      I agree with Cheryl.
      I believe in our society, a ring means marriage.  That you are taken, not available. Back off!  It is a symbol of love for a spouse. In other cultures it can mean something different.

      I don't know about childish.  I mean people who see a wedding band think "marriage" before they think "Papist."

      Well its better than wearing it through ones nose!! ;-)

      But, I don't see the childish connection.  Making a stand in even the smaller things can be a noble thing to do. (IMHO)  And it IS being different to the world which we are called to do.

      It may help with the papists but it will put one right into the Eastern
      Orthodox camp :-) Not sure which one is worse :-)

      But seriously, I find the idea of wearing a ring on a right hand just so
      one can be different from the papists is childish.
