    I`d love to know why "Christians" are more easily tempted by contact than atheists or agnostics.

    There`s nothing "wrong" with it but imo it`s a wrong approach. Avoiding temptation altogether does nothing for the bettering of the person. Do this all your life and the first time a girls answers the door naked and asks you to come in (pun semi intended and this has actually happened to me once) or some other situation out of their control they have no true learned self control and will likely fail to make a good choice. It`s more important to control yourself and discipline your mind than to avoid things `just in case`.

    tldr; Goodness isn`t defined by a lack of temptation but by the conquering of oneself and their temptation. -Confus... oh wait, nope, that was me.

    Nevermind that @jtrebowski, what about Muslims?

    Oh... My... Allah! Look at that ANKLE! What a slut, she`s just asking to get raped!!!
    *goes ahead and rapes woman*
    *woman goes to prison, man goes free*

    So yeah, what exactly is wrong with a LITTLE self-control? Modesty? No Christian ever demanded you wear a burka...

    Maybe not a burka, and not so much now that their power has waned, but, by drat the stricter ones would cover us all up if they could.

    Why am I in such a foul mood tonight? @madest is resigning/ being fired! I had a pleasent evening with friends...

    Anyhow, @steve: 200 years ago the Christian Church were jerks, I agree.
    TODAY the Muslims rape and kill women, in the name of Allah, as they have since the time of Muhammed! It`s in their history books ffs!

    I would think that just as important would be the SAME SEX Christian side hug, lest the greeting of a dear friend one hasn`t seen in a long time be misconstrued as a homosexual contact, thereby necessitating an emergency exorcism.
    Just sayin`.

    Well, they do make it a "habit" of wearing a black dress should you decide to devote yourself to God. Also, your scenario about Muslim men raping women doesn`t hold water to the problem with Christian men raping boys in the church.

    Had this friend, Mary. She front hugged some guy and got preggo. She had to raise the kid with another guy, Joey. The son, Jesus, grew up and was murdered and everyone still wont stop talking about them. PLEASE DO NOT LET&#65279; THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!

    @5cats: Just so you know, saying that muslims are worse doesn`t mean that christians don`t worry about this slippery-slope to licentious revelry, which is a total joke. Look at studies and anyone can see that abstinence-only education programs don`t do anything to prevent sex. Although, I have to admit, a good face-to-face hug always seems to get a 3/4 chub going. :-P

    5cats: "So yeah, what exactly is wrong with a LITTLE self-control?"

    Except it doesn`t seem to be ABOUT self-control: they`re saying that you have NO self-control, and would be unable to resist wild fornication if you so much as gently brushed up against a breast.

    What this IS about is THEM wanting to control you...because they don`t think you HAVE any self-control.

    That`s why it`s fubar.

    This is the hilarious thing: Hardcore Christians are so sexually repressed that they are the only ones to over-sexualize stupid poo like a HUG. People with healthy sex lives can hug people without having an anxiety attack. Probably the same reason so many priests just can`t stay away from the choir boys..

    I`m originally from the bible belt, so I`m way too familiar with the side-hug. It`s usually young born-again types who do this crap. Oddly enough, it was a minister who taught me how a "proper" hug is done (right arm up, left arm down, three pats on the back)
