"Well, I think maybe we've been out-marketed, sometimes. We've been caricatured as being anti-gay. And as much as we'd say, 'Wait a minute, we're pro-marriage, we're pro-traditional marriage, we're not anti-anybody,' I don't know. When you have forces like Hollywood, when you have forces like politicians, when you have forces like some opinion-molders that are behind it, it's a tough battle."

-- Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, speaking yesterday on NBC's Meet the Press after host David Gregory asked whether the Catholic Church is "losing the argument" against marriage equality.
