Grand Marshal of the Episcopal PRIDE parade

Though just elected for the Episcopal diocese of New Hampshire, Gene Robinson travels almost as much as Pope J0hn Paul II did, spending much of his time talking about the Christian churches and homosexuality. I keep thinking, though, that he'd have a lot more luck converting his detractors if he showed them what a good (gay and partnered) local bishop he could be instead of being the Big Gay Bishop of the World. (We already have Troy Perry of the Metropolitan Community Church for that--even if he is retired.)

Still, he is quotable, at St. Martin-in-the-Fields in London: “We are seeing so many Roman Catholics joining the [Episcopal] church. Pope Ratzinger may be the best thing that ever happened to the Episcopal Church." Meow.

And: ""I find it so vile that they think [the Roman Catholic bishops] are going to end the child abuse scandal by throwing out homosexuals from seminaries.” Me, too.
