Bishop Robinson is at the forefront of the ongoing schism within the global Anglican Communion.

LOS ANGELES (Catholic Online) - In an interview with Matt Lauer of NBC, practicing Homosexual controversialist Bishop Gene Robinson announced plans to enter into a ‘Civil Union’ with his Male Paramour.

He told the interviewer it was “what God is telling me to do”

Just as the splintering Anglican Communion was preparing for its International Lambeth Conference. Just as the controversy surrounding the actions of some orthodox Anglicans planning an alternative Conference seemed to be out of the limelight. Right at this time,a controversialist Bishop named Gene Robinson once again enters the limelight to make himself the center of attention.

Using National Network television in the United States as his platform, he announced his plans. They confirmed a promise he had made in November of 2007 at Nova Southeastern University’s Shephard Law Center.

There, in an appearance written about by Catholic Online, he proudly told the audience of his upcoming planned ‘marriage’ to his paramour.

With a broad smile he announced with pride, "I always wanted to be a June bride."

This Bishop is on the forefront of the ongoing schism within the global Anglican Communion.

He is also a leader in a cultural revolution being led by activist, practicing homosexuals who not only want to live their lifestyle but force the State and the Church to give them equal status to marriage.

Painting himself as some new kind of “martyr”, the Bishop told Matt Lauer that he will enter into a “Civil Union” with his male partner of twenty years, Mark Andrew. He presented those within Christianity who oppose his active homosexual relationship as somehow unenlightened.

Finally, as is his habit, he attempted to argue against the clear teaching of the Scriptures and unbroken teaching of the Christian tradition that reserve sexual activity to the loving, lifelong marriage bond between a married man and woman.

Presenting himself as some kind of new liberator, the controversialist Bishop, whose consecration to Episcopal office in 2003 expedited the continuing splintering of the Anglican Communion worldwide, seemed to take great delight in his celebrity status during the interview.

Robinson has been asked to not attend the conference because of the controversy surrounding his lifestyle and his vocal dissent from Christian teaching and tradition.

However, the Bishop announced in this same interview that he will attend anyway, saying with defiance: “I think the Archbishop of Canterbury has gotten this wrong by not inviting everyone. I’m going to go and offer myself and talk with anyone who wants to talk to someone who is unashamedly gay and unashamedly Christian.”

How will this new controversy be handled by the leadership of the global Anglican communion?

Only time will tell. So far, nothing has seemed to stop the splintering or slow the erosion of orthodoxy.
