Strangest Religious Traditions in the World

Tossing Babies 1 of 8

People do some pretty strange things in the name of religion, but these traditions really take the cake. All of them are totally weird, and most are downright dangerous!

Like this tradition in India that involves tossing babies off a 50 foot tower. Men at the bottom catch the baby in a bed sheet that is held taut and then the baby is passed to the anxiously awaiting mother. The truly crazy thing is that the parents do this willingly and believe that it brings their child good luck and good health in life.
