The Catholics don't technically worship Mary- that's a Protestant misconception. They hold her in more reverence than Protestants and believe in something called "intercession", whereby they pray to ask Mary or the saints to intercede with god on their behalf.
for the same reason they worship the Father .son, holy ghost? the bible specificaly states NOT to worship idols but there they are. jesus defined vows chasity obedience poverty. yet they have millions in gold, artifacts paintings other assets, hold torches for boys who hold candles. My wife and I wanted to get married. but I wasn't confirmed. So they said i have to take a 1 yr class. BUT if I paid the church $700.0 they'd forget about it.??

The Catholics have their own interpretation of Christian worship. They pray to Mary, various saints, as well as Jesus, in contradiction to biblical teachings. Their archaic doctrines and dark history have driven many to other faiths.
They will say they dont. But they kneel before her idol, they light candles to her and pray 'for intercession' to her though we know only God/Christ can do that AND we know God said to pray to NO ONE but Him, and they believe that Mary herself is pure and holy and born of a virgin just as she was a virgin when she gave birth. They dont think she ever had sex with her HUSBAND or had other children tho the Bible mentions Jesus had both brothers and sisters, some by name and there is historic record of Jesus having at least one nephew. They worship Mary as equal to Christ giving her the same powers if heaven as he has. This is called blasphemy. They do this because the pope, who believes himself to be an embodiment of God on earth, holy, pure and sinless, Gods mouth piece. Everything he says they believe is devine and of God so they wirship Mary because a Pope declared her devine. Possibly Constantine himself way back in ancient Rome.
