This is a true shame of a human being. Being impaired at 5PM and being the pastor of a large church and a school board member. I heard that Hardy and Bowlings had to drive him home before for being drunk. "Oh what a tangled web we weave".

Those of you that have no imperfections feel free to judge. Wright is a fine person, with a few imperfections. His struggle is within him. He has dealt with it and slipped. He may slip again. He will defeat his problem. He IS a man of God, and God, not man, understands we fail sometimes. Bowling and Hardy are men who will help anyone that is in need. I don't always agree with them, but they are men that have imperfections also. We can only keep trying to do our best, not try to be perfect, because we're not.
If you have never had a bump in your life you may continue to judge. If not, please shut your hypercritical mouth.

Hypocritical is what you meant? The root hyper is a different meaning.

I like those that throw rocks should not live in glass houses.

However, there is a problem with a school board member driving intoxicated. He represents the people who voted govern the education of our children. He should resign, he is no longer a proper representative.

His congregration will forgive his "slip" that thankfully did not kill or maim another driver on the road.

This comment is not intended to do any amount of judging, as the good Lord will do that for us, but when you make a mistake it is usually followed by consequences.... You make it seem as though his 'struggle within' has been going on for some amount of time... If this would have been a teacher who 'slipped' and landed in the paper, she/he would already be 'terminated'. I feel that ANYONE who wants to take a position that is basically representing our children should deal with any 'struggles within' before hand. I have had plenty of 'bumps' in my life and I took time out to smooth them over before putting my self in a postion where they could give me trouble in the future. For every situation the devil throws at us that is filled with temptation, God creates an exit. With that being said, God please help others, whos stuggles run a little deeper, to find that exit, as sometimes the consequences of man run deep.

I am not judging the man, God will judge him. But a man of God being a drunkard and a public figure has got to get some serious help. A drinking problem and being a public drunk is totally wrong in Gods eyes. I am not a hypocrit, Maybe you have a guilty conscience. So why defend him???

Shouldn't matter given who else got elected to the Board. But then again, doesn't seem like anyone cares to do back ground checks on those they elect.

you know, the Bible doesn't say don't judge, it says he who is without sin cast the first stone, but it also says that Christians are responsible to convict their brothers, not condemn them. condemnation is God's issue. If you don't believe me, read the story of Nathan and Daniel.
I too believe it's a travesty that the muslims view christians as infidels and heretics and hypocrits and then, with all muslim eyes on christians, we have a Pastor...a SENIOR pastor and School Board member who is supposed to lead by example...being inebriated to the point of endangering not only his life (suicide) but the lives of other innocents (murder) because he lacks self-control. I think the whole county needs to be praying that God's warning is taken to his heart and that he and his loved ones recover from this...hopefully, prayer and intercession will lead him to repent.
