Isn't Desmond an archbishop? Maybe I wrongly assumed that most who went to see him believe in the God that he does.

Yeah, he is an archbishop. However, he is more commonly celebrated for some of the commendable things he has done socially like his contributions to ending apartheid, etc. than he is revered for being a Christian leader.

I'm sure there were some Christians there Saturday, but the only evidence of any religion would have to be secular humanism. It was about what we can do rather than what God can do to bring peace. Even the action was walking rather than praying. Just read the quotes in this article:

The issue is that moralism (our self efforts at righteousness) sounds good and is touchy-feely,but it stands in opposition to the gospel and is ultimately ineffective.
