Gay Episcopal Bishop Endorses Obama

In a letter published on “LGBT for Obama,” a website that states it serves as the “lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community's online campaign to educate voters on John McCain's anti-gay policies,” Bishop Gene Robinson called on all LGBT voters to “put our differences and disappointments aside, and get behind the one candidate who has our interests at heart.”

On Sept 4 Bishop Robinson wrote that LGBT voters were “faced with the most stark choice in recent memory, with ramifications for our community like no other. If nothing else convinces you to vote for Barack Obama, surely the likelihood of the next president appointing one, two, or possibly even three Supreme Court justices should do it.”
