patent, I guess when I've asked you to pray for me I must unwittingly have been worshipping you -- or so some would have us believe.

My bad.

A CATHOLIC WORSHIPING MARY
Your link only shows a Catholic praying to Mary, and I will quite clearly state that most Catholics do pray to her. The part of the link that states:
They sin by praying to her and then sin again by lying and saying that they don't.
Is a blatant out and out lie. Catholics clearly and readily state that they pray to her, so the claim that we lie and say we don’t, is just that, a lie. The only Catholics I have ever heard claim they don’t pray to Mary and other saints are the CINOs, Catholics in name only who are barely, if at all, Catholic. Don’t spread lies about us.

As to praying to Mary, it is not worship. That is what I said, we do not worship her. There is a difference between a prayer to God, asking that he forgive our sins, etc. and a request to Mary that she pray for us as well. It is no different from asking any other living individual to pray for us to our Lord, as Mary is quite clearly living.
