Dave, you are wrong about this.  In Ezekiel there are a number of 
passages where Ezekiel goes, in a vision, into the Temple, and sees 
what's going on behind "closed doors".  There he observes all manner of 
inscriptions and drawings of bugs, beasts, animals and idols.  Not only 
were there inscriptions to other gods in Jerusalem- they were in the 
temple itself.  See Ezekiel 8, for instance.

Best,

Jim
