A Gay Priest Fights For A Place Within The Catholic Church
As the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics get a new leader, Dick speaks with an Irish priest who came out as gay after he made his vows to the Catholic Church. He chose to stay in the church - "it is my church, too," he says - and presses from inside for change regarding the place of women and gays in the church.
