comment Catholicism and Christianity
@warren How would you respond to a Hindu or Muslim who said that Christianity claiming to have the "fullness of truth" over and above other religions was "a bit haughty"?

Camilla was never a Catholic, despite widespread internet rumours. Her first husband was Catholic, and her children were raised Catholic, but Camilla never was.

comment Why did the authors of the London Baptist Confession of 1689 callout the pope as being the antichrist?
You do note that the quote doesn't refer to 'the antichrist' in the singular, as your question claims it does? 'That antichrist [...] that exalteth' can be taken as mean 'he is the specific antichrist who exalts' i.e. they are specifying which particular antichrist (possibly among many) he is.

As a technicality, the state church of England is the Church of England, not the Anglican Tradition. Likewise the church of Scotland. Other Episcopalian/Presbyterian churches don't get special treatment.

@Caleb Anabaptists generally believe in distinct roles for State and Church. It's not a separation in the same sense as the US Constitution, but a separation nonetheless.

The separation of Church and State is really a US political concept, not a Christian one. A good answer here would probably need to talk about Romans 13, Augustine and the City of God, the Anabaptist idea of the different roles of church and state.

revised According to reformed theology, why are certain important doctrines not “obvious”? [i.e. why does the Westminister Confession even exist?]

comment Besides works versus grace and indulgences, what were the external practices of the Catholics that offended so many reformers?
Just a suggestion - would it be worth doing this with a community wiki answer? I can think of several more issues over and above the ones in jcohen79's excellent answer.
