US Baptist Pastor Commits Suicide After his Account With Adultery Website "Ashley Madison' Was Exposed

The news came as a shock of one US Baptist pastor who committed suicide after it was discovered his name was part of those exposed for having an account with an adultery website that was hacked recently.

The website 'Ashley Madison' was hacked by some tech guru hackers who released the names of those who had signed up with the Adultery website to the general public of which this pastors name was among.

Due to this revelation and as a clergy man, Pastor John Gibson who has been suffering from depression had to take his own life because he felt so ashamed and couldn't stand the stigma.

Wife of the late pastor Christi Gibson, told CNN, she found her husband body lifeless after he he left a suicide note addressing his struggles with depression and his remorse surrounding the Ashley Madison saga.
which chronicled his demons and his shame at being exposed -- in their New Orleans home on August 24.

"He talked about depression. He talked about having his name on there, and he said he was just very, very sorry," Gibson said as their adult son and daughter sat next to her in a New Orleans studio.

"Nothing is worth the loss of a father and a husband and a friend. It just didn't merit it. It didn't merit it at all."

In addition to his work as a pastor, Gibson, 56, taught at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

"It wasn't so bad that we wouldn't have forgiven it, and so many people have said that to us, but for John, it carried such a shame," she told CNN.

"What we know about him is that he poured his life into other people, and he offered grace and mercy and forgiveness to everyone else, but somehow he couldn't extend that to himself."
