No Frozen Chosen

Best quote I've heard yet about the Rt. Rev. Gene Robinson, Episcopal bishop of New Hampshire and the first openly gay man to hold such a position in TEC:

I admire Gene Robinson greatly. He exudes his faith, not with the arrogance of the Professional Bishops, but with the serenity and confidence of a child. No frozen-chosen upper class episcopalian would have been nearly as effective as the First Honest Gay Bishop as a sharecropper's son with the cadence of Kentucky in his voice. --- commenter "IT" over at Fr. Jake's

(and the fact that Fr. Jake's "resident atheist" can see this, while so-called faithful Christians still spew the most incredibly foul things about Bp. Robinson, should give any Episcopalian pause)
