Bishop Robinson: Conservatives Want to Be More LGBT-Friendly

Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson says that even evangelical Christians are starting to see younger church goers are less inclined to rally against marriage equality.
"My sense is that there's a real hunger, even amongst the real conservative denominations, to find a way forward on this," he said on The Daily Show Monday night.
Robinson, who is openly gay, was on the show to promote his new book, God Believes in Love: Straight Talk About Gay Marriage.
"Here’s a guy who, in a culture that virtually demanded marriage, was a single guy, spent most of his time with twelve men, singled out three of them for leadership and one of them is known in the Bible as 'the one whom Jesus loved,'" Robinson said. "Now I’m not saying Jesus was gay, but let’s be careful to rope this guy in for a husband, wife and 2.2 children model for family. He knew about families of choice and so do LGBT people."
