This news should not be a surprise to anyone! I’ve been saying for years that once you abandon the absolute authority of the Word of God, then ultimately anything goes—if you can get away with it. You see, without an absolute authority, there are no restrictions—no absolute rules—everyone does what is right in his own eyes:
In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes. (Judges 21:25)The news item states,
Judge in Australia says incest may no longer be a taboo and the only reason it is criminal is potential birth abnormalities, which can be solved by abortion. . . . Judge Garry Neilson, from the district court in the state of New South Wales, likened incest to homosexuality, which was once regarded as criminal and ‘unnatural’ but is now widely accepted. He said incest was now only a crime because it may lead to abnormalities in offspring but this rationale was increasingly irrelevant because of the availability of contraception and abortion.I have written a blog post on the topic of incest.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
