Religion v/s Homosexuality

The decriminalization of IPC 377 (as per the Constitution of India) has met with varying reaction from different quarters of the society. Quite evidently, the most staunch criticism has come from the religious leaders, and while watching this debate "Religion v/s Homosexuality" on IBN, I witnessed a rare occasion where all religious leaders unanimously agreed on something.

However, this has lead me to think just why is religion so against the concept of homosexuality, why are all religions homophobic?
