    "religiously based" though I agree with you, that that IS the primary source of it.  I'd call it church-based socialization, because what you're really describing is the overwhelmingly powerful role that these churches (as social institutions) play in their congregants everyday lives.  There's no counterbalance or even vaguely comparable secular institution or cultural force to set against it.

    The social power of that (not so much the religious force of it, though the religion is used in that way) is hard to overcome.
