‘Love Is Love – Legalise Incest Now!’
It clearly is time for incest rights – stop the bigotry now!
‘OK folks, it really is time to end all the bigotry and discrimination. If a man loves his daughter and wants to marry her, who are we to stand in the way of true love? Only a hater or a religious bigot would be opposed to that! End this intolerance now, and let’s go for real marriage equality!’
Anyone who has been following the older debates over homosexual marriage will know that the above is not only actually being called for, but it has been for quite some time now. Those of us who have been warning about extending special rights to homosexuals, including “marriage” rights have long sounded the alarm that a slippery slope does indeed exist, and once you go down that path, there will be no stopping where it leads.
I and others spoke of this for many years now, but we were ignored, criticised, vilified and made fun of. ‘It will never happen.’ ‘You are an alarmist.’ ‘You are a fear-monger.’ ‘Nothing will change when we legalise homosexual marriage.’
I just did a quick search on my own website. Back in September of 2003 I wrote this: “The same arguments used to justify same-sex marriages can be used to justify polygamy, incest, bestiality, group sex, and so on. Once the fundamental idea of marriage as one man and one woman is tossed out, any and all types of sexual activity become permissible.” https://billmuehlenberg.com/2003/09/20/quick-facts-on-marriage/
I often warned about how we open a Pandora’s Box that will never again be shut if we head down that road. And I have been proven 100% right. Everything I and a few others warned about decades ago has been coming to pass, just as we anticipated. Calls for legalised group marriage, incest and even intergenerational sex (paedophilia) have been made by many for years now.
And of course all sorts of euphemisms and pleasant-sounding terms are being used to cover up what is really going on. One of them refers to “CIAO people” (Consensual Adult Incest Oriented people). And notice that this too is an “orientation”. ‘Hey, I was born this way, I can’t help it!’
One of the more recent calls for incest to be legalised is being made by an Australian man. Consider how one media outlet is covering the story:
Consensual incest advocates are rooting for an anonymous New York parent who wants to marry their own adult child. Australian Richard Morris, who is pushing to change incest laws in about 60 countries, said he supports the legal push in Manhattan Federal Court and that such behaviour between consenting adults “should not be criminalised”. He and other advocates have launched about 130 petitions, mostly on Change.org, seeking to change incest laws around the world. Most have received little support. “We haven’t moved any mountains yet,” he told the NY Post.
Mr Morris was inspired to fight for those in consenting incestual relationships, he said, after learning about a Scottish case in which a long-separated father and daughter were reunited, started an affair and were then criminally convicted. Fighting for true “marriage equality” is “the right thing to do, isn’t it?” Mr Morris said. “It seems to be as unjust as the law that used to imprison gay people, and the law that used to stop people of different races marrying,” he added. https://nypost.com/2021/04/17/consensual-incest-should-be-decriminalized-advocates-say/
‘Hey, love is love. It’s consensual! Why all the discrimination? Marriage equality now!’ Um, where have we heard all that before? Oh yeah, back in the homosexual marriage debate, the one where I and others were laughed at, ridiculed and hated on for daring to suggest that this can of worms would only lead to much more of the same.
As I say, I have long been trying to alert people to these things. In addition to the posts that I mentioned above, plenty of others could be highlighted, including “In Praise of Incest” which I posted in December of 2010: https://billmuehlenberg.com/2010/12/15/in-praise-of-incest/
And in my books I also spoke to these matters at length. In my 2011 volume Strained Relations I had a section on the slippery slope in action. I said this in part:
Moreover, the same arguments used for legalising same-sex marriage could be used to argue for legalising incest, polygamy, and any number of other sexual combinations. If a man wanted to have a long-term sexual relationship with his daughter, or if three women wanted to do the same, how could any society argue against it, if it has already overturned the traditional understanding of marriage?
This has been exactly the case with a Columbia University professor charged with incest with his adult daughter. His attorney put it this way: “It’s OK for homosexuals to do whatever they want in their own home. How is this so different? We have to figure out why some behavior is tolerated and some is not. What goes on between consenting adults in private should not be legislated. That is not the proper domain of our law. If we assume for a moment that both parties are consenting, then why are we prosecuting this?”
If marriage is no longer one man, one woman for life, then any number of alternatives seems to be possible. If homosexuals can argue that a loving committed relationship should qualify anyone for the institution of marriage, then other equally binding and loving unions should be recognised.
As Sam Schulman put it, “If we grant rights to one group because they have demanded it – which is, practically, how legalized gay marriage will come to pass – we will find it exceedingly awkward to deny similar rights to others ready with their own dossiers of ‘victimization.’ In time, restricting marriage rights to couples, whether straight or gay, can be made to seem no less arbitrary than the practice of restricting marriage rights to one man and one woman. Ultimately, the same must go for incestuous relationships between consenting adults.”
The truth is, all boundaries are smashed when we redefine marriage.
And in Dangerous Relations, released in 2014, I said this, among other things:
The push for incest “rights” is also sadly now upon us in a big way. Once again a number of voices are calling for this, and it is not just low-life types, but respectable leaders and educators. And once again, to even dare to suggest that the push for homosexual marriage rights will logically lead to incest rights results in plenty of abuse and derision.
One person knows this full well. Actor Jeremy Irons has asked whether we must now tolerate even incest, if we allow homosexual marriage to go ahead: “Academy Award winning actor Jeremy Irons said Wednesday that while he doesn’t have much of a strong opinion either way on same-sex marriage, he believes it poses interesting questions, including whether allowing same-sex marriage would open the door for interfamilial relationships. ‘Could a father not marry his son?’ Irons asked HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps.
“Irons argued that ‘it’s not incest between men’ because ‘incest is there to protect us from inbreeding, but men don’t breed,’ and wondered whether same-sex marriage might allow fathers to pass on their estates to their sons without being taxed. ‘It seems to me that now they’re fighting for the name,’ Irons said of advocates for same-sex marriage as opposed to civil unions. ‘I worry that it means somehow we debase, or we change, what marriage is. I just worry about that’.”
He is clearly asking the right questions, but he took plenty of flak for daring to do so. But as I said, already many people are calling for the complete acceptance of incest, all in the name of tolerance and diversity….
And others are not just asking about this connection – they are making the connection. If homosexual marriage is fine, why not incest? Consider film maker Nick Cassavetes who last year released the film Yellow with incest as the main theme. He saw no problem with this at all, and was happy to thank homosexual “progress” for all this. He said,
“We started thinking about [incest]. We had heard a few stories where brothers and sisters were completely, absolutely in love with one another. You know what? This whole movie is about judgment, and lack of it, and doing what you want. Who gives a shit if people judge you? I’m not saying this is an absolute but in a way, if you’re not having kids – who gives a damn? Love who you want. Isn’t that what we say? Gay marriage – love who you want? If it’s your brother or sister it’s super-weird, but if you look at it, you’re not hurting anybody except every single person who freaks out because you’re in love with one another.”
And of course we must be open to the possibility that this is all just genetic. “After all, I was born that way – I can’t help it.” Yep, let’s just add this to the list of “sexual orientations” which must be acknowledged, affirmed and legalised. And we already have groups seeking to give a pseudo-scientific backing to all this. Consider the site, Genetic Sexual Attraction. Yes I am afraid they mean just what it sounds like they mean: “GSA is a natural response to a broken situation. Humans have been designed to bond with their kin starting at the onset of the relationship and for whatever reasons (divorce, abandonment, adoption) it did not happen. This need to bond, which has been dormant for years, finally has the opportunity at the reunion to form a fierce and profound connection.”
Enough said. The push for the removal of all sexual boundaries seems to be proceeding apace. Once a society declares that homosexual acts and homosexual marriage are important social goods which must be given the full force of legal and social approbation, then the door of necessity just gets pushed open that much further.
I know I am not supposed to say, “I told you so,” but, well, I DID tell you so.

We are entering dark times. Once sexuality sets aside biological realities and “Natural Law”, all manner of vice is unleashed. A Chesterton or Muggeridge would hope to “laugh them to scorn”, but we find that all manner of unnatural vice seeks legitimation, and any call to conversion or second-thoughts, all sense of an enlightened, educated conscience is, instead,held in derision and labelled “hate speech”. The Devil must be laughing his way silly to the next outrageous, sinful proposal…. St Michael, the Archangel, defend us in this day of battle…!
And the arguments here won’t last as for consenting adult the age of consent in the West is generally 16-17 years old so soon they might ask why two siblings both that age or one that age and one 18 or above can’t be together. Then they lower the age so younger siblings can be together and so they can be with mom or dad too. Some seem to want to go to 12 some even lower a few no age at all. (they believe kids are sexual from birth so they don’t see a reason to have an age of consent any kids want to have sex even in the crib. Of course they really just want to legalize their sick twisted behavior so no consent age means if the child, no matter the age, said yes then no crime happened.)
We all know kids are able to be manipulated into thinking things that aren’t true and with such conditions could be made to believe they consented to or even initiated the relationship. (pervs already do that now so making incest legal will only increase it)(as would lowering or eliminating that age of consent)
And let’s not kid ourselves this IS about adult relations with kids. (I think that has ALWAYS been the end game! Even in the stonewall era. NAMBLA was affiliated with gays, till gays found the association held them back and still seems to have gay friends) It is about perverted disgusting men having sex with their own sons, and daughters, and getting away with it because love is love!
And soon enough the part about unable to conceive would be eliminated as it could be mandated that any pregnancy resulting from an incestuous relationship be terminated. (Unless they should discover that children conceived in incest have the right to life because of their unique circumstances that other children don’t have and thus don’t get that right)
Kind, decent, moral people are outcasts WE are now the perverted ones as society sees it! “One man, one woman no kink???? Man you’re a weirdo.”
Bill, you have been completely right all along.
The LGBTQI geniuses, Kirk & Madsen predicted at their war cabinet against the “straights” back in the 80’s that once the homosexual couple relationships were accepted as “natural and healthy”, the rest would follow, including paedophilia.
They were right.
People are so apathetic and gullible.
There used to be a “person” whom you’ve spoken of before, Gary Dowsett. Andrews had him in control of Safe Schools at one stage. Dowsett is a self-confessed paedophile advocate who declares having good friends who are paedophiles. I believe he once described paedophilia as child abuse as it was “depriving children of the enjoyment of inter-generational sex”.
Andrews and Morrison proclaim to be Christians, but allow this depravity to go on.
“Shame” is an understatement.
To conceive or not to conceive?
Now that is a question; on at least two levels. Thanks also Paul Wilson.
Imagination, being able to conceive new things, is very close to being divine, especially if we are able to “create” those things, and from there, conceive even more.
Amazing, fantastic & praise God.
Gen 11:6 “.. and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”
But the problem as described in Gen 6:5 has never been successfully addressed in the men who refuse God’s remedy. “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
So now we have more proof, (as if we needed it), that without the restraint of holiness, righteousness, the law of God, and the fear of God; that man can and will make every effort to imagine what the next evil thing will be, and explore it.
Why are we surprised?
“The restrainer”, is no longer restraining rebellion as it once did. 2 Thes 2:3&6.
“rooting for” in the NY Post quote – the words have a completely different meaning in the USA & Australia; in the former, it means “in strong support of”, as for your favourite sporting team; in this country, it is one of the most commonly used “euphemisms” for sex.
So I wonder whether there was intentional pun in using this quote.
I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a father-son or possibly mother-daughter “couple” as I always thought, could be wrong, they would use a gay “couple” to legalize incest to be able to use pro gay arguments – if two unrelated gay people can have sex and marry why not two related gays – and could label people homophobes for trying to prevent incest from being legalized. Since same sex “love” is no problem with people same sex incest might be a easier pill to get the public to swallow. Then after awhile they go for incest equality!
They claim they are breaking the chains God put on them but he didn’t put chains on us but put fences up to block off certain areas not to keep us from some fun in those areas but to protect us from the dangers that lurk there. Once you’ve knocked down one fence it is easier to knock down another then another and so on. But even the fence breakers understand the point of fences as they will fence off what was once open to people (men and women having sex exclusively in marriage) making it forbidden territory. the fence breakers are few in number but those that follow are large in number. Those who break the fence know what they are doing they claim they are getting freedom but the truth is the just want to get away from God because they ultimately want to be him and refuse to accept his authority.
Without divine intervention non incestuous heterosexual relationships may one day be seen as unnatural, become illegal and in the world’s eyes immoral! (Though I could see them carving out a exception for pedophiles as well) Propagation of the species will be in vitro with some incest babies.
Isn’t it incredible that those arguing for sexual exceptions are the same ones who then argue for uniform totalitarianism. If you don’t accept the wonders of diversity then the government will punish you.
Yes Bill you are totally right and I knew that it would only be a matter of time until people started lobbying and campaigning for Incest marriage to become legal. It is now starting to happen and now that gay marriage has become legal world wide incest marriage will also soon become legal world wide.
“If you cross this line you won’t be able to defend it”.
If we extract God and children from the equation of marriage then the term marriage makes no sense at all.
Marriage by the very term to weld two into one that can multiply its number is all about procreation and the protection of children and has little to do to benefit the adults other than to guarantee each from being a step parent without their consent or be exposed to sexual diseases.
Should we put these elements aside then marriage has no significance at all and the LGBTIQA+ queers are aware of this and will continue to push the boundaries until marriage, family, family home are history and the children become easy pickings.
God gave us the answer in Leviticus 20. 13
The sexual revolution’s damage is soon going to surpass the carnage of the 20th C. Rampant divorce, truckloads of sexual disease, assembly line abortions, children confused of their gender, pornography addiction which is scientifically proven to be enormously damaging on a personal and interpersonal level, sex trafficking, the evils the pornography industry,
