Gene Robinson Travels to Sympathetic Territory

The controversial bishop is taking his message to Nova Southeastern University law school:

While some Episcopal dioceses are discussing breaking away from the church, the controversial bishop is traveling around the world to spread a peaceful and inclusive message.

His next stop — South Florida, where a number of Episcopal leaders have shown their support of Bishop Gene Robinson.

There’s no doubt that the Diocese of Southeast Florida is sympathetic to his idea.  But South Florida, with its lack of community, is not so much inclusive as balkanised.  The central problem with the whole diversity agenda is that it in fact tends to balkanise society rather than unite it.  Community erodes as members of a less and less homogeneous society see themselves as members of their own group first and a part of society second.

South Florida–where "the animals are tame and the people run wild"–has simply been ahead of its time.
