BBC interviews Robinson

The Today radio programme broadcast an interview with Canon Gene Robinson this morning. You can hear the full interview here (Real Audio required).

Other reports this morning:

Ruth Gledhill in The Times says that Church draws up secret plans for Anglican ‘Pope’ and in another story with Richard Owen (in Rome) Pope renews his hard line on sex.

The Press Association reminds us that this weekend the LGCM conference will be addressed by Michael Ingham, Bishop of New Westminster and others, including Gene Robinson by a satellite video link, American Bishop to Address Gay Christians which is a slightly confusing headline (OK Canada is in North America, but Robinson is not a bishop yet). The BBC also has a story on this, Gay bishop-elect makes address.

The New York Times has published With Conservative Episcopalians Making Plans to Separate, Gay Bishop-Elect Stands Firm.

The Spectator this week has an opinion article by Andrew Gimson The Church hesitant.

Meanwhile in Sweden, Reuters reports that Swedish church takes step towards gay marriages.
