Facebook infidelity pastor had four-way sexual relationship

A US 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 four-way sexual relationship with his wife, a male church assistant and the assistant's wife.

The Reverend Cedric Miller (48) from New Jersey confirmed the reports, which cited testimony he gave in a criminal case in 2003. The relationship had ended by that time.

"We had crossed the line many times...between the four of us. It was crazy, it was as wrong as wrong could get," the pastor testified at the time.

Miller gained national attention when he issued the Facebook edict this week. He said it came about because much of the marital counselling he has performed recently has concerned infidelity stemming from the social-networking website.

Miller told the court that the meetings between the couples often took place after Thursday Bible study sessions and after church services on Sundays.

Miller said in a statement: "This was resolved at that time and accordingly we will not allow it to detract from our mission at hand to save as many marriages as we can."

He said that his church leaders and other pastors were notified of the affair years ago.
