The independent National Forensics Bureau in the former Soviet state is offering the service for 175 lari (£69), or twice that if you want it done quickly, reports Imedi TV. That's more than it costs the average person to get by for a month, according to national statistics. The women are often accompanied by relatives, their prospective husbands or - often - their mothers-in-law [. . .]

So many inappropriate comments come to mind...must flee thread.

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

And yet virginity is just marginally related to having had sex or not.
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

Probably less costly to visit one's gyn.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

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.
