Former Milwaukee archbishop Dolan denounces Obama gay marriage stance

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED May 10, 2012

NEW YORK - Former Milwaukee Archbishop and current New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan called President Barack Obama's comments in favor of gay marriage "deeply saddening."

In a statement, Dolan said that Mr. Obama's words are "not surprising since they follow upon various actions already taken by his Administration that erode or ignore the unique meaning of marriage.

"I pray for the President every day, and will continue to pray that he and his Administration act justly to uphold and protect marriage as the union of one man and one woman."

The President said in a televised interview ""it is important for me personally to go ahead and affirm that same-sex couples should be able to get married."
