David Quinn: So-called liberals have now joined the Paisley crusade

IAN Paisley is in Scotland, protesting against the Pope's visit. No surprise there. We all know that Paisley is a rabid anti-Catholic of longstanding, so what else would you expect?

But Paisley is a throw-back. His hard-line anti-Catholic Protestantism hardly exists in Britain any more and is fading even in the North. But it is being replaced by something else. Instead of Protestant anti-Catholicism, we now have secular anti-Catholicism.

The modern successors to Ian Paisley are militant atheists, such as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, and militant gay activists like Peter Tatchell. Their contempt for Catholicism (and all orthodox religion) knows no bounds.
