Neither, I find the whole topic pathetic and ridiculous. Polytheists worship a lot of other things, I don't really see what you're saying. The topic of sun worship is brought up all the time, other planets have been worshiped, as have other things in nature such as Oceans, Rivers, Trees, Flowers, etc. This doesn't, in the Abrahamic worldview, actually make any of these things "angels" or "demons" or "gods".
Of course, I did mention this earlier in the thread. In the view of the NT, Babylon becomes instead of the area situated in the ancient geographical area corresponding to Iraq/Iran/Turkey/Syria etc, in the NT the ancient empire of Babylon becomes a symbol for the oppression of the Israelites and an embodiment of the what the Abrahamic tradition sees as perversion.Babylon is also mentioned in the NT
I do know what you mean, likely better than you do.
