Worship of Heavenly Bodies
Pages 13

The worship of the sexualorgans or of the sexual powers, was a low and rather unrefined method of worship; that it was practiced innocently, and without thought of doing something improper, does not make it, as some authors claim, a divine theory, nor was the indulging in coition in the temples a divine act, although it was a perfectly proper physiological act in its proper time and place. Primitive man, when this worship prevailed, was but little above the animal, like a buH or a dog, who still" innocently" and "without any idea of impropriety" mates with a cow, or a biteh, as the case may be. But that does not make the act of the bull or the dog a "divine act."
