Gun-Waving Sermon Lands Pastor in Pokey

`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. [..]

“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.’
