Gene Robinson

I just read that Gene Robinson, Bishop of New Hampshire in the Episcopal Church, is going to say a prayer to kick off inauguration activities on the 18th. Bishop Robinson is the first openly gay and partnered bishop in the Anglican Communion, so this makes a very nice counter to the choice of Rick Warren for the prayer on the 20th. Read more about it here. I had the chance to meet Robinson back in October in Berkeley and he turned out to be very amazing and inspiring, so I’m glad Obama (‘s team) has made this particular choice.
