Don't ask, don't broadcast

Gay Bishop Gene Robinson Left Out Of HBO Concert Coverage
Jason Linkins,

Sunday's big Lincoln Memorial show was billed as the "We Are One" concert, intended to celebrate the inauguration of Barack Obama with a spirit of unity. But for those of us watching at home, one participant was excluded -- Gene Robinson, the "first openly gay, non-celibate priest to be ordained a bishop in a major Christian denomination." Robinson was on hand to deliver an opening prayer to the event, but this prayer went unseen by anyone watching on HBO, who provided and sponsored the coverage. [HuffPo: More...]

And so it's with mixed emotions that a I truly look forward to tomorrow.
