Not in the Bible, where such a thought would be just as repugnant and
detestable as temple prostitution. As I understand it, this idea is
based on a disputable interpretation of a single inscription from
outside the land of Israel. Some people had strange religious ideas
then, as now, but you should quote as unqualified fact neither
everything you read on the Internet nor everything you read on one-off
