-- it's implied that Self-Righteous Preacher is, himself, Catholic.
I've always seen him more on the American Religious Right-- that whole
Protestant/Southern Baptist/Tent Revival tradition which, at times, can
be down-right distrustful of the Catholic Church (though not as much
recently).  And, you know, he is Self-Righteous Preacher, not
Self-Righteous Deacon or Self-Righteous Father.

Are there any other stories I might be missing where SRP's denomination
is specified or implied?  Basically, the story I have in mind has him
meeting either the Pope or an Archangel (both of which I think have
equal comic potential), and the question of Catholic/Protestant is the
one that would tip it one way or the other.
