"We need to be in this for the long haul...Just because we achieved civil rights in the sixties for African Americans, it doesn't mean racism is gone. Because we achieved rights for women in the seventies, it doesn't mean sexism is gone.... But we can stay in this fight because we know how it's is going to end. This is going to end with full equality for LGBT people in our churches and in society. I have no doubt of it."

--Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson, speaking at the 20th Annual GLAAD Media Awards
