After weeks of bitter infighting among parishioners, Immanuel Presbyterian Church has accepted the resignation of Walker L. Railey, the church's executive administrator who was indicted last month in the attempted murder of his wife, a church spokesman said Wednesday. In a letter to the church's governing board, Railey cited intense media interest in his pending trial for the decision to quit the $63,000-post, which he had held since May, 1991.

Walker L. Railey, the once-prominent Dallas minister and Los Angeles church executive acquitted of trying to murder his wife after a sensational Texas trial last spring, has hit the lecture circuit. Railey was applauded Wednesday by a group of clergy members in Reseda after telling them that religious leaders are losing public respect because of scandals like the one that engulfed him after his wife was choked nearly to death in their Dallas garage in 1987.

It was a scene one bystander described as appallingly "un-Christian." Two members of Immanuel Presbyterian Church stood on the steps of the soaring Gothic Revival edifice shouting accusingly at each other. "Why not be part of the answer, instead of wasting your energy tearing things apart?" demanded Mitch Moore, who runs the Mid-Wilshire church's youth programs. "I am not attending this church anymore because I do not feel the Holy Spirit is working here!"

In these parts, when they talk about waiting for the verdict, they are not referring to the Rodney G. King case. The strange and celebrated attempted-murder trial of ex-minister Walker Railey has gone to the jury in San Antonio. Is he the cold, calculating pastor who tried to strangle his wife after she discovered his extramarital affair, as the prosecution charges, or is he a victim of coincidence?

It was no secret at Immanuel Presbyterian Church that Walker L. Railey had a past. If there was any doubt, it was dispelled one Sunday last fall when he delivered an emotional sermon to the Mid-Wilshire congregation. "I live each and every day with a cloud over my head, but also the assurance that God is on the other side of the cloud," Railey confided to a hushed audience of several hundred. "Therein lies my only hope."

Bewildered friends and followers would recall that he looked tired and depressed, still grief-stricken and mystified over the savage assault on his wife. Little more than a week had passed since he found her comatose on the garage floor, choked senseless and left for dead. She had not regained consciousness. Now, in the early evening hours of April 30, 1987, the intense, balding man excused himself and disappeared into a private hospital suite.
