Weird religious practices can vary with different cultures. Some may not seem so weird but it’s definitely weird for others. For example, Jehovah’s Witnesses aren’t allowed to donate blood, and Islamic Women must cover their whole faces, save for their eyes.

Modern society wants to believe that religion was created by men and with so many different religions out there, it’s not hard to see why.

A man once said that the quickest way to get rich is to create a religion. Others say religion was created to keep men in place. We never know why, but it’s fun to learn about the different backgrounds of different Religion.
