Pastor arrested for waving gun during sermon

Postby stomperrob » Tue Dec 05, 2006 2:51 pm

he was just trying to make a point he said - but he was not legally allowed to have gun seeing as the good Reverend is a convicted felon - seems he was once caught selling cocaine while carrying a gun!
Gun-waving sermon lands pastor in pokey(11/30/06 - MOUNT AIRY, NC) - The pastor of a Mount Airy church accused of brandishing a gun as part of his sermon is free on bond after being charged with possession of a firearm by a felon.

Jerry Wayne "Dusty" Whitaker, 58, of Mount Airy, was convicted in Virginia in 1990 of conspiracy to distribute cocaine and possession of a firearm during drug trafficking.


Members of Whitaker's Victory Baptist Church say they had no knowledge of his criminal background. Whitaker told them he was a retired Virginia state police officer and a retired U.S. marshal who was injured in the line of duty, said Garry Scearce, trustee chairman at Victory Baptist.


Whitaker denies ever telling anyone he was a marshal, but said he worked as a police officer for six years in Montgomery County, Va.


In September, Whitaker reportedly brought a handgun and a shoulder holster to a service.


"He was driving home his point," Scearce said. "He said he was no longer a pistol-toting U.S. marshal.' He was a pastor."


Whitaker said the gun was a toy prop.


"I use parables," he said. "Once I pretended to be a blind man with a cane, glasses and can with coins. Why didnt they arrest me for impersonating a blind man?"


Whitaker was arrested during church services Sunday. He was released Monday after posting a $20,000 bond.

I would hope the elders of that congregation hold a council to rethink their pastor. 8-o :-o

God did not grant this one with skills in judgement....

Whitaker said the gun was a toy prop.


If he had to use a gun as a prop, he could have made it obvious that it was a toy. :-°
