Deuteronomy and homosexuality

DR. HACHAM ISAAC SAASOON: What Does Deuteronomy Say about Homosexuality? (TheTorah.com).
“Let there be no kadesh among the sons of Israel. You shall not bring the fee of a harlot or the pay of a kelev (dog?) into the house of YHWH” (Deut 23:18-19).
It is not certain that this passage refers to homosexual prostitution. But if it does, Dr. Saassoon draws out some significant implications.
