And yet virginity is just marginally related to having had sex or not.

When I saw this topic I thought it was talking about the OTHER Georgia and wasn't too surprised. Now I am even less so.

How is this "Christian News"?
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

That isn't news.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Well, if you click the link, we do get a shout out:

Maintenance of virginity before marriage is deeply entrenched in the Orthodox Christian country, although not everyone's happy with the idea of it being documented.

But that's about it, as far as I can tell.  Fairly tenuous connection to Christianity and to news (as Isa said, our respect for virginity is fairly well established).

Line em up for the virgin cleansing, if you are still HIV+ after, then she ain't a virgin.
