Here are a few observations I've made about differences between Protestantism and Catholicism.
Protestantism is the strictly Bible-related concept of Christianity vs the understanding of Christianity based on Scripture and Tradition (meaning the reading and interpretation of the Church as Christ's own institution) in Catholicism. The latter allows for a greater adaptation to historical and personal situations and needs.
A concept of God which stresses his role as judge (Protestantism) vs a more compassionate God (Catholicism). The latter allows for a more generous place for Mary.

"... vs a more compassionate God (Catholicism). The latter allows for a more generous place for Mary."
An opinion which proves that Arminianism (the man-centered religion) is the religion that appeals most to the feelings and the needs of the emotion-driven (feminized males and the females that feminize them).
