"I know the church is responsible for most of the pain in the lives of gay and lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. We just have to admit that. And at some point we will repent of it the way we repented of our support for slavery using the Bible. I think there are a lot of us of us in this room who will repent of what we have done to a whole group of people in God's name. I think it must break God's heart."

--Bishop V. Gene Robinson in a lecture at Vanderbilt University
