Go back in time. It's July 9, 2012 and Bishop Vicky Gene Robinson (IX New Hampshire) has the floor of the Episcopal House of Bishops. He is taking a Point of Personal Privilege to respond to a Virtue Online e-mail inquiry about rumors floating around General Convention that he and his "husband" Mark Andrew were hitting a rough spot in their same-sex marriage.

"...Also last night I received an e-mail from a person who calls himself a correspondent for VirtueOnline, wanting me to comment on whether or not my beloved Mark and I are having relationship problems, and whether or not we are discussing or planning a divorce. I have no intention of responding to that e-mail. It is nobody’s damn business," he ranted.

"I just need to say to this house that for nine years I have borne a level of scrutiny the likes of which I believe most of you can only imagine, and there is a limit to what one person can bear," the New Hampshire bishop whined "I have only three and a half more days as an active bishop in this house and less than six months as an active bishop of this church. Can you cut me a little slack, please? “Can you find it in your heart, if you’ve got a question about something that I’ve said or done, to ask me personally? I will answer you truthfully."
