If you show me Vatican priests worshipping pagan objects or evil spirits, then I'll be worried.
Idolatry is rampant in the Roman Catholic Church. Statues abound in the Vatican, and in most traditional Catholic churches. The veneration - even
worship of saints - is a large part of Catholicism. Catholics have their own justifications for the use of statues, but nevertheless, they violate
the First Commandment through their usage.
The Church calls their saints "intercessors", but this is - with some minor exceptions - generally considered a violation of the reverence due to
G-d alone as demonstrated in the Old Testament time and time again.
As far as "paganism" is concerned, there is only a thin veneer of Christ and Christ's teachings within Catholicism itself. After Constantine the
sun-worshiper made Christianity the state religion of his time, Christianity adopted many, many of the pagan symbols, feast days, etc. into the new
state religion. If you carefully study Catholicism, you will find many of the rituals, statues, and feast days are of pagan origin with a thin veneer
of Christianity attached.
Christ was a Torah observant Jew. He would be appalled at the use of idols (statues), rosaries, and pagan practices that are both non-biblical and
the complete opposite of traditional Jewish values and teachings.
