Sounds of Fundamentalism: Pastor Greg Locke Loses His Mind Over Being Required to Wear a Mask

pastor greg locke

The Sounds of Fundamentalism is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video clip of Greg Locke, pastor of Global Vision Bible Church in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee whining about being required to wear a mask at Dunkin Donuts. Locke somehow, some way compares mask wearing to abortion.

    People like him are the reason the USA has an out of control pandemic on its hands. People are dying. (And personally people like him are the reason I am going to have to quarantine myself after I take my daughter to college in Tennessee and return home to New Jersey). I am just sick of these selfish dumba$$es who think wearing a mask is a big f%$&@!* imposition. What a whiny, selfish crybaby.

    Not all bullies are stupid but Greg Locke is both a raging bully and he is stupid. His ignorant rant demonstrates that evangelical belief does not help the bent brain; in many cases, evangelical belief confirms and supports ignorance and hatefulness. Haters will hate, some of them hating in the service of Jesus.

    While not all evangelical Christians are like this guy, far too many are which should drive the final nail into the coffin which asserts that Christians are supernaturally changed for the better. If there really were a heaven filled with people like this wouldn’t that really be hell?

    I’m sure they also have a ‘no shoes, no shirts’ policy. Wonder if he’ll be shedding those next. This isn’t the government telling him to wear a mask, it’s a place of business that has right to implement it’s own policies. He has a right to go somewhere else.

    How telling that almost immediately he gets onto the big obsession, abortion. Just can’t help himself. I’m only surprised he didn’t shoehorn homosexuality into that little rant as well.
