??? A reminder to differentiate here again: All these aforementioned religions vary greatly in their attitude towards use of their icons. Authentic Polynesian idol worship is a dead culture by en large. Islamic culture, on the other hand, by its definition simply forbids any depictions of god. And Christianity has many devotees who buy all kinds of Jesus kitsch, so do Buddhists with plastic Buddhas. To me, the main instigators of conflict and overzealous political correctness in religions are individuals who insist on formality over spiritual content.
