If a pastor loses faith? Resign first.
If pastors lose their faith, or no longer agree with the tenets of the faith that their congregants hold (or most of them anyway), I think they have to act in accordance with their conscience and resign. Of course they can preach and argue and debate.
But, in the end, if a pastor loses his/her faith, or a rabbi or imam for that matter (though it's a bit different), they must offer to resign and perhaps should do so,and then work out how they wish to take their changed faith, or lack of faith, or agnosticism, forward personally. But to believe one thing personally and to proclaim another publicly seems to me to be very wrong.
