Gimmie that Christian side hug? I think not. And I think it's one of the most ridiculous Christian conventions seen in modern times. It's a matter of social customs. If you were raised with social kissing being acceptable, it's a bit difficult to understand the Christian taboo. Americans in general tend to shake hands. But, perhaps it's time to accept that you might run into these social customs and learn how to handle them with grace rather than a horried "I only side hug"expression.
When people are not familiar with the custom of social kissing, their fears and apprehensions about what kissing means become unrealistic. Perhaps they fear it will look like this purposely scandalous video. I'm sure you can see that there is a difference.
