Bishop Gene Robinson comes to Exeter
From the Bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in the Episcopal Church, the first openly gay person elected to the historic episcopate writes a groundbreaking book that lovingly and persuasively makes the case for same-sex marriage using a reasoned argument.
From the Bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in the Episcopal Church, the first openly gay person elected (in 2003) to the historic episcopate and the world's leading religious spokesperson for gay rights and gay marriage--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.
This event is in partnership with We the People, a lecture and film series sponsored by the Congregational, Episcopal, and UU churches of Exeter, Water Street Bookstore, and Phillips Exeter Academy.
