    This is another of those things I used to do, realised it just wasn't necessary and stopped doing. I do not agree however that the mere presence of an image such as stained glass is idolatry. Read the second commandment - idolatry involves bowing down to and worshiping false idols.
     
    Aidan and Stalwart like this.

    Nor do I but the author of the homily "On Peril of Idolatry" seems to think so.

    And I think it's safe to say that Cranmer would be quite bemused by your profile picture!

    Exactly, on all points.
