So incest and pedophilia belong to the fifth level of fornication. Do I understand this correctly?

Thank you; Reply

It’s obviously prohibited and detestable on all levels! Reply

in response to Rabbi Raskin:

Thank you, Rabbi.
I agree with you, I was only asking in regard to these six levels of adultery.
Still one more question: You said that men sin because of the spirit of folly. But the prophet Hosea said: for the ruach zenunim hath caused them to err, and they have played the zonah, forsaking Eloheihem. As we see this spirit of whoredom literally rules in central American countries as Guatemala etc. where the custom of the first night with an virgin is stronger than the prohibition of the law which protects the girls up to 15 years of age. So may I ask you: do you think that any sin begins with first with the spirit of folly as the fruit of disregarding the 1th commandment of the Torah? Thank you very much. For I see many countries in the world are truly ruled even taken over by the spirit of whoredom.

God bless you. Reply
