Gay NH bishop says new Archbishop of Canterbury has modern outlook

The Rt. Rev. Gene Robinson, the former New Hampshire bishop whose appointment in 2003 ignited controversy throughout the global church because he is openly gay and not celibate, said via a representative that he has met Welby only once at a conference and it is too early to tell how Welby will act on sexuality-related issues. But Robinson added that Welby's appointment is a sign of the church thinking outside the box and said he found Welby to be a man of the "21st century."
