Why would he reserve that for bishops only? And why would the Pope act like it some personal thing when someone goes to kiss his ring?

All this shows complete disrespect for Orders and the papacy, IMO. They don't want to see themselves as having a special role -- but they do. And it has nothing to do with their personalities, their selves, their fake-humble persons*; it's a Christ-given sacrament that they've received and we haven't. It's as if they're trying to do away with the concept of Holy Orders. 

* There's nothing humble about embarrassing people so you can come off as "not prideful." On a deep level, I think it's a truly vicious thing to do.
I don't speak Polish.  I suspect that, if the other poster is correct that he is a priest, not a bishop, there is more to the story than just "don't kiss my hand".  Perhaps hand kissing has a specific meaning in Poland??  A meaning that the priest cannot accept??
