Love Free or Die

On Saturday, November 17, St. Mark’s will offer a special screening of the film Love Free or Die at 1:00 pm.  This movie [see trailer here] is a documentary film about the life and ministry of Bishop Gene Robinson of the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire, the first openly gay person to become a bishop in the historic traditions of Christendom. His consecration in 2003, to which he wore a bullet-proof vest, caused an international stir, and he has lived with death threats every day since.

Love Free or Die follows Robinson from small-town churches in the New Hampshire North Country to Washington’s Lincoln Memorial to London’s Lambeth Palace, as he calls for all to stand for equality – inspiring bishops, priests and ordinary folk to come out from the shadows and change history. There will be a light lunch served.
