Boston Archbishop Sean O'Malley is calling for an end to prejudice against gays.
In a letter sent to the nearly 300 parishes in the Boston Archdiocese, O'Malley says he doesn't want gays to feel like the church discriminates against them despite its opposition to same-sex marriage. O'Malley says the church's opposition to gay marriage is not based on hostility toward homosexuals but on the conviction that marriage between a man and a woman is important for children and society.
O'Malley says many homosexuals in the church lead holy lives. But a policy to be announced by the Vatican next week reportedly will tighten rules excluding them from the priesthood.
