Do you remember Ken Pagano, the Kentucky pastor who invited members of his church to pack heat when packing the pews? Well, he’s found a new calling:

Pastor Ken Pagano ended his 30-year career last month when he resigned from the New Bethel Church in Louisville, Ky., saying that he wants to focus on church security and Second Amendment rights—a crusade he insists is better fought outside the ministry.

“Thirty years was a good, long run, but it’s time for a change,” Pagano told the Washington Times. “If I can write my own ticket, I want to get involved more in Second Amendment issues as they affect the church, and I can do more from outside the pulpit than from behind it,” Pagano told the paper.

Church security is certainly an issue, but is this the Lord’s work.
