BOSTON, March 24, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, which last year legalized same-sex “marriage”, has this week decided that incest is not illegal when it involves a stepparent. The judges ruled 4-3 that incest applies only to blood relatives or to children by adoption.
“This is no doubt a difficult case,” said Justice Robert Cordy, who wrote the majority opinion. “(The ruling) will result in the dismissal of six indictments (against a 60-year-old Dorchester, Mass. man) alleging that the defendant committed incest by having sexual intercourse with his stepdaughter when she was fifteen and sixteen years old.” Meanwhile in India, a 25-year-old man has married his 80-year-old grandmother. “I felt she needed extra care as she is old. I can look after her better as a husband than as a grandson,” Narayan Biswas told the Reuters news service. “As a husband, I am with her all the time, to care for her,” he said. “I helped bring him up with my own hands and now he looks after me. He is a good husband and ensures I get my meals on time,” said Premodas Biswas. The stooped woman now wears the vermilion mark of a married Hindu woman on her forehead. Also in India, marriage is literally going to the dogs. In June, a nine-year old Calcutta-region girl married a dog. Her parents were told the move would ensure their safety against evil.

The report reveals that prohibitions against same-sex intercourse in scripture occur in the context of other types of sexual activity that the church today still largely regards as illegitimate: incest, adultery and bestiality. https://www.lifesitenews.com/waronfamily/homosexuality/
