How many Protestants were martyred by Catholics?   

Martyred in the name of diabolical confusion, you mean?

Oh, that's right, when someone is killed because of their faith it has to be the true faith for them to be a martyr......

"No one, whatever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has remained in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church" (Ecumenical Council of Florence, Cantate Domino, 4 February 1441: Denz. 714).

"A person who chooses to suffer, even to die, rather than renounce his or her faith or Christian principles.  After the example of Christ one does not resist one's persecutors when they use violence out of hatred or malice against Christ, or his Church, or some revealed truth of the Catholic religion. (Etym. Greek martyros, witness, martyr.)" (Fr. Hardon, Modern Catholic Dictionary, Martyr).
