Benedict's brave defenders in the English episcopacy

Archbishop Peter Smith:

I’ve always said, thank God in this country we have free speech. They are perfectly entitled to protest. What I would ask of all of them is to do so in a dignified way, which does not disrupt the joy of the Catholic community in welcoming the pope. I hope they would show respect to those of us who do have [religious] convictions.

...and gallantly he chickened out...

(thanks Zach)
