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.
