The Bulgarian Orthodox Bishop of Varna and Veliki Preslav has resigned. The move comes the day after Bishop Kiril was seen driving a Lincoln MKZ Hybrid car. In a statement, the bishop claimed other reasons for his departure.

From the article:
Kiril quit his job late Wednesday, citing "dissatisfaction with the management of the Holy Synod of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church" as the reasons for his resignation.

However, many in Bulgaria have been quick to suggest that Varna Bishop Kiril – who is known to have harbored hopes to become Bulgaria's next Patriarch after the current head of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Maxim – has caused a scandal with his luxury limo, which might be the real reason for his resignation.
