Skip to comments.First Oenly Gay Bishop Files for Divorce (25 Years)
Posted on 05/04/2014 2:30:35 PM PDT by nickcarraway
Gene Robinson made headlines in 2003 as the first openly gay Anglican bishop. Eleven years later, the Episcopalian has announced that he is filing for divorce from his partner of 25 years.
In a post published by the Daily Beast, Robinson explained the situation.
Recently, my partner and husband of 25-plus years and I decided to get divorced. While the details of our situation will remain appropriately private, I am seeking to be as open and honest in the midst of this decision as I have been in other dramatic moments of my lifecoming out in 1986, falling in love, and accepting the challenge of becoming Christendoms first openly gay priest to be elected a Bishop in the historic succession of bishops stretching back to the apostles[...] It is at least a small comfort to me, as a gay rights and marriage equality advocate, to know that like any marriage, gay and lesbian couples are subject to the same complications and hardships that afflict marriages between heterosexual couples, he wrote. All of us sincerely intend, when we take our wedding vows, to live up to the ideal of til death do us part. But not all of us are able to see this through until death indeed parts us.
Robinson and Mark Andrew entered into a civil union in 2010 after New Hampshire legalized same-sex marriage.
And we’re interested in your perversion why??
Christendom has never claimed any part of sin. Christendom doesn't brag about sin as this guy is.
what if someone came out and said "I am Christendom's biggest adulterer." How would that fly?
You are a degenerate who played off publicity to get what you want. Now, perhaps, it's our turn.
His actions caused a major split within the Episcopal Church. So if he’s looking for sympathy, he won’t get mine.
Reap what you sew, baby.
Gene Robinson - adulter, fornicator, liar, now twice divorced... and a moral model of the Episcopal church.
Well, you made me laugh out loud on that one- Thanx!
Gene is a pathological liar and for that alone, he should have been defrocked - Naw, ECUSA promotes the cretin to Bishop:
“...gay and lesbian couples are subject to the same complications and hardships that afflict marriages between heterosexual couples...”
Not really, Gene - your complications and hardships will always be different from most heterosexual couples because your relationships are driven by perverted sex, first and foremost - the vast majority of you can’t live a monogamous life and that is why most of these relationships end. The rampant promiscuity leads to a host of STDs and “domestic abuse.” Sad, but true. The sooner people wise up to the lies you and your other Gay Analists spew, the better off all people will be, especially the homosexuals who want help.
He refers to his partner as his “husband”. I guess that means he’s the wife.

|Woo hoo!! And the first 39% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
It will be interesting to see how all of the legal issues & community property are settled. Ah, all of the complications that come with marriage and divorce that are solved by just shacking up. (semi-sarcasm)
Of the 2% of the public who are “gay”, how many ever get married? How many of those marriages last “until death us do part?” How many of them are open marriages with swinging sex partners in the mix?
The whole institution of marriage is being turned on its head over a couple thousand people who want something other than “a civil union”.
That's not what you said to *me*,sweetie,when our eyes first met at the bath house.
I’d say the Episcopal church is long overdue to just close it’s doors.Surely there can’t be a single true believer left there.
If evil priests can be defrocked,
can evil judges be disrobed?
Whatever,,, I just DON’T want to be nearby to SEE it!
(WHAT HAS BEEN SEEN CAN NOT BE UNSEEN!)
ewww - just had a picture in my mind of Sotomayer - Kagan - Ginsburg. Stop me before it imprints.....
“Recently, my partner and husband...”
So, Gene Robinson was the wife. But if he’s a man, how can he be a wife?
Perhaps it would be interesting to know why they are getting divorced. Irreconcilable differences?
Mr. Robinson here is showing a great amount of modesty. The priests of Baal have their beginnings thousands of years before the start of Christendom.
Throwing in the towel, or snapping the towel, or whatever, after only four years of their much-campaigned-for legal marriage? Now he's comparing himself to straights who get divorced.... whatta guy. Whatta gal. Whatever.
you started it )
I am so BAD sometimes!
Having been recently transferred from Australia,the "bishop" is now free to cruise the bath houses of Boston without any sense of guilt.
Gack! Where to start is right.
