Most Hated Religions In the World


The Top Ten

1 Islam

Islam is a cult rather than a religion, born out of the mind of warmongering, egomaniac, pedophile! Islam hasn't evolved the same way other religions has. Stuck in the dark ages it is ruled by fear and draconian punishments! Muslims are the first victims of Islam, often being brainwashed and told to disregard any logical thinking by the age of 2 or 3. Muslims are hypocrites and so was Mohammad! For example : the Quran is the spoken word of Allah and clear for all to understand, for all of mankind and for all places and all times!? Why then are there the hadiths, tafseers and commentaries? Why are various sects and clerics understanding it differently to the point of being at war with each other if it is for all to understand so clearly?

Why is there abrogation? Why do later verses of the Quran supersede earlier ones? - was Allah not able to reveal it at first time or did he conveniently change his mind from time to time to suit Muhammad's needs?

Why if Islam is the one ...more

I think is Islam has such a strong conversion rate because many people in the countries that it is dominant in are unlettered they are told to join by others and, knowing no different, do convert.


Filled with so much hatred for man, they are willing to murder... Islam is not a religion.

Islam the true religion of the anti-Christ and doomed to failure. In the end every islamist knee shall bow and confess that Jesus is Lord and Mohammed is in hell.

2 Christianity

A lot of people don't understand the difference between hating a religion and hating the people from the religion. I am a Christian and many other Christians have been rude or harsh to me. This however does not bother me because I am not rediculously offended by people's comments about me to me or behind my back. I understand feeling bad and being bullied but guess what GO TO A NEW CHURCH. This is not rude you should not be offended. You shouldn't be this offended anyway even without Christians you still would be bullied or laughed at by someone for something. Also stop blaming Christians for things that don't involve you personally. Holidays are also something you seem to be offended by, Jesus and Santa are two completely different people. Don't even think we stole something as stupid as Santa. We celebrate Christmas because of Christ you don't need to believe in him to have Christmas but it's basicly like doing something because you can. Holidays are handed down through family as a ...more

Shame on you. Its because of your type of people who called themselves as Christian but knows nothing about Jesus Christ accept spreading lies and hatred you are sure one of evil agent. Look deep to the scripture with deep and genuine curiosity and you'll have true revelation and your eyes will be opened wide to see the truth and you will say...oh.. This never occur to me. Vast majority of Christian have the same perception like you about Christianity. They know nothing but lies and lies handed down by your parents and your parents by their parents so and so forth... Christ never utter a single word to kill or even harm anyone. Infact, He rescue the prostitute woman who was condemned to death by the law... He teaches us to show the other cheek too if anyone slapped. Whoever kills in the name of Christ is false Christian and anti-christ. Christ had already warn before that numerous false ChristianS (ANTI-CHRIST) finally, you may not even think this in your wildest dream that there are ...more

There's a lot of profound ignorance from many Christians in my country. The religion butts heads with science almost constantly, and it's just really, really sad to watch. I think this issue stems from the idea of there being only one right way to do things. I'm not even sure if that's part of Christianity or just part of this very, very large group of people. But, whatever it is, it comes down to their constant proclamation that their way is right and all others are wrong, all the while missing out on the very civilized and rational conclusion of: we each have our own 'right' way of doing things. It's very disrespectful, very disruptive, very unpleasant, and very small-minded. It's also very hard to coexist with. Like I said, I don't know if this is a result of the religion itself or the rather national execution of it, but it's a sad state of things, really, it is...

Christians come on people they are so rude

3 Scientology

A religion that has murdered its own people in order to keep its insides secret from the, practices that are some of the most harsh in the world "cannot connect to family members" criminal activities that are highly illegal, they pissed off anonymous, and lets not forget moves like project "snow white" these guys are bad news.

Scientology is nothing that it claims to be. It is a complete and utter scam. We were totally ripped off. This religion is evil and it lies and uses mind control tactics to dupe people out of money and free labor. You are mocking up your reactive mind but can stop it and control it - is the Clear cognition. The Cult of Scientology charges huge sums of money to claim to make people "CLEAR" and it is a total SCAM. Run far away from this evil cult. Scientology KILLS!

Child abuse, slave labour, fraudulent business practices, extortion, fraudulent front groups, fake drug rehab centers (Narconon) that tote dangerous practices where our most vulnerable are abused, recruited to this cult and some die, pandering to politicians, blackmail of politicians, celebrities treated like gods while normal people slave for $30 or $50 a week with no time off, insurance or medical,human trafficking, disregard for local laws, hiding their practices, racketeering, abuse of media, breaking up families, coerced abortions, slandering and libeling any who would speak out and expose their racket, did I miss anything?

4 Hinduism

Hinduism is religion of peace. Basic rules are you karma in English it said. What goes around comes around. Hindus believe that what's good for them is good for others. Do no harm to others and they shall not do to you.

Best religion in world. Only choice for peace in world

No one knows what is the truth it is better to follow their own religion and keep peace and give respect to other religions. No one decide to born in a Hindu, Christian, Muslim, Buddhism or etc. It is decide my Almighty god which has different name in different religion. The one who claim that his religion is superior than other religion actually they try to divide the humanity and this type of people has always fear to loose something in his life. The one who say to stop idol worship I don't know why some have problem with others if anyone is satisfied with their own way of worship then what is wrong with that. Idol worship is a visualization of god how it can be wrong? Even one who do idol worship or not is not necessary, God can only be achieved by only his pure heart and believe on himself and self satisfaction. God is beyond the comparison, God is beyond the religions, God is beyond the religious books, or etc. Always remember belief is blind, experience is truth and it is valid ...more

5 Satanism

Satanismis actually about living life like you want to. They believe that us humans made the "gods"by making them up in our heads. Satanism believess that there is no high power that rules the world but its us who make the world how it is. And by the way, Satanism doesn't worship the "devil" or "death" or "Satan" because they don't believe in spiritual beings in the first place. Satanism was destroyed because of the runorrs other religions ssaid about it, Satanism doesn't practice sacrifices or ancient rituals or murder rituals. I think everyone shoould do some research on Satanism because that's what I did and I found things out that I didn't know before

And FYI, I'm not a Satanist at all, I just did research on it and found all this out. I am actually a Catholic so all this surprised me because this isn't what we're taught to believe about Satanism.

I read a text about Satanism (said to be written by a Satanist), because I was curious about what they actually believed -- you know, in contrast to what people just assume they believe. It struck me as being very selfish, and not in a healthy way. I mean, there is such thing as healthy selfishness, in terms of making sure to take care of oneself. But, this felt like it put so much emphasis on one's own satisfaction that it was at the detriment of others. Honestly, that's probably an accurate reflection of what most people do...but that isn't exactly something I'm happy about. It really makes the world a worse place to live in.

Why do they feel the need to be called satanic if they supposedly have nothing to do with satan? It's misleading as hell... Sorry dudes satan is recognized as the devil in multiple religions you don jut get to call yourself satanic and turn around and say oh it's got nothing to do with the devil. Should be renamed

its bad

6 Judaism

I was raised reformed Jewish. I'd say that the culture of Judaism is very valuable, but I'd toss away the religion in a minute, without a second thought. That's because it's just as bad as any other religion, when you get down to it. Something about making so many rules for how people should live their lives ends up having them concentrate more on what's written in a book, than what their own hearts tell them -- and nothing about that is reliably good. I think the most valuable thing about the culture was the emphasis on a strong and thorough education. I was also encouraged to ask questions and think critically, rather than just accepting things at face value. It made a huge positive impact on me as a person. Tolerance was also something stressed -- I cannot personally recall any relative saying a single hateful word about a Muslim, contrary to the popular conception of these two groups always being at odds. Honestly, I think everything I took away from it was more about the culture ...more

I think they should stop first of all saying that they're the chosen ones, the chosen people. What does that mean by the way? That they're special, better or something... than the rest of the people living on earth? That they're the real ones who should rule over this world? No wonder that many people still hates them! Sure, they've been trough a lot in history but what about the black people who were taken away out of their lands to be slaves? Those people doesn't remember their origins or real names anymore. Their souls were erased from their memories. So, Jews have to stop about their non-stop selfpity to eveyone. It's past and they're living their lives very well now. And those comments that are saying that it's not the fault of the Jews that jesus died. Who fault was it then? Certainly not the Romans. The Roman empire believed in their gods but they were also very tolerant against other peoples beliefs in religion. Jews at that time were allowed to practice their beliefs as long ...more

The Jews have been through much worse history than most believe. And we barely even done anything to provoke war with the rest of the Middle East. All we did was fight for our right to own land especially for the Jewish community and you call as the ass hole? Jesus Christ was suppose to free the Jews from life long oppression under the Roman Empire and yet you blame us for his death? If no one turned him in to the Romans the Jews would only become a memory! IT'S NOT OUR FAULT!

Worst of all.

7 Roman Catholicism

2nd Commandment forbids us to bow down before any man-made image or object (original 10 handed to Moses on mount Sinai--Exodus 20--and not the re-writes taught by Catholicism--Daniel 7:25). God cannot be imagined. In Revelation John saw Him with his own eyes and couldn't describe Him. Why do catholics think they can? When speaking to Elizabeth, Mary said, "My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour..." (Luke 1:46-47). Mary knew she was a sinner in need of a savior, why do catholics claim she was immaculate; a virgin, yes, without sin--NEVER! "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Mary would roll over in her grave if she knew catholics, and now many ecumenicals, worship her, the created mother of Christ, as equal to the Creator Jesus Christ Himself! Time to wake up, put down the bottle and pick up the Bible. Francis the anti-Christ is about to inflict his MARK of authority over God's SEAL of approval upon a world of ...more

Pretty accurate reasons listed for why Roman Catholicism is bad although I'm a Christian And the reasons people hate Christians aren't even done much by me it's kind of like they were judging the people instead of the religion, this isn't done with Roman Catholicism people judge it by what the religion is

Um we don't worship statues we are just trying to imagine how God looks like. don't hate the religion because of that

"I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images" (Isaiah 42:8)... So why all this pope, saint, and statue worship?

8 Wicca Wicca

It's easier to be a human being unburdened by religious rules that push you to be intolerant when your religion is decentralized. On the other hand, it also makes it really easy to claim you are that religion, while simultaneously being utterly ignorant of it. To that end, I've met more people who have claimed to be Wiccan, while seeming to know really nothing about it, than any other religious group. I can't say that gives me a very good impression. If anything, it's pretty sad.

Its really cool if you're a teenage girl or overweight spinster

Wicca didn't come till the 1970s it's pagan you're thinking, similar. Wicca adopted Beliefs from pagan.s I practice ancient pagan, its more nature bound

Wicca has less then 500,000 people so I don't see any problems with a tiny religoin

9 Mormonism

Mormons are actually really nice people. Who cares what anyone believes, as long as their religion teaches them to be kind to others?

I'm a Mormon, and as I sit here and read all these comments, I can't help but laugh. The LDS church believes in essentially everything the other Christian faiths do. All you people that think that we're a cult, or Jospeh smith was a con artist with a ton of wives, or any of that crap, have you ever even met a Mormon? Or, heaven forbid, actually been to an LDS church service or asked a Mormon about what they believe? Maybe you should make sure that you are getting reliable information next time you try to talk to a Mormon about what THEY believe. Honestly, who would know the beliefs of the LDS church better than a Mormon?

Actually, the Joseph smith marrying a 14 year old girl, true. Joseph smith having 34 wives, also true. Almost naked temple ceremonies... True, up until 2005. Not to mention cultish tendencies like thought control, controlling what members wear (modesty and garments) pressure not to leave (only the church is true and you'll be dammed if you leave) and others.

Seriously people, I managed to realize this was bull WHEN I WAS THIRTEEN I'm kind of embarrassed to be affiliated with the mor (m) ons just because there are so many inconsistencies that a CHILD could literally spot it.

10 Zionism

Should be higher! The fanatic form of judaism. And like any fanatic group or organisation, fanatic ideals and dangerous in their irrationallity. They're so fanatic that they don't care or respect any form of other belief!

Trying to take over the world, creating hate in every religion. Killing innocent people and children when they should know better after what happened in Germany. They create wars for no reason other than material and power. They fabricated 911.

Awesome religion I might join this.

The worst. Starters of every war since napolean

The Contenders

11 Sikhism

Sikhism is an amazing religion, everything said in the guru granth sahib is just, fair and does not encourage violence! Why is Sikhism on this list, I've never heard of anyone hating on Sikhs laugh out loud.

I am not a Sikh, but if I were to choose a religion I know it would be Sikhism. Without any doubt my favourite religion of all.

After learning more about Sikhism, it became obvious that it suffers from the same ignorant, intolerant issues as every other religion I've studied (and I've studied world religions for more than a decade now). It's just a different package. Are there some good differences? Sure. But, I could say the same thing about a long list of other religions. I think the bottom line here is more that when you get a bunch of people together and have them define what's "right" and "wrong" as being specific things, people get vilified, excluded, hated, etc. It's just part of the process. So it becomes that it's not a matter of winning or losing, it's deciding to play that game to begin with that's the problem.

Sikhism is the best religion

12 Buddhism

Buddhism is a peaceful philosophy (it's not even a religion by definition). They believe in meditation to improve the mind (scientifically proven to work). They are, sadly, oppressed as they are so peaceful that they refuse to fight back.

Buddhism is technically a religion. They believe in death and re birth as well as how to put an end to suffering, just no god

Buddhism is an amazing and wonderful path. I love it.

In the West, what is perpetuated as "Buddhism" is more like the diet, caffeine-free version of Buddhism. It's not what most Buddhists are like. -- If it were, I really couldn't say anything bad about Buddhism at all. Unfortunately, real (religious) Buddhists, especially over in the East, are just as intolerant, biased, and hateful as any other religious group. It's not somehow immune to it simply because of the Western trend of cutesy books, wall decor, jewelry, and self-help gurus, who happen to attach themselves to Buddhism. Unfortunately, many people fail to understand that this Western version of Buddhism is mostly a watered-down, irreligious version of what Buddhism actually is to the majority of its practitioners.

No...Buddhism is based on Only truth they do not dwell to us in blindfaith...Buddha also says in pali ayehi_passsico_openayko means do not believe in what am I saying connect with your own life then think on it...then accept me - ankitnandekar

13 Jehovah's Witnesses

We are very, happy, people and we always remain positive towards people because we care about people and want them to have a wonderful and safe life. Most importantly, we go door to door not to disturb or argue down people. We do it out of love because we recognize the horrible conditions in this world and we want to give people motivation that they are not alone. Also, if God loves people, then it is not possible that he is ruling this earth according to all the bad problems many face today. We only show people a true promise that god has a new kingdom where there will be peaceful conditions. Also, we will all be perfect people doing only right things. I personally look forward to the resurrection hope where everyone can see their dead loved ones alive again. Such a wonderful promise God has for people today who want to know more about him!

If jehovah witness were the only people living on the earth what would the earth be like, think about there would be no wars, because they love each other and their neighbors, no one would steel anything from you, not your car nor money, not even your dog, much less your wife,husband or take your child.the world would have no greed ruling in people hearts because the whole world would be one big family,worshipping God almighty like the bible says, people don't understand that God does have a name his name is jehovah. I have been shown this in my own bible. Jehovah's witnesses go to the people doors out of love, love for God and second people, I too learn this. People judge what they don't know or understand. Why not talk to them I sure did. They are happy people, really happy who force no one to come nor do they make people stay. People stay because their love for God and love for people grows in them. They share what the bible says with all who have humble heart, who is searching for ...more

I truly know Jehovah's witness is not a cult an you can leave anytime.Some people say things because they are afraid of the true twisted by the world of foolishness the Jehovah's witness tried to live by bible rules of the only true God.I feel unless you truly know about jehovah witness you will never know the truth. People whom read this are brain wash by negative people in this world ruled by Satan.Yes the devil think about it the government of the earth never solve world peace Christmas is a pagan holiday by man but you worship this an you talk about Jehovah's witness in a negative way learn something first before you judge others

My neighbor no longer gets them knocking at his door - he answered naked one day. I've also heard that simply saying that you are Catholic (whether you are or aren't ) will get them scuttling.

14 Jainism

Jainism in top ten in this list? There has to be some technical glitch. You can't so much hate a religion (with a tiny population) which has NOT a single incidence of rioting in its 3000 years old history, is atheistic by philosophy and is so much against violence that it calls upon its followers to shun any form of violent resistance and killing animals (EVEN for food).

There is nothing about this religion to hate. Its been around forever, but many people have never heard of it because the followers don't try shoving their beliefs down other peoples throats.

What is this religion. how can I hate something I know nothing of.

Jainism is all about Live and Let Live.

15 Bahá'í Faith

I do not like any religion but Islam

They brain wash you an say that he's Better then Jesus and mumumhamed

Actually the Baha'i faith encompasses Jesus and Muhammad. And Baha'is don't brainwash you. They actually respect other religions and believe in questioning the Baha'i faith and other faiths as well.

16 Voodoo

I was married to a Cuban girl who actually got really scared when her sister said she would put a voodoo (or sangria the Cuban variant) curse on her, because we did not 'help' them enough. Helping being maintaining them almost completely.

17 Sufism

The heavily watered-down versions of Sufi texts and poetry are wonderful, lovely, beautiful, and inspiring to read. But, then when you get to the actual religious stuff...well, it's just the same story with a different title.

Just a religion of grave worshippers.

Sufism is the mystic branch of the Islam. Like astrology, tarotcards... are not accepted by the Christian church ( because of it mysticism ) so is Sufism not accepted by the Islamic religion.

18 Taoism

I've studied Daoism (another, also correct spelling) for many years. The original text, the Dao De Jing, is a beautiful philosophical text that's still very relevant today. I don't know that any other text has had as much of a positive impact on me -- and it's really not religious at all. The more religious Daoist texts came later in history and don't appeal to me -- including those referred to as alchemy texts -- but, I find it very interesting that this isn't where Daoism started. It was really very philosophical to begin with. People seemed to turn it into a religion, but the irony is, the original text was explicitly against that sort of knowledge/behavior system. The original text also is more about describing reality and trends in existence and life, than putting forth rules you should follow, etc. So, it's very non-judgmental (if you're going by the original text). In that respect, I'd say it's quite unique. I also think it says everything that after studying world religions ...more

Taoism is least hated because they don't give you a reason to hate them. they promise you nothing. no heaven no hell.

A true Taoist would never say he is a Taoist. Essentially, Taoism is the study of a group of people practicing a philosophy they espouse but don't evangelisize.

19 The Members Church of God International

Contradictions teachings. They have a leader who keeps cursing during worship and saying He is too a god.

Their god has a butt. No knees. But with a butt.

They have a lots of contradiction teachings

Might as well worship the great spaghetti monster.

20 Tengrism

One of the most stupidest religions ever existed.
They litterally believed that they were relatives of a wolf that mated with a male human.

At least not as bad as worshiping a magic man in the sky that grants miracles because of his under-average self-confidence
