Fwiw, hating people because they are different has been around as long as religion, and is not necessarily related to religion.

Bingo. That hate is probably what led to the development of religions though.

Not all conservatives hate gay people. Hell, some gays ARE conservatives AND religious.

Then they aren't conservative on that issue. The right wing stance on gay people is negative. If you don't share that stance, that doesn't change conservatism, it just means you don't follow that part of conservatism.

may have played a part, but I would say superstition more than anything led to the developement of religions. That and a desire to explain why bad things happen.

To explain what was unexplainable to people at that time, yes.
