What’s wrong with incest?

I just don’t know where to go with this…

German Siblings Challenge Incest Ban

Leaders of Germany’s Green Party have voiced their support for the Stubings’ cause. “We must abolish a law that originated last century and today is useless,” said party spokesman Jerzy Montag. Critics of the laws against incest say that they were developed as a product of Hitler’s theories on racial purity.

A lawyer for the couple said that their relationship should be preserved as a matter of “sexual self-determination.” He pointed out that neighboring Belgium, Holland, and France do not make incest a criminal offense.

Gee, I really thought laws against incest pre-dated Hitler by at least a few years – give or take 5 or 6 millenium. I vaguely remember reading something about it in the Old Testament…could be wrong…and really, if Belgium, Holland and France think it’s okay, why on earth should we argue? And another thing: they have four kids already! They are just doing their part to raise the declining birth rate! They’re actually saving Germany! Ja wohl!
