Please direct your attention to the current issue of Discovery magazine. In it you will find that saliva is described as "essentially blood plasma." Well.
As we all know, there is considerable exchange of this precious bodily fluid among people who kiss, i.e., everyone. Of course among JWs that's supposed to include only the married or soon to be. But the soon to be aren't the same as the married. So what we have here is a DOUBLE WHAMMY.
We just can't have unmarried people kissing and exchanging blood components while they're doing it. Now we can getcha if you kiss and you're married. (And we have serious questions regarding other precious bodily fluids that make their appearance during the act of, well, procreation. If saliva is blood plasma, lord knows what that stuff is. But we're investigating that now.) I know, I know, right now they're saying it's only plasma. But next week it might be some forbidden fraction. Best to err on the side of saftey. This is 'cause we all know that Jehovah will get ya for your ignorance as fast as he'll get ya for a deliberate sin of rebellion.
Better knock off that kissing. Now. From now on, the first offense among engaged or married people will be unannounced probation, the second - announced probation, the third - a ride on the big SHIP.
ANY kissing on the part of unengaged people is vorboten already. This now includes kissing among three and four year olds. Age is no excuse. There will still be exchanges and mixin' and whatnot of saliva, plasma, during this godless act. And we know it's godless because Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss. Thus kissing is finally verboten, like we always knew it should be. The scriptures are clear: don't be fooling around with no blood or god will getcha. Just keep it knocked up, erm, OFF.
