How Incest Will Expose the Philosophical Inadequacy of Contemporary Sexual Ethics

Sep 19, 2016 by

by Carl R Trueman, First Things: When the story broke last week of an Oklahoman mother and daughter who have been arrested and charged with incest for marrying each other, I happened to be on my way to meet a retired lawyer friend at the Philadelphia Cricket Club for a glass of wine. As I sipped my cabernet, I commented to him that, were I a lawyer (which, praise God, I am not), I was confident that I would be able to mount a compelling case for the defense. “I bet you could,” my friend...

Sep 15, 2016 by

by Charlotte Gill, Telegraph: Isn’t it disgusting? Isn’t it funny? The woman who fell in love with her son. But laugh I did not, when I read the tale of Kim West – the 51-year-old who entered a romantic relationship with her child 30 years after giving him up for adoption. Her story was splashed over the newspapers earlier this year, after she revealed how a reunion between the pair sparked an intense romance. They want to get married and start a family.

If ‘Love Is Love’ Why Can’t a Mother Marry Her Adult Son?

Aug 11, 2016 by

by Michael Brown, Charisma: We’ve heard it for years now. “Love is love. I have the right to marry the one I love. Love wins.” Well, if these slogans are true, why can’t a mother marry her adult son? Why is that wrong? If two grown men or two grown women can marry each other, why can’t a grown mother and son have a consensual, loving relationship? Isn’t it bigoted and discriminatory to say that consensual homosexual love should be recognized by the law while...

by Michael Cook, MercatorNet: Now that incest has bee rebadged as ‘genetic sexual attraction’, will it be legalised? The British press is a fathomless mine of lurid but thought-provoking, strange-but-true articles about the dark side of the human condition. Last week’s the revelation in a magazine called The New Day was a passionate incestuous romance between a 51-year-old British woman and her 32-year-old American son.

Necrophilia and incest should be legal, says Swedish Liberal party youth wing

Feb 24, 2016 by

By Sara Malm, Mailonline: The youth wing of the Swedish Liberal party has filed a motion to legalize necrophilia and incest. Liberal Youth of Sweden said that just because it is ‘viewed as unusual and disgusting’, does not mean that the deprived sexual acts should be illegal. They want to legalize sex between two consenting siblings over the age of 15, and sex with a corpse if there is a written permission made before the person died.  ‘We don’t like morality laws in...

We’re All Incest-Phobes Now

Feb 13, 2016 by

By Bryan Ballas, Juicy Ecumenism: Recently the Scottish parliament announced it would consider a measure born of a petition from a man that is calling for the overthrow of laws that are “breaching the rights to sexual autonomy for all consenting adults that is accepted in other more developed countries.” In a world that is increasingly embracing gay marriage, this would be par for the course. Except the petition was not talking about anti-gay laws. It was not even talking about anti-polygamy...
