Bishop Gene Robinson – “Bible taken hostage”

The Bishop Coadjutor of New Hampshire, the Rt Revd Gene Robinson, whose consecration sparked the present crisis in Anglican unity, told a forum in Manhattan, New York: “How self-absorbed can we be, to be fighting over this when people are dying everywhere.” Bishop Robinson referred to conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, genocide in Sudan, and the global spread of AIDS. “We have allowed the conservative religious Right to take our Bible hostage, and I think it’s time we took it back.”
