Oftentimes these rules are made by people in power that just aren't personally comfortable with an idea, so they make it into a "sin" or illegal to do in the eyes of "god", when its really just their own personal insecurity in something they don't understand or want to deal with.
Excellent question. I think you're right. One religion's sinner is another religion's martyr. A good deal of religious conflict is about gaining superiority instead of taking a live and let live attitude. I think some of what your talking about is really a part of the perennial philosophy, that there is a basic line that all religions hold to, that most basic of knowledge of right and wrong and the nature of the Divine.
