What are Protestant Christians?
Protestants are a branch of Christianity. They are called Protestants because they protested against the Roman Catholic church (think 1500s), which was saying that you could buy salvation from them, instead of getting it from Jesus. The Roman Catholic church has since gone through it's own reformation, so it doesn't do that anymore, but the point is that Protestantism was formed then, and is still here today. Some of their beliefs are different from Catholicism, but they still hold the basic parts that make them part of Christianity.
