    And you thought politics in the United States were crazy! We've got nothing on the Scots. Due to a "legislative quirk," the Scottish parliament was forced to debate legalizing incestual relationships between consenting adults. The mandatory debate was held today due to a petition submitted by Australian Richard Morris. The Scottish parliament must consider all petitions which propose a law change.
  • Archaeologists find Akhenaten-era tomb (as a result of Dutch team excavation in the Sakkara area)

    CAIRO (Reuters) - Dutch archaeologists have discovered the tomb of the Pharaoh Akhenaten's seal bearer, decorated with paintings including scenes of monkeys picking and eating fruit, Egyptian antiquities officials said on Wednesday. The tomb belonged to the official named Ptahemwi and was discovered during a Dutch team's excavation in the Sakkara area, the burial ground for the city of Memphis, the state news agency MENA said, quoting chief antiquities official Zahi Hawass. Akhenaten, the 18th-dynasty pharaoh who ruled Egypt from 1379 to 1362 BC, abandoned most of the old gods and tried to imposed a monotheistic religion based on worship...

    Some had names like "Slayer of his Foes" and accompanied the pharaoh into battle. Thousands more were hunted as a ritual of bravery and strength. But only one apparently served as an eternal guardian. A French archaeologist says his discovery of the first preserved lion skeleton in an ancient Egyptian tomb demonstrates the exalted reputation enjoyed by the King of Beasts more than 3,000 years ago. "It confirms the status of the lion as a sacred animal," Alain Zivie reports in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature. Zivie's research team discovered the lion's remains in 2001 as they excavated the...

    The identity of his mother has long been a mystery, although she is not believed to be Akhenaten's Queen Nefertiti. Some theories suggest the boy king's mother was one of his aunts. "Maia is none other than princess Meritaten, the sister or half-sister of Tutankhamun and the daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti," Zivie said. He said his conclusion was based on the carvings of Tutankhamun and Maia on the walls of Maia's tomb. "The extraordinary thing is that they are very similar. They have the same chin, the eyes, the family traits," he said. "The carvings show Maia sitting on...

    In an article celebrating the incestuous relationship of a brother and sister who met for the first time as adults, Cosmopolitan magazine defies “the last taboo” and argues that, by virtue of shared genetics, a brother and sister coupling creates a “perfect storm” that others might be missing out on.The leftwing publication has a history of pushing liberal social causes—whether its celebrating a woman who posted on Facebook a video of herself having an abortion, advocating for gender neutral restrooms, or praising the Kardashian/Jenner family as “America’s First Family.” Now Cosmo is pushing the taboo of incest and seemingly overlooking...

Now that homosexual "marriage" is legal in Pennsylvania, they went to court to dissolve that legal adoption so as to "wed." Judge Lawrence J. O'Toole, of the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County, told the men that state law didn't give him the power to dissolve a legal adoption, unless there was fraud involved.  Now Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) is asking the Obama administration to...

    During last weeks presidential debate, Senator Marco Rubio said that he believed that abortion should be prohibited with no exception for cases of rape and incest. He has reiterated this view in follow-up interviews. Some other Republican candidates who were not asked about their view on the matter take the same position. Governor Scott Walker was asked and said abortion should be prohibited altogether, with no exception even to save a mothers life. Pro-life Republicans need to weigh their words carefully on this matter. Many pro-lifers believe passionately that intellectual consistency demands that they favor legal protection for unborn children...

    Weve been hearing about the issue of sibling abuse lately because of the Duggar situation. How should Christians handle issues of abuse? First and foremost, its important for parents to not ignore the suspected abuse. Sometimes the thought is almost too much to comprehend, so its easier to just assume the best and hope its not happeningand thats a big mistake. The best thing parents can do is address the situation head-on. I would encourage parents to speak to a qualified child psychologist in their area. Then I always recommend that when it doubt, always contact law enforcement. This is...

    Well, not really. But maybe! Can you marry your cousin? It's an interesting question. In some states, YES, you CAN marry your first cousin! In other states - it's a no-no, forbidden. Now HOW and WHY was this state of affairs (or marriages, be it whatever) allowed to exist? How and why did states HAVE THE RIGHT to determine under what conditions marriage was allowable? Because it was RECOGNIZED by the federal government that equal protection WAS NOT VIOLATED by such marriages! Thoughts? Ideas? (btw, my cousin is kind of cute, but she's just not my type...) ;-)

    It stands to reason that if abortion is viewed as morally and legally correct, other immoral acts will become socially acceptable as well. Now, according to a judge in Australia, incest is one of those acts. During the trial of a brother charged with raping his younger sister, Judge Garry Neilson said that incest may no longer be morally unacceptable because the only reason it is criminal is due to the potential for abnormalities in any conceived children. Neilson said that thanks to contraception and abortion, there is no longer that risk. The man on trial had raped his sister...

    Conservatives warned that imposing gay marriage on the country would lead to the legalization of polygamy, incest and bestiality. Liberals pretended that only crazy people would believe that. Because somehow redefining marriage to mean equality for any arrangement in which people claim to be love would in no way lead to those things. The law predictably disagrees. A Federal judge struck down a polygamy ban last year based on the promotion of gay marriage. This latest decision on incest is less explosive, but demonstrates the same principles. Nearly a century after the same court annulled a marriage between an uncle...

    The New York state Court of Appeals has trimmed back a state law banning incestuous marriages, allowing an uncle and niece to marry one another. The decision allows the woman, a Vietnamese immigrant, to avoid deportation. Huyen Nguyen, 34, married her 38-year-old uncle Vu Truong in 2000. She also became a conditional permanent resident of the United States. Six years later, she applied to become a permanent resident of the United States based on her marriage to Truong, who is a U.S. citizen.

    A Danish professor of criminal justice ethics has stated that he thinks consensual sex between adult siblings should be legal. According to Thomas Sbirk Petersen, a professor at Roskilde University, the rise in the number of births resulting from donor sperm, which has the potential to create biological siblings who are born into different families, has created a need to rethink the "old taboos" against incest. In a society where more and more children are being conceived using donor sperm, the risk of falling in love with a stranger who turns out to be a biological sister or brother has...

    Australian District Court Judge Garry Neilson was recorded as saying that sexual contact between adults and children or siblings may no longer be regarded by society as unnatural or taboo. Just as same-sex relationships were once considered socially unacceptable, 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, he said, as quoted by Australias Fairfax Media. Neilson said that the primary reason for incest still being a crime is the high risk of genetic...

    A German advisory council on ethics has told the government it should decriminalize incest between consenting adults. But Chancellor Angela Merkels ruling Christian Democrats have wasted no time in rejecting the advice. On Wednesday the National Ethics Council voted, by a two-to-one margin, to call for the decriminalization of incest. Criminal law is not the appropriate means to preserve a social taboo, the council explained in a statement. The fundamental right of adult siblings to sexual self-determination is to be weighed more heavily than the abstract idea of protection of the family. Many might deem the fundamental rightto sexual self-determination...

    Laws banning incest between brothers and sisters in Germany could be scraped after a government ethics committee said the they were an unacceptable intrusion into the right to sexual self-determination. Criminal law is not the appropriate means to preserve a social taboo, the German Ethics Council said in a statement. The fundamental right of adult siblings to sexual self-determination is to be weighed more heavily than the abstract idea of protection of the family. Their intervention follows a notorious case in which a brother and sister living as partners in Saxony had four children together. The couple had been raised...

    A Centre County Court of Common Pleas judgment was posted by the prothonotarys office Thursday, giving the Paterno family and its co-filers the news they had been waiting for. Plaintiffs have standing to challenge the consent decree, the court documents said. Judge John Leetes 39-page decision is based on arguments made earlier this year in the case brought by the Paternos, four members of the Penn State board of trustees, four members of the university faculty, and former football players and coaches against the NCAA and Penn State regarding the consent decree, the contract that led to the historic sanctions...

    A Christian man was executed during the night by a high-profile ruler after making an uncompromising defense of real marriage. The Christian, who was renowned for his holiness, had told the ruler in public that his relationship with his partner was against the law of God. The Christians words enraged the rulers partner who successfully plotted to have him permanently silenced. John the Baptist was first imprisoned before he was beheaded. The Catholic Church honors him today, August 29, as a martyr and saint. While Johns death happened a little less than 2,000 years ago, his heroic stance for real...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | August 28, 2014 | Professor William A. Jacobson
    We reported last December on how a Utah federal judge strikes down key part of anti-polygamy law: "Yes, this all was predicted long ago, and led to charges of fear mongering and false slippery slopes. The legalization of polygamy followed logically from the legal arguments against one man-one woman, as was predicted not just by me, but also by Professor Martha Nussbaum, one of the leading legal advocates for gay marriage, Polygamy would have to be permitted. And its coming true in a small step, as a federal court in Utah, while not holding that polygamists were entitled to state-sanctioned...

    A new report just released by the group Life Dynamics, Inc. shows documented criminal cases of men who raped innocent kids and when the child became pregnant they were taken, sometimes by the pedophile, and sometimes by another person to abortion clinics who failed to file abuse reports with the state. According to the report, every state has mandatory reporting statutes. Health workers should know that the pregnancy of an underage child is a clear sign of sexual activity. As a result, any child seeking an abortion should be reported for possible sexual abuse. xaviersherronMark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics...

    ALEXANDRIA, La. (BP) -- There are atheists and liberals, some who are both, who believe there is no need for God in order for morality to be maintained in a society. They argue that people can act morally apart from a supreme authority. I agree that people can act morally apart from God's standard. However, the real question is why should they? If there is no supreme authority -- no God -- then why behave morally? If there is no God, there are no objective standards for moral behavior. The logical progression leads to anarchy. Everyone does what is right...

    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...
