    Because they are banned from limiting the size of their family and frowned upon if they marry out of that religion.

    The Catholic church encourages its members to shun birth control and have a lot of kids.  They do this to gain more followers, who put their money in the collection dishes.

    Orthodox and catholic both lead to torments in hell because they both add works to salvation.  And neither of them existed for hundreds of years after the Bible was complete and compiled in the 90s AD.  So get away from them both.  Here is what you need to believe: The truth is that the Lord Jesus Christ is God, and He loves you.  Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell.  So to avoid hell, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is that easy.  When a person dies, they will be in heaven or hell, and they can't get out of hell if that is where they go.  To go to heaven and not go to hell, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, without adding any of your works.  Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is God and who died on the cross and shed His blood to pay for all our sins, and who resurrected from the dead.  See Romans 4:5 and 1 Corinthians 15:3-4.
