Bishop Gene Robinson To ‘Marry’ Gay Partner

Bishop Gene Robinson

Telegraph: Bishop Gene Robinson, the first openly homosexual Anglican bishop, is about to “marry” his partner, further inflaming tensions in the church ahead of a series of critical meetings this summer.

The bishop, whose appointment has driven the worldwide church to the brink of collapse, is to have a civil union with his partner of 20 years, Mark Andrew.

They will have a private ceremony carried out by a lawyer in front of family and friends on Saturday, followed by a service of celebration in a church nearby in New Hampshire, northeast USA.

Bishop Robinson, who recently claimed he had always wanted to be a “June bride”, said: “We’re very excited about it. It won’t look like a wedding, but it will be wonderful.”
