GAY EPISCOPALIAN BISHOP ROBINSON KNEELS AS HE IS CONSECRATED AS BISHOP.
Reverend Gene Robinson (bottom front) kneels in front of Chief
Consecrator and Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, the Most Rev.
Frank Griswold (top), as Griswold officially consecrates Robinson as
the first openly gay bishop of the Episcopal Church, during ceremonies
in Durham, New Hampshire, November 2, 2003. Some fear that Robinson's
consecration will cause a split in the worldwide Anglican Church.
