    I am a Pantheist - God is everywhere manifested in everything - (but raised Anglican which is deep in my bones) I am enormously proud of Bishop Desmond Tutu and (Archdeacon) John Spong for example although that is divisive and silly but there you have it -

    A  Catholic definition of a Protestant is someone who uses a contraceptive on every  conceivable occasion.

    unsure if this is joke and not a very good one at that!! or you are completely out of touch with reality.

    Both, a poor joke and I have no conception of reality. Neither apparently do the Italians and Spanish who have the lowest birthrate in Europe in spite of Catholicism.

    A Protestant tends to think of a Catholic as someone who has more than 11 children - to quote my famous Mother - they breed like rabbits

    I have an affiliation with your avatar name my friend, unfortunately we can't sing about you anymore unless we want to get arrested, I would call a protestant a non-F****N, I think you will know what I mean.

    Well it;s Karmic for the Anglicans because by having 8 wives, Henry kind of messed it all up and none of the rest of us are allowed to be self indulgent because he used up the quota -LOL Hugs!!!

    A Protestant is someone who does not believe in ignoring child abuse, who disapproves of stealing babies as in Spain, who believes that the Magdalen laundries in ireland were inhuman, and who thinks that financial corruption in the Vatican is not Christian.

    nomdeplume

    If I have to choose between atheism and Catholicism, atheism wins every time.
    digger

    How about Atheism and Protestantism ?
    nomdeplume

    OK digger I'm a Protestant atheist.

    ...and the truth shall set you free!

    There are so many variations of the Protestant theme.  Originally, without looking it up, I think a Protestant was one who protested against the church of England. 
     http://www.philvaz.com/DENOMS.php   This website will give you a list of over 5000 protestant denominations. 


    A few differences between Catholics and Protestants  are (1) Catholics have a number of saints to whom they pray and "confess sins" to a priest, whereas Protestants feel free to contact God directly; (2) Catholics do not have the commandment " No graven images"  (lots of statues of saints; think of the little statues of Virgin Mary riding on the dashboard of a car, for example); (3) Catholics separate the Protestant 9th commandment  into two separate commandments; and, (4) I think Catholics are a little more ritualistic (more rote, if that makes sense). 

    it's someone who  realizes he  doesn't need the popes, the papal bulls, and edicts of the catholic church in order to get to heaven.

    nomdeplume

    Nor the papal bullsh*t.
    digger

    ...and Heaven is no B.S., right Nom ?
    nomdeplume

    Yes, heaven is BS, also hell, gods, devils, angels. Abandon myth and superstition which hardens hearts and enslaves minds.
    digger

    @nom Now,THAT'S more like it.

    And Protestants allow their ministers to "be human and marry", not expect them to "pretend to be Godly".  There still may be sex offenders in all faiths, but I think the majority are Catholics! 

    A Delusional lite.

    A Catholic follows a rule book veradom. A proteststant will find other suitable rules.........

    If Henry the Eighth had 8, then I think I am not yet setting a world record - although God knows it wasn't for lack of trying - LOL!!! Hugs!!!
