* Averted in ''CrossAndPoppy'' which, admittedly, involves a lot of Church of England politics as part of the plot.
** Brian "The Breener" Maguire is. So of course is that "Socrates in a Roman Collar," Monsignor Folan.
** But the C of E is front and center, in all its factions (and if there is [[TheHero a single hero]] in the work at all, it's the Anglo-Catholic rector), alongside a cast full of atheists, agnostics, Sunni Muslims, Methodists, and other Non-Conformists.


Added DiffLines:

* Naturally averted in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series, that series being after all British. There is a small RC congregation centered in Beechbourne, under dear Mgr Folan; there are Jews and Muslims, there are Nonconformists, there are plenty of the unchurched; but such Christian observance as there is in the district is Established, C of E, and so High Church as to make "Anglo-Catholic" an inadequate description. The real conflicts in the series on the ecclesiastical front, although waged with respect and affection, are between these parishes (which are also traditionalist, and under the Alternative Episcopal Oversight of Ebbsfleet) and trendier parishes, including the adjoining benefice in the market town of Beechbourne (Team Rector: Canon Judith "I need your approval like a fish needs a chasuble" Potecary).

* Subverted in Crusader Kings 2. While the base game focuses on the crusading catholics, the game features all 4 major branches of the game (Catholicism, Orthodoxism, Monophysitism and Nestorianism) as playable religions; however, Catholicism and Orthodoxism are by far the most widely spread branches of the christian faith. They also have a bunch of historical heresies (catharism for catholicism, iconoclasm for orthodoxism), which, if powerful enough, can become the new main faith of their branch.

** Also, the byzantine/roman emperor can mend the great schism, turning catholicism into a heresy, effectively turning the trope into "Christianity Is Orthodox" in-universe.

* Creator/LaurenKate's ''Rapture'' has a scene in Moscow's (Orthodox) church of Christ the Saviour where the church is full of waxed wooden pews and organs are playing. There are actually very few benches in Orthodox churches, usually at the back, for elderly or ill people. The rest stand during the whole mass (and kneel, when appropriate). Furthermore, there are no organs in Orthodox churches. Or any other musical instruments. People sing and that's all. Finally, this scene is supposed to happen [[CriticalResearchFailure in the 1930s]], [[DirtyCommunists at the height of Stalin's power]].

* ''WebVideo/RegularCarReviews'' delivers its entire [=RAV4=] episode in a booming, judgmental voice like a hell-and-brimstone preacher, and makes specific references to the Catholic church. Then it devolves into full-on parody of this trope by implying that Protestants are heathens who repurpose their Bibles as coloring books.



** In fact, "The Father, the Son and the Holy Fonz" suggested that the entire family is Catholic, sans Lois, who is Protestant, and Brian, who is an atheist (apparently, although this was mentioned in a later episode). In fact, Lois being Protestant was the main (and probably only) reason of why Francis hated her so much. Curiously, Lois sometimes is seen trying to convince the rest of the Griffins to go to (a Catholic) church. [[FridgeLogic Wouldn't he be happy she converted?]]

* The [[UsefulNotes/AmericanCourts United States Supreme Court]] has, for the first time in its history, no Protestant judges. In fact, it has six Catholics and three [[YouHaveToHaveJews Jews]] (for context, the Court is now over 33 percent Jewish, while the nation they represent is ''less than'' 3 percent Jewish!). Oddly enough, the nation has had only one Catholic President out of 43. Kennedy's religion was a matter of controversy at the time, as Americans have been traditionally wary of Catholicism's recognition of a European figure as a seat of authority (the Pope). UsefulNotes/JoeBiden is the first Catholic Vice President, out of 47 Vice Presidents.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' series has many Catholic-ish cathedrals, churches, shrines and altars you walk through on your quest. This is especially prevalent in the third installment. [[spoiler: Not to mention that there's a boss in Dark Souls III named ''Pontiff'' Sulyvahn]].

Added DiffLines:

* Zigzagged in ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos''. The Christian sect of Marmolims in Episode 69 is pretty clearly Catholic. However, the Angel Federation itself is rather anviliciously based on right-wing evangelical Christianity.

* The heroes of ''Literature/LeftBehind'' are primarily Protestant or converted Jews and Muslims, with only the Catholic pope before Peter Mathews and the priest of a Catholic congregation in South America being CaughtUpInTheRapture while the majority of Catholics become part of the CorruptChurch known as Enigma Babylon One World Faith. Leonardo Fortunato, the False Prophet, was raised on Catholicism, but he mostly liked it for the tradition of its priests wearing robes, so it's no surprise that when he became the High Reverend Father of Carpathianism, he was starting to dress in rather fanciful religious robes that try to incorporate every possible religious symbol except for Christianity and Judaism.
