The Resignation of Pastor Marty Braemer (UPDATED)

The rumors floating about (undenied) from several sources (though only through one web site) that Pastor Marty Braemer has resigned from Fords Bush Bible Church (need updated link) (Fort Plain, NY) are confirmed, by Marty himself.
Marty Braemer was one of the many people who rather sternly took me to task in "not so nice" debate form at the Fighting Fundamentalist Forum, a forum that not surprisingly I do frequent any longer.

Marty has/had a blog that he last posted at quite some time ago. I posted there asking him to confirm the rumor. I called his church (disconnected) and emailed him as well to discover the reason for the resignation. He now says he'll tell us this coming Sunday. Oh well, it's not like he's Sarah Palin.

Other bloggers are now noticing that Marty has resigned. None of us as of yet know why. As for why I am interested, I'll tell you if the rumored reason is true. Conservative Babylon has chimed in, in detail, and has been restrained in it's analysis. The author mentions the search terms that are generating hits on the blog.

I used to go to church with Marty. I live near Ford's Bush, but this is the first I've heard of it, but I am interested in why.

I clicked on your blog for another reason, however. I am the Albany CPS and Family Court examiner for examiner.com. I wrote an article in which I mentioned the FLDS and have been attacked for it. I thought you or your readers might be able to respond beter than I could. Here is the link.
