Then either Jim Noble is not a Catholic, or you evidently failed to consider the disparaging remark about Protestants is a typical Cath one.
The problem you need to face is that this isn't the first time Protestantism has gone down this trajectory. The Unitarians were originally Massachusetts Puritan Calvinists. Look it up. What happened? Similarly, Calvinism in its original European homes (Scotland and the Netherlands) is moribund. What happened?
The problem you need to face is that by your logic Catholicism is to be blamed, for Protestants were originally Catholic! Obviously, the issue is whether the change occurred because of faithfulness to basic distinctive defining aspects of the original or dissent from them. You cannot make Unitarianism or other liberals or moribund faith a product of faithfully following SS and its consequential and preaching of the gospel and accompanying doctrine of sola fide, defined as a faith that effects holiness and obedience, but you can blame conservative evangelicalism on it, and its and contention of basic Truths we both affirm.
And as for faith being moribund, wanna look at Italy ?
