The writer presents an unsupported "straw man" argument to the effect that Protestants claim St. Peter was never in Rome.
Inasmuch as the overwhelming majority of real Protestants are pretty sure St. Peter is both a saint and was in Rome, I really don't where this guy finds his argument ~ maybe a rumor at the monestary or something?
Very strange way to begin a discussion of the archaeological authenticity of Peter's presence in Rome. It could be he's simply trying to distract us from some of the weaker threads of support.

I don't know what you mean by a "true" protestant but I have to say I have heard them making the argument that Peter was never in Rome. (and its not like I make it a point to get into theological arguments with many people)
