High Profile Gay Bish, Gene Robinson has had to "come out" once more over revelations that he is an Alcoholic, according to beliefnet.com:
New Hampshire Bishop V. Gene Robinson, the first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church, is undergoing treatment for his "increasing dependence on alcohol," Robinson said in a letter to the 49 churches in his diocese. Robinson, 58, voluntarily checked himself into an undisclosed facility on Feb. 1 for a four-week stay. Robinson said in the letter, dated Monday (Feb. 13), that he had the support of his partner, Mark Andrew, and his two daughters. "Over the 28 days I will be here, I will be dealing with the disease of alcoholism -- which, for years, I have thought of as a failure of will or discipline on my part, rather than a disease over which my particular body simply has no control, except to stop drinking altogether," Robinson wrote.I believe that, when fully recovered from this debilitating malady, Gene will find that he has relevant transferable skills and will get a great job as Chaplain to The Liberal Democrats.
I shall reserve making further cheap jibes about the Bishop unless he is discovered to have a James Blunt CD in his collection, in which case, he will be fair game.
