With the new rules update you can only charge the unit you shot at, but the Priests special rule; Righteous Fury says you must always charge if enemies are within reach. Does this mean that you could fire at one unit (which would be out of charge distance) and then charge and enemy unit within range even though you shot at a different unit?
You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.
I would say yes but it is abit of double rules try asking the tec priests the email adress is on the GW site they shoudl be able to answere your question.

If you can only charge what you shoot, and the rule says you MUST charge the closest enemy, I'd say that you MUST shoot the closest enemy (or not shoot at all, if you have non-assault weapons) so that you can follow the Priest's rule.
They made a similar ruling for this in another army list once. There is an army that HAS to charge the nearest enemy, I think this is a World Eaters thing, and somone asked in the FAQ if that meant that they could rapid fire their weapons and still charge.
The reply from GW was no, because the two rules are mutually exclusive. You HAVE to do anything in the rules that say you HAVE to do. However, you don't HAVE to shoot, which means no shooting before charging.
