho... It just seems strange that those on the left have so many objections to "the Billy Graham Rule." It's almost like they're mad that the majority of those ensnared in the #MeToo movement were prominent liberals and want conservative men to put themselves into potentially compromising situations so they can face more accusations

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Yeah it seems upside down. By making sure they keep their distance and NOT grope women, men are disrespecting them?

    I guess that means Joe Biden is showing his respect by smelling their hair and giving them shoulder rubs then.

    Yes, there will be exceptions, which is why it might be called a "rule" as opposed to a "law".
