Albany Episcopal cathedral's dean resigns amid gay marriage controversy

From Albany-

Dean David Collum resigned his position at the Episcopal Cathredal of All Saints amid a heated controversy over Bishop William Love's opposition to same-sex marriage, which caused numerous parishioners to quit.

In a letter to members, Collum, priest to the cathedral congregation for the past five years, said he made the decision "with a heavy heart," but denied the decision was influenced by the gay marriage inbroglio.

"Given the controversies surrounding the larger church, some may conclude my action is a reaction to the challenging situation," Collum wrote in a letter mailed Wednesday. "I would assure you that it is not."
