  • Atheist Quotes

    I have something to say to the religionist who feels atheists never say anything positive: You are an intelligent human being. Your life is valuable for its own sake. You are not second-class in the universe, deriving meaning and purpose from some other mind. You are not inherently evil--you are inherently human, possessing the positive rational potential to help make this a world of morality, peace and joy. Trust yourself.
    Dan Barker

    He that will not reason is a bigot; he that cannot reason is a fool; he that dares not reason is a slave.
    William Drummond

    The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.
    Richard Dawkins

Top Thirteen Prostitutes Of The Bible

In alphabetical order.

1. Gomer was the prostitute Hosea married when god told him to pick a whore for a wife. For some weird reason that shows my warped psyche I am reminded of the song If Ya Wanna Be Happy by Jimmy Soul. [Hosea 1]

2. Israel as said by Jeremiah. [Jeremiah 3:3]

3. Jephthah’s mother [Judges 11:1]

4. Judah is a hooker [Ezekiel 16 and 23]

5. Male prostitutes in the temple. [1 Kings 14:24]

6. Moabite women or the Israelite men? The bible says the men go whoring but the women are or course blamed. [Numbers 25]

7 & 8. My personal favorites and the two who put the ho in the bible. Oholah and her sister Oholibah, the two prostitutes that really made the bible entertaining for 15 year old boys going through puberty. They couldn’t get porn mags so they had this chapter of the bible. [Ezekiel 23]

9. Rahab. Somehow she was honored by being in the lineage of Jesus. Guess god likes prostitutes. Wonder if he gets a discount? [Joshua 2]

10. Tamar, a widow of Er and Onan plays the prostitute to get pregnant by her father-in-law Judah. Again this prostitute is honored by being in the lineage of Jesus and this is not only a prostitute but someone that commits incest [Genesis has 9 other instances of incest]. Guess it was god who said the family that plays together stays together. [Genesis 38]

11 & 12. Two mothers go to Solomon claiming that they are the mother of the newborn baby. Turns out both moms are prostitutes. [1 Kings 3]

13. Didn’t know where to put this since no names were mentioned but the bible made it clear they were women. In a scene that rivaled the first murder dreamed up by Quentin Tarantino in Hostel II and something out of the life of Elizabeth Báthory , when Ahab was killed a bunch of women prostitutes bathed in his blood. [1 Kings 22]

  1. I’ll take your word for it since I have not bothered to count them. What a ridiculous book! And to think there are entire cults based on such dribble.

  2. Interesting… It never occurred to me to count how many prostitutes were in the Bible.

  3. You’re all such intelligent people for having the time to find and make a list of thirteen of the Bible’s prostitutes.

    Your scope of vision is indeed breath taking and I commend you for your efforts. Let’s all ignore the fact that prostitution didn’t start in the last few centuries

    Now I suppose you can go ahead and make a list of 20 of the Bible’s worst cooks as well.

    You’re doing a great service here. Keep swaying the masses to an equal level of enlightenment and maybe we’ll all finally find peace as we laugh and joke about the crucifixion. Perhaps a bit of cards as we sit by a pile of burning Bibles in the winter cold.

    I have great hopes that your children will be as intellectual as you and will find the time to preach more atheism.

    Be who you may be and calm your doubts with your beliefs.

    God bless you, and may you find fulfillment wherever you go.

    • You are being sarcastic and mean spirit… Prostitute is also a human being and if the bible can acknowledge them, why you wanna act so shy and righteous…

      It’s a very interesting research, and all you do is say mean things to other, JC will not allow this behaviour…

      Some people just don’t have a clue, acting so righteous in the name of god, but all they do is the SATAN work…

    • To be honest with you im not reslly sure this guy is going that far…a sin is a sin and you can still be forgiven for those remarks….

  4. Thx, this is actually quite interesting and factually based. Well, referenced. I learned something. Quite helpful for a believer like me actually. 🙂
    I commend you. Only thing is your comments make it more biased and lose credibility. It’s actually not as absurd as you think if you understood and/or believed in a few provable facts about God: He is loving, unbiased, and forgiving. Also, if you have seen “Inception” then you would realize we are kinda in His “dream” right now. When we die, that is when we wake up to reality… Is this true or not? Ask and the answer shall be given to you…

  5. Mary Magdalene ?????????

  6. Notice that all these prostitutes in the Bible return back to God. They’re mentioned, because they have a legacy. They were lost, and then they were found…just like us. As for Israel, they prostituted themselves when they had everything they wanted–God.

    • Therefore I delivered her into the hands of her lovers, the Assyrians, for whom she lusted. 10 They stripped her naked, took away her sons and daughters and killed her with the sword. She became a byword among women, and punishment was inflicted on her.

  7. So, let those who are without sin cast the first stone.

    • It’s a list so get off your holier than thou bullshit.

      • Oh, I think I’ve made a mistake! The comment didn’t intend to criticise your ‘list’. Those women were only minding their business. Now, I feel my previous comment is more appropriate after your accusatory tone. 😛

      • Yet no matter how much you rationalize it or claim they were minding their business, they are still prostitutes. Why do you have such a problem with that?

      • There have been prostitutes throughout history; the Bible covers a wide scope of history; it would be a bit weird if prostitutes were never mentioned like it was a taboo topic that we should pretend did not exist.

        It would be a holier then thou attitude if the Bible presented the lineage of Jesus as all chaste virgins. It is true a man-made narrative may be tempted to not include such women in a lineage, but a truth that God honors the redemptive aspect of these women. God talks about prostitutes in the Bible as real people, focusing on the human element, not as just a disgraceful label as it is used in this list, and as people no more sinful then any of the rest of us. The story of Hosea is a beautiful metaphor that is not afraid of use the absurdity of a husband’s commitment toward an unfaithful prostitute as a metaphor for God’s love. Hard to claim the Bible as a prude book when it uses such an easily offending metaphor for God’s love.

  8. Interesting note, I am only confused about one thing:

    What is your goal with publishing this list?

    • Are you an idiot? The reason is right in the title. Now would you care to enlighten us as to why yolu read and commented on a blog that apparently offended your Christian “morality.”

      • I also would like to know what is the point of the list. And, I would like to thank you for taking the time for making up the list. I often come across things in the Bible that are socking to the moralist, but then I learnt to see the lesson (not the morale) of the story, and I am constantly hoping that I’d not miss the point of these Biblical illustrations in the heat of religious argument.

      • Is there some kind of reason two Christians all of a sudden can’t understand this is a fucking list? BTW, care to enlighten us what the lesson here is besides that prostitution isn’t taboo?

      • God said it would be days like these…………stop picking out what you consider bad and know that all of God’s word is good and an example and warning to us.:)

      • You must have some tremendous feelings of guilt and cognitive dissonance since nobody here said anything about this being a “bad” list but you.

      • you are beyond idiocy.

      • Does the list offend you? If it does, the problem isn’t the list.

  9. Yes, prostitution . . . and incest, and war, and slavery, and deception, and mass murder, and vengeance onto the umpteenth generation, and killing your own children if they talk back to you. You can find all these and more in the Bible; so it Does Not quallify as a book of moral instruction. Those are facts. My opinion is that you must lead the best life you can, but, unfortunately, there’s no single guide: you must work at it throughout your life.

  10. From this point out any reply that doesn’t understand what a list is will be edited to point that out.

  11. The good lord realised his mistakes of promoting war, rape murder incest in the OT, then to atone for it ,was born as a humanbeing and got himself crucified. in the second innings he became the loving forgiving god.Simply just as we evolve god too evolves. till then it suits us to believe in these holey scriptures if we have to carry out killings of fellowhumanbeings as well as loving them as we are doing now

  12. Your knowledge of the Word is brilliant but your wit to me is offensive! I hope you love God I know He loves you and gets where your coming from it doesn’t really matter that I don’t I’m involved in prayer ministry for those in sex trade thanks to you I was able to find biblical examples I needed so thank you!

  13. What was was, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg that got written about…God had mercy on some, which is more than some preachers; and some of the ‘true believers’. Of course it should be preached, it prevents the stoning to death of women…even today, especially today, be it rock or obsolete jailing destruction for a life time’s prison record.
    There is a pile of stones on the ground, for sinners to cast. JC was merciful too. Thanks for the list.

  14. Pretending to be one is being one moron. And she didn’t gain anything??? What was pregnancy asshole? You know the bible as good as most two-year olds.

  15. Oholah is a symbolic name used by Ezekiel to describe Samaria, and Oholibah for Jerusalem. The allegory was part of Ezekiel prophetic work to bring out repentance among Israelites of his day. So both was not human. {also number 2}
    Tamar was not prostitute, or else you would include the woman mentioned by John 8:4.
    If you see the Bible piece-by-piece you won’t understand.
    Try to accept it as a whole.

    • I am well aware who Oholah and Oholibah represent. I never said they were human but they do qualify as prostitutes as they are portrayed in the story. And yes, Tamar played the part of a prostitute in order to deceive her father in law into getting her pregnant. Not only does she qualify as a prostitute but she technically committed incest. As far as the woman in John 8, this is a list of THIRTEEN. Are you able to count?

  16. It is incest regardless of what the fable says. Why do you have such a hard time accepting the idiocy of your bible?

  17. This is the last time I will reply to you and if you post one more piece of nonsense you will be banned from this blog for life. Tamar did get a form of payment. She was IMPREGNATED you moron. And as far as your playing cops stupidity, does playing cops get one shot? If not, you can shove your stupidity up your ass.

    • Oholah and Oholibah prophetically represent Israel and spiritual Israel (America). And there is a difference between a prostitute and a harlot – which is – that a harlot is married whereas a prostitute may not be.

      @noreligion: Why are you so hateful to people? Does namecalling make you feel good or something?

      You call yourself no religion but do you realize that atheism is a religion. All belief systems are of religon. It is only the Bible, the Word of God that is truth. There is a difference! Some food for thought.

      Tamar deliberatley dressed as a harlot because she wanted the inheritance that could only come through Judah beginning with their son Perez and down the line through which David, Jesus and the bride are born. There is always a prophetic reason for everything in the Bible.

      Rahab had the fear of God in her because she had heard of the things He had done and believed in Him. She is in the line of Jesus because she saved the lives of the 2 spies.

      • Why are you Christians so stupid?

        1. Oholah and Oholibah are said to represent Israel and SAMARIA asshole, read your fucking bible.

        2. Atheism is not a belief system and only those idiots that are trying to claim it’s just as irrational as Christianity because it’s a religion think so. Atheism is a lack of belief in a god or gods.

  18. Where was Abraham mentioned that He said to the Shrine Prostitute “you are more rightious than I ?”


  20. Goes to show to not to look down on people.

  21. I think we need to look beyond the name calling and obvious intention of the writer (to disparage the Bible); truth is he (she) ended shooting him (herself) in the foot.

    Because prostitutes are found in the Bible shouldn’t become an issue; it only shows that God does not deal with holy and righteous people. Besides who beside God is holy and righteous? NONE, we are all aspiring to be.

    Of particular importance from this discussion is the fact that those who repented were accepted and used of God; those who didn’t were destroyed. This should be a lesson to us who are alive today.

    Point of correction: Christianity is NOT a religion, Christianity is a WAY of life; No wonder Christians were initially called PEOPLE OF THE WAY (Acts 9:2).

    • Are you too stupid to understand the concept of a list? I hope you realize by you and the other idiot Christians trying to reply with various idiocies that try to justify or rationalize this you are doing nothing but showing that you guys have a severe lack of faith. Imagine, a fucking bible based faith that is rocked by a list of prostitutes from the bible.

  22. Nonreligion, why do you even care what the bible says. Are you using the bible to prove prostitution is ok? If so you must think the bible is a source of truth. If you do not consider it a source of truth, dont reference it so as to grant authority to your own position. You are a hypocrit. You whine “Its just a list!” When you know damn well your whole post reeks of subtext. Stop hiding behind the bible and then acting like the intellectual who is smarter than religion. It sounds like your having trouble getting settled in your own beliefs. If you were convinced you wouldn’t waste your time studying a book you say you dont believe. Go back to your dungeons and dragons and get over your obsession with things you don’t believe.

  23. I came to this site 2 get some education. All I can see is your disrespect. I pray God has mercy on soul. No matter what your beliefs are or aren’t, there is no need to be disrespectful. Question what if your views are wrong? Hope your science gives you an answer…

    • Did you know that lying is a sin according to your religion? Bit to answer your question let me turn it around, what if your wrong? You wasted your life slave to a book not enjoying the only life you’ll have. If I wrong, I lived life free from Bomar to a book and an extremely hateful God but let me ask you one other question. What if along with you (a Christian) came A Muslim and A Hindu asking the exact same question, which one of you is right? You see what you are asking is Pascal’s wager and it has been shown to be unable to do what you think it can.

  24. God will help you and show you mercy to see the light cause darkness has already overtaken your dwelling and you are in darkness. perhaps you want to come out of darkness please call unto Jesus Christ to help you out…

  25. I disagree with your commentary but thank you for your research. It is helpful and all of the sources are in fact in scripture.

  26. Nope….that is why you have to read the new testament. …the old testament is how it was….people also sacrificed animals in the old testament. ..but do you…no? Read the new ted testament and follow it…revelation too…yes there were lots of prostitutes but is not nearly as much as we have TODAY. ..yes sin and demons existed then and they exist now….”my people die by a lack of knowledge”thats in the bible too……

    • Waite….what if your wrong……I rather believe in trinity and have the chance to go to heaven….he has brang you this far….not leave you but to bring you further…..he will never leave you or forsake you…..you are his child and he would never want a part of him to die. …..

    • You have to get an education to understand what a list is….damn moron

      • Im not a moron.I understand you are madd but..its a good thing your still reading your bible…..god is ready whenever you are…..he cant go where he is not invited. …you will be fine. Just trust the lord he will reveal…all if you allow him to……it doesnt matter what you post or what you have done if you repent….you wont feel how you feel anymore…you will know that he loves you…and always have……

      • No Dana, you are a moron.

  27. Waite….what if your wrong……I rather believe in trinity and have the chance to go to heaven….he has brang you this far….not leave you but to bring you further…..he will never leave you or forsake you…..you are his child and he would never want a part of him to die. …..

  28. You just banned yourself Dana.

  29. This was a nice read. It’s also very informative…except for the small jabs which make you sound pretty biased against Christians and the Bible.. kind of shows your hidden agenda in making this list.
    But I have to say, your list has helped me. I was looking for prostitutes in the Bible.

    Also, on Tamar’s issue about the incest…
    It’s not incest when you are in-laws. There has to be a blood (genetic relationship) for it to be called incest. It’s not even considered adultery since she was a widower and Judah’s wife also dead at that time.

    I understand you do your research pretty well from the correct objective info. provided. But I also understand that people don’t bother to do any research every time they make a smart ass comment (like your jab on Tamar’s issue). It kinda makes you sound dumb and idiotic if that’s the case. Kinda destroys the professional wording of this list in my opinion.

  30. I can’t stand religion but I’m in love with Jesus Christ. So you’re kind of right, you have NO NEED FOR RELIGION, neither do I. All we have to do is achnowledge our need for Jesus. That will guarantee our entry into eternal paradise. Study the bible with an open heart. I mean what’s the worst that could happen? You can believe something that is full of good morals and upstanding beliefs and then you die to then realize that it was for no reason and you are reincarnated as a cat or become one with the wind or something. Or on the other hand you can choose to accept salvation and declare Jesus as Lord, believe in Gods word and the day you take your last breath, you are welcomed into eternal paradise as a child of his. Listen, even people who choose not to believe in Jesus understand that there must be life after death. Unfortunately, once this life is over you don’t get a do-over or a chance to change your mind. No matter how much we hate or reject God, He still loves us the way no man can love us. All He wants is for us to live a prosperous life on earth and spend eternity in Heaven.

    God bless you.

  31. Please what about Mary Magdalene- my dictionary says she’s a reformed prostitute. And there was another Mary with her too at the well, what about them/

  32. Watch this to answer your questions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sc9yhzxSj3M

  33. Delilah was purchased to sell out Samson, she was a “pay for Play” actress and schemer, modern day women set men up and they are called prostitutes due to the fact thye have a price. Delilah got paid to act like she was in love. Thats a prostitute

  34. really God as a good plan for us

  35. U need the love of God.that surpasses the knowledge of this world.I Will pray for u in Jesus name.God bless u

  36. Leave the sarcasiim out. Of your mouth about what you think is right about God. Obviously you don’t know. He can use any one any place or any where.

  37. I would like to receive bible verses everyday. I love GOD so much.

  38. wher to dowlaoid ?
