During one of my book studies, the subject of hiv came up. I was told that if a brother or sister was infected with the virus then they should humbly accept the fact that some people may not want them in their homes. So anyone with the virus will be able to attend meetings at the KH but not the book study or any social gatherings.
They explained how an African sister had caught the virus from a patient because she had given him mouth to mouth. I found this really difficult to believe as I'm sure the chances of catching it that way are exceptionally unlikely if possible at all? I expressed this to them and they said "well it was an article in the WT".
I really struggled with it as I thought that if the Watchtower said it then it must be true. I thought that what if the nurse and the patient both had ulcer/sores on their lips then maybe the virus could pass through that way?
Either way I was really quite surprised at their view on an infected person. Also my study conductor went on to develop a stinking cold that she quite happily spread around the KH and others homes and she really was contagious. Has anyone else heard of anything like this or maybe know of the Watchtower or Awake article?
