When an Eastern Orthodox Christian prays, he lights a candle and stands in front of some images mounted on the wall or sitting on a shelf. These images are  of Jesus, Mary, and other saints. He may bow before the images or even kiss them. Because of this, Eastern Orthodox Christians are often accused of idolatry.  In this video, Frederica talks about a little about this accusation.
