Retired Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson appeared on The Colbert Report last night to talk about how religion has become more accepting of LGBT people. Robinson explained, “We’re asking: Did the Church — did the Synagogue — get it wrong about gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people? I think the answer is yes.” He helped Stephen Colbert understand that, just like being left-handed, being gay is not a choice. Robinson also pointed out that the fact that most people now know someone who is gay is what has helped LGBT rights advance so quickly — his own journey within the Episcopal Church serving as the perfect example.
