Why was the Protestant-Catholic divide not as prominent in Germany as in Ireland?

In America, first Catholics arrived and later arrived protestant.... Not many protestant at all in San Agustín, Florida in 1565 or in 1695.... neither Tucsón, Alburquerque or San Antonio...
I was thinking more in the way that the same happened in America with the taking of land from the native population.
