For all the bitching that’s done around here about liberal Christians who don’t take a vocal stand against the wingnuts, there is one man who most definitely is, and who embodies everything I admire about liberal Christians: Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson, whose name may be familiar because he is the first openly gay person to serve in that role.

Pam has an incredible post at the Blend and Big Brass Blog about Bishop Robinson, which she insightfully introduces thusly:
Considering the controversy that Robinson has been embroiled in since his election, you'd think he'd play it safe. On the contrary, he speaks out strongly for progressive views at a time where most religious leaders on the left are silent.
Pam excerpts an interview Bishop Robinson gave to Planned Parenthood, and then follows it up, in her inimitable way, with a slew of Freeper quotes that will, as always, simultaneously turn your stomach and increase your blood pressure.

Bishop Robinson’s fighting the good fight. Check it out.
