You underestimate the lingering resentment toward Rome

Rest assured that for many people, hatred of the Catholic Church has been festering for five-hundred years, being passed down generation to generation. When I first came to North Carolina, the KKK had a sign welcoming people to Smithfield. The image of a midnight rider was surrounded by words assuring everyone that they were fighting "Communism, Integration, and Papism." (Catholicism) Lest you think that such strong beliefs are reserved for the lunatic fringe element, remember that British law currently prohibits a Catholic from ascending to the throne, or marrying a Catholic while seated upon the throne. Still, there's nothing sillier than Catholics fighting with Protestants or Sunnis battling Shia'ites over who is holier.
