Here it comes, folks.
Those who oppose same-sex marriage are beginning to lick their chops over the story of a New Mexico mother and son who’ve entered into a love affair.
Monica Mares is 36; her son Caleb Peterson is 19. She gave her son up for adoption when he was a baby. Now they’ve reconnected, only the love they express for each other is, um, a different kind of love.
It’s not a mother-son love. It’s of the extremely intimate variety.
The law calls it incest. It’s also illegal under New Mexico statutes.
There’s actually a new name for it now: genetic sexual attraction. Mom and son, though, both face potential prison time if they’re convicted of incest, given that her son is now an adult and is supposedly capable of making his own decisions.
Well, folks, Caleb Peterson has made a really bad one here. So has his mother.
Is there any symmetry between what’s happening in Clovis, N.M., with this “odd couple” and what happens all over the world when people of the same gender are attracted to each other?
Not one bit.
The only possible link would be if a father had a sexual relationship with his son, or a mother with her daughter.
Just as love is love — as the mantra goes in the LGBT community — then incest is incest.
The first relationship is legal under the law. The other one is not.
