Here Comes Incest, Just as Predicted
Townhall ^ | 9-11-12 | Michael Brown

Posted on 09/19/2012 6:33:04 PM PDT by ReformationFan

If all human beings should have the right to marry (or simply be with) the one they love, as proponents of same-sex marriage constantly tell us, then why shouldn’t adult, incestuous couples enjoy that same “right”? Hollywood director Nick Cassavetes is the latest to say, “Why not?”, and I for one am not in the least bit surprised.

Simply stated, with the public endorsement of same-sex relationships, the endorsement (or at least acceptance) of consensual, adult, incestuous relationships is the next step. Consider the following:

· Already in April, 2007, Time Magazine featured a major article entitled, “Should Incest Be Legal?” The article noted that critics of the Supreme Court’s Lawrence v. Texas ruling in 2003, which struck down Texas’ anti-sodomy law, argued that the ruling would lead to attempts to legalize same-sex marriage and polygamy. “It turns out,” Time noted, “that the critics were right,” adding that plaintiffs were now “using Lawrence to challenge laws against incest.”

· In December 2010, when Columbia University professor David Epstein was charged with one count of incest because of his three-year, consensual affair with his adult daughter, his attorney Matthew Galuzzo remarked, “It’s ok for homosexuals to do whatever they want in their own home. How is this so different? We have to figure out why some behavior is tolerated and some is not.”

I just discovered this editorial. It's so sad to see what's coming next on the horizon in the fall of Western culture.

We-told-them-so ping.

What needs to be kept in mind very firmly, though, is that these norms are self-righting, if we can get the Left out of our faces.

This is all the Left, working furiously to demoralize and degrade Western Civilization so they can seize power.

Just the start after the queers got their way. Next after incest will be two old queers and some sheep or goats getting married or two old queers and a large male dog. From there it will go to torture and killings for sexual fun and kicks. It’s a downward spiral all by Satan’s hands.

I’m waiting for the announcement on Pedophiles. They “can’t help it if they are just born that way” ... Not their fault so the libs, if “fair and balanced” will give them equal protection as gays. Then incest, multiple wives..... ( hell/ hand basket ...absolutely correct!).

Lawrence v. TX will also be used to challenge bigamy laws. Oh wait, it already has been; a Mormon and one of his two wives filed a Utah case citing Lawrence about a month after the ruling.

First the Marxists, liberals, and socialist break down the morals of the country through same sex, incest,polygamy until we become immoral,and no longfer believe in God or his commandments, then after our coiuntry fails and they take over they will make all of these things illegal again and there will be NO Freedoms.

Culturally, the 1950's in America were probably the high water mark for world history. Since then, despite technological wonders, it has pretty much been all down hill and into the barn.

Let me say this about that. Of course I do not condone incest in any way, but I’ll tell you that the “incest” portion of the boilerplate language about “acceptable” abortions “rape, incest, and the life of the mother” has always annoyed me.

Clearly it was put there by our propaganda betters (and in propaganda they are our betters, but we may be catching up, I hope so anyway) on the Left to conjure up images of dreadful fathers molesting their daughters. But, my question about this always was: isn’t that circumstance covered by “rape”?

Not to put too fine a point on it, if you are over 18 and are schtupping your brother, and you get pregnant, I’m not sure I think you get to have an abortion.

Hey, don’t flame me, OK.

While chaperoning a local prom a couple of years ago one of the guys brought a blow-up doll as his "date." She was dressed tastefully in a light blue dress (actually far more tastefully attired than maybe 1 in 5 of the "real" girls there). He did it as a joke, and we chaperones let him and his buddies have their fun - just dancing and a few pics. Nothing lewd, in fact far less lewd than the "real" girls were dancing...

That was just in fun. But with the gay agenda moving forward, in a year or two this could be a serious option. No way.

To a great degree they are maligned because the morals, ethics and traditions of the times kept the beasts from running wild.

Now the beasts and lesser breeds have been unleashed with the government protecting them most of the time.

In Trinidad there was a family
with much confusion as you will see
it was a momma and a papa and a boy who was grown
wanted to marry a wife of his own
found a young girl suited him nice
went to his papa to ask his advice
his papa said: “Son, I have to say no,
that girl is your sister, but your momma don´t know”

Who is real?
Shame and scandal in the family
Who is real?
Shame and scandal in the family

A week went by and the summer came down
soon the best cook in the island he found
he went to his papa to make a day
his papa shook his head and to him he did say
“Can´t marry that girl I have to say no
that girl is your sister, but your momma don´t know”

Who is real?
Shame and scandal in the family
Who is real?
Shame and scandal in the family

Went to his momma and covered his head
and told his momma what his papa had said
his momma she laughed, she says: “Go man, go
your daddy ain`t your daddy, but your daddy don´t know

I suspect that it’s a leftover vestige of the old eugenic laws of the early 20th century, since children that are the result of incest have a high chance of genetic illnesses.

Isn’t INCEST one of the trusty situations libs use to justify murdering millions of babies?

The sex positive agenda as espoused by Reich, Kinsey, and feminists seeks to end ALL moral judgments over ALL sexual pairings regardless of sex, age, relation, marital status, number, or species of partner(s).

As long as you weren't poor.

They mean rape by a father, brother, cousin, or uncle. Consensual incest is okay in their book. But in the instance of rape/rape doesn't sound convincing enough so "rape or incest".

it is/was inevitable once we had the push to legalize "g marriage"

Even in pederast Greece or other societies where hsxlity was the norm, almost expected, there was no question of this being legalized as a marriage.

marriage was between a man and a woman. Full stop

The ancient gaylords knew that hsxl "unions" are just flings, continuous flings, not something of permanence like a marriage (even semi-permanence like amongst the Roman elite)

We have devalued marriage with easy divorce, acceptance of multiple divorce, acceptance, in fact the norm is to shack up before marriage etc.

G Marriage was the next logical move and then this

like in ancient sparta where kids were taken away from Moms at the age of 6 and the boys were to live communally (and take older men as lovers) until 30 when they could get married.

No love in a Spartan marriage either -- the men would prefer to b***** boys.

I think the Quaran specifically says a man cannot marry or have sxual relationships with his mother/step-mother/mother-in-law/aunt/sister/niece/daughter/step-daughter/daughter-in-law

Though Mohammed did marry his step-daughter-in-law....
