It suits their purpose of complaint to maintain that Robinson was the first 'openly gay bishop'. It is nonsense. There have been many openly gay bishops --Mervyn Stockwood and Errol one time of Llandaf for starters.

And there is married retired bishop in America, whose partner happens to be a man.

Time to get over it.

Clearly, of the two options (a) inviting speakers from one point of view and (b) inviting speakers from different points of view, everyone knows which is better, fairer, less biased, and more geared to attaining truth.

Otherwise the question will rightly arise: what have the one group got to hide, or to be afraid of, in addressing questions?

So far as I can see Anglican Mainstream has a great deal more postings daily than when it first began. The quality of these postings has not deteriorated. So in what does their 'decline' consist?

I think that article is missing a vital `in America' in the relevant place.
