I know Marge. I am not saying you don't have a right to question us when you see Catholics kneeling before a statue etc. Because from the outside, it looks exactly like Catholics are worshiping it. If i just landed in America and didnt know anything, i would probably think people are worshiping that huge statue of Abraham Lincoln.<quoted text>
It might not seem like worship to you Clay but it sure does to us.
Marian devotion is no different. I remember that JW fella kept insisting and insisting we were worshiping Mary because he saw Catholics carrying an image of her into the Church on the feast of the Immaculate Conception. I properly explained the situation. But he didnt care. He really really wanted to believe we worship Mary.
Obviously, he could not stop bearing false witness as a result.
You all are similar. You desperately want to believe we worship Mary and our Pope and think he is God and worship statues and changed the scriptures...you dont just want to believe this. You HAVE to believe this falsehood in order to exist as non-catholics.
