Greg Locke Threatens to Kick Mask-Wearers Out of Church
Right-wing pastor Greg Locke said during his weekly sermon at Global Vision Bible Church in Mount Juliet, Tennessee on Sunday that worshippers who show up for mass that are wearing masks will be removed from the congregation. This is in spite of a 200 percent surge in COVID-19 cases in the Volunteer State since July 1st thanks to the highly transmissible Delta variant of the coronavirus.
“Don’t believe this Delta variant nonsense. Stop it! I know Right Wing Watch watchin’, I don’t care. If they go through round two and you start showing up (with) all these masks and all this nonsense, I will ask you to leave. I will ask you to leave! I am not playing these Democrat games up in this church! If you want to social distance, go to First Baptist Church, but don’t come to this one. I’m done with it! I said I’m done with it! I ain’t playing these stupid games,” Locke hollered into his microphone while he flailed around on the stage.
“A bunch of pastors talking about how much they want to see people heal and they’re afraid to baptize people because of a delta variant — I’m sick of it,” Locke added before declaring that he will never close his church’s doors because of the coronavirus. “They will be serving Frosty’s in hell before we shut this place down.”
Locke issued an identical decree in July of last year during the height of the first wave of the pandemic.
