I don't know what your Jehovah's Witness bible re-write says mate, but here's what normal versions say in Exo ch 32-
"the people gathered around Aaron and said to him, “Get up, make us gods that will go before us"....he made a molten calf. Then they said, “These are your gods..”
The Lord spoke to Moses: “your people have acted corruptly..my anger can burn against them and I can destroy them"
So Moses smashes up the calf to appease God's rage, it's plain enough to me..

Only one calf was built and the celebration was declared specifically to YHWH, not to multiple gods
If that's the case, why was God and Moses furious at the Israelites for worshipping it?..
"The Lord spoke to Moses: “your people have acted corruptly..my anger can burn against them and I can destroy them" (Exo ch 32)

Wait mate, you forgot to answer my question!
You claimed the Israelites worshipped that golden calf in honour of God and not other gods, and I asked you if that was the case, why were God and Moses furious?

How much of Christianity is based on Paganism?
Catholicism? Probably most of it. Normal Christianity, probably 10% or less.
Olivier said- Catholicism remains "normal christianity" since it is the largest denomination. The various sects of protestantism are the odd ones.
