Yes, Don't Call Protestants Christians
Greek-Schismatics Are Also Not Christians
You have published an excellent piece concerning Protestant "Christians," titled Please, Don't Call Protestants Christians. This tactic is also widely used to fool unsuspecting Latin Rite Catholics who are exposed to Byzantine Rites. Both Greek-Schismatic and friendly Uniate Churches use the title "Eastern Christian." This is an attempt to confuse those who are ignorant of apostolic Eastern Catholic Rites. It is a way to promote acceptance of Schismatic errors to the detriment of our true Eastern Catholic brethren, who are suffering scorn and persecution under the permissive watch of their own "Holy Father."
As for the big, happy Catholic-Protestant family? I would ask any Protestant: Can a priest call down your God onto an altar? For life everlasting, does your God provide His actual Body and Blood for you to eat and drink under the appearances of bread and wine? This is not their God, they will tell you themselves.
Protestants want God without the Church. Greek-Schismatics want the Church without the Pope. Progressives want a Pope without God.
Dear Dr. Horvat,
I simply want to say thank you for so principally and dutifully pointing out that protestants are not Christians. This is something that I feel is so neglected I had actually planned on writing a book about this very important subject.
In accordance with the same letter of St. John you cited, I will not even say God bless you to non-Catholics for: "If any man come to you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house nor say to him, God speed you. For he that saith unto him, God speed you, communicateth with his wicked works" (2 John 1:10-11).
All the same, the work could not come at a better time. It is some consolation to read such stalwart writing at this difficult time, especially when I have had Novus Ordo clergy who tell me I am not Catholic since I attend an SSPX chapel. May Our Lady guide us to Victory at last!
God be with you and all at TIA.
Sincerely in Christ the King,
No Jesus without Mary
I enjoyed your article very much. I have long thought that one of the surest signs of the false Christianity which Protestants profess is their corruption of the salutation that St. Gabriel gave to the Blessed Virgin. I have yet to see a Protestant version of the Bible that fails to denigrate her with words like "favored one" or "highly blessed" or some other drivel.
Not long ago, I had the occasion to see a new "Catholic" Bible that also struck the unique title of "full of grace" and substituted it with some other nonsense. If Protestants can't accept her and her role, they are sadly doomed to remain reprobates.
Of course, you know all of this. Just wanted to let you know that I concur with your stand completely.

What Do We Call Mahony and the Like?
Dear Dr. Horvat,
Your recent article advising Catholics to avoid calling Protestants Christians raises the question of what to call those who accept the errors introduced following the Second Vatican Council.
These people are popularly called Catholics and almost always call themselves that. However, they often accept practices and beliefs that conflict with those of traditional Catholics. Moreover, their leaders sometimes specifically state that traditional Catholics are excluded from membership. Thus, they are sometimes more openly hostile to Catholic teachings and practices than even Protestants of good will are.
What is a handy term for the class including, for example, Roger Mahony or John Kerry?
