"Openly-Gay Bishop Gene Robinson Condemns Perry’s ‘War On Religion’ Ad"

Bishop Gene Robinson, the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop in New Hampshire, is speaking out against Rick Perry’s infamous “war on religion” ad in an op-ed in the Washington Post. “Christians everywhere should be alarmed that a candidate for our nation’s highest office would play fast and loose with both the Constitution and our men and women in uniform,” he writes. “It would be simply pathetic that Gov. Perry would do so in an effort to entice conservative voters, if it weren’t such an abuse of religion and a violation of the Constitution.”
