I think religion had an awful lot to do with it.0
any furter description? where was it outlawed?0
Because God said so but we didn't listen so he nuked two cities and then people kind of straightened up for a few thousand years until they forgot.1
For religious reasons, I suppose.0
probably is was considered a sin accoring to the bible...0
In the early modern period it was thought impossible for a nation to exist peaceably unless the whole population subscribed to the same religious/moral code. Governments looked on it as part of their job to promote and enforce a particular moral view usually informed by religion. In the last fifty years or so we have been moving away from this idea in the West and resolving the essential conflict between equal rights and social constraint in favor of equal rights.0
