Responding today is Catholic League president Bill Donohue: “Gene Robinson is a walking embarrassment to Episcopalians everywhere, and is profoundly ignorant of what has been happening to his own church. Had he read David Shiflett’s splendid book, Exodus: Why Americans are Fleeing Liberal Churches for Conservative Christianity, he might have been able to connect the dots: it is because of people like him—a practicing homosexual—that his church is imploding. And prior to Shiflett’s work we had the ground-breaking volume by professor Thomas C. Reeves, The Empty Church: Does Organized Religion Matter Anymore. His book is also about what happens when the likes of Robinson assume power.
“Here’s to you, Mr. Robinson. Your proselytizing efforts are deeply appreciated by Roman Catholics.”
