Watch: Republican Dennis Prager: “There’s No Secular Argument Against Adult Incest”



DENNIS PRAGER (HOST): Just this one verse that men should not wear women’s clothing or women men’s clothing. So, let’s go to my motto, preferring clarity to agreement. Either the Bible’s right or the left is right. They can’t both be right.

That’s why you can’t be a serious Jew or Christian and be a leftist. You can be a liberal, you can be a conservative, but you can’t be a leftist. Just on this issue alone. You just would have to say the Bible’s wrong and you’re right.

There’s no secular argument against adult incest. Brother and sister want to make love, what’s your argument? That they’re going to produce mentally retarded offspring? That’s nonsense. It takes many generations of inbreeding to do that. There is no secular argument against adult consensual incest. There is a religious argument – sex cannot enter family life. It’s a big taboo.

See, people think we can live without the greatest source of wisdom and morality in the history of the world, the Bible. That’s what they think. Even some secular conservatives think that. They don’t realize that they’re living on the fumes of the Judeo-Christian value system. But if you ultimately extract those flowers from the soil that nurtured them, those flowers will wither and die. I don’t want to see that happen.
