German Committee Claims Incest Is a ‘Fundamental Right’

Germany Credit Mike AtariLaws banning incest between brothers and sisters in Germany could be scrapped after a government ethics committee said that 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 separately and only met when the brother, identified only as Patrick S, was an adult, and his sister Susan K was 16.

    “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.”

    Object by all means to the indirect assertion that sexual
    self-determination is a fundamental right, but be careful to relate the
    Committee’s argument honestly. They are making an argument about the
    legal weighting of two occasionally conflicting paradigms, which is
    precisely what a government ethics committee is supposed to do. A
    secular government must have clear ethical weighting to legislate
    effectively for or against any event.

    Homosexuality today. Polygamy, incest, pedophilia, bestiality tomorrow … all done in the name of “equality”. Take a lesson from “gay marriage” thus far. It’s not about live-and-let-live. It’s about forcing acceptance of their lifestyle on everyone else under penalty of law, teaching it in public schools, etc. Either Christians grow a spine now or suffer the consequences later. Remember: God hates cowards (Rev 21:8).

    Perversion upon perversion upon perversion!

    If it works to promote homosexuality, it can be used to promote every perversion. Behold the anti-God version of morals of the human race.
