There are many religious practices, Islamic, Jewish, and Christian, which would fall under that definition - it just depends upon whose standards one applies. That the practice of neo-natal male circumcision is seen by the majority of the European world as 'inhumane, barbaric, and antisocial', is but one example.

We could argue these issues all day, but the bottom line is that all evaluations are subjective, and culturally informed.
