Pope Francis' 'very significant' comments on same-sex unions

Clip: 10/21/2020 | 4m 2s

In a new documentary, Pope Francis makes remarks that represent an increased level of support for same-sex unions and legal protections. The statements seem to be at odds with official teachings of the Catholic Church, whose doctrine still contends that marriage is between a man and a woman. William Brangham reports and talks to Fordham University’s David Gibson, who has long covered the Vatican.
