Another bishop said that in his diocese he will never have to deal with gay marriage. I told him, you don’t know where this is going. Gay marriage could go to the Supreme Court, it could become the law of the land. Maybe part of your responsibility is to get your people ready for where the country is going.(Emphasis mine A/O)
-V. Gene Robinson Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire
An interesting concept of a bishop's duty, to lead your people into conformity with society's evolving standards. In very few words this says so much about the Episcopal Church.
