Atlanta’s Episcopalians have a new bishop.  Robert Wright is the first African-American bishop in the history of the Atlanta diocese.  In Part 2 of a conversation with WABE’s Denis O’Hayer, Bishop Wright said Episcopalians in Atlanta need to move beyond the long-running battles over things like sexuality, and start addressing the wider community about more fundamental things.  He also talked about issues expected to surface in the 2013 session of the Georgia Legislature, including a possible state constitutional amendment, declaring a fetus is a human person from the moment of conception.
