And Europe’s post Christian era continues: “Let’s repeal Incest laws”

48 hours ago I commented on a post at the Volokh conspiracy on incest saying this:

The fact that a respected lawyer is actually making the case tells me this is already coming down the pike.

And 48 hours later here comes the news from Europe:

The upper house of the Swiss parliament has drafted a law decriminalising sex between consenting family members which must now be considered by the government.

There have been only three cases of incest since 1984.

Switzerland, which recently held a referendum passing a draconian law that will boot out foreigners convicted of committing the smallest of crimes, insists that children within families will continue to be protected by laws governing abuse and paedophilia.

If you are surprised by this you just haven’t been paying attention.
