I'm just going to draw a comparison here. Let's say it was some kind of Islamic tradition, but we don't agree with Islam, but this tradition in and of itself isn't really bad just the parts that go against God's Word; so what if we just take out the parts we don't like and do this tradition anyway. It's still an Islamic tradition, all we've done is change it to suit our sensibilities.
What about Christianity. We're seeing the very same thing in the church. We are adding to and taking away from God's mandates and His Word to suit our sensibilities. So many churches have taken out the parts they don't like and changed them to suit it to their tastes. God says to stay away from pagan type rituals, so what we do is change those pagans rituals to suit a Christian philosophy and give it a Christian name, but doing so doesn't change what it is. The Catholic Church has done that for centuries to gain converts. If it looks like a duck, and walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it must be a duck.
