Now yes I have another motive which is my belief in Jesus, like your avatar he was a wood carver, he once healed a man whom had been born blind but he gave the man perfect sight and so he saw people as Tree's walking
For example a blind person knows how an object feel's and do you really think God would give sight without giving the understanding to go with it
The worship of saints' relics is closely tied to the growth of the Christian church.
noun, plural idolatries.
the religious worship of idols.
excessive or blind adoration, reverence, devotion, etc.
an image or other material object representing a deity to which religious worship is addressed.

the deity itself.
I agree with you, we are living times in which there is a so serious manipulation of the public opinion through the abuse of propaganda, people believe that they can even rewrite entire chapters of History and that since they happened so long time ago nobody is going to notice the difference.
What we are witnessing is not History, because anyway life of religious figures or leaders is also History, it is the ability to distort facts and deny History.
Moreover, they do not only lie and misinform, and launch false accusations they are also extremely cynics, talking about making up facts when that is precisely what they are doing while supporting new bold theories about History never proven and with No serious references to quote about.
That is the only idolatry present here, the one toward the power of malicious propaganda to misinform, thinking that a lie repeated thousand times becomes truth.
I would add that it is extremely exaggerated and bold the discourse of the ones that talk about a systematic falsification of holy relics.
Many of the so called false relics were never that, the problem is that secular people don't know how to distinguish in between 1st, 2nd and third class relics. It is not that there are dozens of holy nails, but that the major part of the ones exist were just touched to the original ones used to crucified Christ.
Any serious Historian knows that there are dozens of copies of the Holy Shroud touched to the original, this since it is believed, following what it is clearly said in the New Testament that anything that touched Jesus received or transmitted his healing power.
A lot of European Princes and Archbishops got authorized copies of the Holy relics of Jesus or Mary and the Apostles. Probably poor labeling of them created concussion about that the were just replicas
