Top Hollywood Director Believes Incest Is Acceptable
CBS Las Vegas ^ | 9/10/2012

Posted on 09/10/2012 2:04:00 PM PDT by Beave Meister

Hollywood director finds it acceptable for people to commit incest.

In an interview with The Wrap, director Nick Cassavetes believes no one should judge a brother and sister being with each other if they are in love.

“I’m not saying this is an absolute but in a way, if you’re not having kids – who gives a damn? Love who you want. Isn’t that what we say? Gay marriage – love who you want?” Cassavetes told The Wrap. “If it’s your brother or sister it’s super-weird, but if you look at it, you’re not hurting anybody except every single person who freaks out because you’re in love with one another.”

Cassavetes added that he does not have experience with incest.

The comments come after he unveiled his latest movie “Yellow” – in which a woman had an incestuous affair with her brother that is in prison – at the Toronto Film Festival. The movie does not yet have a distributor in the states.

Cassavetes also directed “Alpha Dog” and “The Notebook.”

Next it's going to be okay to have sex with your animals as long as you love each other.

A father and daughter, so long as she just turned 18?

Well, at least cassavetes can still count on woody Allen for dinner parties.

This blatant press agentry. Cassavetes is just creating controversial “buzz” for his new film so it will be publicized in places like FR which would otherwise (correctly) completely ignore it.

Making homosexuality culturally “normal” was only to help make way for incest, and pedophilia.

Since both of those were way more repugnant to people, they went with the easy sell. Once the sheep knuckle-under to that, then they will spring these on them.

Like what are they going to do at that point? Draw a moral line in the sand after they agreed to not have any?

So what has Cassavettes directed aside from self-congradulatory hits for other ‘Top’ directors?

"Love who you want. Isn’t that what we say? Gay marriage – love who you want?” Cassavetes told The Wrap. “If it’s your brother or sister it’s super-weird, but if you look at it, you’re not hurting anybody except every single person who freaks out because you’re in love with one another.”

Brilliant deconstruction of why the whole "gay marriage" thing is such a farce and a slippery slope into Hell for this country. I'm sure that's not his intention, but he did it anyway.

He’s John Cassavete’s kid, did we expect him to come out all normal and stuff? And I’m not really sure he’s a top director, he’s got one pretty decent hit, a decade ago.

Remember this line from "The Naked Gun."

Is that not already accepteble in a certain “religion”?

It’s doubtful though that in this type of relationship the love between the two “parties” is mutual.

We know they are all degenerates. Don’t buy anything they’re selling from Hollyweird. Next they will be advocating public orgies with mass child rape followed by human sacrifice of all the victims. That’s where all this is headed.

Well if we do normalize homosexuality, then why not normalize incest as well? As long as two people love each other and all that, now the homos are going to be the bigots.

Wasn’t this inevitable; a natural flow from the gay marriage argument? “Love is love” they keep saying, and as this film maker admits, “love who you want” would also apply to incest, be it brother and sister or father and daughter.

“it’s then that I think that I have lived too long.”

No. YOU haven’t lived too long; I think God’s cup of wrath is quickly filling up, and He will judge who, in fact, has lived too long - quickly and when they’re least expecting it.

It is going to get worse, much worse.

I honestly think that the Penn State scandal was a trial balloon for penderastry. If more wide spread support for Sandusky was shown, you would start to hear leaks of who he was supplying the boys to (I fear he was not alone, but part of a “pipeline”).

Even now, a large portion of the Penn State fans and alumni still support him.

They do? I know many still support Paterno. But Sandusky?

That is so beyond revolting and hateful that I have to go do something else for a while.

When I hear stuff like that, I know that destruction is coming for sure and certain. One way or another. Societies crumble when rampant depravity and cruelty are commonly acceptable or even “celebrated”. People shudder barbarity as practiced in ancient times, but what’s going on now is worse.

People think it is hyperbole or insulting when I say that the goal of the sex positive agenda (which uses the homosexual agenda as a battering ram to society’s laws and mores) is to end ALL moral judgments over ALL sexual pairings regardless of sex, age, relation, marital status, number, or species of parter(s). And our tax dollars fund this agenda, whether it is through SIECUS, public universities, or publicly funded hospitals and the like.

Cassavetes, while I'm sure sincere in his support, has only helped conservatives with the point that redefining marriage for homosexuals opens the door for redefining it for other groups.

"I'm not saying this is an absolute but in a way, if you’re not having kids – who gives a damn?"

In a way --- he's right. But maybe not in the way he thinks.

He's 'right' because as soon as you split procreation away from sex, you've shriveled its meaning. It's disabled. It's shrunken. It's small.

The commitment of sexual intimacy itself, still intact, still procreative, is sacred. It means:

"I'm no longer mine but yours. You're no longer yours, but mine. We belong to the children who may come, and to the 10,000 generations before us and after us, and to God with whose creative powers we now cooperate. His are the times and ages: To Him be glory and dominion, through all ages of eternity. Amen."

You didn't think of it that way? Maybe, like most of us, it took you awhile. But that's what it is.

Split off the procreative significance, and what's left? Insignificance.

"I'm, uh, in love. I guess. Or I was."

"Whatever."

"Meh."

Or in Nick Cassavetes' words, "Who gives a damn?"
