In a 62-45 vote, leaders of the Episcopal Church vote to confirm the Rev. Gene Robinson as bishop of New Hampshire. Robinson becomes the first openly gay elected bishop in the church's history. The decision to confirm Robinson could lead to a split in the denomination. Hear NPR's Barbara Bradley Hagerty.
