Pope talk emphasises gender roles


The Pope has said that "saving" humanity from homosexual or transsexual behaviour is just as important as saving the rainforests. In his end-of-year address to senior Vatican staff he said that defending God's creation is not limited to saving the environment, but also protecting man from self-destruction. Joanna Bogle, a columnist with the Catholic Times, and Cristina Odone, a writer and broadcaster who used to edit the Catholic Herald, discuss the Pope's address.
