United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) BANS APPLAUSE During Mass....Must Use JAZZ HANDS Instead......To 'Avoid Triggering Anxiety'
No more wild applause during the Mass.
Catholics must now use Jazz Hands if feel the need to applaud.....
To Avoid Triggering Anxiety: “It was argued that the loud noise of traditional clapping and whooping pose an issue to students with anxiety or sensory issues. [British Sign Language] clapping — or, jazz hands — would be a more inclusive form of expression.” Source
