Robinson film at Sundance

Gene Robinson's heart still races when he sees it on film. The Episcopal Church's first openly gay bishop was preaching in London when a man stood and yelled at him.

The heckler waved a motorcycle helmet, making Robinson worry if the man was armed. The man was escorted out, but the moment reminded everyone of the risks of taking a stand.

It's one of many moments captured in Love Free or Die, a documentary about Robinson that recently premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
