Gene Robinson, the openly gay bishop of New Hampshire whose consecration set off a firestorm in the Anglican Communion, dissed the new Province in a recent interview. Robinson, derisively known as the “Simple County Bishop” (SCB) by conservative Anglicans, said in an interview that
“A church that does not ordain women or openly gay people – I don’t see a future for that.”
Oh yes, Gene… because that’s been a huge problem for the Catholic and Orthodox churches in the past 2,000 years!
Robinson could not explain why the Episcopal Church only gets smaller and smaller as it becomes more and more “inclusive”.
