PORTLAND, Maine (AP)—The first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church is coming to Maine for a second time on behalf of the campaign seeking to legalize same-sex marriage.
Bishop Gene Robinson of the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire will be discussing gay marriage at the Cathedral of St. Luke in Portland. Beforehand, he’ll be signing copies of his new book, God Believes in Love: Straight Talk on Marriage.
The event is sponsored by the Religious Coalition Against Discrimination and Integrity Maine, two groups that support the Nov. 6 ballot question asking if gay marriage should be legal.
Robinson married his longtime male partner three years ago the day gay marriage became legal in New Hampshire.
