Bishop Gene Robinson: Straight Talk about Gay Marriage

Nearly ten years ago Vicky Gene Robinson made international news by being the first openly gay person elected Bishop of an Episcopal Diocese. The action divided the church and Robinson made more headlines for being gay, than being Bishop.  Now as he prepares to step down after nearly a decade of service, he's out with a new book.  In God Believes in Love , Robinson tries to answer ten questions "frequently asked by those trying to understand if gay marriage is truly a just and righteous path for our states, our country and our world.  Today Bishop Gene Robinson joins us to talk about his book and his case for gay marriage.
