The religion of the Zoros was characterized by animal sacrifice. The reason being that the Zoros wanted to appease their gods when these deities were believed to be angry.

Is it right usage --- The reason being that ?? Is "Because of" not preferred here ??

were believed -- Is this passive ??

Please help. This sentence will clear a lot of my doubts ...

Thanks

"The reason being" is incomplete.
"were believed" is passive.
