Incest is considered one of the greatest taboo in the society. my confusion is who should punish a person who is guilty of an incest,the government or religious body?To me it should be the responsibility of the person's religion because the act itself is more of spiritual than human's philosophy.secondly, if a father impregnates his daughter or a son impregnates his mother or a brother impregnates his sister and each of them produces a child which will be more acceptable to the society?
