What is it and why are we accused of it? It seems to me like the ‘idolatry’ card is a straw man argument. Idolatry is precisely the thing we try to avoid as Catholics.
Idol, Idolatry: The worship of false gods or something created rather than the Creator (Rom. 1:25) Idolatry is prohibited by the first two of the Ten Commandments (Exo. 20:3-4). Abraham migrated to Canaan to escape idol worship (Josh. 24:2-3). Prominent idols mentioned in the Bible are the golden calves of Aaron (Exod. 32:4) and King Jeroboam (2 Chron. 11:15). and the grain god of the Philistines known as Dagon (Judg. 16:23). Elijah helped overthrow Baal worship in Israel (1 Kings 18:17-40), and the prophet Isaih described the folly of idolatry (Isa. 44:9-20). In the N.T., idolatry is anything that comes between the believer and God (Col. 3:5).
