If we turn something (including a concept or tactic) into a weapon, we have weaponized it. If we legally classify something as a crime, we have criminalized it.
What is an equivalent single-word, verb term for turning something into or classifying something as a sin?
Best possible answers will capture the religious overtones adjacent to the word 'sin,' although are not restricted to western religions. Good but not best answers will at least capture a sense of newly classifying something as immoral without the direct overtones. Merely capturing a sense of modern illegality (i.e., criminalize, above) is not enough.
Its use in a sentence might be, "It was not enough for the preacher to criminalize loud music; he felt the need to ____ it, to turn it into a mortal sin."
