... well, Paladins were supposed to be immune to the plague, they could very well be immune to the virus/curse/whatever it is that causes continued Worgenism.
Not quite sure how Worgen Curse works completely but i remember nothing mentioning paladins being completely immune to curses or that's just a gameplay mechanic.
Though if a priest and druid who are also immune to disease and curses is susceptible to it can mean paladins getting the curse is feasible just depending on how strong the curse is, and i can say the Worgen one is a damn strong one.
One player made a very valid point about why the Risen have Paladins. The Risen are not in control of their actions. For all we know, the Risen Paladins are in intense pain but can ignore it since they are being controlled by another.

Hell no, there are races that make far less sense for Paladins then Gnomes.
I hate to break this to you but gnomes make less sense as paladins than tauren do. Of course this might seem like an opinion but the reality is, gnomes don't really come to mind when you think of honor and the light, do they?
I would disagree with that. Before the Cataclysm, Gnomes had the same starting area as the Dwarves, and their leader was in Iron Forge. It makes a lot of sense to me that there would be Gnome Paladins, just by way of recruitment by proximity. It's perfectly reasonable to think that some Gnomes may wish to join the order. Considering any class in the game can be an engineer...seems reasonable to me.
EDIT: Taking into account the above, it would take literally zero effort to make Gnomes fit into Paladin Lore. Worgen Paladins, on the other hand, would be very difficult to explain.
