Given that contraception is extremely reliable and no one believes in god anymore why is incest still frowned upon?

The two biggest traditional reasons that incest is not only illegal but frowned upon socially are the risk of inbreeding and religious objection. No child of an incestuous union may be admitted into the community of the Lord, nor any descendent of his even to the tenth generation. (Deuteronomy 23:3 NAB)

However modern contraception is so reliable there is longer any worry about getting pregnant. Alternatives such as anal further reduce the risk. As for religious objection does anyone really still believe in god? Apart from little old ladies no one goes to church anymore.
Now I'm not promoting incest or suggesting you give it ago but is there any real reason we still view it as immoral in this day and age?
