Gay US bishop: I will not resign

The gay bishop at the heart of the Anglican Communion crisis has told the BBC he regrets the pain caused by his consecration but he will not resign.
Gene Robinson was responding to a report which called on the American Church to apologise for consecrating him last November as a bishop.
A senior Nigerian Anglican leader has condemned the report as unbalanced.
Archbishop Peter Akinola accused liberals of being "hell bent" on destroying the Anglican communion.
Gene Robinson welcomed what he called a "remarkable report" and he said he and his diocese accepted its call for an expression of regret.
