At the close of the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast on Monday, President Barack Obama unexpectedly turned the floor over to Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Episcopal bishop.
Robinson tweeted about the impromptu prayer.
POTUS “preaches” at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG! #privilege pic.twitter.com/P1wzYCQNMf

Robinson retired as bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in early 2013. He is now a senior fellow at the liberal think tank the Center for American Progress.
