Is it any wonder why the Catholic Church has fallen deep into the idolatrous affair with Mary.
This photo, which I took when I was in Rome, was taken one hour after the Vatican Guards rejected us entrance to St. Peter's Square with a wooden cross. Yet, they never blinked an eye when they let this "Golden Calf" idol of Mary, seated on a throne, dressed in black velvet, holding a dead Jesus, passed right into St. Peter's Square without question.
In truth, you may be assured, that it is Jesus who sits on the throne, and Mary is bowing in worship to HIM right now!

This Shrine to Mary can be found in Golden Meadows, Louisiana. A small statue of Jesus and other saints stands at her side.
For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, which made silver shrines for Diana, brought no small gain unto the craftsmen;  Whom he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, Sirs, ye know that by this craft we have our wealth.  Moreover ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands:  So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth.  And when they heard these sayings, they were full of wrath, and cried out, saying, Great is Diana of the Ephesians.
Today, Diana has been replaced by Mary!
