A Gun-toting, Crooning Padre

He carries a gun and wears cowboy boots. He sings. He raises money for good causes, and he’s a man of action. And not incidentally, the cloth. Better known as Padre Pistolas, Alfredo Gallegos Lara is the cura of a parish church off in the farm country of Chucándiro, Michoacán. Taking the approach that he’d rather ask for forgiveness than permission, he’s always in some kind of hot water with the Archbishop. The bad boy of Catholic Church is unstoppable. You can’t help but like the guy who has his own website featuring a video and his music. Organized religion could do well with a few more Padre Pistolas.
