Leading British Cardinal Resigns as Archbishop

Cardinal Keith O'Brien, Britain's most senior Roman Catholic cleric, resigned as leader of the Scottish Catholic church, saying he won't attend the coming conclave of cardinals to elect a successor to Pope Benedict.

Scottish Cardinal Keith O'Brien resigned as Archbishop of St. Andrews and Edinburgh on Monday, saying he won't attend the coming conclave of cardinals to elect a successor to Pope Benedict XVI.

In a statement, Cardinal O'Brien said his resignation, tendered on Feb. 18, had been accepted by the pope.

The resignation comes close on the heels of a report in The Observer newspaper in the U.K. on Sunday, which detailed allegations of inappropriate behavior against Cardinal O'Brien that date back to the 1980s.

Last year, U.K. gay rights group Stonewall gave Cardinal O'Brien its "Bigot of the Year" award.
