Bishop Gene Robinson: "Race is still the Festering Sore in American Society"

TIP had the great pleasure of interviewing Retired Bishop Gene Robinson last weekend when he was in Billings, MT to speak at a screening of the excellent film about him, "Love Free or Die." The event was sponsored by Fair is Fair in Montana. This clip delves into how racism and white privilege still thrive just below the sanitized surface of American society.

Retired Bishop Gene Robinson was the first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church. He now works as a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, a progressive research and policy organization, on issues of faith and gay rights.

Here is an excellent interview, "Retired Bishop Gene Robinson On Being Gay And Loving God," on the NPR program Fresh Air.
