Director Macky Alston and Bishop Gene Robinson pose for a portrait during the 2012 Sundance Film Festival at the Getty Images Portrait Studio at T-Mobile Village at the Lift on January 24, 2012 in Park City, Utah.

On June 7, ten years ago, the Episcopalian church elected the openly gay Gene Robinson as Bishop.  This extraordinary step came at a time when support for homosexuality remained controversial in most major U.S. religions. 

The recent documentary, "Love Free or Die" tells the story of his life. The KPCC Crawford Family Forum is hosting a free screening of the movie at the Crawford Family Forum tonight at 7 p.m.

But where are homosexuality and religion are today, a decade later? Diane Winston, Knight Chair in media and religion at USC's Annenberg school for communication and journalism, joins the show with more.
