The Bishop's Husband...
I'm not trying to be a jerk here - but Vicki Gene Robinson, the 'married' gay, non-celibate Episcopal 'bishop' is resigning to be with his 'husband'. Kind of like the ill fated Duke and Duchess of Windsor tale - 'resigning for the man I love.' Kinda, sorta. I do not like weakness in kings and prelates, call me old fashioned. More seriously, Robinson suggests/hints, at all the trouble his appointment as bishop caused as another factor for his resignation - which will only be effective in 2 years.
Why didn't he stop and think about all the drama he would cause before it came to this? Oh wait, maybe he did.
.- Citing the toll that worldwide publicity has taken on his “marriage” and on New Hampshire Episcopalians, Gene Robinson – the first openly homosexual man to become a bishop of the Episcopal Church – announced on Nov. 6 that he will begin a two-year process of resigning from his diocese. - Read the rest here.
