There's always an exception

Life is weird because it seems that any moral value will eventually be challenged by a human circumstance that defies it whether the commandment against lying meets a Nazi asking someone if he knows where any Jews might be hiding or the case of incest when a brother and sister meet unknowing they are related, marry and have four children and are sent to jail even though SCOTUS says,

"The state cannot demean their existence or control their destiny by making their private sexual conduct a crime. Their right to liberty under the Due Process Clause gives them the full right to engage in their conduct without intervention of the government."

Jeff Jacoby tells the story at Townhall.
