NEPTUNE TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- A New Jersey pastor who said Facebook was a "portal to infidelity" and told married church leaders to delete their accounts or resign once testified that he had a three-way sexual relationship with his wife and a male church assistant.

In Saturday editions of the Asbury Park Press, the Rev. Cedric Miller confirmed the testimony he gave in 2003 in a criminal case against the assistant. The relationship had ended by that time, and the case eventually was dismissed.

Miller gained national attention this week when he issued the Facebook edict. He said it came about because much of the marital counseling he has performed over the past year and a half has concerned infidelity stemming from the social network site.

The 48-year-old leader of Living Word Christian Fellowship Church in Neptune Township claimed Facebook ignites old passions.
