Bishop Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, announced Thursday that he is endorsing Barack Obama for president.
Robinson said that he chose Obama because of his faith and background in civil rights.
"Barack Obama sees beyond the partisanship and hopelessness that have dominated in recent years, and the movement he's building is bringing vital new energy and optimism into our democratic process," Robinson said.
We all know about the separation of Church and State outrage over Bishop Tobin's comments. What will happen now? Will the tax exempt status of his diocese be challenged? I doubt it. Hmmm...double standard anyone?
