This edition of OutCasting features an interview with Gene Robinson, whose consecration as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop was followed by a split in the Episcopal Church over the issue of homosexuality.  Bishop Robinson, a leading international voice for gay rights, talks with OutCaster David about how he was elected, the positive aftermath of his consecration, the death threats he received, the split in the church, marriage equality, and his new book, God Believes in Love: Straight Talk About Gay Marriage.

If you're interested in buying this book, please consider buying it from an LGBT bookstore.  These valuable community institutions are disappearing in an age of internet shopping, and a great deal is being lost.  Here's a list.
