Pastor Dies After Confessing Infidelity To Congregation
A Connecticut pastor has died after confessing to his congregation he cheated on his wife.

The Daily Mail points out Davis had asked people at service Sunday to stay afterward for him to make an important confession that he had already made to his wife of 50 years.

Police in Bridgeport, Conn. say Davis collapsed suddenly when members of the congregation questioned him about his admitted infidelity. (Via WTNH)

But according to the Connecticut Post, churchgoers were actually expressing their forgiveness when Davis unexpectedly passed away.

A church elder told the paper: "We were shouting, 'We forgive you, we love you,' but the stress of all of it - he had a heart attack." Davis' official cause of death, though, has not been determined.

Fox News adds police are reviewing video that a church member recorded while attending service. Police have also interviewed several witnesses.

Davis had been a pastor at the church he and his wife founded since 1967. He leaves behind six children and eight grandchildren.
