If the use of statues is all right, why did the Catholic Church cut out the second commandment?
You are asking an impossible question. You might as well ask me, “Why has Australia declared war on Afghanistan?” No man could answer that question, because there is no answer to it. He could only reply, “Tell me first, are you under the impression that Australia has declared war on Afghanistan?” And if you replied in the affirmative, he would proceed to correct your notions. Had you but asked me, “Did the Catholic Church cut out the second commandment?” a reply could have been given at once. She certainly did not do so.
