Recently retired Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson was interviewed on NPR’s “Fresh Air,” by Terry Gross this evening. I had not heard Mr. Robinson’s voice before this evening. His voice was soothing and sincere.The interview is one of the most profoundly loving discussions of equal rights I have been privileged to hear and read.
Gene Robinson’s ability to articulate the recent and current progress for Gay people is clear, compassionate and remarkable in the simplicity of his message. He makes so much sense and while his words and work resonates here at BMG…..I just think if more people who may still be in the dark regarding LGBT equality, could hear him speak, they would surely experience positive change and acceptance.
Maybe, just maybe, if the interview were shared widely with those not inclined to tune into “Fresh Air,” we might see more progress. We have come a long way in ten years, but there is still work to be done.
