YOUNG ISRAEL rabbi broadcasts "Torah does NOT prohibit prostitution"

The excommunicated (click to view) spiritual leader of YOUNG ISRAEL Aish of Las Vegas publicly presented his views on what the Torah says. Listen to this YOUNG ISRAEL "rabbi's" distortion of the Torah on his Feb 27, 2011 radio broadcast on KDWN, especially his interpretation of pasuk 23:18 in Sefer Devarim, Parshas Ki Seitze at the 10 minute point of the broadcast. [Click here to hear the broadcast -->]

A year previously on his Feb 14, 2010 KDWN radio show, Rabbi Wyne said "if you want the girl of your dreams, don't bother with romance, KNOCK HER UP". It was crude, extremely offensive and certainly not befitting anyone using the title "Rabbi" especially of a Young Israel synagogue and ordained by Aish HaTorah. National Council of Young Israel had a recording of the show sent to them by their own Vice President, Farley Weiss, yet did nothing about it then just as they did nothing to enforce the excommunication nor a year later when Wyne said "the Torah does NOT prohibit prostitution".

He DISTORTS AND FALSIFIES THE WORDS OF THE TORAH PUBLICLY ON THE RADIO WITH LIES SAYING Deuteronomy 23:18 does NOT prohibit prostitution! Read the story of Yehudah and Tamar (with Rashi so you see the whole story and not the distortion presented by his co-host Peter) and you will see that the word Kedaisha is used specifically after Tamar asks what she will receive. Any police officer can tell you that promiscuity becomes prostitution when solicitation occurs! Anyone who knows how to read Rashi or any other commentary such as the Ramban knows that what was said on The Rabbi (sic) Show is an inversion of the truth. Artscroll clearly explains in the footnote that they expanded on the translation of the verse from the explanation of Rashi which is based upon the concept of davar halomed misofo, the first verse is expounded by the succeeding verse that uses the word zonah (which is the more general term but does not necessarily entail solicitation whereas kedaisha does).

Since the broadcasts aired, the Las Vegas Kollel (set up by Yeshivas Chofetz Chaim of Flushing, NY) has said nothing to counter the heresy, continues to daven at the Young Israel and even had the apikorus-rabbi speak at the LV Kollel's Annual Dinner!

How does your local Young Israel rabbi feel about these broadcasts?  How does your rabbi feel about the constant emphasis by the excommunicated host that he is the "Rabbi of YOUNG ISRAEL Aish of Las Vegas" ? (Note: The document Young Israel claims showed the seruv lifted on Lamed-Gimel (??) Elul 5767 is a blatant forgery!!! [click to view])
