Episcopal church in Rochester is closing

[Foster's Online] January 20, 2005--In June, a group of 36 parishioners decided they could not remain members of the church because Robinson refused to grant complete pastoral oversight to a more orthodox bishop. Robinson is the state’s ninth Episcopal bishop and is openly gay.

The church and Robinson had been at odds for the past year over Robinson’s service as an openly gay bishop, which they say is a sin he must repent and be saved from.
