Your right, there are Catholics who misrepresent some of Protestant ecclesiology. Not all of Protestants have the same interpretation of Sola Scriptura, or Sola Fide.
There is no universal understanding of the Protestant position as it does have many versions. That is why there it is so easy to misrepresent it or categorize it all as somehow off.
I do understand how you can feel frustrated by caricatures of the Protestant position and we all should have respect for each others postion. It shames me to see Catholics ridiculing Protestants in their position, and coming from a position outside the Church then coming back to it I feel I have a better appreciation for Protestants. They are our separated bretheren.
On the other hand, many attacks about the Catholic Church use misinformation, and misrepresentation to make a point, with no effort used to find out what the actual Catholic position is.
It is a completely different situation as it is easy to find out what the official Catholic position is. When I was outside the Church anyone who I knew outside the Church wouldn’t touch anything “Catholic”, read or check to see what was the official position of the Church. I struggle with this all the time as people like to inform me what the Catholic Church teaches, direct from Dave Hunt.
Where is the official Protestant position, any Protestants position can be contested by a different one from a different Protestant faith tradition.
We should all be concerned with what is the truth and be willing to follow that truth anywhere.
Or maybe you are just stating an unbiased view on things, in which case I state my post as addressed to the Protestant position.
