Transcript for Atlanta Archbishop Puts $2.2 Million Mansion Up for Sale
fire storm we reported on earlier this week. The catholic arch bishop and his new home. Get ready for a million dollar listing. The church is listening to so many upset. Here again, Steve osunsami. Reporter: Arch bishop Gregory buckled to pressure today saying that he will not only move out of this newly built mansion, he'll sell it too. He made the decision this afternoon after a closed door meeting with council. Of local clergy and commissioners. He's been leaning this way for days. Apologizing all week long. I'm disappointed in myself and don't intend to do that mistake again. Namely not take the opportunity of hearing my people -- He just started unpacking his boxes three months ago angering parishioners who felt he should be following the lead of pope Francis who drives an economy car. And celebrates the poor. The church built Gregory this 6,000 square foot home cost $2.2 million, has an elevator two dining broom -- rooms and shares a zip code with CEOs and athletes. Came from the gone with the wind name. Who instructed the church to use his donation for charitable work. My concern is to make sure that this issue doesn't have any lasting effect. He moves out in may and says money from the sale will go back to the catholic community. Steve osunsami, ABC news, Atlanta.
