I normally do not reply to attacks in the media, but Sandro Magister is a respected Italian conservative with very good sources in the Vatican, so I want to correct a reference he made to me.

The issue is especially pressing in Africa, where Nigeria recently adopted harsh prison terms for people in same-sex relationships.
