(AgapePress) - Homosexual Episcopal bishop Vicki Gene Robinson was the keynote speaker at an "interfaith prayer breakfast" on Friday morning sponsored by the nation's largest abortion provider. The New Hampshire bishop used the opportunity to praise Planned Parenthood for its efforts -- and to go on the attack against America.
The prayer breakfast is part of Planned Parenthood's annual conference, which is being held in Washington, DC. Robinson, the Episcopal Church's first openly homosexual bishop, told the organization's staff and supporters they have reason to be proud of what they do.
"Long before the 'religious right' was objecting to abortions, Planned Parenthood was objecting to the violence against women when butchers were performing all the abortions here in America," Robinson said. "Yours is amazing history -- and I hope you are as proud as you should be."
He also stated that America treats everyone wrong -- except straight white men. "I am so grateful for this experience of being gay. It has taught me so much," the bishop said. "It's my little window into what it must be like to be a woman, to be a person in a wheelchair, to be a person of color."
Robinson said that is why homosexuals and abortion advocates must unite and fight to bring about what he calls a "holy change" in the nation. The two movements, he said, will always be linked together as they battle to bring about that change.
Prior to the breakfast, Planned Parenthood chaplain Dr. Ignacio Castuera had described Robinson as an "inspiring religious leader and a compelling moral and ethical force in the struggle for reproductive rights, human rights, and sexual equality." Robinson's work in the areas of mentoring and "healthy sexuality," he added, has "shaped generations of believers who share his progressive spiritual values."
