Had I said, "I am not a protestant, I am a Christian" you might have taken the opportunity to align ourselves when there are clear lines of difference between us.

Had I said, "I am not a Catholic, I am a Christian", we would have started WW3.

Why can't you oblique semanticists just accept that people whom are not Catholic, but attend a church, or are of a particular denomination are also not protestant ?

I try to let people determine what they wish to be called relative to this kind of stuff.

I just thought “not Catholic” didn’t really help much since it still is in relation to and opposition to Catholic, as is “protestant.” Both seem to describe a confession that is defined by or rooted in opposition to... not much difference.

What denominational name do you wish to be called?
