    1) Islam (all forms)
    2) Catholicism
    3) Scientology (I sorta put this in here, even though I honestly don't think it is a religion)

    Or are you asking for the worst of the worst of the worst?

    How about those Aztec religions that sacrificed people to the Gods? Even the Norse sacrificed people to the Gods.

    Any religion can be bastardized by the zealots, so the religion itself cannot be condemed because of their actions. If this was so we can be condemed for the acts our government did through the ages like the Native American massacres.

    I disagree. Buddhism seems a pretty harmless religion...Don't get many protesting Shinto worshipers either or Taoists for that matter. Don't get me wrong, I've seen incidents where Buddhist monks have gone batshit, but generally they seem pretty mellow.

    But I did mean the worst of the worst. Looking at mainstream generally - not your David Koresh or Jim Jones cult of personalities...

    The Japanese during WWII were Buddhists; mainly Shinto.
