Religions and forbidding sex
"that religion has something to do with this law. We all know that masturbation and sex for any purpose other than to breed more religious bigots is immoral and and a mortal sin."
I have wondered why many religions try and stop people having sex (especially the unmarried), or simply enjoying sex. The conclusion I have come to is that if people will obey rules like that, then they will obey all sorts of other rules, and won't question things like why they need to be donating money to their local church/mosque/..... .
It's strange how god is so bad with money that it's constantly broke, so needs handouts to survive. Tax free is a good scam too.
If you think about it too, policies and schemes that are successful within an organised religion will stick about, and the ones that aren't successful will die out. Evolutionary theory can be applied to religion itself!
