O'Malley says sadness over gay marriage should not translate to anger
By Associated Press

Archbishop Sean O'Malley says the start of gay marriage in Massachusetts should be marked with sadness, but not anger.

The leader of Boston's Roman Catholic archdiocese says the church remains committed to the idea that marriage is the bond between a man and a woman and should have special protections and benefits under the law.

In a statement released today, O'Malley urged Catholics not to villify any group of people, especially ``our homosexual brothers and sisters.''

He said Catholics should not be led into anger even if they do not agree with everyone's opinion or accept everyone's behavior.
