The executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention says the president of a Baptist-affiliated agency for abused children has resigned.
Convention Executive Director Paul Chitwood told The Courier-Journal he isn't sure if Smithwick, who is on administrative leave, will stay with the organization or has officially left. Smithwick couldn't be reached for comment.
The KBC board named Dale Suttles interim chief executive.
Chitwood praised Smithwick's service and said his resignation stemmed from the differences over homosexuality.
