First openly gay Episcopal bishop to be honored
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church is being honored by the Gay and Lesbian Alumni/ae of the University of Notre Dame and Saint Mary's College.
The South Bend Tribune reports the former New Hampshire Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson is scheduled to receive the organization's 2013 Thomas A. Dooley Award at a dinner on April 6 at the Gillespie Conference Center in South Bend. The award honors individuals who, through a faith-based background, have demonstrated personal courage, compassion and commitment to advance the human and civil rights of lesbian and gay Americans.
Robinson's election in 2003 created an international uproar and led conservative Episcopalians to break away from the main church in the United States. He retired earlier this year.
