Critics of same-sex marriage were roundly mocked when they warned that normalizing such unions would encourage other groups to campaign for the legalization of polygamy, incest and other non-traditional arrangements.
Of course, that’s exactly what’s happening. As the credo “as long as they aren’t hurting anyone” becomes the secular gospel, expect to hear more stories like this one:
A recently reunited mother and son in New Mexico are under scrutiny by authorities for having a sexual relationship, but the pair insist they are in love and should be allowed to indulge their incestuous affair.
Monica Mares gave birth to Caleb Peterson 19 years ago and quickly gave him up for adoption. But recently the two reunited, and Mares says they’ve fallen in love and want to be considered a couple despite facing 18 months in jail if found guilty of incest. (…)
But now the two want to become activists for “genetic sexual attraction” and want to argue that their relationship, and others like it, should be considered perfectly normal.
This couple isn’t stupid. They’re taking their cues from successful campaigners before them, having coined a scientific sounding label for their “sexual preference.”
The next step? Don’t be surprised if a TV series or Broadway play about just such a couple comes out in a few years and “starts a conversation” about the “rights” of the incestuous.
