A New Jersey church pastor who said Facebook can lead to adultery is temporarily stepping down after admitting that he had engaged in a three-way sexual relationship several years ago.

The Rev. Cedric Miller last week urged congregants at his Living Word Christian Fellowship Church in Neptune, N.J., to drop their Facebook accounts because some were having affairs facilitated by the social networking site.

Miller told The Associated Press on Wednesday he will resume his pastorate "eventually," but will be "taking some time off" following a church vote Tuesday night.

He says church members gave him a vote of confidence, subject to some restrictions he wouldn't list.

The church had no immediate comment.
