The Incest Petition – Another Brick Removed from the Wall

Jan 28, 2016 by

From TheWeeFlea: For the past few years we have been warning that if the society rejects the bible’s teaching about sex, sexuality and humanity, then SSM would not be the only brick to be taken out of the wall.  I believe that in order the next to fall will be the taboos and laws against polygamy, incest and pedophilia.  And so bit by bit it is happening.  In these past few days I have read about the British welfare state subsidising polygamy, a conference in Cambridge declaring that...

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 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...

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.
