Hollywood director says incest is fine

“In a world without God, everything is permitted.” -Fyodor Dostoyevsky

We warned you!

The approval of gay same-sex marriage is a slippery slope. With it, the door is opened to the legitimation of other social taboos.

Earlier this month, I posted on Brazil recognizing a polygamous civil union of a man and two women. Now, a Hollywood director is voicing his support of incest.

Nick Cassavetes, the director of the romantic movie, The Notebook, and son of the late John Cassavetes, says he doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with incest, comparing it to being gay, and that we should all just “love who [sic] you want.”

Open-minded: Filmmaker Nick Cassavetes admitted in an interview that he thinks incest should be accepted the same way gay marriage isOpen-minded & neck-tattooed Nick Cassavetes

Victoria Wellman reports for the UK’s Daily Mail, Sept. 10, 2012, that in an interview about his new movie, Yellow, Nick Cassavetes defended the movie’s “heroine” Mary’s affair with her brother.

Although has has no personal experience with incest, Cassavetes says he’s not in a position to condemn incest and compares it to gay marriage.

Yellow stars Cassavetes’ ex-wife Heather Wahlquist, who plays Mary, a woman addicted to pain-killers who loses her teaching job in Oklahoma. Cassavetes explains a “tender and affecting” scene in which Mary goes to visit her brother in prison:

“We started thinking about [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 shit 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 damn? 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 movie took three years to make owing to recurring funding problems and was finally finished with Cassavetes’ winnings at the casino.

“During the next hundred years, the question for those who love liberty is whether we can survive the most insidious and duplicitous attacks from within, from those who undermine the virtues of our people, doing in advance the work of the Father of Lies. “There is no such thing as truth,” they teach even the little ones. “Truth is bondage. Believe what seems right to you. There are as many truths as there are individuals. Follow your feelings. Do as you please. Get in touch with your self. Do what feels comfortable.” Those who speak in this way prepare the jails of the twenty-first century. They do the work of tyrants.” ― Michael Novak

French Cardinal Philippe Barbarin of Lyon warns that the legalization of same-sex marriage would manifest a “breakdown in society,” and predicts that polygamy and incest could eventually be legalized. For that, Barbarin is being blasted by Bertrand Delanoë, the openly homosexual mayor of Paris.

Delanoë said: “It is very shocking and even surprising coming from him, because he is someone I consider a wise man. I don’t know what came over him, he flipped his lid a little bit and what he said was downright ugly.”

Someone should send this post to Cardinal Barbarin, and Barbarin should demand an apology from Mayor Delanoë. All Barbarin did was speak the truth.

  2. most of this comes from Hollywood, they think that the more they show it the more people will become to see that it is okay. The sheeple comes to the wolves .Shows like Modern Family and the new one called the New Normal (notice the liberal meaning ) . We watched Modern Family sometimes, the show would be just as successful without the gays.We no longer will watch it and certainly will not the New Normal . It’s is a shame that so much violence, nudity, gay, brutality against women on these shows is terrible, they cannot say that this is a conservative thing against women. Yes,GOD will intervene and remedy the sin and incest is one of the worst.

  3. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this informative post. Frankly, I am not astounded at all. We knew it was coming and it is only logical to conclude that this would happen given the rumber stamp on homosexual sexual activities.

    The father of lies, Satan, has tempted society into absolute secularism and to deny Truth, to deny Jesus, Our Lord. Accordingly, everything is all right, according to each man’s definition for himself or herself. What do you expect? Truly, truly Satanic! Humankind will destroy itself if it does not repent and convert!

  5. There are good reasons not to lay with your sister, brother, or anyone close to you in your blood line. Islam where they do allow closely related people to marry and produce deformed and mentally impaired children is good reason. They are an irrational people. The premise that incest is not a bad things is almost as bad as sex with children. Children are not emotionally equipped for it, and worst of all their little bodies are not ready for it.
    How can anyone possible justify either of these things? There’s a sickness that is sweeping the country and it cannot be allowed to go on.

I think Hollywood is reaching new depths in depravity for shock value, but we, as a whole, have become so accustomed to so much crap, it’s forcing them to dig deeper & deeper…maybe they’ll reach hell that much sooner, and we can get back some decent movies and tv shows.

  11. Someone once said, “Civilization never stands still. It either moves forward or backwards”. The Egyptian Pharoahs married their sisters. They had numerous concubines, but only the Pharoah’s sister could be the Queen and only her child could become the Pharoah. The ancient Romans practiced pederasty. Now people today think these practices are OK. I wonder what kind of world we will have in the future when all of our moral values have been abandoned?

  12. The sexual revolution, we were told, was fine and dandy and no harm would come of it. Well, we’ve come this far, and the whole culture has been trashed. College students are already practicing polygamy, even if they’re still single. And I fear even more degradation is yet to come. Where this ends is anyone’s guess.

    • Steven, what is frightening is how quickly everything unravels. The sexual revolution began in the 1960s. 50 years later, gay marriage, incest, “normalizing” pedophilia are openly advocated. As you said, where this ends is anyone’s guess….

  13. More and more these Hollywierdos are showing themselves for what at first only a few knew, but now the multitudes know. This Cassavetes needs an instance in his own brood where son and daughter incest one another as Gran’pappy (or Unkie) Nick takes pictures to show to the child born of it all– at perhaps a birthday celebration. The guy is, as they say in Brooklyn (from what I hear tell), a total wackjob.

    • The better question to ask is “Have you read the Old Testament?” For surely if you had, then you would know that although the OT contains accounts of incest, that’s not the equivalent of the OT approving of incest. But since you’re using the OT as an authority, then I’m sure you agree with and approve of God’s destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah for the two cities’ moral depravity in Genesis 19: “Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.”

      But then I read your self-description in your blog’s “About”, the URL of which you so kindly embedded in your name, and then the proverbial lightbulb lit up above my head. You wrote: “I assigned myself the role of Lot’s wife, because her behavior seemed the most human, the most sinful, and therefore closest to mine.”

        • It is important to distinguish between incestuous relationships prior to God commanding against them (Leviticus 18:6-18), and incest that occurred after God’s commands had been revealed. Until God commanded against it, it was not incest. It was just marrying a close relative. It is undeniable that God allowed incest in the early centuries of humanity. If Adam and Eve were indeed the only two human beings God created, their sons and daughters would have had no other choice but to marry and reproduce with their siblings and close relatives. The second generation would have had to marry their cousins, just as after the flood the grandchildren of Noah would have had to intermarry amongst their cousins. The reason incest is so strongly discouraged in the world today is the understanding that reproduction between closely related individuals has a much higher risk of causing genetic abnormalities. In the early days of humanity, though, this was not a risk due to the fact that the human genetic code was relatively free of defects.

          It seems, then, that by the time of Moses, the human genetic code had become polluted enough that close intermarriage was no longer safe. So, God commanded against sexual relations with siblings, half-siblings, parents, and aunts/uncles. It was not until many centuries later that humanity discovered the genetic reason that incest is unsafe and unwise.

  15. Kate McGinness, you don’t know what you are talking about. You state in your blog, “About,” that: “I assigned myself the role of Lot’s wife, because her behavior seemed the most human, the most sinful, and therefore closest to mine.” Indeed and in fact, Lot and his wife and family were saved from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah because they were good and faithful to God, and because of God’s relationship with Abraham. (Please see Gen. 19:1-29.) The angels directed them out of the sinful city of Sodom and Gomorrah so that they would be safe, commanding them not to look back while Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed. Genesis 19:26 tells us, “But Lot’s wife looked back, and she was turned into a pillar of stone.” Lot’s wife disobeyed the command of the angel. Nevertheless, Ms. McGinness, since you want to model your life after sinners (you are communicating a false guise of attempted humility) you should choose Jezebel, the wife of Ahab, king of Israel, who denied the one true God and served Baal and worshiped him (1 Kgs. 16:31). Some of her sinful accomplishments, in part, you would appreciate, including setting about butchering the prophets of Yahweh (1 Kgs. 18: 3,4), and arranging for the death of Naboth. Indeed and in fact, her sins and Ahab’s sins were so great, that Elijah went down at Yahweh’s command to announce to Ahab the end of his house, and that dogs would devour Jezebel in the field of Jezreel (1 Kgs. 21:1-26). This prophecy was verified since whe was trampled by horses and the dogs devoured her. (2 Kgs 9:30-37). There you go Kate, a perfect model for you, a sinner to admire since she is so “human.”.

    The fact is that we are all sinners; all human beings, so what is your point? We sin, we pick up ourselves and try again to be close to Our Lord, the One, True God and abide by His commandments. Those of us, like the good and holy Dr. Eowyn, who speak and live the Truth, acknowledging what is good and what is evil and not confusing them, realizing our own sinfulness, work on our actual lives and our relationship with God. What can be more “human” that that?
