"Only 17 per cent of Germans polled said they still trust the Catholic Church, compared to 29 per cent in late January, just before the first abuse cases were made public, according to [a] Stern magazine poll.
Many Germans also have lost confidence in the pope, the poll showed. Only 24 per cent still trust him, while six weeks ago 38 per cent said they did.
Some 1,508 persons were interviewed for the poll last week. The margin of error was plus or minus 2.5 per cent."
