There are loads of religious cults out there. Average, ordinary, everyday people happily worship all sorts of strange stuff: from godlike space aliens, to arcane deities, to historical figures and celebrities, to pseudoscientific concepts and other things that seem just plain absurd.
Here are ten rather odd cults.
Included is a cult that literally worships a sports hero.
The Church of Maradona reportedly has over 80,000 members, and they worship at the (quite capable) feet of Argentine soccer superstar Diego Maradona. Followers are inspired to name their children Diego, strictly obey ten religious commandments, and faithfully recite the prayer “Our Diego”.
I’d convert, but I’m presently a member of the Church of Fish Burritos.
