    When you have greater penalties for going outside the social rules, you tend to be more conservative following those rules.

    That is a good question! Why ARE they so consumed with sexual identity? gender roles? who can have relations with whom? which bathroom to go to?
    I realize it spells out many of these so-called 'judgements' in their holy books, but they pick and choose which directives to follow or not follow.
    Eating shrimp is supposed to be just as bad as having same sex relationships, yet one inspires people to create seafood recipes, and the other inspires some to commit unspeakable acts of terror.
    The 'don't murder' clause is only valid if you can't get away with it. Weird. Otherwise, it's ok to go to war and murder whole villages and rape their women.
    Religion is not an excuse for treating everyone on the planet like a diseased sinner with leprosy. It's just madness.
    Hell exists only in their indoctrinated mindset. They can't rationalize it, so they obsess over it, I presume.

      Gender identity means letting biologically intact men often sexually attracted to women into locker rooms, changing rooms, girl's dorm - and saying catering to his delusion trump's women's safety and privacy while ignoring the abuse by predators.

      Uh, no, that is NOT what it means. The question is about why are religionists so obsessed with 'sin and hell'. If a crime is committed, then investigate it. Otherwise keep your own nose clean.
