Episcopal Bishop Champions Gay Marriage: Publishers Weekly Talks with Gene Robinson

Christians who oppose gay marriage are sometimes described as “haters.” Is that characterization fair?

No. I’m concerned about the escalating violent language and overstatement. We can’t have a civil discussion about much of anything. I do not believe that everyone who opposes gay marriage hates gay people. There are many principled faithful people who oppose it based on what they have been taught to believe and do believe. We do not move forward by asserting that the other side is hating us.

Read it all.
