Was the first Temple Prostitute a man or a woman?

http://christianity-revealed.com...

Religion was invented to control reproduction and sex within finite living environments. The word we have coined as "God" was invented and his priest worked for the King. The King ruled all things including sexual mores, and ethical customs and fashions of the population through the temples. He had to because his kingdom was wrestled from sand and sweat and his resources were finite.

The king had to appease the natural desires of all of his people somehow and still maintain the population at the proper sustainable number. No exceptions. He was the only King the people would ever know and sin in reproductive terms meant death at his hands. That is the only time death and sexual sin should be connected for all of those who think that a benevolent God would ever punish more than an eye for an eye. The wages for any other sin is definitely not death. That would be an injustice and a King or God would never do such. That is why he enforced chastity as an extra live baby, --- meant someone else had to die.

Thus was the oldest profession born. The temple prostitute. Male and female. Male first and then later, female. Male first is likely because of the armies that had to be maintained. After all, women were chattel and male bonding is what kept the city alive. This is not to say that there was no love between man and wife or that she was not equal in any way. Sanctity says that the King ruled only for woman"s sake because his queen was the womb of his seed.

The temple prostitutes were well respected and accepted as just another variant of sexual delight by all. After all, most of these prostitutes were likely the Kings children, males and females, and they performed a vital service to the city state.

Do you think the first temple prostitute was a man or a woman?

Well, it's not really true. The author you're quoting did quite a shoddy job if you look at some of the rebuttals.

Plus, the whole point of the "don't lay with another man" bit of the OT was geared towards the kind of temple prostitution that was common among idolaters during the time when the Jews first came to Egypt.

All religions are basically focused on an idol. To revere as religions do, anything from a figure to books or animals or even ideas is idol worship.

This guy has the right idea for God but then falls into idol worship of bible God himself even as he warns us not to.
