Why Are The Religious So Homophobic?

Why Are The Religious So Homophobic?
Exploring the Religious Propensity for Anti-Gay Sentiments

Here are the bullshit reasons I did not deem worthy of discussion.
Here are the four ideas I propose that could be behind the homophobic mentality.

  1. Anal sex is still a taboo and has a social stigma attached to it. Or does it?[1]
  2. Homosexuality is a one of the easiest sins to avoid if you are not gay. Our natural drive for pride and valuing ourselves over others would allow the religious to feel self-righteous when it comes to the sin of homosexuality.[2]
  3. Homophobia could be a result of the failure to resolve the Oedipal Conflict.[3]
  4. Latent Homosexuality, meaning a primarily subconscious tendency to feel homosexual urges, could be a contributing factor towards homophobic behavior.[4]
