An Atlanta qadesh?: about dogs, homosexuality and religion
What would you think of your pastor if he openly referred to himself as this?
You might be appalled, but that’s how the Rev. Paul Turner, a gay christian pastor in Atlanta identifies himself. In fact, its the title of his blog which he says is the “journey of an inner city open and proud gay pastor.”
Really? proud to call yourself a religious b****? What insanity these people engender while at the same time portraying themselves as followers of Christ who promote inclusion in the church?

Beyond just the disgusting irreverence of the reverend, a much deeper revelation emerges as to why God specifically branded such actions abominations. Its a real time snapshot of the word qadesh in the Old Testament. Is this what the “Rev” Paul Turner is calling himself, an effeminate “temple prostitute”? Per this bible and history site, this was one of the lowest forms of idolatry.
Asherah Queen of Heaven, Ashtoreth, Athirat, Astarte, and Ishtar. Her “male priestesses were known as kelabim, the faithful “dogs” of the Goddess, who practiced divinatory arts, danced in processions, and served as hierodules qedeshim, in the company of other priestesses.
Males priestesses known as dogs? This definition is what commonly defines a female dog.
And just what god is Turner representing? According to 1 Kings 14:24 such actions are called “abominations” and have no connection with anything remotely identified with our God much less his son Jesus Christ.
Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh. James 3:11-12 NKJV
By the way, this is the former pastor of bulletproof ideologist Candace Chellew.
