Sound advice for folks who feel the urge to indulge in Mariophobic Response Syndrome

Note especially the last point. Endlessly insisting that Catholics worship Mary is a huge waste of time if you want to bash Catholic belief. Far more sensible to focus on the Eucharist, which we really *do* worship and adore. It’s still not idolatry, of course, because the Eucharist is Jesus Christ and he deserves to be worshiped and adored. But at least its a more plausible line of attack than the tired “You worship Mary!” claim. The problem with saying this to a Catholic is that he generally has a very hard-to-rebut answer: “No. I don’t.” Unless you have a special Soul-Peering Device from the Sharper Image catalog, that pretty much ends the discussion.
