I was recently having a "Discussion" with a catholic, actually, it was more of a debate. They actually believe that they aren't praying to Mary (though, that is what it really is), they believe that they are praying THROUGH Mary, and that Jesus has to listen to her, as he has to respect the commandment about honoring your father and mother. I tried every piece of scripture I could think of, and common sense with this person, and could not get her to see the light of day on the issue. They just can't see that they are praying to someone other than God, and they can't see that it is wrong. So deep is the indoctrination, that they seem to be blind to the truth. I ended up coming to the conclusion that the only thing left that I could do for this person is to pray. No matter what I presented to her, she responded with the catholics stance on that verse, not reading it, and seeing it for what it is. It was like arguing with a brick wall.
