    What about the subject of sex & sexuality make many religionists feel uncomfortable, even

    unglued?  Why won't religionists accept the fact that sex & sexuality are normal parts of life & not a sin which they are fond of making such things out to be unless it is within their strictly defined paradigm of marriage, procreative, & heterosexually based?

    Religion is not anti-sex. It is against sex outside of bounds that are set for the betterment of society.
    It is easy to say why don't we all just have sex with whomever we want, but this ignores the 3x worse life outcomes for illegitimate children because the parents who made them aren't committed to raising the kids together. (10% of kids of married parents have negative life outcomes like drug addiction, alcoholism, suicide, dropping out of school, while more than 30% of children of single mothers are - and for divorced couples and never married couples, the odds are in between.)
    It ignores the high rate of sexually transmitted disease that "free love" creates, the broken families and hearts, the people who spend their later years alone because after a decade of hook ups and break ups they can't settle down and trust someone for a lifetime.
    The person saying we shouldn't be hung up on sex has never been the jilted or abandoned partner cheated on, just like the ones saying "don't judge" ignore the rest of the verse "lest ye be judged by the same standards" followed by the command TO JUDGE right from wrong.
    So all religions do call for sexual morals that limit sex (mostly) to married couples, because it is better for the children and all of society.  And the statement to judge is simply "don't kill her for adultery if you're doing something as bad".

    Repressed feelings and sexual tension come to mind.

    Kinda why it no longer seems surprising the most anti gay/anti sex people either used to be gay or sexual deviants in the past themselves, or end up getting caught cheating on their spouses/gobbling on junk with gay hookers in bathrooms...
