    20 years ago? I think not.

    Maybe 50 years ago. 20 years ago there was already a well established gay community with support for those coming out.

    Then again Mr Robinson is religious so probably it was more difficult for him.

  2. I admire this brave man very much.

    He’s not really brave. He chooses to work in the superstition industry. He would have a much nicer life if he worked in the real world and stopped tryin to reason with godbotherers.

    Simon Murphy,
    Whatever you think of Gene Robinson, his light shines far brighter than your dull glow which will flicker and snuff-out when you snuff-it! Gene will leave a legacy of love. Simon Murphy’s legacy will be HATE!

    I admire this man. He is working to make his church a place for everyone. Some are believers some are not–one size does not fit all. You GO, Gene!
