There is not a day that goes by when the spiraling decay of post-modern thought is not on full display.

One of today’s examples:

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.

“A jury might find nothing untoward in the advance of a brother towards his sister once she had sexually matured, had sexual relationships with other men and was now ‘available’, not having [a] sexual partner,” the judge said.

“If this was the 1950s and you had a jury of 12 men there, which is what you’d invariably have, they would say it’s unnatural for a man to be interested in another man or a man being interested in a boy. Those things have gone.”

So let us understand the judge’s logic:

Homosexual acts are now o.k.

Incest is like homosexuality, so it is o.k.

Besides, if incest leads to the conception of a child, you can kill the child by abortion.

Just to make sure the record is set straight.  From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

2388 Incest designates intimate relations between relatives or in-laws within a degree that prohibits marriage between them. St. Paul stigmatizes this especially grave offense: “It is actually reported that there is immorality among you . . . for a man is living with his father’s wife. . . . In the name of the Lord Jesus . . . you are to deliver this man to Satan for the destruction of the flesh. . . . “ Incest corrupts family relationships and marks a regression toward animality.

Saint Paul wasn’t buying the incest thing…”deliver this man to Satan for the destruction of the flesh”

Also, note that last statement: Incest corrupts family relationships and marks a regression toward animality.

Incest is like animality.

By the way, note to Judge Neilson: though some accept man/man and man/boy sexual acts as o.k, it’s still unnatural and disordered.  Again, from the CCC:

2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.

Catholic men need to be vigilant against all assaults on the truth taught by the Catholic Church, for the Church is the only institution on earth that speaks the full Truth of God.

We need to challenge and condemn the evil insanity coming from the growing ranks of lawless judges.

And always remember: There is one Divine Judge, our Lord and King Jesus Christ.  It is Christ who will make the final judgement on each man.

Pray that you have not been deceived by the insanity of the judges of this world.
