Actions have the meanings we culturally put on them. Why wouldn't he kiss a book if it only meant "thank you" to his Muslim king-friend? The act simply didn't mean "I approve of these contents", so keep that nonsense out of your head

Kissing a religious object was a sign of veneration in Gregory's time as it is now. Kissing the cross and the altar were prescribed by the liturgical books then as they are now.
