  • No...there's just not two categories it's not "You're either Catholic or Protestant. Your question asked one thing...that was answered.

    There's other religions out there that are neither Catholic nor Protestant. Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Paganism....they are neither.

  • I actually never said they were in the first place but posting the definition was surely better than attempting to continue attempting to make a point that people were going to just ignore.
