Gay marriage: Anglican vicar resigns over 'homophobia'

Help

A vicar in Wales has resigned over the issue of gay marriage, claiming some members of the Anglican communion - including elements of the Church in Wales - have become more homophobic.

The Reverend Andrew Morton, the vicar of Llangybi in Monmouthshire, is the first clergyman in Wales to step down over the matter.

He says he would have been willing to carry out ceremonies for gay couples in his parish.

The Church in Wales said it a "matter of regret" for clergy to resign over an issue yet to be resolved by the church.
