Incest in the Bible?

Here’s a challenge.

Imagine you had to present a biblical argument against monogamous, consensual incest yet in favour of monogamous, consensual same-sex relationships*. Could any of our liberal readers do it? If so, please have a go in the comments below. Be warned though, we will expect logical consistency. For example, if you argue that incest should be prohibited because of genetic issues (which is an argument from nature, not the Bible) you should be prepared to be open to a natural law argument against same-sex activity.

Go to it!

* Let’s just get the rider over and done with – I am not advocating incest, rather I’m interested whether one consensual and monogamous relationship can be opposed whilst another argued for.
