This isn't liberal or anything, but I got a chuckle out of it.

I was watching Larry King Live the other night. It's not a show I normally watch, but King had on a panel of ministers debating homosexuality and the church. I am Episcopalian, and my church is currently debating about whether or not to have gay bishops. One, the Rt. Rev. Gene Robinson of the Diocese of New Hampshire (yes, he's my Bishop when I'm at Dartmouth), was elected and consecrated in 2003. That set off a shitstorm of epic proportions in the worldwide Anglican Communion, as well as here at home.

I was watching King because Robinson, Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold, and others were discussing the controversy. It was actually a very civil panel, something you don't see on CNN every day. Or every month, for that matter. And I think I'll write about homosexuality and the church, but in a later blog. I just want to tell you today something I found funny. The show came back from a commercial break, and the camera shook violently. It dipped down and to the right, and you could hear a muffled, "Oh shit!" from the cameraman. Right there on CNN. During a church debate. Two thumbs up for professionalism! :-D

Normally, I wouldn't waste your time with this, but I just googled "Larry King" "Gene Robinson" "oh shit" and found nothing. I felt this should wind up in the blogosphere SOMEWHERE.
