Returning home from the Banner Conference, there's lots to catch up with. Archibishop Cranmer is always worth a look; scroll down to April 13th ( can't work out how to link directly to this one) and see his comment on the case of Patrick Stuebing. It's a sad case: Patrick only ment his sister after thy were grown; they fell in love and have four children together. He argued that the law against incest discriminated against him - and he lost. As Cranmer says, the law apparently does have the right to a say about what is allowed in the bedroom. 'In matters of sexual expression we are not free to do as we please.'
Hmm. I agree, of course. But I do wonder - don't you? - if incest between two brothers would have been deemed illegal?
