Bishop Gene Robinson is one of the world’s great LGBT advocates, a pioneer, and the first openly Gay man ever elevated to Bishop.  He is the Episcopal Bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire and the first priest in an openly-gay relationship to be ordained as a bishop in a major Christian denomination. A native of Kentucky, Robinson earned degrees from the University of the South and the General Theological Seminary in New York. He was elected bishop by the New Hampshire diocese in 2003 and in 2009 gave the invocation at Barack Obama’s inaugural ceremonies. He was featured in the 2007 documentaries “For the Bible Tells Me So” and the 2012 Sundance entry “Love Free Or Die” and is the author of “God Believes in Love: Straight Talk About Gay Marriage”.

“God Believes In Love” is a groundbreaking book that lovingly and persuasively makes the case for same-sex marriage using a commonsense, reasoned, religious argument, made by someone who holds the religious text of the Bible to be holy and sacred and the ensuing two millennia of church history to be relevant to the discussion, equally familiar with the secular and political debate going on in America today, and for whom same-sex marriage is a personal issue; Robinson was married to a woman for two decades and is a father of two children and has been married to a man for the last four years of a twenty-three-year relationship.

Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with one of America’s great advocates for LGBT rights, Bishop Gene Robinson, right before his appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to talk about his unique journey documented in “God Believes In Love”, when he decided to live as an openly Gay man, the influence he hopes to have once he steps away from the Church this year, the controversies and obstacles he has faced in his unique position, and soo much more!  Bishop Robinson is one of the most courageous and progressive role models you can ever meet, and it will be wonderful to see the incredible work he continues to do moving forward!
