The state’s (New York’s) highest court has toppled a cultural taboo — legalizing a degree of incest, at least between an uncle and niece — in a unanimous ruling.
While the laws against “parent-child and brother-sister marriages .?.?. are grounded in the almost universal horror with which such marriages are viewed .?.?. there is no comparably strong objection to uncle-niece marriages,” Tuesday’s ruling reads.
Remember: There are no slippery slopes, you’re just a paranoid extremist, and accepting the argument that “the government (meaning the law) has no business in our bedrooms and should never interfere with the love between consenting adults” will never EVER lead to the blessing of polygamy, incest or marrying your favorite video game (this last we could at least dismiss as being merely idiotic, which seems to be the way humanity is going).
And if you think otherwise you’re just a paranoid, bigoted subhuman who should be put in jail for thought crimes.
From one of our favorite sites, Protein Wisdom, from whom we nicked this story:
Though, it makes a convenient excuse for judges who either don’t know, don’t care or are timid about the history of marriage and want to be viewed as Modern and Hip.
Or maybe they just have really sexy nubile nieces that they’d like to bury their rods in one day.
This country really needs a lesson, or the Good L-rd is going to owe Sodom and Gomorrah a serious apology.
