I would say the same thing about the Lutheran church if I were raised a Baptist and then became Lutheran: “Much more Catholic than Protestant.” But the reality would be that it was founded and led by Protestants, grounded in Protestant doctrines, has deliberately NOT associated itself with the Catholic Church and DOESN’T want to be Catholic. That’s Protestant. That’s isn’t Catholic. It might seem more Catholic than Protestant to me if I started out from an extremely low church sect like the Baptists, but that wouldn’t change the fact that the Lutherans (and Anglicans) are still Protestants.

Even this Anglican parish is still PROTESTANT: http://www.s-clements.org/flash.html

They even say the Rosary!!! They’re still Protestant.

I would say the same thing

And you would be rather self-consistent in saying so.
