worship of the shiva lingam, regarded generally as a phallus, is an inherent part of hindu religion. minarets and church bell towers are also interpreted as phallic symbols, though not in the same explicit way. the intrinsic connection between religion and sexuality is also evident in the gender assigned roles by which many religions are organized. but more so, in the way religions regulate the sexual life of its adherents.
