In the UK we take a different view, I am pleased to say: when Westminster Cathedral choir sing at St Paul's Cathedral and when St Paul's reciprocate (as they each do twice a year ) they refer to the choir of St Paul's Cathedral, and the same when other Anglican churches visit them. They at least have the civility to recognise the designation that the denominations themselves attach to their buildings, without using it as an opportunity to make unnecessary point-scoring about apostolic succession.
Of course they do. If I visited a Anglican cathedral I would call it that, it would be silly and intentionally 'point-scoring' to do anything else. But if you asked me to name all the Cathedrals in the world, I would not think to include the Anglican's or the Lutheran's churches, but only those churches with apostolic succession.
Forgive me if I came off the wrong way. He asked if Cathedrals could be protestant. I didn't think they could be and supported my argument. Sorry, I disagree with you, but I certainly didn't mean to be 'point-scoring'.
And I probably shouldn't say anything about this but... The way you say "In the UK" makes it sound like you think that the UK is somehow superior to the US. Maybe I am just reading into it a bit much, but this kind of language really upsets me. You don't speak for the entirety of the UK, don't pretend to. I don't pretend to speak for the entirety of the U.S., don't pretend I do. Neither are the people of the UK in anyway superior to the people of the U.S. Stop talking as if they are. please.
