I'm vaguely becoming aware that catholics seem to worship mary as some type of deity.
The people I know are Christian. They pray to Jesus. They talk about Jesus. etc. I was never around catholics. But lately with all the pope stuff I've been hearing a lot about it and something kind of blew my mind.
I've noticed that catholics pray to mary like she is Jesus!? Like she is watching over them and can answer prayers and has powers and stuff.
And I vaguely heard that some people in the catholic church want to make her part of the 'godhead' whatever the hell that is.
I've also noticed that catholics don't really talk about Jesus that much. They talk about Mary a lot. The pope even called Jesus a 'failure' for dying on the cross. Its like catholics dont really LIKE jesus. lol
Could someone fill me in on this?
Whats the psychology behind this? Some innate need for a more feminine Deity? A maternal God?
Am i getting this right? Any recovered catholics in here?
