On this week’s special program, we celebrate three bishops who made groundbreaking opening moves in Christianity’s inclusion gambit:

A 2001 conversation with Episcopal ally firebrand the Right Reverend John Shelby Spong, a leader in the struggle for LGBTQ ordination and marriage equality (interviewed by Brisbane, Australia correspondent John Frame).

A tribute to Unity Fellowship founder Archbishop Carl Bean, the gay pop star (“I Was Born This Way”) who turned musical success into a ministry to the African American queer community,

Reverend Megan Rohrer, the first transgender Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America — and maybe in the world — talks about their journey to the historic milestone (interviewed by Eric Jansen of “Out in the Bay – Queer Radio from San Francisco”).

NewsWrap returns next week.

All this on the November 29, 2021 edition of This Way Out!
