Yes, leave it to The Politic's Spanky to connect the dots A and Z without showing any of his work in between:
From Gay Rights to Incest?
Time: “It turns out the critics were right.”
An article last month by Time reporter Michael Lindenberger titled “Should Incest Be Legal?” highlights the case of Paul Lowe, an Ohio man convicted of incest for having sex with his 22-year-old stepdaughter. Lowe has appealed his conviction to the Supreme Court, making Lawrence the basis of his argument. In Lawrence, the court had ruled that people “are entitled to respect for their private lives” and that under the 14th Amendment, “the state cannot demean their existence or control their destiny by making their private sexual conduct a crime.” If that was true for the adult homosexual behavior in Lawrence, why not for the adult incestuous behavior in the Ohio case?
Ah, yes ... if you're going to curl up and purr at someone's journalistic feet, it might as well be Jeff Jacoby.
Tune in next week when Spanky raises the alarm about another "slippery slope" argument in which allowing Christians the right to discipline their own children might lead to their beating those kids to death. But I'm guessing the logic there is going to be different somehow.
