“I tell the gay community I love you very much, and every single morning when I say my morning prayers, I pray for the health of all New Yorkers and they are part of that. I am very grateful for the presence of so many gay Catholics who are heroically trying to live their faith.”
— New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan, on the new gay marriage law.
