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'!"

n. a person who protests any injustice, usually with a high degree of enthusiasm or zealotry. Originally applied only to people protesting the constraints of the Roman Catholic Church it is now, in a kind of protest, applicable to other causes. The word "protestation" has , of course, never been constrained.

Look at all those protestants occupying Wall Street! Where are the authorities?

I think their lack of intervention means they're protestants too.

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.

Contrary to popular belief, Protestants are not all stuck up, judgmental hypocrites. Everyone who professes to follow a "religion" is a hypocrite because it is quite obvious that no human being can possibly adhere to the strict standards of any religion. However, Christians in general have earned a bad reputation for themselves by falsely declaring their love for Jesus/God and then blatantly contradicting that statement with their actions. This does not mean that there are not Protestants with sincere motives and a true love for Jesus. It is pure ignorance to discredit an entire "religion" just because of a few bad experiences.

Christians (at least Protestants) are not part of a "religion". This is because "religion" implies that you must meet a standard of good behavior to attain salvation and eternal life. We are saved because of God's grace, Jesus' sacrifice, and our faith, not because of our adherence to a set of laws. Judaism, Islam, and Mormanism are all religions, because they require the obeyance of their own particular laws. Sometimes Catholicism can be put under the category of a religion because some of them follow rituals and do things (i.e. confessional, pentenance, praying to Mary) to attain salvation.

Whoever posted that the Protestant faith was established by Henry VIII, this is a false statement. The Protestant faith was created by Martin Luther when he broke away from the Catholic church because he believe that you do not need to go through a priest to get to God. Henry VIII established the Episcopalian church on account of his selfish ambition.

Not all Protestants should be thought of as judgmental hypocrites. Think before you make sweeping generalizations. And to the person who posted that there is absolutely no evidence for the content of the Bible, this is an incredibly false statement, but that's another topic.
I am a Protestant, and I believe that Jesus is the son of God, that he died to take the penalty for the sins of the people of the world, and that you can get eternal life by trusting him with your life.
