7. People would find other reasons


A religious text* is just a convenient reason for people to be afraid of people that are different or that they don't understand.

It probably goes all the way back to when the human race was just a bunch of small nomadic tribes. A stranger was often someone to be feared, if not for violent reasons, for the simple reason that food and water were precious and limited and there was none to spare for a stranger or strangers.

*The Christian Bible isn't the only text that has parts that can be interpreted as being against same sex relations, the Koran has elements as well and I doubt those are the only two religious texts that can be interpreted in a manner sufficient to find a rationalization to have a reason to dislike a certain class of people.
