It's not "just a statue" for me. The shrine and the images of the Buddha in it help me to focus on, reflect on, and be inspired by the Dhamma. For me, Buddhism is a "religion" and not just a "philosophy". That's the way I see it. Others may see it differently and I respect that.
As for kicking off the head of the statue...

I think we have to be practical.
You cant meditate if you are sitting on a volcano.
