Gene Robinson Not sure if anyone has brought this up yet. If so, sorry for re-posting! It's GLBT Month & for each day of the month the website created around this posts up a new GLBT Icon for each day of the month with a mini-biography about them. I found it very interesting so I decided to share this with other people. This is todays: First openly gay Episcopal bishop b. May 29, 1947 “It’s not so much a dream as a ing from God.” In 2003, The Rt. Rev.V. Gene Robinson was elected bishop of the diocese of New Hampshire, making him the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. His ordination caused a global rift within the Episcopal Church and led to international debate about the inclusion of gay clergy in church hierarchy. In the weeks leading up to his consecration, Robinson received hate mail and death threats, triggering the FBI to place him under 24hour protection. Gene Robinson grew up outside Lexington, Kentucky. The son of poor tobacco sharecroppers, he was raised without running water or indoor plumbing. He res his hood as rustic and religious, with Sunday school and services at a small Disciples of Christ congregation. Robinson earned his bachelor’s degree in American studies from the University of the South and his Master of Divinity from the Episcopal General Theological Seminary in New York. He was ordained a priest in 1973. Despite doubts about his sexual orientation, Robinson married in 1972. He and his wife moved to New Hampshire where they raised daughters. Robinson worked as youth ministries coordinator for the dioceses of New England and cofounded the national Episcopal Youth Event. Robinson divorced his wife and came out in the mid-1980s. Robinson is the coauthor of three AIDS education curricula. In Uganda, he helped set up a national peer counseling program for AIDS educators working with religious institutions. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force honored Robinson with a Leadership Award in 2004. In 2007, he received the Flag Bearer Award from Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays-PFLAG-for leadership and inclusion in faith communities. In 2008, Bishop Robinson and Mark Andrews-partners of more than 19 years-exchanged vows in a civil union ceremony in New Hampshire.

    Speaking of difficult relationships The movie "For the Bible Tells Me So" has a great quick biographical portrait of Bishop Robinson. I particularly respected the careful process he went through in ending his marriage. We have so many examples of breakups done badly, it's good to see someone treat the people they love with thoughtfulness and respect. Even his ex-wife had nothing bad to say about him and she sounded like she respected and supported him and was not unduly damaged in their breakup.

    I had never heard of him until today when I went on the website. A friend had told me about the site at the begining of the month and I never got around to checking out til today. I was actually pretty shocked reading the little bit about him. I have never heard of a religion being support of homosexuality let alone appoint an openly gay bishop... But then again I don't really know much about religion.

    I worked with Gene on a committee once He facilitated the committee well and was delightful. It was during the time that he was of the final 4 candidates for Bishop. During our lunch break I wandered to a bulletin board, read the bios, and realized at that point that of the bios was of the man facilitating the group. It was several years before I came out to myself, but had come to the point of realizing that God s people of all sexual orientations to ministry, and for some reason God does not seem concerned about sexual orientation at all, despite the (perhaps misinterpreted/translated) bible verses so often quoted.
