I want to decry an act or object as having heathen-like qualities. I would call it *heathenous, except apparently this word is neither in the dictionaries nor oft-seen by google.

Depending on the context in which you intend to use it, there are a few options:
Simply use "heathen".
This doesn't work so well as a predicate, adjective, however. In that context, there is no derivative of heathen that will work, so I'd go with pagan.
