Pope Francis Comments on Gays | Video

Video: Are the Pope's Comments on Gays a Sign of More Tolerant Times?

Pope Francis is already making a startling impact in the first few months of his tenure by openly reaching out to the gay community.

We're reviewing all the recent milestones and setbacks in the gay rights movement to find out where the world stands on this hot-button issue.
