Satire on Legalisms

Thank you to satirical Babylon Bee for their Hershey’s Replaces ‘Kisses’ With More Pure ‘Sidehugs’ For Christian Market:

"...In a new attempt to court the Christian market, 
the Hershey Company unveiled Monday 
its brand-new “Hershey’s Sidehugs™️,” 
a Kiss™️-like chocolate that promises to be more pure 
and only slightly less fulfilling...

...the new chocolate treats “far more appropriate for brothers and sisters in the Lord”..."

Hi Jill,

Carolyn here. I saw this BabylonBee, too, and laughed very hard! It's such a great satirical example of legalism.

Funny, though, how the Bible talks about greeting one another with a "holy kiss". Can't see that happening on Sunday mornings in most American assemblies. :)

Thank you, Carolyn, legalistic side-hugs are funny, and then you realize it is also very true in so many legalistic groups.
