Statues and the Second Commandment

Beyond the political and historical issues surrounding statues of Confederate leaders, I have been thinking about the theological implications of the issue.

Do the statues – no matter who they memorialize – violate the Second Commandment?

I think it is much closer to breaking the Second Commandment (if it is not broken outright) with statues of sports figures, because there is so much idolatry of sports. But the question remains.
