Divination-the practice of trying to foretell the future

and who is to say if our amount of reverence is excessive?

pray
to offer devout petition, praise, thanks, etc., to (God or an object of worship)

wor-ship
reverent honor and homage paid to God or a sacred personage, or to any object regarded as sacred
Pray-to implore
Just a urgent request, nothing wrong with that. so pray tell me, where is the wrong in that.
Worship-a service or rite showing reverence for a deity.
Good thing those statues aren't deities,


We don't worship statues, maybe by your twisted definition, but not it reality.
