How do you control the populace if you are utilizing religion?
1) Claim you have the imprimatur of deity
2) Control sex by claiming deity says thus and so is acceptable and anything else is deviant/heretical/abomination/sin
3) Control desemination of information again what is acceptable to deity and what is heretical/“work of the devil”/leads people away from God/blasphemous
None of this is surprising.
