+VGR is Advisor to Obama on Gay Issues
Bishop Robinson said he was surprised at another controversy that arose last year when he endorsed Senator Barack Obama before the New Hampshire primary. Some voters in the state said religious leaders should stay out of politics. Bishop Robinson said he had talked three times with Mr. Obama, of Illinois, and advised him on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues.
The Right Reverend gentleman has consistently claimed that he does not desire the spotlight (witness his recent reaffirmation,"I would love just to be a simple country bishop"), he does seem to have a habit of dabbling in weighty matters on the national and international scene, doesn't he?!
