"And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God"
-- Micah 6:8

"The duty of the prosecutor is to seek justice, not merely to convict."
-- American Bar Association Standard 3-1.2(c)

"There may be a legitimate diversity of opinion even among Catholics about waging war and applying the death penalty, but not however with regard to abortion and euthanasia."
--Pope Benedict XVI, June 2004

But then again, that may just be a burgeois value judgment. A German brother and sister have enlisted the aid of a crimlaw prof (surprise) to argue that the German anti-incest law under which they were prosecuted is a "breach of their civil rights" and a "relic of the past."

They want the state to acknowledge their "right" to have sex and get married. Two of their four children have handicaps, but there's, like, no proof that the handicaps are attributable to screwed up genetics.
