Look at the meaning of veneration from the first few centuries and what it means in Greek or Latin and you'll at least have a clue about what you're talking about. Until then, it's no different than calling the “Gay Nineties” a time when Victorian style homes were popular and queers were all the rage. IOW, it just shows how ignorant and foolish the person making the accusation is.
See post #51 "This thread is posted in the Religion Forum. It is an "open" thread so posters may argue for or against dieties, religious authorities, etc. The main guideline on the RF is to "discuss the issues all you want, but do not make it personal."
And Matthew 5:22 "but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire."
Discuss the issues all you want, but do not make it personal.
