The leader of a breakaway Episcopal parish defended himself against allegations of financial misconduct Saturday -- as a theological think tank that he oversees said it was distancing itself from him.

The Anglican Communion Institute says it's distancing itself from Grace Church and St. Stephen's Parish in Colorado Springs, so that questions involving the Reverend Donald Armstrong can be resolved "without interference."

The Episcopal Diocese of Colorado moved in December to suspend Armstrong over allegations of financial misconduct.

Armstrong denies wrongdoing.

Armstrong returned after the church vestry voted last month to leave the Episcopal Church over theological differences.

Congregants are to vote on the decision May 20th.
