When played straight (or [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism idealistically]] if you happen to be a cynic), the preacher is a GoodShepherd, a force for reason and peace in the community. He usually understands that violence is an option the law has to take sometimes, but weighs heavily against it for civilians or for less-than-emergency situations. Don't think this makes the PreacherMan an easy target, though--when push comes to shove, they'll [[BadassPreacher fight]] for what's right with all their might. Even those who are [[ActualPacifist opposed to violence in all its forms]] can still [[BadassPacifist end a fight by putting themselves in the line of fire]], as few villains are either [[EvenEvilHasStandards impious enough to shoot a messenger of God]] or [[PragmaticVillainy stupid enough to shoot the one person in the town everyone would be willing to defend / avenge]].

** When asked if the Bible doesn't have some "pretty specific" things to say about killing, Book replies "Quite specific. It is, however, somewhat fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps."

* Shepherd Book of ''Series/{{Firefly}}''. Who was also remarkably accurate with firearms. Are you seeing a trend here?

* ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'': The Rev. Robert Alden, who was not only a voice of reason, reassurance and understanding but an active part in the lives of everyone in Walnut Grove. Usually a pacifist, you did not want to make him angry -- as the Gallander brothers found out when they finally pressed their luck with him (and he learns that two of them had gang-raped Caroline Ingalls).
