Grandma and Grandson and Their Incestuous Affair

Another Vexing Moment

Over the weekend I was hit with the following news headline…

Indiana: Grandma & Grandson Find Each Other, Fall In Love, Become Lovers And Pay $54,000 To A Surrogate Mom

I could not believe what I read and had to read it again just to make sure I was not reading it wrong.  Nope, that is what I read.

I started to scan the article and read the following…

 

 A 72-YEAR-OLD granny is having an incestuous affair with her own GRANDSON – and the pair are set to have a BABY, according to reports.

Grey-haired Pearl Carter has allegedly began a bizarre relationship with her 26-year-old grandchild Phil Bailey.

Pearl, from Indiana, is now using her pension to pay $54,000 (£35,000) to a surrogate mother so they can have a child, say reports in New Idea magazine in New Zealand. (1)

It was one more of those “vexing” moments.

Here is how Webster’s dictionary defines Vex…

Vex
VEX, v.t. [L. Vexo.]

1. To irritate; to make angry by little provocations; a popular use of the word.

2. To plague; to torment; to harass; to afflict.

I know that all of you have had these moment where you thought things have really gotten bad just to find out that something else rises from the muck and attains an even higher level of filth and debauchery.

Man left to his own devises never fails. The sinful nature of man will always seek out the bottom of the barrel slime and wallow in it. That is until he/she gets tired of that and seek out even deeper form of depravity.

How far will it go?

Only God knows.

I wonder what the people in the Indiana town think of this?

I have done a search and it is amazing the comments when I ran across a Yahoo Answers page.

KM&G  – Why should they be prosecuted? They aren’t hurting anyone else.
They aren’t making babies with his sperm/ her egg, so…

T- Licious – This isn’t TECHNICALLY or BIOLOGICALLY incest since they used a donor egg and a surrogate.

Mommy of 5 – I think the difference is (even though to me it’s still gross) is that these 2 people never met until very recently, so they didn’t have that life long bond of grandparent to grandchild.

Not sure if they have laws against it or not. Wouldn’t change anything if there was a law. No reason to take up prison cells over it. In my state there is a WAITING list for jail they are so full.

I don’t think they should be able to raise the child as mom and dad though. That would be beyond confusing for the child.

Now there were other people who objected to this incestuous relationship also and voiced their opinions.

But what amazes me is that nowhere in the press or even in blogs have I seen any Christians stand up against this. Now I have not scoured the bowels of the Internet, but doing a quick Google search has not brought up anything.

Now knowing that there is nothing new under the sun, Paul had a similar problem, but this time it was taking place in the church or Corinth.

1 Corinthians  5:1 -13 (KJV)  It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.

2  And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.

3  For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,

4  In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,

5  To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

6  Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?

7  Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

8  Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

9  I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:

10  Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

11  But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

12  For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

13  But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

But what is worse is that the “world” gives people like this an out, by not making it their problem and thus not being accountable to God.

Pearl said: “I am finally going to be a mum and not forced to give up my child. Phil’s going to be a great dad. I never in a million years thought at 72 I’d be ‘pregnant’ and in love with my grandson.

“I make no apologies and I believe God’s given me a second chance.”

Pearl says the relationship is not wrong after a friend told her about Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA) syndrome, which occurs when close relatives meet as adults and find they are attracted to each other.

She said: “I could now understand my feelings and realize they weren’t wrong.” (1)

 So is that what we are calling incest today.. Genetic Sexual Attraction? Gee, when you hear it that way, it really does not sound that bad.

In reading Leviticus 18, we see that incest is called “wickedness.”

Leviticus 18:6-19 tells us of incest, which is then followed by sodomy.

Leviticus 18:22 (KJV)  Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

And then followed by bestiality…

Leviticus 18:23 (KJV)  Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. 

In fact God calls all these acts abominations…

Leviticus 18:26 (KJV)  Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:

Leviticus 18:27 (KJV)  For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;

And the punishment for committing these vile acts…

Leviticus 18:29 (KJV)  For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.

Leviticus 18:30 (KJV)  Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.

Folks, it amazes me the extent that this “Christian nation” has sunk down  to. There are days where I think to myself that it would be great to just move to some tropical island and open a taco stand. 

But it is funny, no matter what, I still think that no matter where I am, I could not stop shouting from the top of the walls.

The enemy wants to get us down, but what we need to do is fight back and say “No More!”

We as Christians have given up to much of the “high ground.” We need to return to the ways of the Lord, his statutes, morals and simply obey His Word.

We are living in the last days of the last days,  we have a job to do and we have been lax at that job. The time is now to start boldly standing for the Lord and proclaiming HIM, The King of Kings. 

During the revolutionary war there was a popular saying, that was “No King but King Jesus!”

We need to return to serving the King and stop trying to be relevant to the World and her ways. We are to be the salt and light. We need to stand and expose this filth and debauchery instead of letting it stand and rotting our nation from it’s very core.
