Gerry the Prod?

An article in today's BT (quoted here at the Indy) attributes some interesting quotes to Gerry Adams talking about faith with Gay Byrne as part of a series on the spiritual beliefs of public figures.

"I have formed an opinion," he says to Byrne, "and it's probably a Protestant thing, that the notions of having some sort of middle-man isn't altogether necessary." He admits he hasn't gone to confession "in years," preferring to speak directly with God.

When asked on the matter of Transubstantiation and whether the elements are the real body of Jesus Christ, he replied unconvincingly "Who knows?"

With these comments perhaps alienating some ardent Catholics, and McGuinness seen by many nationalists to be 'in bed' with the DUPers, just how are SF perceived amongst their traditional base? I'd love to see some poll data...
