Christ Vs Idols

It is no disbelief that the Catholic Church venerates Mary, the Saints, the idol of Christ and angels. This Mariolatry or hyperdulia (veneration of Mary was established as a dogma at the Council of Ephesus in 431. However what does the scripture say about it? Let’s look at the holy word of God: 

 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me; 6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

—?Exodus 20:4-6 (KJV)

 

Is Catholicism right or the scripture right? I don’t want to offend the Catholics but as a Christian of conviction, I would like to worship God alone. I am perfectly right in following my viewpoint. Catholicism espouses sheer idolatry, a blasphemy which is an abomination for the Lord.
