Bishop Gene Robinson, the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop in New Hampshire, told the Advocate’s Andrew Harmon that “it may not be helpful for Obama to endorse marriage equality prior to November.” “I have to say I’m sympathetic to the notion that for him to openly support marriage equality before the election would complicate an already difficult task,” he says. “I would say to him that we can’t underestimate how important this is to us — this is the systemic change that we need, want, and deserve. And I would push him hard to go all the way to marriage equality in his second administration.”
