|Bishop Burnside, like the Episcopalian female bishop, |
drove drunk, killed a fine person, and fled the scene.
One insurance agency had a simple rule. When someone wanted to work there and had a DUI, they said, "No thanks." The general agent received a big bonus from the company for hiring, but the general agent figured a DUI signaled a habitual, out of control drunk.
Blood and urine tests are common, even for hiring $9 an hour employees. They reveal whiskey enzymes in the liver (heavy drinking) and various illegal drugs. "Sorry, kid, we can't use you."
Many ecclesiastical pests would no longer be around if the SPs said, "We can't risk you running down some kid's mother or father and that story being in the news. Besides that, you have problems and need help."
|Cook was installed as bishop three sheets to the wind - and with a DUI record.|
She wiped out this family man, who was biking.
Two young people in my Sturgis congregation
were killed by drunk drivers, devastating their families.

Several readers have emailed to say that WELS is indeed a drunken culture with all the attributes.
- One is being super rigid and hyper about any criticism.
- Another is the low level of thinking and problem solving. One official was known for his drinking and inability to deal with any practical mission problem. He simply issued edicts.
- Finally, what looks like incompetence is really drinking on the job, inability to get work done, and confused thinking under the influence.
