According to your wikki (spit), the word "protestant" and variations are thrown in (for no reason even resembling a protest) occassionally among the NUMUROUS references to "reformation" and it's variables.


It's the word used I'm argueing against ... not the history.


I am not a protestant .. I am not a Catholic.

Ok. Point taken. The word protestant is divisive and offensive. Henceforth the term “Eucharistically Challenged” will be the preferred nomenclature......

I sympathize with your frustration in not being able to determine one's own appellation.

I am not a protestant .. I am not a Catholic.

It seems to me to be problematic to describe a faith in terms of what it is not.

I realize we're not there yet, and it doesn't help as regards the article of this thread, but maybe one day it will just be "Christians."
