Why do you pray to Mary? She was not sinless.
Why do you believe in purgatory and why do you pay the priest to pray people out of it? That sounds like a money making scheme to me.
Why do you believe the pope is infallible? Wasn't Jesus the only infallible man?
Why do you believe the wafer and wine are the ACTUAL flesh and blood of Jesus?

You see there's the problem in a nut shell Sola Scriptora. Scripture only. We as Catholics know that Sacred Tradition came first the Bible about three hundred years later. The only time when the Pope is considered infallible is when he is speaking on the matters of Doctrine the only time that happens is when he is sitting on the Chair of Peter. it doesn't happen very often. Most of his encyclicals are just that writings to help us understand our faith. If we are not to ask our Brothers and sisters alive in Heaven to pray for us then we should not ask those here on Earth to pray for us, for according to your thinking we don't need intercession from anyone else only our own prayers for ourselves is enough. So we shouldn't even pray for anyone else, right?
