These new findings about HIV transmission, in my view, provide even more evidence that purity is (Biblically, obviously) the way to go. Apparently mothers, either through breast-feeding or by pre-chewing food for their infants, have transmitted the virus. Granted, the vast majority of evidence so far says that HIV isn't present in saliva, but there are these things called *capillaries* and *absorbent mucous membranes* in the mouth. What, really, is so bad about abstaining from kissing as well as other, more dangerous, activities before marriage?
Update 2/12/08: Hoosier Army Mom also blogged about this.
