Gaudium de veritate,
If Protestant Trinitarians knew what the Catholic Church has done and is doing to guard the precious doctrine of Christ's divinity I think they would be less inclined to bash the Catholic Church.
I use to post on an anti-trinitarian forum where Trinitarians were the minority. One guy came there who went by the name "CatholicApologist." He really demolished the arguments of the anti-trinitarians. Furthermore, he posted links to articles by Catholic scholars. I read them all and I was very impressed by those articles. I found more articles by Catholic scholars on my own. The arguments in those articles were like nothing I had ever seen in all of Protestantism. Protestant scholars cannot hold a candle to Catholic scholars when it comes to defending the doctrine of the Trinity and especially the divinity of our precious Lord Jesus.
Since then I have a newly found appreciation for Catholics even though I locked horns with "CatholicApologist" on the subject of justification by faith. Since that experience I go by Jesus' principle, "Whosoever is not against us is for us."
