CV comments on papal protesters

The BBC tours the anti-Pope protesters, and quotes CV as follows:

Austen Ivereigh, co-ordinator of Catholic Voices - a group set up to put the Church's view during the visit- said Protest the Pope was a loosely-aligned group with an intellectual position that had no popular support. "What drives the secularists is a fear of faith in the public sphere, but I don't think any of them represent serious public opinion," he told the BBC. "Most people are open to religion, even if they are not religious themselves."
