The Christian Side Hug

Thanks to my favorite pop culture blog, D-Listed, I learned that the Born-Agains don't just do Salsa and Merengue. They also do do (a very Caucasian hot mess version) of "hip-hop." I had read that this thing called a "side hug" was a way in which to avert any temptation caused by frontal body-to-body contact, both hetero and (gasp!) homo-social. This song posted on D-List is propaganda for the chaste "Christian side hug" - so again, no body to body contact, brethren. This reminds me of dances at Catholic school where chaperones would pry couples apart paradoxically saying "leave enough room for the Holy Sprit."
