Bigamy is right up there. I am also not a huge fan of the Catholic church not wanting couples to use birth control. That may have changed in recent years but when I was married in the Catholic church in 1987 my wedding vows included a promise not to use any kind of birth control except for the rhythm method.

Digging a hole so your first born chid can be burried alive to apease god. If you really want proof that this happens, type “religion buried alive” in to youtube. WARNING, you will find very distressing footage.

I think the abrahamic faiths end up having some of the worst effects.

Any form or genital mutilation is just repulsive.
And indoctrination of children.
