Maybe you can do some reading by two Protestant writers, Scot McKnight and Jon Sweeny who wrote two books, the former, who wrote the book, “The Real Mary: Why Evangelical Christians Can Embrace The Mother Of Jesus”, and the latter, “ The Lure Of Saints: A Protestant Experence Of Catholic Tradition”. Even Martin Luther had good things to say about Mary. This rediscovery by Protestants is good because she is shown to be what a follower of her son ought to be.

Apart from the very little that the bible says about her, she is an invention. That makes "Our lady" an apt name.

I can't imagine two more people having anything to add to what is already taught by your group about Mary...

Veneration of Mary and dead people, statues, images, etc. is anti-biblical...

Ovbiously this veneration has a place in religion, but it has no place in biblical Christianity...

I will never bow to anyone or anything outside the Trinity of God...I will never pray to anyone or anything outside the Trinity of God...

The Apostle Paul, the Apostle who was commissioned by God to reveal and start the Gentile Christian Church, never so much as mentioned Mary's name in his Epistles...

The veneration of ANYONE or ANYTHING other than the Trinity of God has no place in Christianity...OR, the Apostle Paul was a liar...
