A person who seriously engages in the hobby of protesting. They run around screaming trying to change the world by getting "them" to do the right thing instead of finishing college, getting a job, or running for office.
My last girlfriend was mad about the environment, the War, and animal rights, so instead of working she went to meetings with other angry protesters.

Branch of Christianity. Protestants believe that Jesus is the head of the Church. They reject Papal authority and the percieved excesses of the Catholic church.
Protestants are also remarkably unpopular amongst a great deal of people due to the actions of a small number of them. But in the most part they are simply Christians who wish to worship without a central authority, without a buffer between man and God and without the ritualism of other branches of the faith.
Jack became a Protestant after attending a Church sermon.

There are tensions in Ireland between Catholic and Protestant groups.

A part of Christianity that separated from the Catholic church in the 1600's.It was founded by Martin Luther, but then different sects broke off. Henry VIII did not start the Episcopalian Church,he started the Anglican church of which the Episcopalian church is a part. As we all hopefully realize, people are not perfect, so you can't hate a religion because someone was mean to you and they happened to be protestant of Christian. Protestants try not to identify themselves a sect, and are trying to follow Christ. They thing that it is more important that you are a Christian and know Jesus than what denomination you happen to be part of. We do not hate Catholics, Jews, or Gays. We try to love all people, whether or not we agree with them. Protestants usually do not agree with the gay lifestyle, but that doesn't mean that we hate them. Basically, try not to judge someone or something, such as protestantism, before you know about it.

I am not a Christian myself, but I see that some of you are mistaking Protestants for being highnosed killjoys or whatever (maybe some of them are, but...). The truth is, being a protestant does not mean you're being a goodie-little-two-shoes. The difference between Catholics and Protestants is that Protestants aren't as 'faithful'. For example, they reject Papal authority. They also have priestesses and allow priests to marriage.

Basically the whole Protestant concept is that all you need to do is believe in and be faithful to god. It is then that your sins will be forgiven. Back in the 16th century, the Church sold indulgences, claiming that if you bought them, god will forgive you. Luther didn't think this was right. He thought that the Church was manipulating the people so that they could raise money for the St. Peter's Cathedral in Rome! And so he protested against the church authorities, claiming that you didn't need these indulgences. Nor did you have to attend regular masses, do pilgrimage or worship holy relics. "In a way everyone is their own temple." was his quote.
Luther's argument caused an uproar in society. The people were already sick of paying the church taxes, so they too revolted. The Reformation followed, although originally, Martin Luther never intended a revolution...

As I have learned from Urban Dictionary, the conflict between Catholics and Protestants still goes on to this very day. I hope this has opened some of your eyes and that in near future there will finally be peace between Catholics and Protestants.

If you don't think I am right about this, just google Martin Luther or next time, pay attention in history.

PS: I do understand that there are some Protestants that do wrong against Jews/Gays or anyone who is different. I find this extremely disturbing; it is not right. But then there are also catholic people like that. You find them everywhere, ...trust me.
Protestant: You Christians suck I hate you! Kill all the gays blablabla

A temporary gathering of people designed to speak out against a cause or political event. Rarely works because the politicians who are being protested against usually send the riot police to "calm down" the protesters.
Nowadays, protests are held for the stupidest of reasons, such as censoring a cartoon that is beng shown on some television show, or preventing a grocery store from being built on an old parking lot, or animal rights.
