Why Do Protestants Hate Catholics?

Answer

Anti-Protestantism originated in a reaction by the Catholic Church against the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century. Protestants were denounced as heretics and subject to persecution in some territories, such as Spain, Italy and the Netherlands, in which the Catholics were the dominant power. This movement was orchestrated by Popes and Princes as the counter reformation.

It is difficult to generalize the feelings and attitudes of one’s religious group to another. The Protestants separated from the Catholic Church in the 1600’s as they viewed them as non-believers, and did not approve of the lavish lives which the Catholic priests lived. However, opinions of individuals vary depending on what they see, hear, feel and experience.
