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 Juliet, Tennessee, preaching the Gospel of Trump® Thanks to atheist Jimmy Snow for putting together this clip. The video clip starts at the 18:17 mark.
Bruce Gerencser, 65, lives in rural Northwest Ohio with his wife of 44 years. He and his wife have six grown children and thirteen grandchildren. Bruce pastored Evangelical churches for twenty-five years in Ohio, Texas, and Michigan. Bruce left the ministry in 2005, and in 2008 he left Christianity. Bruce is now a humanist and an atheist.

OK first of all, I was trying to see if any of my relatives or anyone I went to fundamentalist Christian school was in the crowd, but I couldn’t tell. Wow….y’all ARE a bunch of Qs……
(It is Mount Juliet, Tennessee, just a bit outside Nashville. It got hit pretty hard by tornados in March, 2020).
Rural Appalachia. It doesn’t get more Fundy that that. Glad we never moved to that region of the country.
I have a lot – a whole lot – to say, but somehow it all seems to distill to three simple words: Oh. My. God.
Whacked up the side of the head, HOLY! Sometimes the devastation of the assault turns into dances on the preacher stage. Your dance is ever so godly and if others don’t get it, howl and holler, name-call and condemn. Thank-you sweet Jesus of Peace.
With all the hate from left wing groups Atheists and CNN Pastor Locke must be doing something right .
How is it “hate” to point out Locke’s right-wing extremism, homophobia, transphobia, and bigotry? How is it “hate” to point out that if Greg Locke is a Christian so is Satan.
Locke is a conspiratorial white Christian nationalist. Nothing he says or does reminds me of Jesus. But, by all means provide evidence that I am wrong. By all means square the words of Jesus recorded in the gospels with what Locke preaches. I will await your exhaustive defense of one his words.
And then we can talk about his marriage, divorce, remarriage, and his treatment of his first wife.
Are you sure you really want to defend the man?
