(WEST LAFAYETTE) - The first openly gay bishop of the Episcopal Church told a Purdue University audience he believes God is leading people to a deeper understanding of homosexuality.

Retired New Hampshire Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson spoke Sunday at the opening of a two-day diversity event at the West Lafayette campus.

Robinson said that families with gay youth are often thrown into confusion with the conflict between love for the children and long-held beliefs of terrible things about homosexual people, the Journal & Courier reported.

Robinson's consecration as a bishop in 2003 created an international uproar in the Anglican church and led conservative Episcopalians to break away from the main church in the U.S. He stepped down in January.
