Incest is the New Gay. Embrace it!
Cutting to the chase. From The Telegraph:
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.”
Essentially the German Ethics Council wants to get rid of the laws which ban incest between brothers and sisters, and while I’m not sure what the full scope of the Council encompasses, it sounds like it is a major factor when it comes to determining a society’s mores. And the reason I bring it up here is because what happens in Europe eventually makes it’s way to the US. We shouldn’t be shocked because conservatives have been warning about this for years and Erick reminds us we will be made to care.
Notice the term sexual self-determination in that quote. It is the justifying argument which has allowed the LGBT movement to entrench itself into every aspect of our lives from schools, to jobs, to the sanctity of marriage. We are expected to no longer ignore it but accept and, in fact, embrace it. Many conservatives argued if society demonstrates approval of behavior of gays then we have started on a slippery slope. What next? Incest, bestiality, pedophilia, necrophilia, and on and on.
But NO, the LGBT community was quick to point out. Just because they wanted to be with their lovers did not mean everyone should go meet up in the barn with their little pony. No, the gay community is just about consenting adults not all those ‘other’ things. Conservatives were blowing things out of proportion.
Well, apparently sibling lovers want their time in the sunshine now. They want to be recognized. They want us to care. And really its just a hop from brother and sister to brother and brother and, of course, parent to child. And since it is only the tip of the slope this conservative maintains we will slide down into accepting the pedophilia relationships and bestiality involving partners that are unable to make ( or voice) a knowledgeable decision about the arrangement.
But take heart, we do have a few good soldiers fighting in this matter. According to the article. Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrat Party has suggested the government there was ” unlikely to adopt” the council’s recommendation. That’s good. Now we just have to pray they stay in power for a very long time.
If you go to the telegraph article you can get synopses of the cases which brought the issue of incest to the Council’s attention. Thank you for reading this. Now back to the war.
