You still haven't explained the strange "soviet" reference. I'm not sure if it's a typo or not. Catholics don't pray to Mary, you've based your entire argument on a fallacy. They honor her, and respect her for what she did, but they don't worship her or place her on the same level as the Trinity. She's on a plane slightly higher than the rest of the Saints.
______ No they don't I have been to about 10 catholic church in the U.S. 5 from Texas, and several from New York the priest either say "Pray to our Mary that she protects you, that she is encamped her Son around you." or "If you need any problems pray to her!" I know. Trust me. Oh and Soviet lol I have no idea how that got in my post o.O I just realized that ._.

Every source I've ever read says that Mary is a higher saint. From what I've read, while they may pray to her, she is not worshipped, only honored. After some quick research, I found this, all copy/pasted: Source 1: Catholics venerate, or honor, Mary in prayer and song. Some people mistake prayer and veneration for worship, but to Catholics, they aren‘t the same thing. Prayer is simply entering into communication with a holy spirit. Veneration is giving special honor to a saint. All good mothers pray for their children and Mary is no exception. If God is the Father of believers, and Jesus is the brother, then Mary is the spiritual mother of the faithful, and Catholics believe that she is very influential with her son. Source 2: Do Catholics worship the saints? To worship someone is to acknowledge that the one who is worshiped is divine, is God. Sometimes we can confuse cultural gestures of reverence for gestures of worship.

I am 2...but if you had to put me in one of the groups, I would be more protestant than any other denominations.

That has more to do with them being immature morons than them being Catholic.

___________ They even have a book or something that has some information that Mary supposedly wrote to her followers. -.-
