I wasn't insulting non-Catholics. My point was that if you have someone who was raised in the Baptist faith, but then becomes agnostic, they don't generally continue calling themselves Baptists. Further, they don't act like they are speaking for the Baptist church, and the media doesn't poll them as Baptists.
Much like secular Jews still call themselves Jews, there is a tendency for secular Catholics to continue calling themselves Catholics. I don't see that much with protestants.
Yes, I did misunderstand your comment.
Sorry, we do agree. I am as sensitive about this as you are.
