Let me just say that this post is in my opinion a
very serious misreading of Judaism in the Second
Temple Period and Hebrew Bible texts, and it is in
fact this gross misreading that influences the
conclusion that KOINHS in this passage is to be read
as "profane".

If the original poster or anyone else is willing to
discuss it offlist, feel free to contact me.
