"RE: Steve C: 02.25.24: why protestants convert to catholicism"

I concur with your conclusions.
It is sad, but true, yet very dangerous for those you described, to either say on the cruise ship, or to drift over to mamma Rome.
It also makes the old satirical nursery rhyme, about the pope, and people returning to Rome, come true before our eyes, today.

Little Bo peep has lost her sheep
And can't tell where to find them
Leave them alone and they’ll come home,
Wagging their tails behind them
