A Christian belonging to a Christian Church that is not Catholic or Orthodox. The main beleifs of Protestants is the same as other Christians. The details and practices are where the main diferences are. They don't usually practice the Eucharist at every service. They don't generally emulate all or any saints and Mary. Female and married priest are allowed. This brach of Christianity stems mainly from reformists like Martin Luther who had issues with the faults of the Catholic Church at his time.
The average Protestant is a good Christian and person overall. There is a few radicals who portray a negative stereotype. This image is the Homophobic, racist bigot who hates eveyone not like him. Many organzations like the KKK and other white supremisist groups have used the protestant religeon to spew their anit- jew, minority, catholic hatred to innocent people.

1. (Definition) A Protestant is a person -- specifically, a Christian who is NOT a Catholic.

2. (Historical Origins) First seen in the 15th Century when the German princes use Martin Luther's 95 Theses as an excuse to break Rome's rule over them by forming their own churches unaffiliated with Catholicism. Another important schism from the Catholic Church occured when Henry VIII created the Anglican Church because the pope would not allow him to divorce his wife.

3. (Word origin) The word originates from "protest" -- Protestants protested against various teachings of the Catholic Church.

All other definitions of Protestants and Protestantism, while possibly superficially correct, mostly refer to specific sects of Protestantism such as Baptists, Episcopalians and Lutherans.
Monty was Catholic until last year, when he left the church. However, he claims to have remained a Christian. Therefore, he is a Protestant.

Any christian religion that is not Catholic. They decided to create their own religion whenever they disagree instead of fixing the problem. They often put their country before God. They will be the downfall to the U.S. Despite popular belief of protestants staying with abstinence, they are more likely to loose their virginity before marriage. Often republican, even though republican beliefs are often against the 10 commandments. While democrats want to help people, protestants are more concerned with helping themselves, and can be more selective than other religions. They are often known for hating Catholics, gays, Jews, Hispanics, and other races than their own.
Sister Catherine was asking all the Catholic school children in fourth grade what they want to be when they grow up.

Little Sheila said, "When I grow up, I want to be a prostitute!"

Sister Catherine's eyes grow wide and she barked, "What did you say?!"

"A prostitute!" Sheila exclaimed.

Sister Catherine breathed a sigh of relief and said "Whew! Thank God! I thought you said 'A Protestant'!"

Scottish protestants are a minority grouping of mainly working class and unemployed individuals with little grasp for theology beyond simple statements of hatred against other churches, nationalities and racial groups. Members were responsible for the formation of the KKK in the USA, and were at the forefront in the development of the British nazi and facist movement before and after the second world war. Many protestants chose not to fight in the second world war, citing support for Hitler and a wish to see his world view imposed on the UK.

A religon. Everyone has their own beleifs so to all the people who put bad and mean definitions for protestants they need to shut-up. Protestant follow practically the same rules as catholics.
