Gene go away!
In an email statement sent to Stand Firm, Fort Worth Bishop Jack Iker describes what honesty and integrity should compel certain bishops to do:
"Those Bishops who stand in solidarity with Gene Robinson should withdraw themselves from further participation in the Lambeth Conference. Having failed in several attempts to include Gene in the Conference, his supporters should themselves feel a sense of rejection from the Conference itself.
"Integrity and honesty would dictate that they should stand with Gene - excluded from full participation in the Lambeth Conference. Is this all talk, or is it backed up by action?" --Greg Griffith
