King Solomon, Promiscuity, and Child Sacrifice 'gods'

This morning, I was reading about he downfall of King Solomon in 1 Kings 11; it started when the King decided to think with his genitals instead of fearing the Lord:
But King Solomon loved many foreign women, as well as the daughter of Pharaoh: women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians, and Hittites— (v. 1)
Chasing women led King Solomon to engage in some really bad activities:
Then Solomon built a high place ... for Molech the abomination of the people of Ammon. (v.7)
Now who, pray tell, was Molech?!?
One of the practices of the cult that worshiped Moloch was to sacrifice their children.
In other words, pursuing the next orgasm can mess up your moral compass really quickly; there's nothing original about any of our allegedly 'enlightened' and 'modern' attitudes about sex.
