    As a a life-long gay Episcopalian I think that the comments of Winnie Varghese need to be put into context. Yes, there are issues, but we have come so far in the 40 years that I have been in the trenches on this. The US Episcopal Church functions within the larger society where sadly yes, LGBT rights are ghettoized, but it has been a leader in pushing our right forward and out into the open. Of course we still have members who lack acceptance of LGBT people; we are not a single focus denomination like the MCC. Sad that you choose to focus on one sound bite to address what has been happening. It would be helpful if you would publish the full texts of the talks that were given and not the snippets that we have given.

      Dear Eric,

      Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, I lacked both time and talent to publish full transcripts. I’ll at least try to track down links to videos of the panels and speeches.

      I’ve added these to the article:

      • A link to the video of the morning of Day 1 of the conference, with a note about where to find Winnie Varghese’s full remarks.
      • A link to the full schedule of speakers at the conference.
      • Links to the videos of the afternoon of Day 1 and all of Day 2 of the conference.
