Anglo Catholic Answer

The Eastern Orthodox Churches, the Anglican churches, the Roman Catholic Church (and those Eastern Churches in union with the Roman Church) as well as some other smaller groups of Catholics such as Old Catholics from the See of Utrecht. I have named the main traditions.

Members of protestant churches who are baptized correctly in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost are also members of the Catholic Church in an extended sense: although they're faith communities are not valid Catholic traditions, their baptism makes them regenerate in Christ Jesus and hence members of the Catholic Church even if their traditions are not Catholic.

Roman Catholic AnswerThe Church is comprised of "Rites", there are four historic rites, known as parent rites: Antiochene, Alexandrine, Roman, and Gallican; in all there are nine recognized rites, each having its own right and proper way of doings things: Latin, Byzantine, Armenian, Chaldean, Coptic, Ethiopic, Malabar, Maronite, and Syrian rites. All of these, except Maronite, are used by numbers of Christians who are no longer Catholics (they do not acknowledge the Holy Father as Christ's Vicar on earth): these would include those protestant churches mentioned above in the "Anglo" Catholic Answer, the Orthodox, and other separated rites such as Old Catholics, Polish National Catholics, and I'm not sure of the present state of the Society of Saint Pius X.

What is a Catholic Protestant?

At first glance many people think a Catholic Protestant is a contadiction in terms. However there are Protestant (or Reformed) people and churches that identify as Catholic but not Roman Catholic. Catholic means 'universal' or 'general', so some Protestants regard themselves as catholic in the sense of being part of the universal church of Christ. There is also an Anglican church not centred on the Archbishop of Canterbury or the Anglican Communion called the Anglican Catholic Church. The Anglican Communion itself points out that a Catholic that follows the Bishop of Rome (usually called the Pope) is a Roman Catholic where-as they identify as Anglican Catholic. To quote the Anglican Church of Ireland website:"The Church of Ireland is Catholic because it is in possession of a continuous tradition of faith and practice, based on Scripture and early traditions, enshrined in the Catholic Creeds, together with the sacraments and apostolic ministry.".Catholic AnswerA Catholic Protestant remains an oxymoron as there is only one Catholic Church - by Our Blessed Lord's own definition - and a protestant, by definition, is someone whose religion is protesting the Catholic Church. Redefining terms and saying that all truth is relative helps no one, and doesn't make any sense anyway.
