to look through but essentially the 2 elements are that homosexuals have a right to a family so this is specifically has to do with the family sirico it's not really just an assertion about rights or a question about legality but then the 2nd element is the one that has to do with civil rights essentially having the protections that are afforded by the law or to most couples or to most family units things that have to do with you know inheritance shared tenancy of. property etc etc i mean all of these rights are rights ought to be afforded to the 2 and sexual families is what the pope said and does are really just momentous statements and momentous statements before we have we flesh this out a little bit more tell us is this a departure for the pope i mean what have his views been on civil unions for gay couples before he became pontiff. i think it's you know most of us who have been observing sort of this is unfolding during the. have seen
a very consistent. message of tolerance over usually dealing with in the environment of the church and especially having very very reactionary forces operating from the right a lot of them associated with daniel americans catholic churches the decision has been one of negotiating very difficult waters bed there has been repeated statements that clearly point in the erection of a bolt that things that most security is a it is essentially just one scene among many and that as a matter of fact almost sexual sorry children of god and almost sexual stuff to be afforded not just legal rights but essentially they still have to have access to the church and to you know the ministry of the church so i mean i think that that has been very consistent he spoke which starts in argentina really it's also in a sense very similar because he also belong to sort of a space in which political space in which westerns of rights of minorities among them. sexual minorities was actually
a very nice shoe it's worth remembering that when he visited the u.s. the one private the only one private meeting he had was actually with one of his former students and he's hosp and a gay couple which itself was something that was there was no access to the media just the gesture itself was a very very strong message and of course the catholic community is humongous and it's very very some will see this as progress others will be well and rage so how do you think it will be received in the traditional parts of the church like in in africa or latin america. i mean i 1st see a very strong reaction i don't think that the main problems will be africa and latin america and those are very big churches the latin murray can cheer each sunday greece considerably more progressive than say the american catholic church or the or the or the african church and i think that it's places like plates in
places like ball and places like the u.s. which have a very the catholic church here he's a segment of the catholic church that stands here to the right in the case of the u.s. essentially repeats many of the. themes of eventually some of them are going to venture legally some now i think the church is probably already spinning the wheels and we will hear over the next couple of hours through their mediocre ations are annoying to boyce's to complete displeasure with this because of western of gay rights as a question of abortion which might not be central to their the discussions in the catholic church are central to this church's theory that it will be the case of the polish church which already has a fairly and i'm going to stick relation with about to get in conclusion martin and is he testing the waters here is this a thumbs up from the pope or i endorse civil unions or and will this now become doctrine. no i think we're way past testing the waters but certainly we're not at
the stage of the train the stage of the 20 something that requires all ecclesiastical machinery to be aligned in to be moving however the position of the pope is something and he said this here many times but we cannot measure it by you know the impressions of the gay community or some francies garber lane we have to look at these kind of statements in the context of gay rights in places like the philippines in you know. the excluded free songs in poland which they call entity free. sones but those are the places in which the recessions of these message will simply be tremendous because it shows basically the very head of the church taking a much more slowly darrius disposition to a community that in many places under siege well they're just affairs correspondent martin gak thank you you're welcome. protesters have taken to the streets of lagos in nigeria a day after

for the past 2 weeks at this particular site here in victoria island very close to our studio peaceful protesters chanting that they want an end to police brutality they were chanting that they're going to defy the curfew that was just in place for 24 hours but what happened next the dynamic started to change that's when people dressed in camouflage gone the man all clear by the military or what kind of. security forces and this side and just started to shoot the shooting quote to you right on time my team and me found a way to hunker down and that's where we stood for that's where we were laying down for at least an hour and we could witness from that situation from that point of the size what was going on all around us and that was chaos that was panic it was a huge mass and fish are reporting from lagos for you let's bring up to speed now with some of the other stories making news around the world. the u.s.

a good thing of course for many hotels the pub owners for the hospitality industry it's really bad but the most important thing is to get the numbers down and we just don't know where the numbers are coming from. when if the numbers are correct then we have to do something about it it's probably a bit late we could have done something about it earlier in summer who knows what's happened with all the tourists that we've already sent home. the numbers are climbing and we can no longer trace the chain of infection for most so in my opinion it's the only way. the state's premier mark has stood the entire country is under threat not just varia. strewed face the danger that also here in germany the situation could soon get back to control many a warning that we are at 5 minutes before midnight so to say we need a lockdown or at least a partial lockdown. the number of new daily cases in germany is rising

and as our allies to deter potential enemies is important for us and one of the reasons why his reelection would be good for us to do. an assessment that it's in line with paul unselfish all foreign policy and never try victor we would be good news for the conservative polish government the current you asked administration sees warsaw as an essential. in a deeply trump critical europe and in return america supports poland in a number of important areas such as defense and energy security that might all change if joe biden gets elected. joe biden doesn't have many friends in the region says mayor krupa most people here are conservative and prefer trump's agenda and you know. you go like this rational business oriented approach.
