Mainliners: Tell Me Again Why Incest Is Wrong
Here’s an article from Al Mohler (yep Southern Baptist) that raises what used to be a more or less theoretical question – do the arguments supporting homosexuality also support incest? Seems to me they do. Now the question isn’t theoretical anymore.
Carl Trueman issues a bit more nuanced (I hate the trendiness of that word) challenge to mainliners here.
Logic, of course, has not been the driving force behind the gay movement. Feelings, experience, emotion yes. But logic? For the life of me I can’t see how the arguments for one (gay marriage) don’t also work for incest or polygamy. They do. But who cares about that, really? I dunno – maybe when your daughter wants to marry a guy with 4 wives. Or when your mom comes on to you. Then we might care about the logic of the argument and the political power behind a sexual movement.
