Oh when will this misconception end... CATHOLICS DO NOT WORSHIP IDOLS AND IMAGES!!! You are regurgitating something someone told you rather than reading Catholic Doctrine. The fact that I occasionally weep before a photo of my dead father, does that mean I worship him? NO! Catholics use imagery to remind them of the virtue of the saints that went before them, they aren't worshiping the images. We also don't pray to the dead. We pray FOR the dead and we also ask the dead to pray for us to our Heavenly Father.
I can't even comment on the other part.
