邪教 (hiragana じゃきょう, romaji jakyō)

  1. heretical religion, heathenism, heresy
    • 1936, 戸坂潤, 思想と風俗:
      でいわゆる邪教 (じゃきょう)も、ただ (たん)邪悪 (じゃあく)信仰 (しんこう)のことなどではない。
      de iwayuru jakyō mo, tada tanni jāku na shinkō no koto nado de wa nai.
      And these so-called heresies are not simply evil cults.
