This is a reasonably good and fair comparison between Catholics and Protestants.

I have a few quibbles (of course). The Eucharist is the real presence but is also a symbol (an efficacious symbol). It can be confected only (1) by priests (ordained in unbroken apostolic succession) and (2) in the *Sacrifice* of the Mass. Confession via a priest provides objective absolution (unlike private confession directly to God). Protestants asking others to pray for them, like Catholics, are asking for intercessory prayer. Etc.

I don't say it enough, but I am always happy to explore these topics further.

In this case (the video or my comments) with Catholics, Protestants (which I was born into and remained for over 5 decades), and everyone else!
