No, but I think the bible added to the longevity of it.
When I've seen Russians interviewed about their homophobia, they always seem to explain it as part of their religion.

I think the recent rise is in some parts a weird meme that being anti-gay = being Christian. Psychologically, it can't help that the homophobia of the church is so often used by atheists to knock it (probably guilty myself on that one). That is just going to confirm that belief in people's heads.

It is a dangerous meme, too, as it easily allows for scapegoating.

There is also the way that bigotries do seem to come and go in fashion. Look at the rise of Islamophobia in recent years.
