“I have no experience with incest…We had heard a few stories where brothers and sisters were completely, absolutely in love with one another. You know what? This whole movie is about judgment, and lack of it, and doing what you want. Who gives a [redacted] if people judge you? I’m not saying this is an absolute but in a way, if you’re not having kids — who gives a [redacted]? Love who you want. Isn’t that what we say? Gay marriage — love who you want? If it’s your brother or sister it’s super-weird, but if you look at it, you’re not hurting anybody except every single person who freaks out because you’re in love with one another.”The sad thing is that he makes sense. If we accept as normal homosexuality and homosexual marriage, there is no reason to deny relationships between siblings or for that matter their pets. Romans 1:24 – 31 supports this. It is a natural progression, a slippery slope, once you abandon God and His standards, there is no rational reason not to descend to the depths Paul describes.
Cassavetes movie and attitude should be regarded as a wakeup call. We must prep our children for the onslaught of depravity that will come from our culture’s ride down this slippery slope. Further, we have to be about rescuing those whom we can from the fall.
