Skip to comments.Next battle in “marriage equality” debate: Incest
Posted on 07/11/2014 10:57:56 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
A judge has suggested that now that same-sex marriages and homosexuality have become more accepted the next logical step could be to legitimize incestuous relationships.
A jury might find nothing untoward in the advance of a brother towards his sister once she had sexually matured, had sexual relationships with other men and was now available, not having [a] sexual partner, Judge Garry Neilson from Australia said.
Neilson compared incest to homosexuality, saying that such relationships were once illegal.
If this was the 1950s and you had a jury of 12 men there, which is what youd invariably have, they would say its unnatural for a man to be interested in another man or a man being interested in a boy. Those things have gone.
Opponents of same-sex marriage have long predicted that once the traditional definition of marriage between a man and woman is changed then there would be no logical basis to prohibit any other type of marriage arrangement including polygamy and incest.
Supporters of same-sex marriage have disputed these claims insisting the situations are entirely different and that it is not hypocritical to call for expanding marriage to same-sex couples while denying it to siblings. The claim frequently made is incest can be legitimately prohibited due to the possibility of birth defects in offspring.
However, Neilson said while he agreed the only reason incest was currently a crime was because it may lead to abnormalities in children born from the relationship he said this argument is largely irrelevant because of the widespread availability of birth control and abortion.
Indeed, the same-sex marriage may have unwittingly provided ammunition for Neilsons position by how they have changed the terminology used to bolster their cause.
In the early days of the debate over homosexual debate the issue was over same-sex marriage. However, when that phrase failed to garner support among many Americans who are still opposed to homosexuality the homosexuals and their supporters changed the phrase to marriage equality, thus downplaying the homosexual angle.
In 2012, the Democrat controlled legislature in Colorado was preparing to pass a civil union bill, the text of the legislation said its purpose was to ensure equality but it prohibited family members from entering into a civil union regardless of their sexual orientation.
State Sen. Kevin Lundberg, one of the two Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee who voted against the bill said it was hypocritical for Democrats to sponsor a bill that supposedly was for equality, but instead had discrimination written into it.
When I was calling for the exemption for child placement organizations, Sen. Pat Steadman who sponsored the bill said no to the amendment because that would be allowing discrimination to occur and he was not going to do that, Lundberg said. I pointed out to him the bill itself has discrimination written into it by saying that two sisters or close relatives cant be a part of a civil union. However its quite clear that theyre simply saying its my way or the highway in that respect.
Lundberg said supports of the bill refused to defend or even respond to his question about discrimination.
I thought the baby rapers were up next!
What this is headed towards is procreation. The state wants to control procreation. They will use every back door tactic to get the control
Everyone wants genetic defective kids.
No, I think polygamy first, then incest. But yeah, legal restrictions on marriage among consenting adults are done. The precedent has been set: The state has no compelling interest in telling consenting adults they can’t marry the people they love.
Can you say Sodom AND Gomorrah?
Scratch a homo find a pedophile, EVERY TIME. If they can adopt a kid, they will. If they can buy a Uterus they will buy one as a surrogate and wait. If they have to they will pretend to like a single mother to have access to her pubescent and prepubescent child.
It would all be easier if they can just convince people that it is natural and in reality it is even Christian to have sex with children. To deny them their nature is just your own prejudice, bigot!
Can you imagine what they will want in say 20 years. I can’t, these people have no barriers to control them. If it feels good they just want it.
God will not let this just to continue.
It’s beyond what I ever thought would be acceptable.
Who knows, but maybe that is included in this already. I thought that bestiality was up next. If they allow this, how will the powers that be, deny approval and permission, to some idiot out there, who will demand he be allowed to marry his pet Beagle? You know there will be no end to the evil perversions that people will come up with.
Marriage is all about love right?
Incest is a bit early. Next is polygamy. After that is pedophelia. Then incest.
Some times I just want to give up. I'm so tired of fighting against the socialist/commie/degenerate machine. So glad I have my 1958 Chevy Impala to remind of a better day.
Spot on! You have nailed it. They are trading Natural Law for relativist man made law. We will see in the years ahead the chaos this misguided thinking creates. Watch for Big Government stepping in to regulate procreation. You will not be able to impregnate your wife without government certification.
Spot on Mark - Homosexual Marriage is the gate that opens up the world to all the perversions that hell has to offer and all those on the devil’s side will revel in it!
The perversion never ends. We’ve seen this chapter play out in other civilizations so we know what’s coming next. The destruction and fall of this once great nation.
That’s a cartoonist with some serious cajones...
They’ll just abort them by slitting their throats anyway. The left is perverse
With gay “marriage”, you’ve already hit the bottom of the barrel.
Everything else is or has been common at some place and time.
Gay marriage is the one thing no one before carried over the threshold.
You are 100% correct. Political correctness which has ushered us to this place, is returning civilization to the jungle. I wonder if people have noticed that sexual perversions seem to always lend themselves to perversions of thought processes in general. Lack of sympathy and empathy, I think, is one stark example of this. Forcing sexual activity on children, in my view, deserves the death penalty, for those acts kill something in that child and may even effect brain development..That child will never developed as normal. The day that pedophilia is tolerated in this nation is the day we all can know that our government has been infiltrated by an army of the perverse.
I believe Romans 1:32 applies here.
I believe you are quite correct! :)
I certainly can't dispute this.
How quaint of Neilson to restrict his New Frontier to brother-sister incest. If there's nothing wrong with that--what's wrong with parent-child incest--or any other kind of incest for that matter? Or adult-child sex? Or adult-infant sex?
If by controlling procreation you mean enforced abortion, I think you're spot on. All governments grow and accumulate power. What greater power can their be than the power over the life and death of your subjects. The State, having destroyed religion and religious beliefs, wants to become God.
Seems like islam.
Oh, no doubt. I’m just saying they’re going to do consenting adults first.
This will get the attention of the Dems and GOPe Lite. Why? Money! There goes the death tax. I can marry my dad and get his money tax free!
“Who could have seen this coming?” She asks with a sarcastic smirk on her face.
Nothing says loving like doing your cousin.
This -- along with the rest of the Left's agenda -- is focused like a powerful laser beam on undermining America's Judeo-Christian values and heritage to the point of irrelevancy.
Unfortunately, many decent Americans have been reluctant to come to grips with the fact that their fellow citizens on the Left hate America and everything America stands for ... it is a hard thing to accept. But, just as the mulatto-marxist-muslim put it concisely back in 2008 when he said his goal was to "fundamentally change the United States of America" -- in his confused mind, all 57 states -- this is a fact.
Sodomite “marriage” may the bottom of the barrel, all right. But our dying civilization has hit bottom and started digging.

(he was talking about infidelity though)
There's no perversion road map that has to be followed, just an opportunistic testing of limits on all fronts.
