Doug Sirman responds…

to my puzzled question about why so many Protestants are fascinated with the internal workings of a communion to which they don’t belong.

Doug (a Protestant himself, though with Romish leanings) writes:

Good question. Frankly, I believe that many prots see the Roman Catholic Church as “Mother Church” even if they won’t consciously admit it. Like caring what happens in your home town, even though you don’t live there anymore.

Okay. I can buy that.
