German government says incest is best

Jul 12, 2015 by

By Alexander Boot: Little girls are so touching, don’t you think? That’s why their father should touch them, recommends a subsidiary of Germany’s Ministry for Family Affairs. The rather bossy recommendation comes in its two 40-page brochures entitled Love, Body and Playing Doctor, the first one talking about children from 1 to 3, the second about those from 4 to 6. The kind of touching this august body has in mind would have landed Daddy in the pokey anywhere in the West not so long ago, and in some places it still would. For what’s meant here isn’t just a hug or a pat on the head, accompanied by the lapidary if rhetorical question “So who’s Daddy’s gorgeous little girl then?” “Fathers do not devote enough attention to the clitoris and vagina of their daughters,” laments the 1 to 3 booklet. “Their caresses too seldom pertain to these regions,...

A German ethics committee wants to legalise incest

Jul 10, 2015 by

By Oliver Wheaton, Metro: Incest could be made legal in Germany following a meeting of the national Ethics Council. They have called for the legalisation of incest after looking into the case of a brother and sister who had four children together. Despite the dangers of children of incestual relationships being born with abnormalities, the committee claim this risk is not high enough to warrant its criminalisation. The committee cited Patrick Stuebing who, after being adopted as an infant, met his biological sister in his 20s and started a relationship with her. He was imprisoned for three years in 2008, and lost an appeal at the European Court of Humans Rights over his right to a family life in 2012. Under current German law sexual relationships between siblings of between parents and their children is illegal and punishable with up to two years in prison. Read here...

Report: New York Woman to ‘Marry’ Her Biological Father

Jan 24, 2015 by

by Heather Clark, Christian News: A New York woman from the Great Lakes region says that she is set to marry her biological father after being estranged from him for 12 years—a report some say confirms the slippery slope America is on concerning the devaluation and redefinition of marriage. The unnamed woman is 18 years old and says that she was conceived by her parents on prom night when they were 18 themselves. Her parents soon split and her mother, who struggles with a mental disorder, married another man, and then another—neither of whom she particularly liked. “[W]hat I missed was a fatherly figure,” she told New York Magazine last week. “My mom’s always picked the wrong guy out of the crowd and she’s had a couple of divorces. I’m still not really close with my current stepfather even though they’ve been together for ten years.” The girl, who says...

Incest: The Next Frontier in ‘Reproductive Freedom’

Jan 20, 2015 by

By Matt Barber, Charisma News: Like a plastic Piggly Wiggly bag fluttering about in the alley, those untethered from God’s natural law are violently tossed to and fro by the gusting winds of moral relativism. Jenny Kutner is one such Piggly Wiggly bag. A 20-something assistant editor at, she describes herself as “focusing on sex, gender and feminism.” By “focusing on sex, gender and feminism,” and as you will soon see, this young “progressive” means to say that she spends her days rationalizing each and every conceivable form of sexual deviancy, as well as trying to otherwise deconstruct that which she and her fellow feminist travelers view as an artificially constructed culture of “heteronormativity”—the sinister brainchild of the evil-men-led global patriarchy (for those interested, we meet Tuesdays at noon at the Golden Corral on Wards Road). Along with a growing numberof secular leftists, Kutner’s latest sexual taboo for de-stigmatization is incest. Those...

New York appeals court unanimously OKs some incestuous marriages

Nov 3, 2014 by

By Ben Johnson, LifeSite: 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. Since the passage of the 1965 Immigration Act, the U.S. government has given preferential treatment to relatives of American citizens. But when the Department of Homeland Security learned that the two were related, officials initiated deportation hearings instead. Judge Philip Montante Jr. ruled that their marriage was invalid due to incest, a decision upheld by the Board of Immigration Appeals last year. New...

Decriminalize incest, says German gvmt’s ethics council

Sep 27, 2014 by

by Steve Weatherbe, LifeSite: A German advisory council on ethics has told the government it should decriminalize incest between consenting adults. But Chancellor Angela Merkel’s 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 right…to sexual self-determination” considerably more of an abstraction than “protection of the family,” including both judges and politicians. But the ethics council argued that because incest was rare in Germany though illegal (several news reports cited a study by the Max Planck Institute claiming two to four percent...
