Cardinal Timothy Dolan sounded off on several issues facing the Roman Catholic church in an interview set to air Sunday.

Sitting down with NBC's "Meet the Press," Dolan said that the Church has been "outmarketed" on the issue of same-sex marriage.

As more states move to legalize same-sex marriage, Dolan maintained that the Church still strongly supports traditional marriage, but he said that they have been unfairly portrayed as prejudiced against the gay community.

Dolan also touched on several other issues in the interview, including contraception and the Affordable Care Act.

"We Catholics, who are kind of among the pros when it comes to providing health care, do it because of our religious conviction and because of the dictates of our conscience, and now, we're being asked to violate some of those," Dolan said. "So that's where we began to worry and draw back and say, 'Mr. President, please, you're really kind of pushing aside some of your greatest supporters here.'"

The interview is scheduled to air Sunday morning on NBC.
