Columbia Professor Charged With Incest – Challenged Morality Of Skeptics

David Epstein 2008 –

Republicans have become not just an ineffectual out-of-power party, but a parody of an ineffectual out-of-power party, spouting mean-sounding nonsense on major policy issues (“Government spending doesn’t work!” “There is no such thing as global warming!” “Hunger is a good motivator!”), and taking hypocrisy in their personal lives to new levels of self-indulgent weirdness (“It wasn’t just an affair, it was a love story!“). It’s as if they’re trying to get a head start on another 40 years in the wilderness.

David Epstein 2010 –

The lawyer representing David Epstein, the Columbia professor accused of sleeping with his daughter, recently spoke out about his client’s controversial case.

Epstein was charged last week with one-count of third-degree incest for what was allegedly a consensual three-year sexual relationship with his 24-year-old daughter.

Epstein’s lawyer, Matthew Galluzzo, gave comment to ABCNews.com:

“Academically, we are obviously all morally opposed to incest and rightfully so,” Galluzzo said. “At the same time, there is an argument to be made in the Swiss case to let go what goes on privately in bedrooms.”

“It’s OK for homosexuals to do whatever they want in their own home,” he said. “How is this so different? We have to figure out why some behavior is tolerated and some is not.”

  1. Epstein was charged last week with one-count of third-degree incest for what was allegedly a consensual three-year sexual relationship with his 24-year-old daughter

    Though this makes one feel like puking, it is a little more common than people know. I think the statistics show that there are more men that want to marry their daughters than there are gay men that want to marry a man.

    But I still feel like puking.

    But back to the point of the post, I guess morality is a relative to some people. It’s easy to say others aren’t moral but you are. It’s different when it’s you for some. In this case maybe his finding ‘morality’ to use against ‘skeptics’ was a case of projection.

    We are all going to die! And it’s all the fault of straight, white males who drive pickups, beat their wives and vote Republican.

  3. suyts says:

    Ish!

    But the money quote is the last sentence.
    “We have to figure out why some behavior is tolerated and some is not.”

    Its called societal benefit. Morality laws weren’t invented by some Bible thumping republican. The lawyer even referenced homosexuality. While both are no-no’s in the Book, one can easily look to other societies and see both are no-no’s without the guidance of the Bible. Why? In both cases, there is easily seen a harm to society if such behavior was frequently engaged.

    First, reproduction. Every organism must reproduce to remain. The genetics must have a positive movement. And disease cannot be very prevalent.

    Personally, I couldn’t care less about what a person does to get their rocks off. (Although, I’m fairly repulsed by the implications of the above story.) But there is a societal need that requires proper mating habits for our species to remain viable.

    To recap, if most engage in incest our species dies. If most engage in homosexuality, our species dies.

      To understand where Epstein’s lawyer is coming from, you need to be familiar with the Supreme Court’s decision on Lawrence v Texas, which struck down some Texas anti-sodomy statutes as unconstitutional. The majority decision in Lawrence basically said that sex between consenting adults is protected under the constitution’s unwritten right to privacy and government attempts to regulate private sexual behavior are therefore unconstitutional.

      Using Lawrence as a precedent, a sympathetic judge could easily find New York’s anti-adult incest law unconstitutional.

      • Scott says:

        Thanks for the info. I can’t find anything untrue about this statement:

        Using Lawrence as a precedent, a sympathetic judge could easily find New York’s anti-adult incest law unconstitutional.

        and that makes me very sad, and scared.

        -Scott

  4. Wow. This is so disturbing. And I’m not even scratching the surface of what sick man wants to bang his daughter. I’m more worried about the daughter. This is the ultimate “Daddy Issue.”

    • Brian G Valentine says:

      Me too. A very sad thing. But pervert behaviour isn’t something totally foreign to us,

      – is it, Mr Gore?

      If this was some “denialist” tell me this wouldn’t be front page liberal media news and the subject of innumerable editorials.

  5. truthsword says:

    All I am going to say about this is, I remember people said gay marriage was a slipperly slope, well here this lawyer is doing just that. Using the “if it’s okay for them why not us?” argument. It is a slippery slope and it will continue to open up more sickness as accepted behavior. If not this case, some judge somehwere else.

    • I think the difference is that scientists can provide data to show that incest leads to more mental illness among participants and any children created from incestuous relationships are more likely to have serious genetic diseases and deformities. Throughout history, incest has led to some seriously deformed royals (think Charles II of Spain who had both physical and mental handicaps and such severe prognathism that he could not chew). So the likely of incest becoming mainstream is much less likely than homosexuality simply because we can prove more serious consequences than just moral ones.

      • Scott says:

        But how long before it becomes legalized with the stipulation that all conceived babies from the union must be aborted? Solves the “problem” you mention above.

        -Scott

      • 正教会の智 says:

        Re: “scientists can provide data to show that incest leads to more mental illness among participants”

        1. Scientists can “prove” just about anything.

        2. Queerness is a mental illness that leads to further mental illness. Thats why it’s queer.

        Re: “any children created from incestuous relationships are more likely to have serious genetic diseases and deformities”

        So you mean barren and queer incest is okay?

      • @whatever those characters mean:

        This isn’t about what I think. It’s about what a judge will think.

        I’m not passing judgment on homosexuality at all, one way or another. I personally do not agree with homosexuality in my own life, but that’s no one else’s business, and I don’t intend to make it their business.

        I’m simply saying that there are more tangible consequences (beyond AIDS, of course) to incest than there are to homosexuality, and therefore it is less likely for a judge to deem it constitutionally acceptable.

        And you’re right, scientists can provide data that “prove” just about anything. But a judge has to take a scientist for their word and ignore any possible bias or hidden agenda of the scientist because the judge can’t do the scientist’s job any better than the scientist.

        Again, it’s not about what you or I think or even what’s right. It’s about the interpretation of a single judge (ignoring the appeals process), and you have to consider what impacts the judge the most, which is scientific and historical data. I’m sorry if you don’t like it, but that’s the way it works.

        In a mixture of Japanese alphabets, it means Satoshi, of the Greek Orthodox Church and I think Satoshi is just a prankster and not a funny one at that

  6. Baa Humbug says:

    I too don’t give a chit what adults do behind closed doors. But this didn’t stay behind closed doors did it? It got out somehow and now society has to deal with it, it can’t just pretend it doesn’t know about it.

    This bloke now has to live with the ignominy (if he didn’t already) and worse of all, the girl has to live with it. Very sad, very very sad.

  7. Andy Weiss says:

    This statement “if most engage in homosexuality our species will die”. Is that supposed to mean that most people are latent homosexuals? That if homosexuality is tolerated, most people would not have an attraction to women? That is totally absurd and homophobic.

    • Scott says:

      I don’t think that’s what it meant. What it means is simple and straightforward – if the majority of the population were homosexuals, they would not reproduce and the species would die out. You could say the same thing about nuns.

      In reality, it probably wouldn’t work because the minority would still reproduce…so there would still be a population.

      -Scott

  8. Andy Weiss says:

    Scott,

    Unfortunately, that same statement has been repeatedly spewed by bigots over the years in their quest to keep gays a persecuted underclass and keep homophobic sanctions and statutes in place.

    I’m not saying that the person who posted the remark is a bigot, and he is no doubt a good person, but I’ve heard many so many bigots make that statement over the years that I felt I needed to respond.

    Most people are straight and the species would never die even if homosexuality was glorified (as in ancient Greece), so why make the statement to begin with? The only reason is to make it sound like homosexuals are “unnatural” and a menace to society.

    • 正教会の智 says:

      “Homophobia” is Jew-speak.

      Homosexuality was never glorified in ancient Greece. They had contempt for queer-boys. They were supposed to put up a fight before getting penetrated unnaturally or pawed over by some old pervert.

      Re: “[you] make it sound like homosexuals are “unnatural””

      What else would they be?

  9. 正教会の智 says:

    Jew Law & Queers

    Jew Law forbids mishkav zakhar, the homosexual act.

    A mishkav zakhar between two Jew man-queers is a to’evah, an abhorrent thing, and the offending queers must be slaughtered. This is Jew law, devoid of Jesus the Christ’s mercy; devoid of Logos.

    “Do not lie with a male as one lies with a woman; it is an abhorrence.” (Leviticus 18:22)
    “If a man lies with a male as one lies with a woman, the two of them have done an abhorrent thing; they shall be put to death—their bloodguilt is upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13)

    The identification of male rape-queers as sodomites derives from the name of the Jew town Sodom, in which the town’s men-queers attempted to rape visitors to Lot’s house (Genesis 19).

    Furthermore, Jews, confusing themselves with Israelites, cite Deuteronomy 23:18:

    “No Israelite woman shall be a cult prostitute, nor shall any Israelite man be a cult prostitute.”

    Some pharisees/rabbis argued that queers must be slaughtered because procreation is impossible. Others define defined the mishkav zakhar as simply intrinsically unnatural.

    Jew Bar Kapparah, in the Jews’ Satanic Talmud makes a play on the word to’evah (abomination), claiming that it means to’eh atah ba (“you go astray because of it”).

    The Jew-elders Tosefot and the Asheri comment on this passage that it refers to the common man-queer habit of abandoning his wife and family to pursue carnal lusts and/or effeminate role-play with other man-queers, thereby undermining and perverting the Jew family, thereby preventing the Jew from achieving global dominance.

    Pharisaic/rabbinic literature assumes that The Jew is not in any way naturally a queer, but must be perverted into becoming one.

    In the Jews’ Satanic Mishnah, Pharisee/Rabbi Judah argues with the Jew “Sages”:

    “R. Judah said: A bachelor should not herd animals, nor should two bachelors share a single blanket. The Sages permit it.”

    But the halakhah follows the Jew Sages, because, supposedly, “Israel [which Jews confuse with Jewry] is not suspected of homosexuality.”

    In the Shulhan Arukh, a male Jew is precautioned against be alone with another man, because of lewdness “in our times.”

    The Zionist pharisee/rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook, the first chief rabbi in Jew-Occupied Palestine, in response to a rumour that a certain shohet (ritual killer) had committed a queer act, declared that the shohet should keep his position, because it was possible that he might have since secretly repented of his queerness. So Pharisee/Rabbi Kook clearly considered ass-faggotry as an volitional act which one ought to repent of.

    The Satanic Talmud forbids lesbo-queers from marrying Kohenites:

    “R. Huna taught, Women who have sex one with the other are forbidden to marry a Kohen.”

    In spite of this, the Halakhah rejects Jew Rav Huna’s teaching.

    The mega-Jew Maimonides ruled that lesbo-queers must be merely flagellated.

    The lesser punishment for lesbo-queerism may be because the lesbo-queer spills no allegedly “precious” Jew-seed, or it may be because Jew “priests” get off on watching their hos work on other hos.

    Jews, Queers, Queerness, Cash, Jew-Think, Jew-Speak, “Homophobia”, and Pornography as Jewish sacramental, onanistic, self-fetishizing, self-loathing self-worship

    The word “Homophobia” was coined by the queer Jew Talmudic imagist Alvin Goldstein in his Screw magazine of 1969.05.23, to refer to normal men’s alleged “fear” that others might think they are abnormal if they get excited watching a man have sex with a woman. It was a Jew-ploy to get men to accept hard-core porn as normal and give Porn-Jews money to further pervert them.

    (The Jew Goldstein also, by-the-way, helped propagate the Holyhoax by publishing a cartoon in which the Pillsbury Doughboy shoves a Jew into an oven.)

    The Jew Goldstein’s Milky Way Productions went into bankruptcy in 2004. His Florida mansion was sold in order to pay his debts. He served time in Rikers Island after he published a former employee’s telephone number in his Talmudic magazine and encouraged readers to call her. He then received three years’ probation for abusing his third wife, and was arrested for shoplifting. In 2005 he was homeless until his friend, the Jew magician, pornographer and Rosenbaumer Penn Jillette, paid the rent on an apartment for him.

    In 2005, the Jew Goldstein talked about how his estranged son Jordan had died in a car crash. In fact, Jew Jordan Goldstein is all too alive, and works at the more mainstream Jewish racket of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz law firm in New York City. Jew Alvin Goldstein plagiarized the fake Negro Jew Asa Yoelson (Jew Al Jolson)/Jew Neil Diamond’s Jazz Singer “I Have No Son” shtick, after his son Jordan dis-invited Jew Goldstein senior from Jew Goldstein junior’s graduation from Harvard Law School, which Jew Goldstein senior and thousands of whores had paid for.

    In 2006, the Jew Goldstein released an autobiography co-written with fellow Jew Josh Alan Friedman, entitled I, Goldstein: My Screwed Life.

    The Jew Goldstein ran for president in 2008, taking a few Jew/pervert votes away from Obama. Unlike Obama, the Jew Goldstein was open about his homo-queerness (after years of denying it, and accusing men who didn’t want to look at porn of being queer), and claimed to be, “the first presidential candidate to admit to sucking cock.” (No wonder Puppet Clinton was driven to look for love, of a sort, between chubby Monica Lewinsky’s eager Jewess lips.)

    In his book XXX-Communicated: A Rebel Without a Shul, the Jew Luke Ford writes that when he asked the Jew Goldstein why so many Jews are pornographers, Goldstein responded, “The only reason that Jews are in pornography is that we think that God sucks. When the Jew Ford asked, “Do you believe in God?”, the Jew Goldstein said, in true Talmudic fashion, “I believe in me. I’m God. Fuck God.”

    The Kabbalistic Jew witch doctor George Weinberg used the Jew Goldstein’s neologism in his 1972 Jew-book Society and the Healthy Homosexual to describe an alleged medical phobia: “a fear of homosexuals which seemed to be associated with a fear of contagion, a fear of reducing the things one fought for — home and family. It was a religious fear and it had led to great brutality as fear always does.” Such is the sick stuff of Jew-Voodoo.
