VIDEO: GLAAD President Herndon Graddick quoted in CNN piece on new Pope

CNN's Erin Burnett tonight quoted GLAAD President Herndon Graddick in a piece about the election of Pope Francis. In the quote, Graddick said, "Pope Francis called adoption by gay and lesbian people a form of discrimination against children. The real discrimination against children is the pedophilia that has run rampant in the Catholic Church with little more than collusion from the Vatican."
