Idolatry

Avodah Zarah (according to Rambam [NB – I’ll post whatever kosher sources I can get my hands on as I’m not a Rambam-only person]):

“A gentile who worships/­serves false gods is liable provided he worships them in their customary manner.

A gentile is executed for every type of foreign worship which a Jewish court would consider worthy of capital punishment. However, a gentile is not executed for a type of foreign worship which a Jewish court would not deem worthy of capital punishment. Nevertheless, even though a gentile will not be executed for these forms of worship, he is forbidden to engage in all of them.”

Rambam or Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, Mishneh Torah, Laws of Kings, Chapter 9, law 2 (http://­www.chabad.org/­library/­article_cdo/aid/­1188354/jewish/­Chapter-9.htm)
