In atheist circles there is seldom, if any, mention of the real purpose of religion, and the psychology behind it. Simply put, religion is the implanting of guilt for having sexual desire.
For children and the elderly to whom this would not apply, there are additional guilt trips, such as "original sin" and the spectre of burning in Hell forever.
Look up the Catholic doctrine on masturbation -

New Catholic Encyclopedia


Morality. It has been the constant and clear teaching of the Church from principles found in Holy Scripture that masturbation is a serious sin that will keep one from heaven (e.g., 1 Cor. 6:10).


Jewish law clearly prohibits male masturbation. This law is derived from the story of Onan (Gen. 38:8-10), who practiced coitus interruptus as a means of birth control to avoid fathering a child for his deceased brother. G-d killed Onan for this sin. Although Onan's act was not truly masturbation, Jewish law takes a very broad view of the acts prohibited by this passage, and forbids any act of ha-sh'cha'tat zerah (destruction of the seed), that is, ejaculation outside of the vagina. In fact, the prohibition is so strict that one passage in the Talmud states, "in the case of a man, the hand that reaches below the navel should be chopped off." (Niddah 13a)

Like the Nazis, the religious realize that the internal conflict arising from having guilt and desire needs an outlet, a way to vent, and hatred of homosexuals provides a convenient scapegoat, which also helsp to amplfy the sexual guilt. Denunciations of homosexuality thunder down from the pulpits regularly, with a hypocrite like Jimmy Swaggart goose stepping across the stage while railing on about homosexuality - this from patron of prostitutes.
In Canada, we have hate speech laws, but the religious have been given an exemption in that they can promote hatred of homosexuals based on "deeply held religious beliefs". Surprise, surprise - Republicans in the USA are passing legislation exempting the religious from discrimination laws based on "deeply held religious beliefs", knowing full well this contradicts the Constitution, but Conservatives have become so brazen as to consider themselves above the law.

A man with a guilty conscience is more docile, and more easily controlled by the oligarchy, lessening the need for policing of the masses.

Islam takes this to new heights -

district in Indonesia’s deeply Islamic Aceh province has banned men and women from dining together unless they are married or related, according to an official who said it would help women be "more well behaved".
