According to his own criteria, I guess “pope” Francis was praying to Satan when, according to Roman Catholic sources, his very first act as “pope” was to go to the largest cathedral in the world dedicated to the worship of Mary, bow before an ancient idol of her and pray to her not to the Lord Jesus Christ. He then proceeded to lay flowers at the base of the idols image! Talk about getting off to a great start, he literally admitted by his own words and actions that he was praying to Satan!
And when he asks Mary to pray for him he isn't worshiping her any more than he'd be worshiping you if he asked you for your prayers. The only difference is that you're on earth and she isn't. She's alive in heaven with our other brothers and sisters in the faith who preceded us there.
I don't mind you disagreeing with Catholic beliefs although I'd be inclined to take your criticisms more seriously if you accurately stated the Catholic belief or practice with which you disagree. Peace be with you.
After all, according to Roman Catholics, Latin is the language of Heaven, not Aramaic,(which the Lord spoke), Greek (in which the New Testament was written), or Hebrew (in which the Old Testament was written and prophets spoke). All must bow to Rome, and Roman Catholic pronouncements, and worship Mary, pray to priests for forgiveness of sins, pray people out of Purgatory, and kiss a ring that was a pagan symbol, rather than follow G_d’s Word.

I’m sorry, but that’s funny.
You might want to put a little more elbow grease into your apologetics efforts.
