The Nazareth Baptist Church located in Ebuhleni, South Africa is reported to have carried out a virginity test on its unmarried female members and issued certificates to those who have stayed chaste.
The reason behind the virginity test is believed to encourage young ladies in society to abstain from premarital sexual activities.
The test is done every year at the Nazareth Baptist Church in South Africa. The leader of the church and the specialist who conducts the test pens down their signatures on all the certificates of the ladies that passed.
The ladies who are found to be real virgins are given a white mark on their foreheads to prove to society.
The certificates issued are, however, valid for just a year. It is only valid until the next test is conducted again. Staying away from sexual activities in recent years are very difficult for many.
The practice by the South African church has been praised by many people all over the world.
